I was tagged by Heather at The Sassy Book Geek and Kat at Life and Other Disasters to do the Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag. I love the holiday season, and am glad I got to do a book tag to celebrate! And, in case you didn’t already notice, it’s snowing on my blog now, so this tag is really fitting.

Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree.
That’s a long list! I’d definitely love to see an ARC of Morning Star by Pierce Brown, because I can’t wait until February. But if I’m being more realistic, I think the top book on my Christmas list this year is a copy of Ray Bradbury’s short stories. Though, personally, I think special or just beautiful editions of my favorite books are the best gifts!
A book you’ll be reading during the Christmas Season.
I’m actually planning on reading two Christmas-y books this year: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and My True Love Gave to Me, which is a short story anthology edited by Stephanie Perkins. Despite the fact that I love Christmas music and movies, I’ve realized that I rarely tailor my reading to the holiday, so I’m excited to do so this year!
Favourite Christmas Movie.
Definitely Elf! I’ve already watched it twice in the past month. It’s just the best movie. I also really love classic Christmas movies like White Christmas. Oh, and the claymation Rudolph! My ugly Christmas sweater is a black sweatshirt with Christmas lights and the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph (this one).
Do you like snow?
Yes! Although I live in a place where there is none. But when I lived in Boston, winter was always my favorite season. The snow is so beautiful, and I really love the cold.
Name a character you you would like to spend your Christmas day with.
Hmmm…. this is a hard question! My brain immediately went to Harry Potter characters, so I’m going with Neville Longbottom. Because he’s been my book crush since I was like thirteen.
To give or to receive?
I definitely like getting gifts (who doesn’t?), but I really enjoy getting gifts for others.
What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
Hogwarts for sure! I think that would be the best Christmas.
Fondest Christmas memory?
When I was little, my family had a tradition of driving slowly around the neighborhood to see all the Christmas lights. My sisters and I would stand on the back seat and hang our heads out of the sunroof of my dad’s car, which was always a lot of fun.
Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly!)
Wow that is way more difficult than I thought, but I did it! Ok, fine, I did it on the second try.
I really enjoyed this tag! I’m inspired to do some holiday reading now. Hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season – no matter what holiday you celebrate!
