It’s almost Christmas, which means it’s time for another Christmas book tag! I haven’t done as many holiday book tags this year as I did last, and it wasn’t feeling quite like Christmas. So I’m glad Michelle at Book Adventures tagged me for this one, because I needed to get at least one more in before Christmas.
Anticipation – The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating.
For 2017, I am highly anticipating Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, V. E. Schwab’s A Conjuring of Light, and Pierce Brown’s Iron Gold. Oh, and the next book in the Diviners series by Libba Bray (if it actually makes it out next year).
Christmas Songs & Carols – What book or author can you not help but sing it’s praises.
Definitely Neil Gaiman – everything he writes, I love. I’m also a bit obsessed with V. E. Schwab. One of my goals for 2017 is to read all of the books she’s written that I haven’t read yet (specifically, The Archived).
Gingerbread Houses – What book or series has wonderful world building.
For this one, I’m going with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (the Kingkiller Chronicles). I haven’t yet read the second book, but I will be very soon. I’m saving it as a reward for finishing my thesis.
A Christmas Carol – Favorite classic or one that you want to read.
Actually, I do want to read A Christmas Carol. But I think the classic I want to read most at the moment is Les Miserables.
Christmas Sweets – What book would you love to receive for Christmas.
This year, I really want The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. Specifically, the British editions because the are so pretty. The US covers don’t even come close.
Candles in the Window – What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling.
My answer for this will always be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It’s one of the books I read over and over and never get tired of.
Christmas Trees & Decorations – What are some of your favorite book covers.
Any of the Vintage Classics editions – I have the Austen and Brontë ones, and really want to get the Virginia Woolf collection soon!
Christmas Joy – What are some of your favorite things about Christmas.
I just really love the whole cozy feeling of the season and spending time with family. I also love giving gifts, so that’s fun.
In the comments, share your favorite thing about Christmas and one book you’re hoping to see under your tree this year!
