Blogmas 2018 | The Twelve Days of Christmas Book Tag

This was fun way to wrap up Blogmas 2018! I hope you enjoyed my posts this year, and I will definitely be participating in this again next year! Stay tuned after Christmas for my 2018 wrap up posts where I will discuss the best and worst books of the year, as well as some books I hope to get to in 2019!


On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: a partridge in a pear tree.
The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favorite stand alone?
The best stand alone novel I read in 2018 was Bird Box by Josh Malerman.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: two turtle doves.
Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?
Lara Jean and Peter 4-Ever.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: three French hens.
In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?
To All the Boys I’ve Loved
Before by Jenny Han was the best trilogy (and only trilogy) I read this year.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: four calling birds.
Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favorite series?
Harry Potter
by JK Rowling. Duh.

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: five golden rings.
One ring to rule them all! Who is your favorite villain/antagonist?
Joe from You by Caroline Kepnes.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: six geese a-laying.
Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favorite world/world-building?
The High Court of the Faerie from The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: seven swans a-swimming.
Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favorite animal sidekick?
Hedwig from Harry Potter because I can’t think of a book I read this year with an animal sidekick.

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: eight maids a milking.
Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level? 
I’ll go with The Cruel Prince by Holly Black again. I seem to remember some magical berries? It’s been awhile since I read it.

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: nine ladies dancing.
Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favorite kickass female lead?
Rielle from Furyborn by Claire Legrand. I thought she was awesome during the trials to prove she is the Sun Queen.

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: ten lords a-leaping.
How about your favorite leading lad?
Peter Kavinsky from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Swoon.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me: eleven pipers piping.
What is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)
I can’t think of a single book I’ve read that references music or has musical influence!

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: twelve drummers drumming.
Drum roll please…what is your favorite read of this year?
This is so hard. And honestly it is a toss up between Bird Box by Josh Malerman and The Anomaly by Michael Rutgers because both books were unlike anything else I read this year. Then again, I am reading Scythe by Neal Shusterman this month, and it could very well claim the top spot this year!
