The Jingle Bells Book Tag πŸŽ„πŸ’–

Jingle Bell Book Tag

Hello fellow bookworms πŸŽ„ I cannot believe that winter is already flying by, but I’m trying to muster up some Christmas cheer even while juggling with reading and writing for my Bachelor Thesis. So as it’s the festive season now, I couldn’t resist doing a fun seasonally appropriate Tag! There are a lot of great Christmas Book Tags out there, but the Jingle Bell Book Tag captured my interest the most with its questions, so that’s what I ended up doing πŸ₯° The Book Tag was originally created by Richard @ The Humpo Show! Without further ado, let’s go spread the Christmas cheer by answering some festive book-related questions πŸ’—

Me engaging in the Christmas cheer

I’m Tagging πŸŽ„

Let's Talk (2)

β€œAll I Want For Christmas Is You…” πŸŽ„Β 

What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?

The Toll (Neal Shusterman)

➽ I have the Series in Hardcover so that’s the format I want The Toll to be in as well … so it’s expensive and I haven’t gotten my copy yet 😭 I’d love for Santa to bring this book under the Christmas Tree, but I fear it won’t happen as I’ve already made my book wishlist and won’t be getting any more books. I’m still hoping to get to this book next year (hopefully with some of my Christmas money), as it was on my most anticipated releases list for the last half of 2019 and I need to find out how this really thrilling series ends! I’m a bit nervous because I heard several people not being happy with how many new characters were introduced and I really love our original characters, so we’ll see how it goes!

 

β€œSimply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…” πŸŽ„ What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

Bloodwitch (Susan Dennard)

➽ I’ve read a lot of great books this year, but of course, I cannot go without talking about Bloodwitch because after a two-year-long wait it was exactly what I was hoping for! Aeduan is my favorite Witchlands character (and one of my faves in general), so seeing him have his own book made me so happy πŸ₯° I also love how the book even further deepened the worldbuilding and stakes, it perfectly managed to weave together so many different plot threads and finally reveal several answers I had been looking for! I love it when a book completely engages me and makes me want to come up with all the theories, so Bloodwitch totally delivered on that front! I’m very happy about that because I had been hyping up this release so much beforehand πŸ˜„

Elf πŸŽ„ What book unleashes your inner child?

Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling)

➽ I just had to choose Harry Potter for this one, as it does unleash the inner child for a lot of us, me included. I actually put down Harry Potter the first time I started it because it didn’t click with me, but I ended up reading all the books when I was a bit older, so it has always been a big part of my childhood πŸ’• Last year I even started a reread of the books in English as I obviously read them in my native language first. The act of rereading Harry Potter has been a great delight, as it’s so wonderful to return to the wizarding world and dream of magic – that truly makes me feel a bit younger every time 😊

 

β€œIt’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” πŸŽ„

Which book has the most festive look to it?

Holiday Books

Let's Talk (2)

The Grinch πŸŽ„ Your favorite villain

Victor Vale (Vicious)

➽ VICTOR, my love!! Just imagine him as the Grinch πŸ˜‚ Now there are a lot of villainous characters in Vicious (and the following books, the Series is literally called Villains) so he’s a more ambiguous antagonist, but he’s one murderous person 😈 He’s one of my favorite villains (along with the Darkling, but Victor could totally take him on) and characters in general. I love Victor Vale so much, despite all of his screwed up morals and bad decisions. He’s definitely not warm and cuddly, but he has a hidden soft spot for those in his found family, that he tries to pretend doesn’t exist. (But we all know that he’d protect Mitch and Sydney).

 

The Holiday πŸŽ„ Name your favourite TWO couples…

Isobel & Rook (An Enchantment of Ravens)

Baz & Simon (Carry On)

➽ That was seriously so hard, as I don’t have two set favorite couples – I have a long list of them instead – so I choose two that came to mind when I first read the question. Now Isobel and Rook have a special place in my heart, as I loved An Enchantment of Ravens so much and was on board with the romance from the right beginning. Rook is such a disaster sometimes and their banter was glorious + forbidden love is always great πŸ₯° Then, I, of course, had to mention Baz and Simon, who I fell in love with during Fangirl but began to love even more in their own book Carry On. They are one of my favorite enemies to lovers ships with great chemistry and banter πŸ’—Let's Talk (2)

Recommendation πŸŽ„Β What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

Truthwitch (Susan Dennard)

➽ I love this question so much … but is anyone even surprised about my answer? πŸ˜‚ I’ve been gushing about several underrated series, but the Witchlands is still on top of my list, as it’s getting love but not as much as other major fantasy series. I’m a big fan of the world and characters Susan Dennard has created, as you might know from previous gushing on my blog πŸ₯° Therefore, I would totally recommend this book to everyone who reads my blog posts, as the series is amazing and offers so many great things: strong female friendships, angsty relationships, cool and complex magic, an amazing adventure story and the potential to suck you into all the theories about how things are going to play out. Once you get into the story, it’s so much fun and I got so easily attached to the characters, that totally stole my heart πŸ’—

  1. Thank you for tagging me, Caro! I’m not sure I can get to the tag before Christmas, because of the holiday preparations and exams, but I wish I could, ugh. I’ll try!! A Christmas Carol and My True Love Gave to Me are good picks for Christmas, I really love both of those. I’ve been thinking of starting the Witchland series for a while, and your love for it is definitely making that more and more likely. Great post! πŸ™‚

  4. Ah… I absolutely loved reading your answers Caro!! It was a wonderful tag!!
    I’m with you, if I’ve started a series in hardback books I need them all to be hardback which does mean the price adds up πŸ˜‚ I would love to start the series Scythe as I’ve heard a lot of good things!!
    I really need to read the Witchlands series! I will one day!! Hopefully soon!! I feel like I will love it and adore your enthusiasm for it!!
    I also love that cover for A Christmas Carol– I don’t think I’ve seen it before but it looks amazing!!
    Thank you so much for tagging me!! ❀

  5. Best of luck for writing your thesis, Caro, YOU CAN DO THIS! ❀
    I loved your answers for this tag, so many books I'm unfamiliar with or haven't read just yet. I heard incredible things about the Scythe series, I really need to get to it someday! πŸ˜€ and I've heard you talking about Truthwitch a lot, I have to admit you make me so, so curious about this book! πŸ˜€
