Tag: The Happy Holidays Book Tag

I’m a little late on this one, but huge thanks to Tova for tagging me in her original Happy Holidays Book Tag! ❤ I love the idea of this one and I love how it includes so many different holidays.

Christmas –  The Birth of Christ

Name a book that makes you want to sing praise with the angels on high.

I thought I’d go with a different book than usual and hype up Alex, Approximately a little bit. Jenn Bennett’s books are always really great and this one is about a girl who meets her online friend in real life. As usual for a Jenn Bennett book, it’s adorable, it’s swoony, it’s sex-positive, and it’s amazing.

Thanksgiving – Blessing of the Harvest

Name an author you are thankful for (this could be them personally, or their work).

I’m thankful for R.S. Grey and all of the laughs her romantic comedies have given me this year!

Diwali – The Festival of Lights

Name a book that lit up your heart like it was Diwali and warmed your soul.

The Kiss Quotient warmed my soul so, so much. ❤

Kwanzaa – The first fruits of the harvest

Name a favourite book about familyT

I’m trying to mix things up today with books other than the same few that I usually use. I’m going to go with Save the Date for this question. I loved the relationship between Charlie and her siblings. 🙂

Hannukah –  commemoration Maccabean Revolt

Name a book that inspired some kind of a “revolution” (some kind of important change) in your life

It’s not necessarily the book that changed my life, but Emergency Contact was the book that I was reading when I made a big decision earlier this year.

Winter Solstice – The Longest Night of the Year

Name a book that helped you through a hard time in your life.

Saga was one of the only things that could completely distract me while my life was a little bit out of control earlier this year.

Yalda – the longest and darkest night of the year

Name a book with a wintry setting.

Let It Snow features three interconnected stories set during one blizzard.

Chinese New Year – The Spring Festival – 中国农历新年快乐

Name a book that you can’t wait to read in the new year.

I have approximately 500 books I can’t wait to read in the new year. At the top of my list is probably Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett.

New Years – Happy 2019!

Name some bookish resolution for the New Year (this could be for reading, blogging, BookTube etc)

I’m planning to do a whole post about my plans for the new year, but in short:

  • I’d like to read 100 books.
  • I’d like to do at least 3 reading challenges.
  • I’d like to do some collaborations, guest posts, buddy reads… pretty much, I want to have some more interaction.

TAG SOME PEOPLE 

I’ve been kind of absent from WordPress for the last couple weeks, so I’m not sure who has or hasn’t done this tag. I’ll leave it open to anybody who wants to do it. Please link back to me so that I can see your answers!

Monthly Motif: December Update

It’s time for another Monthly Motif reading challenge update! December was pretty much a freebie month and I decided to redo October’s theme and go with new or old. The goal was to read as many books as I could that had been published in 2018 and that I’d previously bought for myself… but I didn’t really take into consideration travel plans, and I didn’t do as well as I might have hoped.

Books read:

Books not read:

  • Anything else!! I had hoped to read more books than this, but there’s always next year!
