Harry Potter Christmas Book Tag
Blogmas Day 25
It’s the last day of Blogmas, and I can’t believe I actually managed to complete the entire thing my first year! I was supposed to round things off with a book review, but it didn’t feel nearly festive enough, so I’m ending Blogmas 2020 with another Christmassy tag based on Harry Potter, which is always a book that comes to mind at this time of year! I found this tag over at Book and Corner.
It’s your first Christmas at Hogwarts. What’s one book you’ve asked for this year?
One book I’ve asked for this year is Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.
You spot Hagrid hauling the Christmas tree through the grounds. What is the longest (or heaviest!) book you own?
The longest AND heaviest (fiction) book I own is my collector’s edition of Lord of the Rings that I bought earlier this year. If we were counting non-fiction, a couple of my university textbooks would probably win.
It’s time for the famous Great Hall feast. What’s one book you can’t read without snacks?
I’m usually really good about not eating or drinking while reading, but Enid Blyton’s novels, particularly The Famous Five is really hard to read without getting hungry!
Well done, you’ve brewed your first Polyjuice potion. What’s one book you’d change the cover of?
I really don’t like the covers of the Camelot Rising series – the story is great, but the covers were such a letdown after the gorgeous ones of The Conqueror’s Saga.
You receive a brand new Firebolt for Christmas. What’s one book you read super quickly?
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
You join Harry for his first proper Christmas. What’s one book you’d love to receive this year?
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
You get hit by one of Fred and George’s flying snowballs. What’s a book you wanted to throw across the room?
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern – I can’t remember the last book I read that was so frustratingly vague!
You’ve just visited Hogsmeade for the first time. What’s one popular book you haven’t read yet?
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.
Congratulations, you’ve been invited to the Yule Ball. What book about Christmas do you love?
I’d generally choose a classic, but I’ll go with Cynthia Hand’s The Afterlife of Holly Chase.
You find Ron’s deluminator. What’s one book that’s helped you through some dark times?
Harry Potter of course, which is a series that I grew up with and am still very fond of.
I’m not going to be tagging anyone specifically, but do feel free to do this tag if you like it. Make sure to link back so I can read your answers!
