The Joy of Christmas Book Tag

I love book tags, especially seasonal book tags. So, it felt appropriate to do The Joy of Christmas Book Tag. This one has been floating around Booktube for several years. I’m not really sure where it started, but I’ve really enjoyed watching everyone’s answers. Let’s get to it.

Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real. What book release are you most anticipating?

I’m super excited for The Only One Left by Riley Sager. I’ve really enjoyed his work in the past, and this one is marketed as a gothic thriller. I think he’ll do a good job at creating that kind of suspense.

Christmas Songs and Carols: What book or author can you not help but sing its praises?

Brandon Sanderson. He hasn’t let me down yet. The more I read his work the more I’m impressed by his writing style. Seriously, if you’ve not read anything by him you need to!

Gingerbread House: What book or series has wonderful worldbuilding?

My default answer is The Stormlight Archives because that’s what I’m reading right now. But The Name of the Wind probably has some of the most impressive worldbuilding that I’ve ever experienced.
