The Christmas Cracker Book Tag

Another week closer to Christmas, another week perfect for a Book Tag. This time, I’m doing the Christmas Cracker Book Tag, which I found on the worldsunlikeourown book blog.

Let’s get started!


Pick a book with a wintery cover.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. So wintery and yet so warm and magical too. Definitely one I want to curl up with during the wintery months.

Pick a book you’re likely to buy as a present

Does it count if I want it as a present for myself? Either way, my choice has to be Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao. The cover looks gorgeous and the story sounds incredible. I’d be very happy to gift this to anyone… and then grab another copy for myself.

Pick a festive themed book

Going with a classic from my (and everyone else’s childhood) How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss. I read and rewatch this story every year. (Original animated version only!)

Pick a book you can curl up with by the fireplace

One that I will be curling up by the fireplace with is An Heiress’s Guide to Deception and Desire by Manda Collins. It may not be festive, but I’m so excited to dive right in to some historical fiction this holiday.

Pick a book you want to read over the festive period.

So many! For now, my top three picks would have to be Sorcery of Thorns and Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson, and Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch.

Pick a book that’s so good it gives you the chills

Definitely Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. I know I used it in the previous book tag, but it’s still one of the best books I’ve ever read – Christmas themed or otherwise – and everyone should know about it.

Pick a book going on your Christmas wishlist

My wishlist feels like it gets bigger every time I scroll through Goodreads, not to mention all the great reviews I read from other bloggers! This year, I’m really hoping to grab a copy of A Master of Djinn by P. Djèlí Clark. I’ve seen so many wonderful reviews for it, and I’m really in the mood for some more historical fantasy. With any luck, it’s already waiting under the tree for me right now.


Thanks for reading everyone! I won’t be tagging anyone this time, but if you feel like doing it, make sure to let me know. I’d love to see your answers too.
