The Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag is the first winter-related tag I am doing this year and it was created by my friend Astra over at A Stranger’s Guide to Novels. You should definitely go and check out her original post! But what is up with all you guys being so creative and making your own tags! I am so impressed! But without further ado, let’s get on with it!
- Thank the curator
- Tag 5 people to spread the Christmas joy
- Have fun!
1. Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree!
Just ONE!?!?! I’m trying to think of something I probably wouldn’t buy myself and that’s Once Upon a Time – Red’s Untold Tale! Ruby is one of my favourite characters on the show and I already have the Once Upon a Time version of the Grimm fairy tales. I bet it would look nice next to it!
2. A book you’ll be reading during the Christmas Season!
That’s kind of difficult because it entirely depends on what I get for Christmas. But in the unlikely event that I don’t get any books, I’d like to refer you to my December TBR.
3. Favourite Christmas Movie?
You simply cannot go wrong with Love Actually! It’s adorable each and every time!
4. Do you like snow?
YAAAAS! But only the really fluffy, untouched and white one. Since I live in a quite busy city, it turns into grey mud way too soon.
5. Name a character you would like to spend your Christmas day with!
Again, just ONE!?!?!? My brain is close to an overload because it’s so difficult to decide … technically you didn’t write the word “one” though! Well, I’d either like to spend it with all the characters from the Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, Fangirl, The Martian, Bitten, Landline, The Night Circus … I LOVE ALL MY BOOKS!
6. To give or to receive?
The best is a little bit of both, if you know what I mean? Last year my family donated a goat in my name to a family in need in a developing country. I got a postcard with a really funny and cute goat on it and the family has the animal. That’s what I call a win-win!
7. What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
NARNIA! I just associate it with snow and the Pevensie kids got great presents from Santa. Also, I’ve been watching way too much of the Royals lately and William Moseley is just so swoon-worthy. So, preferably, I’d want to spend it with Prince Liam/King Peter …
8. Fondest Christmas memory?
I think it has to be the Christmas I got my hamster. He was my favourite pet from all the ones I had, but I should probably mention that all the ones before him were goldfish. Either way, my family made me sing a song and when I turned around I saw the hamster cage and I didn’t realise that he was in there. I thought he was a cardboard figure of a hamster that I might get in the next days. He was standing there, just staring at me, apparently having been either mesmerized or traumatized by my singing. (Wish I could show a picture, but I have none on my laptop …)
9. Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly!)
No … at some point it sounded like Christmas pee and I had to stop because I was laughing so hard.
Tagging time! I TAG:
- Michelle @The Writing Hufflepuff
- Victoria @Addlepates and Book Nerds
- Stephanie @Adventures of a Bibliophile
- Jesse @Books at Dawn
- Joey @Thoughts and Afterthoughts
*As per usual, feel free to ignore the tag if you don’t want to do it. There will never be peer pressure on my blog!
