The Bookish Christmas Tag


Been forever since I did one of these, so I decided it was about time. This was started by .

Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.

Erm… none? The only book that’s truly special to me is one that I bought myself.  Well, this is off to a good start… lol

The ghost of Christmas past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?

Not at Christmas-time, persay, but I inevitably return to reading J.D. Robb’s In Death series when it starts getting cold outside.

Christmas tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.

Oh dear. Uhm… *shifty* I… I’m not a huge fan of series, so this is really hard to answer. They all have their ups and downs. I’m going to go with… R.E. Weber’s The Star Agency Chronicles.


Friends and family: Name a book with fantastic characters.


The hunky, off-beat physicist and his spook-believing girlfriend, with the mathematician that believes he’s on a pirate ship, and their one-eyed, snaggle-toothed, ice-slidin’ cat Hambone. (That cover is almost embarrassing, though, and not at all representative of the fun in this book. )

Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.



Christmas cards: Name a book that carries a great message.


Your imagination is a wonderful, powerful thing. Right now this tops my list of “Best kids books ever read.”

Ice and snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.


It had every thing I love in a horror book. I was so hyped to read it! ……and meh. Just meh. It never hooked me. 🙁

Christmas lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.


So, it was an audiobook, but…still. 30+ hours!

Mince pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.


Yes, its a kid’s book. No, I don’t care. It was fun, sweet, and had a satisfying message.

Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?


A fantastically well-written book with a main character heavily afflicted by autism that still manages to be the heroine.

Spreading the festive cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the festive bookish love.

I tag Allie @ Allies Opinions and Clayton @ PageTurner’s Inc and anyone else who wants to do it.

  1. I was scrolling through this very calmly until I hit “Name a book that carries a great message.” It took my brain a minute to compute that I recognized that cover. Then I flailed and lost the ability to speak English. (Although I became immediately fluent in Gobbledygook!) Thanks for including Sarah & Katy in this list — I’m honored!
