Tag||Dashing Through the Snow.

dashingthroughthesnow

Hey! I was tagged by Loreva from La Book Dreamer to do the Dashing Through the Snow tag. Thank you for tagging me! This tag was originally created by Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels.

The rules are simple:

  • Thank the curator.
  • Tag 5 people to spread the Christmas joy.
  • Have fun!

Now onto the questions!

Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree…

I went so book buying crazy this year and this is actually kind of a tough question, lol! I was such a huge Clarissa Explains It All fan as a kid (I swear I loved that show so much), so I was excited when I heard there was going to be a book out about her! The only reason why I haven’t actually bought it myself is because the hardcover is kind of pricey; it jumps from $17-20 (e-book is $13) and I just can’t do it. So I will definitely be okay with someone else buying it for me, haha. 😛 Here’s the first sentence taken off Goodreads:

thingsicantexplain
Things I Can’t Explain by Mitchel Kriegman

“A complete re-imagining of Clarissa Explains it All as 20-something Clarissa tries to navigate the unemployment line, mompreneurs and the collision of two people in love. “

A book you will be reading during the Christmas season!

I don’t have any Christmasy themed books to read this month, but I did make a December TBR and one of the books that I will be hopefully reading this month is Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. I’m excited that I won an ARC of it. 🙂

Favorite Christmas movie!

I think I will instead list you the Christmas movies I watch every single December. These are all my favorites and I make it a point to watch them every year. Ask the boyfriend, I’m sure he’ll tell you how annoying it is for him. 😛

Do you like snow?  

I was actually born in Illinois, so I was able to experience snow as a kid and it was fun! I loved it! Then I moved to Florida and snow is non-existent here. HELLO SANDY WINTER! Then when I was going to start 9th grade, we moved back to Illinois for a year and the snow was no longer any fun. It was more annoying than anything! So I guess I have a love/hate for snow. I want it because I don’t have it, but I know if I have it then I won’t want it anymore.

Name a character that you would like to spend your Christmas with!

Just one? This is going to be a tough one, because I just want one huge Christmas party with all of my favorite characters. I think I’ll choose Jasper Dent from I Hunt Killers. I think that will make for one pretty crazy Christmas.

To give or to receive?

I am all about giving gifts! I take pride in finding the perfect gifts for everyone. I love seeing their faces when they open their gifts. This year though, I have no idea what to buy anyone! Like NO IDEA! I actually haven’t gotten anyone anything, besides Shelbie LOL! She’s easy and fun to buy for though, because I just buy all the things I want since we pretty much like almost all of the same things. 😛 So this year, it’s going to be one of those “it’s the thought that counts” type of things, because I haven’t done any Christmas shopping and I really am at a loss at what to get anyone!

What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?

Hogwarts. End of story. It sounds like it’ll be so fun and I really just need to hop on the Hogwarts Express like NOW, because before you know it Christmas will be here and I will be sad if I miss the train!

Fondest Christmas memory!

My memory is horrible and I don’t really remember too many Christmas’. I do love spending time with my family on Christmas. My cousin Michelle has a Christmas party every year, so it’s always fun going to that. This year I am going to be leaving a day earlier, so I can help her with all the decorating and cooking and Christmas crafts! haha. 😀

Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST  in a row (pronouncing it correctly)!

Hmmm, so I tried this and it kind of sounds like I can pronounce it correctly. GO ME! CHRISTMAS TREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I tag:

Shelbie @ Lu-Lu’s Rants & Reads
Maren @ The Worn Bookmark
Emily @ The Diary of a Bibliophile
Kayla @ Bookedsolid1989
Jenna @ Reading with Jenna
And anyone else that wants to do this tag! It’s a lot of fun! Please feel free to ignore if you have already done the tag, don’t want to do it or you don’t celebrate Christmas.

I have a couple book reviews coming up soon! 😀 I’m glad I am getting back into the swing of things as far as reading goes this month! Feel free to check out some of my recent posts linked below.

Random||Thanksgiving, Christmas, Pictures & More. – a kind of non-bookish post talking about my Thanksgiving trip and pictures I’ve taken to go along with it.
Friday Finds #39. – the books that I added to my Goodreads TBR last week! I actually been adding lots the last couple weeks. The last couple months I haven’t really been finding many new books, so I am excited!

I hope you have a great day! 🙂

  2. What a great book tag! I think I am going to borrow this one for a post next week. I hope you enjoy Wolf by Wolf when you read it! I am really curious to hear what you think. I am having the same problems you are having giving gifts this year. It used to be so easy, but it seems like the people I am buying for already have everything they want or need. I think my husband is getting socks under the tree this year…you can never have too many socks!

    • Awesome! 🙂 Wolf by Wolf sounds so good, so I can’t wait to read it! I’ve never had a problem with gift giving until this year, sigh. Socks are always nice! I love socks!

  3. Ahh thanks for tagging me! Loved all your answers! I have to watch all those Christmas movies every year too 😀 tonight I’m planning on watching Home Alone lol. I also want to spend Christmas at Hogwarts. It would definitely be magical! 😉

  4. Oh this tag sounds like so much fun! I was on the look out for Christmas tags to get me into the holiday spirit and this came at the perfect time!! Home Alone is my favourite Christmas movie and maybe just favourite movie in general! I love it soooo much. I also love the second one but the first one will always be the one that I associate most with Christmas. I’ll definitely be watching those two this year.
