I don’t do these very often. My blog posts are usually written well in advance and I always forget about them. But I haven’t done one in a while and this certainly seemed like fun, so I wanted to give it a go.
I was tagged to do this my good friend Ari Meghlen. I don’t normally tag people in these things, so if you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged. Or feel free to play along in the comments below.
Also, I’m going to go through the books I read in 2018 to narrow my choices down a bit. Though I might branch out a bit depending on the prompt.
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?
One book I read this year and absolutely loved was Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I read it in one sitting pretty much on Christmas Eve last year. (Yes, I said I was going to look at 2018 but I technically reviewed the book in January, so there.)
Shawn and Gus from the Psych series. They’re not a couple, but they have the best relationship.
I don’t read trilogies that often and I honestly couldn’t think of one. I did read a manga trilogy this year which I enjoyed a lot called Your Name by Makoto Shinkai. So, I’m counting that one.
Does this need to be a question? Warriors by Erin Hunter, hands down.
Voldemort from Harry Potter. He’s scary.
I’m saying Harry Potter again. I want my letter!
O’Ryan the cat from Carol J. Perry’s Witch City Mystery series. That cat is awesome and totally knows what’s up.
Honestly, I guess I could say Harry Potter again? Chocolate frogs are good. Unless cookbooks count and then I’d say the Nerdy Nummies cookbook by Rosanna Pansino.
Nora White from the Nora White story by Yecheilyah Ysrayl.
Looking back on books I read this year, I enjoyed Davis from Turtles All The Way Down by John Green. He wasn’t necessarily the “leading” character, but I enjoyed him all the same.
Believe it not, I haven’t really read anything that has to do with music. Or, not that I can recall, anyway. So, I’m going to go with El Deafo by Cece Bell, a graphic novel memoir about the author who got ill and lost her hearing and goes through the struggles of that.
I really enjoyed Wishtree by Katherine Applegate. I thought it was very inspiring and true to life.
And there you have it. The 12 days of Christmas book tag. Thanks again to Ari for tagging me! Feel free to do this tag on your own blog. If you do, send me a link. I’d love to see your answers.
