Christmas Stocking Tag

It’s Boxing Day, if you celebrate that. It’s not celebrated here in the U.S., unfortunately, so it’s a work day for those who work on the weekends.

For me, it’s another tag day! ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh yes! This bout of Christmas book tags will continue through the weekend. Today I’m doing the Christmas Stocking Tag, which was created by Kate at Reading Through Infinity, because I couldn’t find a Boxing Day-themed book tagย (and here I thought there was a book tag for everything. I was gravely mistaken).

You get up on Christmas morning and your stocking is full! You take it down and start to unwrap the treats inside. The first thing you see isโ€ฆ

An orange! Which book is refreshing and vibrant, both inside and out?

I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever Afterย by Skottie Young (illus.)

For some reason, the “refreshing” part of the question stumped me, so I focused on the “vibrant” part instead and chose Skottie Young’s silly fantasy comic bookย I Hate Fairyland, which is about a 40-year-old woman stuck in a 6-year-old’s body in fairyland. The story is silly and fun with bright, vibrant illustrations. Many people love it, but it didn’t work for me.

It’s Christmas!! My favorite time of year. ๐Ÿ˜€

We aren’t really celebrating Christmas this year in my household, but I’m still excited for the holiday and I do hope you all are having a wonderful, safe, socially distanced holiday season.

To celebrate Christmas on my blog, I’ve decided to do the Christmas Book Blogger Tag, which I found on Whimsy Pages. It was created by Trish at Between My Lines, whose blog seems to be down.

What Is Your Favourite Christmas Scene In A Book?

the Battle of Christmas Eve in the Nevermoor series

I recently completed the latest installment in the Nevermoor series โ€”ย Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crowย โ€” so it’s still on mind. That’s why I selected its annual Battle of Christmas Eve for this answer. Saint Nicholas and the Yule Queen battle to show off their magical powers and wow the Nevermoorians, and it’s amazing. I think it’s a wonderful celebration.ย (Btw, I lean more toward Saint Nicholas (because gifts! ๐Ÿ˜†) than the Yule Queen because I’m not a big fan of snow.)

Christmas Carol & Songs Book Tags

I’ve been saving up all the Christmas book tags I find for this time of year. So from now through Christmas, and maybe a little after that, I’m posting nothing but Christmas-themed book tags. ๐Ÿ˜€

Today is a two-in-one post featuring the Christmas Carol Book Tag and the Christmas Song Book Tag.


Christmas Carol Book Tag

The Christmas Carol Book Tag was created by booktuber Lauren Wade and is based onย A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, which I haven’t yet read and probably should this Christmas.

Ghost of Christmas Past โ€” A book that was a childhood favourite

The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton, illus. by Jan McCafferty

I believe Blyton’s Faraway Tree books were among those I read as a kid and loved and that got me interested in the fantasy genre.ย The Enchanted Wood is about three siblings who move to the country with their parents and discover an amazing tree in the wood behind their house. Atop the tree is a portal to various worlds, which the kids explore with the inhabitants of the tree. I loved this book as a kid but not so much when I reread it last year.

It’s Boxing Day!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

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!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ˜›

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.
