Christmas Eve Book Tag

It’s my favorite time of year, and despite how busy I’ve been lately, I am very happy because some wonderfully amazing things have been happening that I didn’t expect. I keep pinching myself to make sure I’m not dreaming about having achieved a major goal.

My plan was to bring the Christmas cheer to my blog by doing Christmas-themed book tags all week, but I wasn’t feeling well the past 2 days, so I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday.

BUT! I’m back in the Christmas spirit now, so I’ll kick things off with the Christmas Eve Book Tag — since it is Christmas Eve. It was created by booktuber Sam’s Nonsense, whose channel introduced me to Robin Hobb’s books. I found this tag over on Embuhleelist, my buddy-reader in all things Hobb — and now Joe Abercrombie, lol.


Christmas Eve Morning: What is a book you wake up excited to read? (It can either be one you anticipate reading or one you read in the past that you want to get back into.)

Velvet comic book series by by Ed Brubaker, illus. by Steve Epting

I’ve read the first and second volumes and would like to reread them and then round out the series by completing the third. It’s sort of a mystery comic book series about a woman working at a secret agency who’s framed for a murder. I enjoyed it and was hooked.

Christmas Characters Tag

Here’s another Christmas tag that has been too long on my to-do list! It sounds like a cute one.

I stumbled across it while Falling Down the Book Hole back in 2019, and finally, I’m now doing it.  The Christmas Characters Tag was created by Anthony at Keep Reading Forward.


Santa Clause: A Gift You Received or Want This Year

The Deep by Mayur Vayeda & Tushar Vayeda (illus.)

I would LOVE to get a copy of this book as a gift, but I know no one will gift it to me, so most likely I’ll gift it to myself for my birthday in the new year.

Holiday Drinks Book Tag

Cue all the Christmas and winter-themed book tags I’ll post for the next two weeks because I found a bunch of such tags over the years and want to do them all! Ho! Ho! Ho!

I’ll kick things off with the Holiday Drinks Book Tag, which seems to have originated on the blog Browsing for Books, but that blog doesn’t seem to be active. However, I was lucky enough to find the tag over on Way Too Fantasy.


Hot Chocolate | Marshmallows and chocolate and whipped cream, oh my!
Recommend a book that’s sweet through and through.

Pandora by Victoria Turnbull

It’s a children’s picture book about a lonely fox who helps a bird heal and how the bird helps the fox feel less lonely. It’s a sweet read that I actually didn’t like much when I first read it, but I think I’d appreciate it more now if I should reread it.

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! 😀 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 tag (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 is…

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

I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever After 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 book 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.

Christmas Book Blogger Tag

It’s Christmas!! My favorite time of year. 😀

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 — Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow — 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. (Btw, I lean more toward Saint Nicholas (because gifts! 😆) 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. 😀

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 on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, which I haven’t yet read and probably should this Christmas.

Ghost of Christmas Past — 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. 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.

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.
