Bookish Christmas Book Tag

Christmas is almost here! It’s time for all the festive things, so let do the Bookish Christmas Book Tag. I don’t know who created this tag, but I found it last year at

Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.

I can’t think of a specific book. I received so many. I treasure each book that was gifted to me because it made me the reader I am today.

The Ghost of Christmas Past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?

Not really. I don’t read a lot of Christmas themed books. I usually start reading more folklore and winter-based fantasy around this time of year though.

Christmas Tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.

Mistborn Boxed Set I|Brandon Sanderson

The Mistborn series! I just finished The Hero of Ages the other day and I’m amazed. It just keeps getting better. I hope I enjoy era two as much as I enjoyed the first era.

Friends and Family: Name a book with fantastic characters.

The Secret History|Donna Tartt

The Secret History. I’ve just started it, but the characters are so developed. They’re a little sketchy, but still.

Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.

A History of Wild Places|Shea Ernshaw

A History of Wild Places has a gorgeous cover. It’s even more stunning in person.

Christmas Cards: Name a book that carries a great message.

A Christmas Carol|Charles Dickens

A Christmas Carol carries a great message, especially for this time of year. I’m not going to go into detail because I’m sure you know the message.

Ice and Snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.

The Shadow of the Gods|John Gwynne

The Shadow of the Gods was so disappointing! I heard so many people rave about it but halfway in I decided I didn’t care about any of it.

Christmas Lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.

Fall of Giants|Ken Follett

Fall of Giants by Ken Follet is so big. The entire series is, but so far the time invested has been worth it. I love each character and plotline.

Mince Pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.

Tuck Everlasting|Natalie Babbitt

I don’t read a lot of sweet books. The closest thing I can think of is Tuck Everlasting and it’s bittersweet at best.

Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?

The Secret History|Donna Tartt

Right now, The Secret History. I’m enamored by this book. I can’t put it down. I don’t normally like to repeat books in a tag, but I think everyone would love this.

Spreading Festive Cheer: Tag some friends to help spread the bookish love.

If you’re reading this, I tag you!

I hope you enjoyed the Bookish Christmas Book Tag. Are you ready for Christmas? books, toys, tech, & more.
