Characters of the Year Book Tag | 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag on here, not since Christmas, to be exact, which is a crime. So here I am with the Characters of the Year Book Tag, or award, if you want to think of it that way, which I found on the Orangutan Librarian. I consider myself tagged by her because I can.

After a little searching, I found that the tag was created by Amanda, A Brighter Shade of Hope.

Favorite male character of the year

Durzo Blint

Flippin Durzo Blint, the badass assassin from Brent Week’s The Way of Shadows. Blint’s personality is a major reason why I enjoyed this book and consider it a favorite. It was such an entertaining read.

Christmas Book Tags

It’s Boxing Day!!! 😀

Okay, okay, there’s no reason for me to be this excited for Boxing Day, especially since it’s not celebrated in the U.S., but I still have some leftover energy from last night’s Christmas dinner so WOOHOO BOXING DAY!!! 😀 😀 😀

I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day. Mine was filled with lots of love and cheer from family and friends and a strong mug of Moscow Mule. Have you ever had that cocktail? It was my first time trying it last night and now I love it. Anyway, I’m here to celebrate Boxing Day on my blog by doing a couple of Christmas-themed tags in one post. Yes, I like to group such things so settle in to receive some book recommendations, most of which I’ve mentioned often on here. 😛

Christmas Book Tag

I found this one over on Rachel’s blog, Life of a Female Bibliophile. (Hope you had a great Christmas Rachel with lots of pepperminty snacks!) The tag was created by the Moor Maiden, whose blog seems to be down.

Christmas Song Book Tag

Haha! Hehe! Heehee! Hoho! Another book tag for Christmas, yes.

This one was created by booktuber Hailey in Bookland.

“You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” — Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.


That’s Crowley, the demon, from the TV show Supernatural. He’s so sarcastic sometimes, I like his personality and I like the rough voice of the actor who plays him, Mark Sheppard. It’s hard for me not to think of him as Crowley when I see him in another show.

‘Tis the Season

Omg, Christmas has crept up on me and I’m totally unprepared for it. But, as I scramble around to buy presents, I’ll try to get in the holiday mood by doing Christmas-themed book tags on here, starting with this one which was created by Richard Media Geek. I enjoy watching his videos sometimes.

Do you have a favorite winter read?

I don’t, but I think the following are perfect reads for the winter:

Time Bubble Tag

I really wanted to post a book review or something this week, but I went out on the weekend so there was no time to sit and think about what I’d read. So instead, look out for a few tags and memes I’ll post, like this one which was created by the Book Loving Pharmacist.

What book(s) (or audiobook) have you been meaning to read for a long time but haven’t gotten around to reading:

Soulless by Gail Carriger

It’s a paranormal novel filled with various supernatural creatures, like vampires and werewolves, and is about a woman, a spinster, who has the ability to negate supernatural powers because she’s soulless.

Emperor’s New Clothes Tag

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done a tag (only 3 days, but whatever). I’ve wanted to do this one ever since the Orangutan Librarian created and tagged me for it.

I actually didn’t know anything about The Emperor’s New Clothes story before being tagged for this. The only thing I’ve seen that relates to the story is the Disney cartoon, The Emperor’s New Groove, with this dude —

It was one of Disney’s stupidest shows. Anyway, the Orangutan Librarian has included a song of The Emperor’s New Clothes story in her post, so now I know what it’s all about (and realize it’s sometimes referred to in other works, like Mary Poppins, which I watched a couple days ago). I really like the song. I played it over and over again until it was stuck in my head. Now I want to play it again, but first, the tag. (I’ll choose from the books I read this year.)
