Twelve Days of Christmas Book Tag

Hello, bookish friends! We are now officially less than 12 days away from Christmas Day, and I can’t even begin to express how much I love the holiday season. It truly is the most magical time of the year. Around here, we typically eat delicious food (and have leftovers for days!), engage in family traditions, and spend much needed time with the ones we love creating memories we will remember forever! I love this time of year so much that I couldn’t imagine not doing a fun bookish tag as we count down to Christmas day. I originally saw this tag over on Confessions of a Serial Reader, so definitely head over and check out Elnade’s version once you are done here. Let’s jump right into all this Christmas fun, shall we?

The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favorite standalone?

Not only is Lovely War my favorite standalone, but it is also one of my favorite books of all time! If you love World War I/II retellings, Greek mythology, and are a helpless romantic at heart, Lovely War is totally the book for you!

.

Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?

Amazon.com: The Red Scrolls of Magic (1) (The Eldest Curses):  9781481495080: Clare, Cassandra, Chu, Wesley: Books
This question is so hard because I have so many favorites, but Alec and Magnus are definitely one of my favorite fictional couples! ❤

.

In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?

I finally read the Caraval series this year, and I am still kicking myself for sleeping on this trilogy for so long. It truly was like no other, and I highly recommend the Caraval series to ALL readers, especially those looking to dip their toes into the fantasy genre.

.

Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favorite series?

The truth is that both ACOTAR and TOG are my favorite series, but I went with TOG just because Kingdom of Ash was simply magnificent and a magical (while also being heartbreaking) ending to the series!

.

One ring to rule them all! Who is your favorite villian/antagonist?

No spoilers but if you know, you know!!!

.

Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favorite world/world-building?

I am completely in love with Adrienne Young’s vision of the Narrows and Bastian. As cutthroat as it is, I would LOVE to be able to spend the day in one (or both!) of these locations!

.

Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favorite animal sidekick?

Roane’s dog, Shadow, was literally the most loyal companion ever and the goodest boy!

Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?

Reading about all the amazing food coming out of Sea & Vine made my mouth water. And the chapter with the cannoli has got to be one of my favorite scenes ever!

.

Dancing is just one skill of a lady! Who is your favorite kickass female lead?

Even though the Blood and Ash series by JLA isn’t my favorite of hers, I thought Poppy was an amazingly written characters. I’ve never seen a female lead as stabby as hers, that is for sure, and her development from the first book to the third is astounding!

How about your favorite leading lad?

The Six of Crows Duology Boxed Set by Leigh Bardugo
Kaz Brekker has been my favorite male lead since I read the SoC duology YEARS ago! So mysterious…. so morally grey…. swoon!


WWhat is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? It can be about music, reference music a lot, etc.

I don’t want to spoil anyone, so I am just going to say that there’s a moment when one of the characters is so moved by music that it gets me all teary eyed in ACOSF!

Drum roll please… What is your favorite read of this year?

This question is such a hard one because it has been a year of amazing reads, but KOTC kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! I can’t wati for Kingdom of the Feared to released in Fall 2022 🙂

Thank you guys so much for tuning into this super cute Christmas book tag! Wishing all of you the merriest of Christmases, and I’ll see you back here next time!

<3,

Sarah
