'Tis the Season Tag

'Tis the Season Tag

I saw this tag challenge on Kat's Youtube channel @ Katytastic and as you probably know by now, she is my favourite vlogger. If she does I tag I think looks pretty fun than I am going to do it if I can. You can check out her vlog post here.
1. Do you have a favourite Christmas read?
No, I don't think I do. Umm... I am trying to think... I don't know! A Christmas book I read recently and enjoyed was Unexpected Gifts, so I think I'll have to go with that.
Its actually out for free on Amazon at the moment. Click on the link to get your own copy! The companion book, Unexpected Endings, which I actually haven't read yet, is also out for free.
2. A book with blue on the cover.
The most recent blue book I read was Delirium but I am also reading The Body Finder which is blueish.
 3. Find a book that you would use as the star on your Christmas tree.
I assume by this question you mean the "star" that goes on the very top of your tree. Well, we use angels instead in Australia, or at least we do in my area, so instead I am going to use an angel book... Unearthly!
 4. Pick one fictional location that would be perfect for a winter vacation.
I don't know if the town from the Wolves of Mercy Falls series is fictional, based on a real town or what, but I am going to go with that place for my holiday. Not only because of the fact that it is snowy, cold and wintery in general, but because it has a huge forest (I love forests!), sounds simply beautiful and the fact that Sam and Cole would be there and I might be able to see them.... ;)
 5. Pick one fictional character you would take with you on your vacation.
Well, seeing as Cole St Clair would already be there (fingers crossed), I would take William Herondale! There are no words to explain this boy so I am going to leave it there.
 6. Name a book on your wishlist this year.

I really want to see the movie of it...
 7. Favourite holiday drink, treat and movie?
Drink = my Grandpa's punch
Treat = whatever my Granny makes for dessert that year. Its always amazing...
Movie = The Santa Claus franchises (expect whatever one had Jack Frost in it, that one was terrible) and Prancer

Did you enjoy this post? Let me know what you thought in the comments below. Feel free to consideration yourself tagged if you want to participate in this challenge. Please leave a link back to me if you do though, so I can see your answers too.

My official tag isn't going to be anyone in particular. I wasn't tagged myself so it doesn't feel right to tag anyone else.


  1. You guys use angels in Australia? That's so cool! :) The Unearthly cover is so gorgeous! I've heard amazing things, can't wait to read it!

    HERONDALE!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    The movie seems so cute and awesome! WANT! NEED! I've heard the book isn't all that amazing, though. *shrugs* Oh, well. BUT GOLDEN RULE! Read first, watch next.

    Great Tag! :D

    Waiting on Wednesday #7 @ My Little Corner For Books

    1. Do you use stars too? I think I like our tradition a little more... but I am a little biased! I hope you enjoy it. Its a really good book.

      Yes! Herondale!!!! <3

      I agree with that golden rule alright but which book!? :/

      Thank you! :)

  2. Oh, I love your answers Rachel :D
    Body Finder has been on my TBR list for a while now. And I read Unearthly (I loved it) but haven't read the sequels, hopefully over the holiday break :) And omg! *fans self* to be able to spend your vacation with Will Herondale, omg~ indeed there are no words.

    1. Thanks Izzy!
      I wasn't really a fan of The Body Finder - in fact, I had a lot of problems with it, so I wouldn't really recommend it!
      I need to read the Unearhtly sequels too! I loved the first book. Tucker! <3 *swoon*
      I cannot even find the worlds to imagine a holiday with Will. *jumps into a cold shower* :O

  3. I totally agree with you on Will Herondale. Sigh. He is the perfect book boyfriend! Gah! I really need to reread The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. I read it so long ago.. I can't remember what happens or what any of the characters are like, dangit! I hate when that happens. Great answers girl, I enjoyed this tag a lot (:

    1. Will is the most perfect book boyfriend is imaginable! Just... *swoon*! I want to reread the series too. As you said, the details are getting too fuzzy. I can barely remember what happens in the first book. I need to buy the first two though... Thanks Morrighan!

      P.S. Sorry this is a late reply. Christmas distracted me.

  4. Unearthly looks gorgeous and just like the kind of thing I want to read! Well, that has been added to my TBR.

    1. Its pretty good for an angel book. I really loved the characters. I hope you enjoy! :)
