The ‘Dashing Through The Snow Book Tag’ was created by A Stranger’s Guide to Novels back in December 2015. Seven years later, it’s still a new-to-me book tag, and sounded like the perfect tag to do this Blogmas.
- Thank the curator
- Tag 5 people to spread the Christmas joy
- Have fun!
As I think almost everyone has done this book tag already, I’m going to tag tag the following people to do it Amy from Lost In A Good Book; Ally at Ally’s Appraisals; Shelleyrae at Book’d Out; Rachel at The Rest Is Still Unwritten (he blog is on hiatus, but she is still active on social media), and anyone else who would like to take part!
To make this tag even more fun and a little bit challenging, I’m only going to answer with books I’ve read this year!
1. Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree?
Like most readers, there a lot of books I could answer this question with, But I’m going to limit myself to only three books.
2. A book you’ll be reading during the Christmas Season
Despite having FINISHED 16 Christmas/festive books already this festive season, I still have an overwhelming list of books that I really want to get to before the big day in just over a week! Some of my priority reads are pictured below.
3. Favourite Christmas Movie
Let me document all the reasons why it is a Christmas movie:
- Set at Christmas (Christmas Eve to be precise),
- Takes place during a Christmas party,
- There are presents involved and a Santa,
- Christmas carols can be heard throughout the film,
- It features a second change love story AND a family reunion (which is kind of the hallmark of every Christmas movie);
- Some characters act Grinch like,
- Christmas spirit is lost and must be found,
- and the true meaning of Christmas, and being therefore for one another is learnt and understood.
There go, it’s a Christmas move.
4. Do you like snow?
We don’t really get much snow in Australia, and while I’ve seen it, and been to the snow once, I can’t say for sure if I’ve had the TRUE snow experience. I like hot chocolates in the snow though; does that count?
5. Name a character you you would like to spend your Christmas day with.
Stella and Luka from Lovelight Farm by B. K. Borison are high contenders. I love their friendship and relationship, and just think it would be a hoot to spend Christmas at their Christmas Tree farm with the entire gang.
Rex and Abigail from Homecoming King by Penny Reid. Because these two are up there as my faourite characters of the year.
For something very different, Auren and Slade from The Plated Prisoner series by Raven Kennedy. A little bit wicked, a little bit right, and with a heart of gold behind hard battle-won exteriors, these two have my whole heart and soul. I devoured all four books this year, and I think these two would have some stories to tell.
6. To give or to receive?
To give. Pretty sure it’s my love language.
7. What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
Lovelight Farm? Or Slade’s castle in Fourth Kingdom.
8. Fondest Christmas memory?
Christmas Eve’s spent at the park; Christmas with my Grandparents and my-then-baby-sister falling asleep under the tree one year.
9. Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly!)
Yep. I did it twice to double-check, because why not?
