“You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.

“All I Want for Christmas is You” 

Which book to you most hope to see under your Christmas tree?

Image result for the raven boysI recently did a post all about the books I want for Christmas, so for this question, I’ll choose something a little different. This is very odd, but I am the kind of e-book reader who likes to own physical copies of their favourite books. I know, I know, I already have a Kindle copy, but you just can’t beat a beautiful array of books adorning your shelves, especially if you know that you love them all! Thus, I really want to get my hands on The Raven Cycle in physical copies. I might just have to buy them post-Christmas. Boxing Day Sales, anyone?

“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

Name a character that overcomes major obstacles and learns to believe in themselves.

Image result for harry potter and the cursed childI just read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child the other day, and I loved it Albus definitely stood out to me as someone who needs a confidence boost right from the start. His character development in this play is really heartening, and I was so thrilled to read all about his experiences. He had definitely learned to believe in himself by the end!


“Santa Claus is Coming to Town”

Image result for city of heavenly firea) Which character do you think would be on the top of the naughty list?

Sebastian from the latter half of The Mortal Instruments series. Cor blimey, he got up to some naughty-list-worthy antics!

b) Which character do you think would be at the top of the nice list?

Perfect contrast: Jace. He is always trying his best and doing all he can to save his loved ones, even – and often – sacrificing himself in the process.


“Frosty the Snowman”

Which book just melts your heart?

carry on 3.jpgCarry On just melts my ice-cold heart everytime I think about it. God, I love it so much! I’m deifnitely going to have to reread this book in the New Year!

Also, have you all heard? Carry On is being rereleased with a new cover! (Left) I might just have to buy another copy…

“Feliz Navidad”

Choose a book that takes place in a country other than your own.

Image result for sula's voyage catherine torresThere are quite a few books that take place away from England, but I wanted to choose something extra diverse for this. Thus, I present to you Sula’s Voyage. This is the first book I ever read that is based in The Philippines, and I loved every second of it, including learning all about the unique culture. Catherine Torres, the author, was so great at including and explaining loads of native customs that I’d never heard of before. It was amazing!

“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

Which holiday themed book do you use to spread the Christmas joy?

Image result for my true love gave to meFrankly, I may as well be a paid promoter for My True Love Gave to Me, because I rave about it all year round. This is my favourite Christmas book by far, and I never get bored of it, year after year! This is an anthology of 12 short stories, which is probably why I love it so much – I can read one story here, another there, one before Christmas dinner, another just before dessert. Also, the cover is gorgeous.


“Sleigh Ride”

Which fictional character would you choose to spend the holidays with (doesn’t have to be a love interest!)

Image result for fangirl bookFor this, I have to choose Cath from Fangirl. We are so alike, and I think we’d get on like a house on fire! Also, she loves Baz and Simon even more than I do – I mean, she wrote a multitude of fanfictions about them! – so we’d have a lot to talk about! Maybe she’d write a sequel to Carry On for me…


“Baby it’s Cold Outside”

Which book that you didn’t like would you sacrifice to a fire to warm yourself up in the cold?

Image result for november 9 bookSavage! Whilst I’m more likely to use a book I didn’t enjoy for an art project, I must say how satisfying it would be to see November 9 buring on a camp fire. Bye bye, insta-love! Bye bye, bad jokes! Bye bye, unnecessary second half!

“Do you hear what I hear”

Which book do you think everyone should read?

Image result for the book thiefNo matter your age, gender, region, ethnicity, or religion, if you haven’t read The Book Thief, you really really should. Words cannot explain how beautiful, how impactful this novel is, and how uniquely it is told.

Thank you ever so much for reading – I hope you enjoyed!

I’m not going to tag anyone because I wasn’t tagged lol but if you think this looks fun, consider yourself tagged! I’d love to see your answers!

Until next time, and to keep up with my reading as it happens, find me on Goodreads, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.

  1. Awesome post! I am reading ‘The Book Thief’ currently and loving it a lot! I have already started promoting it to my office colleagues, who enthusiastically say, ‘ Oh do share the book with me ‘They say like this everytime I speak excitedly about any book. And when I share a book and ask after a week, ‘Oh How are you liking it?’ And they would say ‘Oh I didnt get time to read’ and they will the same thing the next week and next to the next week and the next to the next to the next week, and I will conclude they are quite useless people! 😉
    I feel so pleased to read your posts about books! Reading books and talking about them is the most awesome thing to do! 🙂
