12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag : Blogging with Dragons

Can you believe it’s only one week until Christmas? I always wished Christmas was celebrated over 12 days, like the song, because it seems like so much work for only a single day. I’m talking about the shopping, the gift wrapping, the baking, the cooking, the decorating, and the traveling. How fun would it be to open a little something each or to have a different tradition for each of the 12 days instead of having to sprint to the finish line of a single day? So in the spirit of that sentiment, I decided to participate in The 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag.

 

This tag was originally created by Lizzie Loves Books. I’ve seen a couple variations of the tag on different blogs, so I definitely picked the questions I felt like answering the most. 

 

1. A Partridge in a pear tree: Favorite Stand-Alone Book?

The Priory in the Orange Tree

 

2. Two Turtle Doves: Fictional OTP/Favorite Ship?

 

 

Geralt and Yennefer from The Witcher series. (Okay, so I’ve only read The Last Wish, but I’ve played The Witcher 3 and watched the Netflix show. And I will finish reading the series one of these days, I swear.)

 

3.Three French Hens: Favorite Trilogy?

The Winternight Trilogy is the first one that comes to mind. It’s such a magical trilogy.

 

4. Four Calling Birds: Favorite Fictional Beast/Creature?

Right now, all I can think of is Shalkan, the sassy unicorn from The Outstretched Shadow. I think most of the unicorns I’ve ever read about are majestic and wise, so it was an enjoyable departure to read about a sarcastic one. Also I adored Solovey in The Winternight Trilogy.

 

5. Five Golden Rings: One ring to rule them all! Who is your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?

Book Review : The Guinevere Deception - Blogging with Dragons

Luc from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue was a standout antagonist of the year for me and was definitely my favorite part of the novel. But my heart definitely belongs to Mordred from The Camelot Uprising series.

 

6. Six Geese a Laying: Rotten egg- What’s your least favorite book?

 

Book Review : To Sleep in a Sea of Stars - Blogging with Dragons

 

Of this year, it was To Sleep in a Sea of Stars. Completely gobsmacked that this one Science Fiction book of the year at the Goodreads Choice Award.

 

7. Seven Swans a Swimming: Show a Book with Water on the Cover

 

Book Review : Daughter of the Forest - Blogging with Dragons

 

Daughter of the Forest was too perfect!

 

8. Eight Maids a Milking: What fictional food do you wish you could taste?

 

I have to go with Turkish Delight from The Chronicles of Narnia. I mean Edmund betrayed his entire family for it, so it must be pretty good.

 

9. Nine Ladies Dancing: Favorite dance between two characters?

 

Obviously have to go with Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, hands down.

 

10. Ten Lords a Leaping: How about your favorite leading lad?
Rhysand
Rhysand by Charlie Bowater

Even after all these years, it’s still Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses. He’s ruined me for other male characters.

 

11. Eleven Pipers Piping: What is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)

Kvothe from The Kingkiller Chronicles. He plays the lute magnificently and it’s a huge part of him as a character.

12. Twelve Drummers Drumming: It’s the end of the song; what’s your favorite book ending?

The Burning God

Right now, I’d have to say The Burning God. The ending was so fitting that it practically blew my mind.
