Belated merry Christmas, guys! 😀 I hope you all had a lovely, wonderful time? Well, I sure did — and I still haven’t been able to get over the festive mood (and the FOOOOD — mmmm!). So obviously, I went searching for some Christmas-y book tags for me to do here, and my — the blogosphere’s been creative coming up with them! This is my favourite out of the bunch: the 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag, which I got from Summer @ Xingsings. Heigh-ho! 😀
On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: a partridge in a pear tree.
…The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favourite stand alone?
Umm… I have a feeling I’ve mentioned this book way too many times on this blog…
…but guess what, I’ll just shamelessly say it again. 😛
Yep, you guessed it right — Just One Wish by Janette Rallison. God, I just LOVE that book. ❤
On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: two turtle doves.
…Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?
I don’t think it’s possible for any of us bookworms to have only one ‘one true pairing’, but somehow, whenever I hear that phrase, I automatically think: Elizabeth and Darcy. Their relationship is just so incredibly CUTE!!! ❤ ❤
On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Three French Hens.
…In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?
Umm… it’s a tie between The Infernal Devices and the Legend trilogy. Both of them are just perfect. *_*
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: four calling birds.
…Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favourite series?
This is the easiest question under the sun. Harry Potter, of course! No other series could ever occupy such a mega-huge part of my childhood, my heart and just my overall life.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: five golden rings.
…One ring to rule them all! Who is your favourite Villain/Antagonist?
Sebastian from The Mortal Instruments. Enough said.
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: six geese a laying.
…Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favourite world/world-building?
Can I just say Harry Potter again? No? Okay then… I’ll have to settle for the next-best one : the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It has everything a world can possibly have! I swear, I just don’t know how these authors manage to create these worlds… (and why they don’t just turn their worlds into reality for us… 😦 )
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: seven swans a swimming.
…Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favourite animal sidekick?
Oh gosh, there are so many! I’m tempted to choose between Hedwig or Crookshanks, but I have another totally awesome animal friend in mind — Blackjack from Percy Jackson! 😀 He’s the coolest creature in the world, and I love him to death. 😀
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: eight maids a milking.
…Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?
Okay, now I definitely can’t resist any longer. When it comes to food and beverages, I MUST use Harry Potter as the answer! Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavoured Beans and Acid Pops and Butterbeer — it’s all so yum! I think I could practically spent the entirety of my life in Honeydukes alone. 😀
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: nine ladies dancing.
…Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favourite kickass female lead?
Okay, this is SO not fair, there are so many kickass heroines to choose from! If I was forced to narrow it down, though, I’d probably go for Celaena from Throne of Glass or June from the Legend trilogy. I LOVE THEM BOTH.
Pretty kickass, eh? 😀
On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: ten lords a leaping.
…How about your favourite leading lad?
Oh, this is easy. Percy Jackson all the way! 😀
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me: eleven pipes piping.
…What is your favourite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)
Umm… off the top of my head, the only book that’s coming to my mind is Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, so I guess that’ll have to do.
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: 12 drummers drumming.
…Drum roll please… what is your favourite read of this year?
Whaaatt??!! 😮 Okay, no way can I answer this question. There are SO MANY awesome books I read this year!!! Books like Bang and Beloved and Throne of Glass and Fangirl and A Court of Thorns and Roses and Living Dead Girl; AND also series’ like The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and the Legend trilogy… HOW AM I TO CHOOSE???
Uh, so that’s it, I guess. This post was supposed to be up on the 25th, but… I don’t know, something went wrong with WP. *shrugs* Anyway, here’s wishing you all a belated Merry Christmas! 😀 Do tell me how your Christmas days went, I’m all tuned in!!! 😉
Love you guys the best,
The Crazy Perfectionist ❤
