12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

Christmas Day might be over but we’re now in the Twelve Days of Christmas so what better way to celebrate than with this tag I found on Kristin Kraves Books?

Original creator: Falling Down The Book Hole.

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?

Got to be The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Bisexual and gay representation, a wonderfully flawed and fabulous main character and an ending that almost made me cry in public. This had it all!

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?

Jamie and Taylor will always be my OTP. Jamie is just the most perfect love interest, full stop.

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?

At the moment. I would have to say the Shadow and Bone trilogy. It was a fantastic trilogy full of fantastic characters and gorgeous world building.

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?

Got to be the old childhood favourite (despite the author).

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?

At the moment, I’d say Winzik from Starsight. I can’t think of any other character I’ve instinctively loathed at first sight so much.

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?

How about multiple worlds like the many, many worlds in the Wayward Children series? Hard to pick which one would be my favourite but I think I’ll have to go with the Goblin Market. Can’t wait for Across The Green Grass Fields!

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?

Does an external manifestation of my soul count? Because I really want a daemon!

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?

38739562

Got to copy Kristin on this one. This book takes food up about five levels!

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?

She’s got some tough competition but I’ll go with Ead from The Priory of the Orange Tree. I won’t spoil just what makes her badass but it’s worth reading this mighty tome to get to!

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

How about your favourite leading lad?

red seas
I had a tough time picking a leading lad but I’m going to go with Locke Lamora. How can you not love such a fantastic bastard?

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.)

Got to be Soul Music. There are more rock music references than you can shake a guitar pick at in this one!

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?

A very tough call but, since it really helped me with Nanowrimo this year, I’ll go with Save The Cat! and say it’s an essential book for any writer.

I tag anyone who wants to keep Christmas going!

I hope to see you again very soon.
