Winter Book Tag

Hello, wonderlandians! Today I will be answer some question for a tag because I have not done one in a while. I found this tag over at Chelle’s Book Ramblings.

Questions

1. Snow: Name a book that gave you the chills

Maybe Now audiobook cover art

Maybe Now by Colleen Hoover. This book was everything this year. I didn’t even know that this book existed until a few months ago. Yes,you read that right. I was so happy to found the book. It was just what I needed. When I read the first book I always like the way that it ended but this book added such a new outlook on to whole story. If you want to read my thought that click the blue link and you can read all of the thoughts on this book.

It is one the I would recommend but only if you have read maybe someday and maybe not. Seriously, these are three books that you have to check and if you have never read a Colleen Hoover book before this is a great series to start off with.

2. Happy Holidays: Name your favorite Holiday book

There is book that I loved It was called the Last Boyfriend by J.S Cooper.

The Last Boyfriend (Forever Love Book 1) by [Cooper, J. S.]

This is not a Christmas book. I just remember reading this book one during Christmas. This is when I was broke and had no job becasue I was in college. When I was getting my associates degree I was not in a place to both work and go to school. I was able to get a lot reading done becasue all I was really able to do what school work and reading. I remember reading and loving this book.

It gave me all the feels. Now thinking about it this is one book I should add to my TBR for next year. I want to do a reread challenge. There are so many book that I was to reread and I will actually have the time since I will be graduation with my bachelors degree. So I will have lots of time that will be freed up and I. I am very excited about this.

3. Crackling Fire: Name a Book you want to throw in a fire.

There are two books that I would throw in to fire to keep my self warm.

Enough said.

4. Treat yo self: Name a fake book that if made, you would pay any amount of money for. (ie. another harry potter book, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory that came with Chocolate)

I’m not sure but it would have vampires and magic. If it was like Vampire Academy or The Lux Series. I would be down for that. We need another great YA series I feel like there have not been some in a long while.

5. Hot chocolate: Name a book that was sweet at first then became bitter.

For this one I’m going to have to draw blank. I don’t know any books that started off sweet but then became bitter. For these kinds of things I DNF a book if I don’t like it.

6. New Year’s Eve: Most Anticipated book of the new year!

Again for this one I’m gonna have to draw a blank because I don’t really keep up with what’s popular. I find a book that I like and I just read it. I typically tend to read authors who are more indie. Yes I know how that sounds but I really do you read a lot of independent others like once you are self published. It’s not that I’m not in the main stream box it’s just I have found that the more hyped up a book is and the more main stream it is the less I like it. So for me I find a lot of authors through either of them contacting me or I work with a PR company. The but the best way that I find them is bad going on Amazon and looking at the books that are like $.99. I have found some of my favorite authors that way. This goes back to you when I wasn’t able to work and go to school at the same time so because I wasn’t working I had to be very strategic with the money that I was given throughout the year. So for Christmas I would get like $300 in gift cards to iBooks or Amazon and that had to last me until my birthday. Which my birthdays in May so it was like six months and then from my birthday until Christmas. So I became really strategic with how are use my gift cards and how are use my money. So I found a lot of great deals for books that were less than five dollars and I found some amazing authors that way.

7. Family Time: Name a literary family that you would want to be a part of…

So I’m sure a lot of people know that my favorite book is vampire academy so I am assuming this is me assuming you may not assume this but I ask people in my real life and they’re like oh the vampire academy books you want to be related to rose. But that is not the case here there is a book series that I really really love it’s called the Ashen touch trilogy by Kristy Nicolle and I would love to be related to Haedes. And I probably spelled that wrong. But he is amazing I love the character that she wrote and his lineage is freaking awesome and that’s where I wanna B.

8. Wishes: What book do you wish you could re-read for all the feels?

Dear Lord for this one there are so many. I would really like to read in for the vampire academy series again. I would also really love to read listen to the luxe series by Jennifer L Armentrout. I would love to revisit the demon blood series and I’m forgetting the author. It’s really been that long since I’ve read it. I would love to reread the twilight series I haven’t done that in like 10 years. I would love to reread beautiful bastard, Fifty Shades of Grey, the submissive trilogy, that this man series. I mean there’s honestly a lot Gabriel’s in Ferneau that’s becoming a TV show next year. I mean there really is a lot that I would love to re-read and I am making it a goal for next year to re-read and then kind of report back on if I felt the same way about the series. So look out for that next year.

9. Spread the Joy: Who do you tag?

I absolutely tag everybody to do that. Please please please if you do it tag me and let me know so I can please read your responses. The one thing I love about tags is that everybody can do them and everybody’s answer is different.

So if you guys enjoyed this tag please leave a comment down below and tell me what series would you like to reread? Also what book are you most anticipating before the new year?

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of Wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. As it is in the Christmas season they are granting wishes so if you would like a wish granted feed them a treat and they will most likely be more likely to grant you that wish. As it is getting cold out into the human world the mermaids have come back to Wonderland and they are spreading their musical magic.

Until next time

Happy reading

Much love

Tag Tuesday – The Winter Tag

Happy Tuesday my wonderlandians. I hope your day started by a unicorn taking you to work. Mine did not start that way at all. I got up and had to defrost my car. I do this every morning lately. Snow. SMH. I am here with another tag for you. This time it is The Winter Tag.  Please enjoy.

1. What books are you hoping to get to this winter?

I don’t usually keep a TBR for winter. I usually just look at my books and see which one catches my eyes, but if I get gift cards for Christmas like I do every year. I will just go to amazon see what looks good buy those and read them. Everything else gets put on the back of the TBR list. Although, there are three books that I really want to get to by the end of the year. The dueology of Once a Witch, Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough. I try to read her books at least once a year. These have slowly become a tradition for me to read either at the end of the year or just right after the new year. Of course, I want to get to Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. These are the three books I want to get to.

2. Which character’s personality is as cold as ice?

Alistair Knight from Once a Witch, Always a Witch series. He is such a jerk. I will not go into detail. You really need to read the books. If you guys want more info on the books. They were mentioned in my Top Three Thursday blog post. So go check it out.

He is just so nasty.

3. Winter is a time for gift giving. What has been your favorite book you’ve received as a gift?

When I was younger I got this book from my grandma. I still have it. It was a red velvet cover of The Secret Garden. I have not read it. I have tried. It is my favorite book. I also got a book from her of  The Velveteen Rabbit my cat sadly destroyed that one.  She was old and peed all over it. My bookshelves were really close to grown and she got up there and peed.  She was old like 20 years old and could no longer find her litter box. It is really sad.

4. With Christmas and New Year it’s party season, but which character would you least like to get stuck talking to at a party?

Toby Pilgrim from Geek Girl. I feel really bad saying that. He is such a sweet character even though he does stalk the main character. He is one of those nerdy guys that had to correct you on everything. It drives me crazy. Therefore he would be my choice.

5. If you celebrate Christmas… Do you have any Christmas traditions? How do you spend the day?

Picking out our family tree

Making cookies

Going to my boyfriend’s mom’s house to make ornaments

We spend Christmas Eve with my grandparents. Opening up presents. Then Christmas day with my family. This year is going to be a bit different because I have moved out with my boyfriend.

6. Favourite Christmas film, TV special & song?

Home Alone

Any

Anything by Michael Bublé and The Happiest Christmas Tree by Nat King Cole.

 

As always, thank you for joining me here in our little part of Wonderland. If you want a wish granted please stop by and feed the unicorns.

Until next time.

Much love
