Holiday Hellos and a #Reindeer Roundup

In the spirit of Christmas, I thought I’d create a book tag post. Anyone up for a Reindeer Roundup?

reading reindeer

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who tagged you
  2. List the questions and answer them (I know ob-v)
  3. Tag at least four people

 

You know Dasher?

  • Name a book you couldn’t put down and read in a flash.

And Dancer?

  • A book you think would make a good musical?

And Prancer?

  • A book that made you feel good?

And Vixen?

  • Favorite steamy scene?

Comet?

  • Favorite sci-fi/fantasy book?

And Cupid?

  • Favorite literary love story?

And Donner?

  • Book that you waited for impatiently?

And Blitzen?

  • Book that truly surprised you?

And don’t forget—Rudolph?

  • Overly popular book that you secretly loved despite the hype?

 

My Answers:

Dasher: The first book I read in one sitting was Forever by Judy Blume. I even faked a cold to stay home from school and finish it!

Dancer: For some reason, I would love to see Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman, the Musical–probably scored by Stevie Nicks

Prancer: Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries by Kory Stamper really fed my word nerd soul!

Vixen: <<SPOILER ALERT>> When Jamie and Claire find each other again when she returns to the past in Voyager (Outlander series) by Diana Gabaldon. Something about reconnecting sex: heat + heart= steamy!

Comet: I’m sure I’ve said this before, but The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley has been my favorite fantasy book so far and I read that my freshmen year of college. As for sci-fi, there’s something about the humor in A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams that I keep coming back to.

Cupid: It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is a story that ticks all the boxes: a witty, strong protagonist; an intense man, and elegant language.

Donner: I rarely pre-order books because I know it’ll still exist after it’s publishing date, but the books in The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine I mark in my calendar. Ash and Quill was particularly painful to wait for.

Blitzen: Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder was a present from my godmother and I thought I would skim it just so I could say I read it. It became my favorite book and I’ve reread it more times than I can count. Who knew philosophy was entertaining?

Rudolph: My best friend insisted I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I was reluctant to say the least. A YA novel with a movie tie-in and merchandising by Mattel (I say this knowing full well how ginormous the Potterverse has become)? But he lent it to me and I really loved it. I read all three and even saw the movies! Hurray for my inner teen fangirl.

 

And I tag Rachel Farrimond, Rebecca Howie, Elizabeth Russell and Azaaa Davis

 

Merry Christmas Everyone!! And just one week until #YDSF

 

…Stay tuned!!
