12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS BOOK TAG

Merry Christmas! I hope that you have a magical time with your loved ones but even if you are not in the mood to celebrate this year, know that you are not alone and that you are thought of.

As today will be a busy day, I decided to keep this book tag short and sweet. I was inspired to do this book tag by Ruby from Ruby Rae Reads. I loved her blog post last year and have been wanting to do it ever since, so a big thank you to her!

Now, let’s get started!


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?

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

G O O D R E A D S  |  S Y N O P S I S

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name. 


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?

Feyre and Rhysand from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. They are the first book couple I truly fell in love with.


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?

The Folk of the Air books by Holly Black

G O O D R E A D S  |  S Y N O P S I S

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.


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?

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

G O O D R E A D S  |  S Y N O P S I S

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. 

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass—and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world. 


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?

Oh, I do not really know. I think I am going with Luc from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.


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?

The Wizarding World of HP. I just love the magical feeling it gave me when I first read the books last year.


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?

Syrinx from House of Earth and Blood. I do not think Syrinx is an official sidekick, though but I loved Bryce’s little pet so much.


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?

I honestly am not good at remembering things like this in books but I do remember The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue having quite a few food descriptions.


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?

Coraline from Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I just love her strength and how brave she is.


ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING

How about your favourite leading lad?

Henry from The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. I just love his love for books, writing and photography, and how much I can relate to him.


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.)

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

G O O D R E A D S  |  S Y N O P S I S

A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.

Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity…until now.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go-Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Another band getting noticed is The Six, led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.


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?

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

G O O D R E A D S  |  S Y N O P S I S

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name. 



Keep reading and never stop telling stories.
