Hey all, Dani here.
I was tagged for this by Amber at Step Into a Book World, and since it is holiday themed, I had to rearrange my schedule a bit so I could get this up in time. Basically I had to push back one of my book reviews, but that is totally fine because it wasn’t a time sensitive one. Anyway, Amber is awesome so go check out her blog, and this tag sounds fun and festive, so let’s jump into it.
1.) “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch”:
Name a villainous character you couldn’t help but love.
Okay, so I realize he’s not a villain (to us anyway), but I definitely think that Kaz Brekker qualifies for this question. He makes some not so nice decisions, and he isn’t afraid to do a bad thing provided it benefits him and his crew.
2) “All I Want for Christmas is You”:
Which book do you most hope to see under your Christmas tree?
Yes, I am very well aware that this book doesn’t come out until the end of August 2018. But pretty much everyone just gets me Barnes & Noble gift cards for Christmas–either because they don’t want to risk getting me something I already have or they don’t want me to know ahead of time that I’m getting a specific title.
3.) “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”
Name a character that overcomes major obstacles and learns to believe in themselves.
For this one I have to go with Midoriya aka Deku. Okay, he might still be working on some of the obstacles, but even when he was Quirkless he believed that he could be a hero, so that’s something.
4. “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”
A) Which character do you think would be on the top of the naughty list?
B) Which character do you think would be at the top of the nice list?
For the Naughty list, I’m picking Raishan, an ancient green dragon from Critical Role. Okay, yes, I know this might be stretching it a bit because The Chronicles of Exandria Vol I: Vox Machina is extra information about the characters and events in the web series, but Raishan is definitely one of the most cunning villainous characters I have come across.
For the Nice list, I am going with Eliza Schulyer. In the book she spends a lot of time helping the troops, gathering supplies and such for them, and I just feel like she is trying her best to do as much good as she can.
5.) “Frosty the Snowman”
Which book just melts your heart.
This was such a fun cute geeky read. I had to go with it for this.
6.) “Feliz Navidad”
Choose a book that takes place in a country other than your own.
This takes place in numerous countries that are not my own so yay!
7.) “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”
Which holiday themed book do you use to spread the Christmas joy?
Ummm….How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I guess?
8.) “Sleigh Ride”
Which fictional character would you choose to spend the holidays with (doesn’t have to be a love interest!)
We can have a reading party. It’ll be great.
9.) “Baby it’s Cold Outside”
Which book that you didn’t like would you sacrifice to a fire to warm yourself up in the cold?
I guess I’ll have to go with pretty much the book I dislike the most, which is The Awakening by Kate Chopin. Though this wouldn’t keep a person warm for long; it is a relatively small book.
10. ) “Do you hear what I hear”
Which book do you think everyone should read?
I could go with my standard answer of any of the books in the Colorworld series by Rachel E Kelly, but I’ll change it up a little bit and go with this lovely and amazingly diverse sci-fi tale.
And since we are getting so close to Christmas, I don’t want to just choose a bunch of people who may not have the time for it. So, if you want to do this tag, then you have been TAGGED! I’d love to see your answers.
