Father Christmas: Name a book you received as a child that you treasure to this day.
My answer to this one is actually the same as Tasha’s: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, which my aunt and uncle gave to me. I recall devouring the entire series in a week within Christmas.
The Ghost of Christmas past: Is there a book or series you like to revisit each year at Christmas time?
Is there a book that I like to reread each year around Christmas? I don’t believe I read any one particular book around Christmas time every year…
Christmas tree: Name a series that reaches new heights with every entry.
That’s an easy one. I feel like Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass novels just get better with every new book.
Friends and family: Name a book with fantastic characters.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
Decorations: Name a book with a gorgeous cover you would proudly display on your shelves.
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini–I love the graphics and the vibrant colors.
Christmas cards: Name a book that carries a great message.
The Giver by Lois Lowry carries a great message about freedom, choices, and perfection while still being an amazing dystopian novel.
Ice and snow: Name a book that you were hoping to love but which ultimately left you feeling cold.
After reading so many great reviews about Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo I had insanely high expectations. While I did not necessarily dislike the book (the last 100 pages were actually quite exciting) I did not like it nearly as much as I thought I would.
Christmas lunch: Name a book that was big and intimidating but oh so worth it in the end.
When I picked up Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, I remember specifically noting the thickness of the book (2 1/4 in.) but after reading it, it was definitely worth it.
Mince pies: Name a book you found sweet and satisfying.
One book that I found sweet and satisfying was Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls.
Presents: What book do you wish you could give everyone to read?
Probably Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein. It’s a mystery novel about these kids participating in a game where they must escape from an amazing library. I think many people would enjoy this because of the flowing writing style and intriguing library (designed by an eccentric gamemaker.)
