Tag: The Nightmare Before Christmas Book Tag

When I was in high school, my best friend and I used to do movie nights all the time. I think I’ve already talked about our obsession with Monty Python. Now I’m going to talk about our obsession with The Nightmare Before Christmas. We loved that movie. We still love that movie. She was just talking about dressing up as Sally for Halloween. I just texted her about some Nightmare Before Christmas sweaters that I saw at Hot Topic. I bought her Jack and Sally ornaments for Christmas.

Anyway. When I saw this Nightmare Before Christmas tag on Elaine‘s blog, I had to do it. There was no way I couldn’t. This movie has been part of my life for like fourteen years.

Sally: A book with a character who loves someone so much and actually gets them in the end

Pining from afar forever is one of my favorite tropes in a romance novel, so I could have chosen approximately 100 books for this prompt. Today I’m going to go with Bro Code by Kendall Ryan.

Jack: A book with a character who longs for more

Felicity in The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy wants more for her life than just marrying a gentleman and staying at home.

Zero: A book with a loyal sidekick

Does Mister Kindly count? He’s the best sidekick I can think of. I wish I had my own not-cat to follow me around and make snarky comments.

Oogie Boogie: A book with a wicked villain

You probably thought I was going to go with Victor Vale from Vicious, but nope, today I’m mixing things up with a different Schwab villain, Callum Harker from This Savage Song. This book is about monsters, but Callum is just a regular guy who is the actual worst.

Halloween Town: A book with a weird or creepy theme

I use this answer for every kind of spooky prompt, but 172 Hours on the Moon is legitimately the creepiest book I’ve read.

Christmas Town: A book that left you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside

I would normally go with The Hating Game, but since that was Elaine’s answer, I’ll go with something else… Emergency Contact. I loved Sam and Penny and how their relationship developed through texts. 

Since I wasn’t tagged, I’m not going to tag anyone either, but if you want to do this, please feel free and link back to me so I can see your answers!

Bookworms rejoice! These charming comics capture exactly what it feels like to be head-over-heels for hardcovers.

Book Love is a gift book of comics tailor-made for tea-sipping, spine-sniffing, book-hoarding bibliophiles. Debbie Tung’s comics are humorous and instantly recognizable—making readers laugh while precisely conveying the thoughts and habits of book nerds. Book Love is the ideal gift to let a book lover know they’re understood and appreciated.

I had seen about a million glowing reviews of Book Love when I finally decided to check my library to see if it was available. Much to my surprise, it wasn’t even out yet! But it was available to read now on Netgalley, so I figured I might as well go for it. I read it, in its entirety, about fifteen minutes after downloading it.

This little collection of book-related comics was adorable.

And so me.

For example, me whenever I see a negative review of Emergency Contact:

And just… me in four panels:

This book was so cute and it would make a great gift for any book lover. Huge thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel for the ARC!
