Hey! I was tagged by Loreva from La Book Dreamer to do the Dashing Through the Snow tag. Thank you for tagging me! This tag was originally created by Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels.
The rules are simple:
- Thank the curator.
- Tag 5 people to spread the Christmas joy.
- Have fun!
Now onto the questions!
Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree…
I went so book buying crazy this year and this is actually kind of a tough question, lol! I was such a huge Clarissa Explains It All fan as a kid (I swear I loved that show so much), so I was excited when I heard there was going to be a book out about her! The only reason why I haven’t actually bought it myself is because the hardcover is kind of pricey; it jumps from $17-20 (e-book is $13) and I just can’t do it. So I will definitely be okay with someone else buying it for me, haha. 😛 Here’s the first sentence taken off Goodreads:
Things I Can’t Explain by Mitchel Kriegman
“A complete re-imagining of Clarissa Explains it All as 20-something Clarissa tries to navigate the unemployment line, mompreneurs and the collision of two people in love. “
A book you will be reading during the Christmas season!
I don’t have any Christmasy themed books to read this month, but I did make a December TBR and one of the books that I will be hopefully reading this month is Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. I’m excited that I won an ARC of it. 🙂
Favorite Christmas movie!
I think I will instead list you the Christmas movies I watch every single December. These are all my favorites and I make it a point to watch them every year. Ask the boyfriend, I’m sure he’ll tell you how annoying it is for him. 😛
- Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
- Jingle All the Way
- The Santa Clause
- A Christmas Story
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon one)
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
Do you like snow?
I was actually born in Illinois, so I was able to experience snow as a kid and it was fun! I loved it! Then I moved to Florida and snow is non-existent here. HELLO SANDY WINTER! Then when I was going to start 9th grade, we moved back to Illinois for a year and the snow was no longer any fun. It was more annoying than anything! So I guess I have a love/hate for snow. I want it because I don’t have it, but I know if I have it then I won’t want it anymore.
Name a character that you would like to spend your Christmas with!
Just one? This is going to be a tough one, because I just want one huge Christmas party with all of my favorite characters. I think I’ll choose Jasper Dent from I Hunt Killers. I think that will make for one pretty crazy Christmas.
To give or to receive?
I am all about giving gifts! I take pride in finding the perfect gifts for everyone. I love seeing their faces when they open their gifts. This year though, I have no idea what to buy anyone! Like NO IDEA! I actually haven’t gotten anyone anything, besides Shelbie LOL! She’s easy and fun to buy for though, because I just buy all the things I want since we pretty much like almost all of the same things. 😛 So this year, it’s going to be one of those “it’s the thought that counts” type of things, because I haven’t done any Christmas shopping and I really am at a loss at what to get anyone!
What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
Hogwarts. End of story. It sounds like it’ll be so fun and I really just need to hop on the Hogwarts Express like NOW, because before you know it Christmas will be here and I will be sad if I miss the train!
Fondest Christmas memory!
My memory is horrible and I don’t really remember too many Christmas’. I do love spending time with my family on Christmas. My cousin Michelle has a Christmas party every year, so it’s always fun going to that. This year I am going to be leaving a day earlier, so I can help her with all the decorating and cooking and Christmas crafts! haha. 😀
Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly)!
Hmmm, so I tried this and it kind of sounds like I can pronounce it correctly. GO ME! CHRISTMAS TREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

And anyone else that wants to do this tag! It’s a lot of fun! Please feel free to ignore if you have already done the tag, don’t want to do it or you don’t celebrate Christmas.
I have a couple book reviews coming up soon! 😀 I’m glad I am getting back into the swing of things as far as reading goes this month! Feel free to check out some of my recent posts linked below.
Random||Thanksgiving, Christmas, Pictures & More. – a kind of non-bookish post talking about my Thanksgiving trip and pictures I’ve taken to go along with it.
Friday Finds #39. – the books that I added to my Goodreads TBR last week! I actually been adding lots the last couple weeks. The last couple months I haven’t really been finding many new books, so I am excited!
I hope you have a great day! 🙂
