Festive Christmas Book Tag

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And it's been so long since I've done a tag, so I thought it would be fun to do one!
And since Christmas is just round the corner (it almost doesn't feel like Christmas is a week on Sunday :) ) it felt fitting to do the Festive Christmas Book Tag!
I did not get tagged for this tag, but when have I let that reason stop me from doing a tag?
So here's the book tag!

Festive Christmas Book Tag
1. A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with.
Of course the Weasley family went through my mind first. But that's not the family I'm choosing. The family I am choosing is (drumroll please) *drumroll* the Baudelaire family! (The whole family, you know, before the parents kicked the bucket). But it would just be so cool to spend Christmas day with this family because they are all caring and intelligent and quirky, and I just feel like I would be welcomed as part of this incredible family.
And let's be honest, they would be interesting as heck to talk to.

2. A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift.
A bookish mug, with a quote, or an inspirational sentence, anything! I just want a mug that marks me as a reader (and I'm proud!)

3. A fictional character you think would make the perfect Christmas elf?
Okay, I haven't mentioned this character in a while, but I just think this character would make the perfect house elf!
Fletcher Renn! He would just be the perfect Christmas elf, because he'd be just so excited and giddy and... cute, because he is the cutest and most innocent character in existent.
He'd just be so excited to be experiencing being a Christmas elf (though he'd play it off- this is just one of the reasons that I love this character...)
READ SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT.
:D

4. Match a book to it's perfect Christmas song.
I feel like this song has been done so much, but I cannot think of another song, so I am going with... All I Want For Christmas Is You, and...
Songs About A Girl, because even though it does have more than just romance in this book, a large part of the plot is centred around the romance.

5. Bah Humbag- a book or fictional character you've been disappointed in and should be put on the Naughty list.
Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch.
I don't know what it was about this book (might have been the cover), but it took me 10 days to finish this. To be honest, I know I should have loved it, because of the world building, and the action, but it just didn't seem to click with me. Was kind of disappointed by this one.

6. A book or fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserves to be put on the Nice list.
MIND GAMES, BY TERI TERRY
This sci-fi book is one of my favourites (possibly my very favourite as Teri Terry is my favourite author and this is my favourite book by her), and it is just perfect! The world building, the pacing, the characters, the writing. I just love this book so much!

7. Red, green and gold: a book cover that has a wonderfully Christmas feel to it.
Even though this book is set during Christmas, it does have an awesome Christmas feel to it. Might be either the snowflake, or the silver, both things that I associate with Christmas. This cover is just so adorable.

8. A book or series you love so much that you want everyone to find it under their Christmas  tree this year so they can read and love it too.
The Skulduggery Pleasant series! One of my favourite series'! It may be middle-grade, but it is packed to the teeth with kick-ass characters, explosive plotlines, and dynamic writing! Here are some of the covers that I love (because the covers are magnificent)

And these are just a couple of the books in this series! (There are 9 books in the series, and two spin-offs).

So that was the Festive Christmas Book Tag! I tag:
  • Savannah at The Book Prophet
  • Lisa at Read. Breathe. Relax
  • The YA Bookworm Blogger

So that was the Festive Christmas Book Tag! I hope you enjoyed it, and I will see you all soon!
Goodbye!
