Hi friends and happy December! I’m here again with another book tag, this time it’s a festive one! It’s the 12 days of Christmas tag and was created by Ashley at Falling Down the Book Hole.
ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE
THE PARTRIDGE STOOD ALONE IN THE PEAR TREE? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE STAND ALONE?
This is a tough one, as I actually read a lot of standalone books, they’re my preferred type. But, I would have to pick a recent read called Silent Pretty Things by O J Lovaz, it just really has stuck with me since I read it a few weeks back and instantly came to my mind.
ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TWO TURTLE DOVES
LOVE IS IN THE AIR! WHO IS YOUR ONE TRUE PAIRING?
ANNABETH AND PERCY. I love them sm😭😭😭😭😭
ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: THREE FRENCH HENS
IN THE SPIRIT OF THREES, WHAT IS THE BEST TRILOGY YOU HAVE READ?
I’m not sure if this counts as a trilogy, because I think there are more books that relate directly to the world? But, I would have to say The Mistborn books.
ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FOUR CALLING BIRDS
SINCE SERIES USUALLY CONSIST OF FOUR OR MORE BOOKS, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SERIES?
This is a really hard choice between the PJO series and the Goosebumps horrorland series, they both remind me of my childhood/teenage years, so it’s a hard choice!
ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS
ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL! WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE VILLAIN/ANTAGONIST?
I hate to say this, but I’m really struggling to pick one for this!
ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SIX GEESE A LAYING
CREATION IS A BEAUTIFUL THING. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WORLD/WORLD-BUILDING?
My favourite world has to be the Final Empire and the world of Scadrial from the Mistborn series. It was just so beautifully built up whilst I was reading the books, and is one that I regularly think about.
ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SEVEN SWANS A SWIMMING
WHO NEEDS SEVEN SWANS WHEN ALL IT TAKES IS ONE GOOD ANIMAL SIDEKICK TO MAKE A HERO ROCK! WHO’S YOUR FAVORITE ANIMAL SIDEKICK?
Hedwig. She is my fave.
ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: EIGHT MAIDS A MILKING
MILK IS SO 18TH CENTURY. WHICH BOOK OR SERIES TAKES BEVERAGES/FOOD TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL?
OOOOOH, this is a tough one! I don’t really read a lot of books that discuss food or drinks, so this one was hard but I’m going to settle on Love Amongst The Recipes by Carol Cram. While I didn’t actually enjoy this book, the food within it was worth reading it for!
ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: NINE LADIES DANCING
DANCING IS JUST ONE SKILL OF A LADY! WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE KICK-ASS FEMALE LEAD?
I’m going to have to pick Vin from the Mistborn series.
ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING
LEAPING LORDS? HOW ABOUT WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE LEADING LAD?
Favourite would have to be Percy Jackson, cliché and expected from me, I know, but no other character brings me quite as much joy as he does!
ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: ELEVEN PIPERS PIPING:
WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT MUSIC? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OR BOOKISH THING THAT DEALS WITH MUSIC? (IT CAN BE ABOUT MUSIC, REFERENCE MUSIC A LOT ETC.)
This one suddenly came to me while I was trying to think of books that included music! I’m going with Chopping Spree by Angela Sylvaine. It has loads of references to 80s music, so it was a HUGE hit with me.
ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING
DRUM ROLL PLEASE…WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE READ OF THIS YEAR?
Do I have to pick just one? That seems extremely unfair when I’m just finalising my list of 20 favourite reads of the year! Be sure to come back to my blog and check that list out when it goes live in the next couple of weeks.
As always, please consider yourself tagged if you want to take part! And thank you, for all of your continued love and support this year, I am grateful for every single person that likes, comments or otherwise interacts with my blog, it makes me realise everything I put into it is worthwhile.
Until next time, Em xxx
