I originally saw this tag on Kristin Kraves Books and thought it was such a cool tag. Be sure to check out her post to see her responses and feel free to tag me in your post if you decide to do this tag too!
It’s Christmas today, and while I’m Jewish, I also have lots of friends and some family who celebrate Christmas, so what better way to help celebrate than with a Festive Christmas Book Tag!? I found this tag on Jenniely‘s blog, but it was originally posted by GirlReading on YouTube. I love the Holiday’s and December in general, not only because it’s my birthday month, but because it just feels like such a joyful, thankful time.
It’s almost fall which means I have to prepare myself with all the fun fall things like tags, recommendations, and the holidays!
I saw this post on Erin @ Rins Reads blog and I thought it was so cute! Fall is my favorite season, so of course I have to do a fall time book tag to welcome in the best season of all!
I haven’t done a book tag in a little bit and this one looked so fun! Plus, my reading has started to slow down and I definitely need some more content on my blog. I hope you guys like this post!
So I was tagged in this post about two weeks ago and well, I had bronchitis and pneumonia this past week so I got behind on things! But now, even though winter is mere days away, I will be doing the Fall Bucket List Book Tag! This tag was created by Read by Tiffany and she created the wonderful graphics that come along with this tag so thank you! (I’m awful with graphic design to I’m grateful I don’t have to create anything myself). I was tagged by Alexa from Writing the Universe to do this tag, thanks Alexa!

I haven’t read a lot of light hearted books recently so I’m going back into the past past with this answer. I would have to say My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. This cute, somewhat historical, romance book has the humor and lightheartedness to get you zipping through the story without even realizing it.
This one is so easy because there have been SO many hyped up books recently. I recently finished (and by recently I mean like 5 hours ago as I’m writing this post) Queen of Nothing by Holly Black which has been hyped from the start. I can’t say that this book didn’t live up to it thought, it was a really good ending.
So this may not seem like a story with great friendships, but trust me, it totally does. Gideon and Harrow’s interactions had me rolling on the floor laughing and could even get me to shed a few tears. This was a great enemies to friends kind of story but with so many other awesome friendships in between. Plus it’s a super epic sci-fi, fantasy novel in SPACE! Super fun.
Okay so this doesn’t seem like a heart warming book but it warms mine. This series has everything I love in it like magic, sassy but strong female characters, true character development, and like total hottie love interests! It has everything I could want in an epic fantasy and more and Claire’s writing always leaves me speechless.
Ummm, I’m honestly not sure of any books or characters with talented chefs. I would have to say the closest one is Lara Jean from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Her love for baking I assume would translate over to her talent for it, although I don’t remember off the top of my head if she is an acclaimed baker by her friends and family. I do know they love her baked goods, but talented chef? I don’t remember. Someone can yell at me in the comments letting me know if I’m right or wrong.
So, getting this book was a shock because I won it from Goodreads, which never happens, and it’s a book I ADORED. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the book since the synopsis was pretty slim when I requested it but WOW did it impress me. I loved it so much I’ve been collecting the ARCs/manuscripts for it and I’m in the process of finding all the special editions for it. Yeah, it really made me jump for joy. Also, the cover art is GORGEOUS!
Okay, this was fun! I nominate EVERYONE to do this tag because I don’t even know 7 bloggers and I think everyone would enjoy doing this.

I saw this on LauReads blog and wanted to do it, so here it is! (post I saw linked)
Answer these questions truthfully.
1. Which book, most recently, did you not finish?
The Gilded Wolves was one that I just couldn’t get through. Not sure if it’s due to the book or because of me, but I just couldn’t get through it, no matter how many times I’ve tried to pick it up.
2. Which book is your guilty pleasure?
Throne of Glass because it fulfills all of the things I want in a book and I can reread it at any time, no problem.
3. Which book do you love to hate?
I hated The Hunger Games and I have no shame with that. I don’t think I will ever like that series.
4. Which book would you throw into the sea?
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. If you love yourself, don’t read this book, ever.
5. Which book have you read the most?
I don’t reread a lot of books, but The Mortal Instruments series is one I’ve picked up the most at 3 rereads!
6. Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
Anything John Steinbeck. Or Hunger Games. Or non-fiction. I think there’s a theme here…
7. Which book could you not live without?
1984 – it’s so good and if I didn’t have it on hand to read during hard times, I don’t know what I would do.
8. Which book made you the angriest?
Empire of Storms/Tower of Dawn because THE ENDING. And I had to wait almost 2 years to find out what happened.
9. Which book made you cry the most?
It’s between Clockwork Princess and Lord of Shadows – of course Cassandra Clare makes me have full blown sobbing sessions over her books.
10. Which book cover do you hate the most?
I hate film covers. When Twilight and City of Bones film covers came out I hated them so much I started a boycott with my friends.
I tag anyone that wants to do this!
