On the eleventh day of Blogmas, a book reviewer gave to me… the ’tis the season book tag!
- Do you have a favorite winter read?
One of my favorite winter reads is Secret Santa by Sabrina James. While a little cliche, I have read it numerous times since high school and still find it as enjoyable as the first time that I read it. Secret Santa follows several student at a high school as they participate in their school’s Secret Santa gift exchange.
- Find a book with blue on the cover.
A book that I read this year with blue on the cover was Real Friends. Real Friends is a graphic novel that details Shannon Hale’s real life changing friendships during middle school. This book is a great read for anyone, but it would be particularly powerful for current middle schools student who are going through changing friendships.
- Find a book that you’d use as a star on a Christmas tree
I would put Maybe This Time by Kasie West on top of a Christmas tree. I gave this book five stars and it was one of my favorite contemporary reads of the year, so it would shine brightly on top of a tree.
- Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a winter holiday
I would love to visit Whoville during Christmas since they are known for their Christmas celebrations. Plus, it would fun to meet the Grinch!
- Pick one fictional character you’d take with you on your holiday
A character that I would take with me to Whoville is Sophie from Maybe This Time. She loves to design clothes, so I think she would be very inspired by the setting and people who reside in Whoville during Christmas.
- Name one book on your wish list this year
This year, I would prefer an Amazon gift card as opposed to a physical book. I don’t have much space left on my shelves, and I read more on my Kindle anyway, so it would make more sense for me to ask for an Amazon gift card so I can purchase more e-books for my Kindle.
- Favorite holiday drink, treat, and movie
I’m not usually a fan of warm drinks, however, I’m a huge fan of limited time drinks at Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. I also do enjoy hot chocolate with whip cream and extra toppings. As for treats, I always enjoy baking cookies with my grandma and sister every year on Christmas Eve. For movies, there are so many that I love to watch year after year. Home Alone 2 and Elf could be considered two of my favorites.
