The Jingle Bell Book Tag

It’s day 9 of my 12 days of Blogmas!

Every year I share a Christmas tag but it’s been too long since my last book tag. So today I thought I’d share a festive book tag!

I recently saw this one for the first time over on Bookish Laura and couldn’t resist giving it a try 😀

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” – What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?

There’s always a list of books that I want to read but after seeing the film adaptation this year, TATBILB by Jenny Han jumped to the top of my list! The film was so heartwarming and made me smile so much. I’ve heard only good things about the books and would love to feel more of those fuzzy feelings this Christmas!

“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time” – What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

I haven’t read a lot of new books this year because I have been rereading Harry Potter for the first time in about 10 years (and I’m absolutely loving it!!!) But if I have to pick a book that I enjoyed this year that wasn’t Harry Potter I’d definitely say Eve of Man by Tom and Giovanna Fletcher.

Elf – What book unleashes your inner child?

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. The entire series. With every book I reread I rediscover the magic and am constantly interrupting Will while he’s watching YouTube videos to tell him about something that didn’t happen in the movies! It’s so exciting 😀

“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas” – Which book has most festive look to it?

I definitely struggled with this one because I can’t think of many Christmas book covers! But this is probably the most festive one on my bookshelves at the moment. Let it Snow by John Green, specifically the Penguin UK paperback from 2013. It’s a beautiful silvery-blue colour and has large paper snowflakes on the front.

The Grinch – Your favourite villain…

Without a doubt, Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket! Count Olaf is clearly a little unhinged but he’s a very creative and often very funny villain.

The Holiday – Name your favourite TWO couples…

I’ve got sooo many favourites so this was difficult! I’ve actually retyped my answer so many times because every time I started to explain my choices I’d think of someone else! For now I’ve settled on Nora and Patch from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and Clary and Jace from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. (Ten minutes from now that might change to Max and Fang from Maximum Ride by James Patterson and Mr and Mrs Weasley from Harry Potter haha)

What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig. It starts an honest conversation about a difficult and sensitive subject and hopefully leads to some understanding. It is a powerful book full of hope and is a comforting reminder to anyone and everyone that you are never alone.

I had so much fun answering these questions and definitely forgot how much I love taking part in book tags.

Are you wishing for any books this Christmas? Let me know what you’re excited to read!
