The Joy of Christmas Book Tag!


Christmas is SO close now and I love all the tags related with it! This time Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much prompted me to do the Joy of Christmas Book Tag! We continue to steal each other’s answers for those things, because apparently our minds think very alike. Prepare for some very close responses again and check out her post to spot the similarities!

1.  Anticipation

The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

Okay, I just HAVE TO steal Cátia’s answer, because quite frankly, I haven’t been this excited about a release in a long time. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare will be the new installment in the Shadowhunter universe and I CANNOT WAIT TO READ IT!

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1)

2. Christmas Songs & Carols

The MartianWhat book or author can you not help but sing its praises?

For the book, I’d definitely go with the Martian and for author Tahereh Mafi. Do I need to explain this? Is it weird that the Martian wasn’t written by Tahereh Mafi?

3. Gingerbread Houses

What book or series has wonderful world building?

I don’t know why, but I really feel like saying the Inkheart series. It plays a lot in the real world, but then again also in this fictional place and I love how the lines blur together.

4. A Christmas Carol

Favorite classic or one that you want to read

I was really tempted to say Persuasion as well, because it’s my favourite Austen book, but I am trying to diversify my answers from Cátia’s. So, I’ll go with the Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, because I loved that one too!


5. Christmas Sweets

What book would you love to receive for Christmas

I’ve already mentioned a couple of books that I would like to get. I don’t even know which one to say, because my TBR seriously seems to never end! I think I’d really like to read The Rest of Us Just Live Here soon though …


6. Candles in the Window

What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling

Fangirl! I just want to curl up in my bed with a cup of hot chocolate and cuddle with the book … which is not weird at all!


7. Christmas Trees & Decorations

What are some of your favorite book covers?

Again, this will contain some of Cátia’s answers!

8. Christmas Joy

What are some of your favorite things about Christmas And/Or some of your favorite Christmas memories?

I love think back to when I was little and spent time at my grandma’s on Christmas Eve and when I got back home the tree was all made up. My mum said that the Christkind (we don’t have Santa here) has helped her and that I just missed her. I love how much more magical Christmas was back then!

  1. Is it weird that The Great Gatsby was my second choice for my favorite classic?? I love that book.
    I need Lady Midnight. It’s been a year since I read anything from the Shadowhunters universe and my life is lacking on Cassandra Clare’s books

  2. I adore the cover for Lady Midnight! ❤ I'm not really exited for it, as I haven't read any of the Mortal Instrument books. I have to get to them first. I haven't read anything by Tahereh Mafi (though I own the whole Shatter Me trilogy) – shame on me. I seriously need to fix that and read those books! 😀
    Thank you for tagging me as well. ❤
