Merry Christmas Everyone! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and hope that your New Year is just as good. We wanted to keep up the Christmas spirit so we thought a perfect way to do this is through a Christmas Tag.
“All I Want For Christmas Is You…” – What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?
Amy: I’ve put ‘Crooked Kingdom’ and ‘The Fantastic Beasts Screenplay’ on my Christmas list so fingers crossed Father Christmas brings them on the 24th!
Eleanor: I have also asked for ‘Crooked Kingdom’ and I have also asked for ‘Outlander’ because I love the series so I know I will love the books as well!
“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…” – What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?
Amy: I can’t pick just one book and I don’t want to give away all my favourites just yet as once again we’ll be doing our 2016 favourites post (so keep your eyes peeled for that) but I just finished reading ‘The Sun is Also A Star’ which was just incredible and if you’re looking for a book to put on your Christmas list then I recommend that you put that one!
Eleanor: I loved all the classics, ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’ and also ‘Lady Midnight’! (They were this year right?)
Elf – What book unleashes your inner child?
Amy: I’m currently studying ‘Harry Potter’ so in every lecture and seminar it brings back memories of the magic and enjoyment I had when I first read it.
Eleanor: Oh goodness, I’ll have to say any Enid Blighton books, especially ‘The Famous Five’, absolute classics, they just remind me of the long trips to Norwich we used to make to see family.
“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” – Which book has the most festive look to it?
Amy: I wanted a Christmas book to read and I picked up ‘Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares’ and ’12 Days of Dash and Lily’ by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan and I’m in love with their Christmassy covers (and storyline!).
Eleanor: I have no idea why but ‘Paper Towns’ looks really christmassy? the story isn’t particularly festive though…
The Grinch – Your favourite villain…
Amy: I always choose The Darkling for these questions just because I love to hate him!
Eleanor: I’m going to have to say Black Jack Randall from Outlander, he is just awful but I do love to hate him!
The Holiday – Name your favourite TWO couples…
Amy: Apart from myself and all my fictional crushes (Chaol, Damon and Killian), I do love Cress and Thorne from the Luna Chronicles and Andi and Clark from The Unexpected Everything. Both of these couples are completely different but you know what they say, opposites attract.
Eleanor: I’m going to say Feyre and Rhysand from ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’ and also Emma and Joules from ‘Lady Midnight’.
What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?
Amy: I’d love to give them ‘Six of Crows’ by Leigh Bardugo because it’s one of my favourites of this year and I am in love with her characters and writing style! If you’re looking for a badass and action packed read then I highly recommend that you pick ‘Six of Crows’ up!
Eleanor: I’m going to gift you all the ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’, and also the second book ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’, they’re brilliant books!
