I love book tags, and although I have never really been tagged in one I thought that this would be a great way to get really into not only the Blogmas spirit but also the Christmas spirit.
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 so hard, I have so many stand alone favourites. I sometimes love a stand alone instead of a series because sometimes it’s lovely to read just one book and not have to worry about the sequels. The one that comes to mind would have to be A Monster Calls
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?
My one true pairing is Tatiana and Alexander from The Bronze Horseman trilogy, which is I am having a real hankering to reread. I may have to make the time!
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?
The Illuminae Files trilogy really blew me away this time around. I am definitely recommending and shouting about it! Some of my favourite 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 an obvious choice and if you know me then this should not be a complete surprise at all. Harry Potter will always be on this list, and nothing will ever knock it off.
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 love villains, I think I actually love the villains more than I love the main characters. My all-time favourite would have to be
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?
I love world building! I think my all time favourite would have to be the A Game of Thrones world. I could get lost in that world forever!
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? Who’s your favorite animal sidekick?
I actually really struggled with this one when I was thinking about the books I read, I finally settled on The Golden Compass. I love Lyra and Pan’s relationship!
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?
The Gilded King has the best descriptions of food and cooking food. I actually feel hungry when they’re cooking their meals.
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 kickass female lead?
Celaena Sardothien is one of my favourite female characters EVER! Plus she gets better all the way through the books and grows so much as a woman!
ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.
How about your favourite leading lad?
Elias from An Ember in the Ashes! I adore this series and I love the relationships that Elias makes with people throughout this books, plus the guy who does the audiobook sounds like a beaut.
ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: ELEVEN PIPES PIPING.
What is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)
I love This Savage Song, I thought the use of music and instruments throughout this book and the way it was integrated into the story and plot.
ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING.
Drum roll please…what is your favorite read of this year?
My favourite read for this year would definitely have to be An Ember in the Ashes! I loved this series, and the characters involved.
I tag anyone who reads this post! I wanna see which books you decide to have on your list!
Let me know if there are any other book tags that I should check out! I would love to try some more!
