Cosy Christmas Book Tag

I thought I’d do another Christmas tag here on my blog and I saw this one and it looked like fun. This is the cosy christmas book tag and you can find a link to the original video of it here.

QUESTIONS:

1. Twinkling lights – What is the most beautiful book you own?

The Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth – I don’t know if I would say this is the MOST beautiful book I own but it’s definitely one of them, I really like the cover and the end pages.

2. The perfect tree – Will you pay more to get the prettiest edition of a book?

No, unless there is only a very small price difference between an average edition of a book and a really pretty/special edition of a book.

3. Build a snowman – Make a Christmas book stack (colour or theme).

I posted this picture either last year or the year before on my instagram (kylaslibrary) of a book snowman.

4. Crackling fire – What book makes you feel warm and cosy?

tgc1

Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie.

5. Knee high socks – What is the longest book you’ve read?

doa

I think the longest book I’ve read is Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4) by Diana Gabaldon, which is nearly 1200 pages long.

6. Ugly sweaters – What’s the ugliest book you own?

stn

I didn’t really know what book to choose for this question so I decided to just choose a book that I read this year that I didn’t like and it also has a cover I dislike too, which is Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno Garcia.  I wouldn’t say this was the ugliest book I own because I do like the colours on the cover but I’m choosing it because its one of my most recent disliked covers.

7. Blizzards – A book set in winter, or a book that gives you the chills/has dark themes.

asos

A Snowfall of Silver by Laura Wood. This book doesn’t give me chills and it doesn’t have dark themes but it is set during the winter months and the characters even get snowed in.

8. Home for the holidays – For the rereaders out there, are there any books that feel like “going home”?

cob

The Shadowhunter series by Cassandra Clare – I feel very attached to the Shadowhunter world and I always love delving back into this world.

Tis The Season Book Tag

I love doing book tags and I’ve been seeing this one about and I thought I’d do it. Here is a link to the original video of ‘Tis the Season Book Tag’. I didn’t realise until I was almost done picking my answers for this tag that the books I picked for my answers all have blue on the cover so now I have a blue themed Tis The Season book tag.

QUESTIONS:

1. Do you have a favourite Winter read?

asos

I didn’t really have a specific book in mind for this question but I just finished reading A Snowfall of Silver by Laura Wood and loved it and I think this is such a perfect book for winter.

2. Find a book with blue on the cover!

cid

A Snowfall of Silver probably suits this question too but I decided to choose Cinderella Is Dead by Kalynn Bayron instead.

3. Find a book you’d use as the star on a Christmas tree?

twos

The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum. This is one of my favourite books of this year and I chose it because it has the word star in the title.

4. Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a Winter vacation!

There is a fictional land in The Oremere Chronicles by Helen Scheuerer called Havennesse that was described as being a very snowy and wintry. I think the characters went there in the second book, Reign of Mist.

5. Pick one fictional character you’d take with you on your Winter vacation!

tgc1

Tori from The Guild Codex: Spellbound series. I love Tori’s personality so I think she’d be a lot of fun to go on winter vacation with.

6. Name one book on your Wishlist this year!

sd

Seven Devils by Laura Lam and Elizabeth May.

7. Favourite Holiday drink, treat, & movie?

I don’t think I have a specific drink and treat in mind for this question but my favourite Christmas movie is definitely The Muppets Christmas Carol.

Have you read any of these books? What would be some of your answers to these questions?
