Today I will be doing the Bookish Christmas book tag. Thank you to the lovely Erika @ And On She Reads for tagging me to do this. If you haven’t already, go check out her wonderful blog!
This tag was originally created by Callum McLaughlin.
Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.
Demons of the Ocean (REVIEW HERE), which is the first book in the Vampirates series by Justin Somper, which has become my favourite series of all time, and my ultimate comfort read.
The ghost of Christmas past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?
There isn’t any that I like to revisit at Christmas, but I do like to reread the Vampirates series quite regularly.
Christmas tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.
The Six Stories series by Matt Wesolowski. This has become one of my favourite series ever, and each book is better than the last!
Friends and family: Name a book with fantastic characters.
The Inheritance Games series. The Hawthorne brothers are just so infectious!
Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.
Circe by Madeline Miller, which has to be one of the most gorgeous covers ever, with and without the cover jacket!
Christmas cards: Name a book that carries a great message.
The Last Bear by Hannah Gold (REVIEW HERE). This is an incredibly beautiful story that I could read over and over again, and it has a very important message about climate change.
Ice and snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.
I’ve been quite lucky and haven’t read many books that have made me feel like this, but Nothing But Blackened Teeth by Cassandra Khaw (REVIEW HERE) definitely did. I was so disappointed.
Christmas lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.
I actually haven’t read many books that I would consider big, purely because they’re so intimidating… But I have read IT by Stephen King, and I loved it (apart from THAT scene).
Mince pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.
Silverwing by Kenneth Steven (REVIEW HERE). This story is cute, heart warming, and has a super satisfying ending. It’s also a little heartbreaking at times too, and it’s brilliantly written.
Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?
I would choose Demons of the Ocean, but I’ve used the Vampirates series to answer a couple of these prompts already, so I’ll choose something different. I will go for Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh (REVIEW HERE).
Spreading the festive cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love.
