Bookending Winter #2: Joy of Christmas Tag


Hi guys! For my second post of Bookending Winter, I am going to do the Joy of Christmas Book Tag, created by Sam @ Sam's Nonsense. 😄

Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real; what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

I am not sure there are many 2019 releases I'm anticipating since I mostly focus on backlist, but one I'm definitely excited for is Cait's new book! 😃

The Boy Who Steals Houses


Christmas Songs & Carols: What book or author can you not help but sing it's praises?

Oh, so many. 😂

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

UprisingThe Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)Steelheart (Reckoners, #1)

The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)All the Light We Cannot See


Gingerbread Houses: What book or series has wonderful world building?

I LOVED the world building in these!

To Kill a KingdomSteelheart (Reckoners, #1)The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Splintered (Splintered, #1)A Whole New World (A Twisted Tale #1)

A Christmas Carol: Favorite classic or one that you want to read:

I almost said I didn't have a favorite classic, but I remembered Peter Pan, duh! 

That was a huge part of my childhood.

Peter Pan: The Original Story

And a classic I might like to try reading next year is Emma by Jane Austen. 



Christmas Sweets: What book would you love to receive for Christmas?

A lot. 😂 But I think these are the ones I would want the most:

Heart of Iron (Heart of Iron, #1)Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1)Sky in the Deep

(Wow, the aesthetic of these top three books together is gorgeous! 😯)

The Last of August (Charlotte Holmes #2)HeartlessDark Tide (Waterfire Saga, #3)The End of Oz (Dorothy Must Die, #4)

Candles in the Window: What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling?

I COULD go with The Mother-Daughter Book Club again, but I won't. 😂

The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)

I'll go with The Shadow Queen because even though it's an awesome fantasy, it gave my little fangirl heart the warm fuzzies because it reminded me of OUAT and I actually really liked the romance. 😊


Christmas Trees & Decorations: What are some of your favorite book covers?

There's WAY too many gorgeous covers, but here are just a few I like. 😊

Teardrop (Teardrop, #1)Once Upon a Dream (Twisted Tales #2)The Neverland Wars (The Neverland Wars, #1)A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1) 
Reign of Shadows (Reign of Shadows, #1)The Snow Queen and Other Winter TalesThe Falconer (The Falconer, #1)Submerged (Alaskan Courage, #1)

Christmas Joy: What are some of your favorite things about Christmas And/Or some of your favorite Christmas memories?

I love just seeing pretty lights and decorations everywhere, and when I was growing up we would always put up our tree on Thanksgiving while watching the Macy's parade on TV and eating something yummy and sugary for breakfast. 😋 Also listening to lots of Christmas music and watching Christmas movies. These are my favorites that I grew up watching:

I hope you liked this tag! As you can see, I did a bad job at just picking one book for the questions. 😂 If you want to do this tag too, then go for it! Spread the Bookish Christmas cheer!

I'll see you back here on Thursday for my wrapping gifts for my Bookish Secret Santa box! 

Bye! ❤️🎄
