'Tis The Season Book Tag!!

I don't usually do many tags or awards, but this one was short, cute and festive and I felt like I had to do it! So thank you for tagging me Eileen from BookCatPin!!

1. Do you have a favourite winter read?

Hmmm, no not really, not something I re-read in winter or anything, but I feel like My True Love Gave To Me anthology is quite the right read to get yourself in the mood for the festive season, so I foresee myself re-reading it next year to get in the Xmasy mood!

2. Find a book with blue in the cover?

Currently reading this one! Fascinating, creepy and quite graphic & disturbing at times if you are not in the health care or similar line of work!

3. Find a book you'd use as the star on the Christmas tree.

It's very apt as far as the light and shine for top of the Xmas tree, and can also be a little bit of an inside yoke for myself given the title and theme!

4. Pick one fictional place that would be perfect for a winter vacation!

I have to agree with Eileen! Hogwarts would be perfect, with all the amazing food, roaring fires and magical trees and ornaments!!

5. Pick one fictional character you'd take with you on your winter vacation!

Oh, that one's easy! I'd take Jamie Fraser, from the Outlander series! I have the most massive fictional crush on him, and not only he's hot but he's also a great storyteller!

6. Name one book on your wish list this year.

Just one? I can't name just one!! Cruel Beauty, Beware The Wild, The Kiss of Deception, Exquisite Captive, Forbidden, Zodiac... You know what? I'll just link you to my GR wish list!

7. Favourite holiday drink, treat and movie?

Hmmm, favourite drink? Probably hot chocolate or a nice spice chai, but I drink both year round... Probably one of those lovely Xmas teas that smell and taste amazing! Favourite treat? Roscon de Reyes! (Spanish pastry with whipped cream eaten around Epiphany) and favourite movie? Love Actually!!

Yep, that was short, sweet and quite fun! I'm gonna tag a few of my friends, but guys you can do it or not, no worries!!
