Awards/Tags are just pointlessly fun blog posts that eat up your time.
‘Tis the Season Book Tag
…I was tagged a year ago by Summer @ Xingsings to complete this tag. You bet I had this drafted long ago but had to amend these answers for this current/upcoming year reads.
Do you have a favourite winter read?
Who has winter favourite reads? Not I, that’s for sure. I’d be more than happy to have time to read during the kerfuffle of events and the like.
Find a book with blue on the cover!
I recently was able to get a hold of three blue books that might be of consideration to you:
Find a book you’d use as the star on a Christmas tree!
Even though it was a terrible finale of a trilogy, The Last Star by Rick Yancey comes to mind first. Because I am feeling very on the nose today.
Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a winter vacation!
In the vein of new book debuts and this Winter-y themed tag, I’ll throw Elly Blake’s Frostblood into the mix of being a perfect white Christmas with all the snowfall!
Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a fireblood who must hide her powers of heat and flame from the cruel frostblood ruling class that wants to destroy all that are left of her kind. So when her mother is killed for protecting her and rebel frostbloods demand her help to kill their rampaging king, she agrees. But Ruby’s powers are unpredictable, and she’s not sure she’s willing to let the rebels and an infuriating (yet irresistible) young man called Arcus use her as their weapon.
All she wants is revenge, but before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to take part in the king’s tournaments that pit fireblood prisoners against frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her and from the icy young man she has come to love.
Which fictional character would you take with you on your winter vacation?
Living in Canada…I don’t understand the concept of this “Winter vacation” as it would mean traveling elsewhere warmer. Perhaps I would on vacay with Kell from A Darker Shade of Magic, murder him, then finally claim the almighty coat.
Name one book on your wishlist this year!
Easily Patrick Ness’ new book…I mean, of course it is.
Favourite holiday drink, treat, and movie?
Drink: I don’t think hot chocolate can be considered a holiday drink if I drink it regularly enough.
Treat: I will eat anything although recently I’ve been eating pounds and pounds of butter cookies.
Movie: I’m not a big holiday movie traditions now. If you asked me when I was a tween, maybe I would have said Home Alone or The Christmas Elves.
