Hi, I hope you all are having a lovely Sunday so far!
Before I introduce this tag I have some really awesome news to share if you haven’t already seen my tweet… I got accepted into pharmacy school this past Tuesday! I’m also done with all my fall semester finals and I’m officially on winter break (that means I’ll be posting/blog hopping more this month!).
So I thought what better way to celebrate the start of my break by scheduling this fun and festive tag, originally created by Astra at A Stranger’s Guide to Novels. I was tagged by Joey at Thoughts and Afterthoughts. Thanks, Joey! I’m so excited to dive right into it since winter is my favorite season ironically.
Name a book you’d like to see under your Christmas tree?
Probably the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone because I’ve seen it in store several times and it’s completely gorgeous!
A book you’ll be reading during the Christmas season?
Ah well, I plan to try to catch up with my reviewing queue while I’m on break. Plus, there’s so many full price purchases I want to get to before they appear on Book Outlet or the bargain sections of bookstores. But I’m currently reading a super wintery read, My True Love Gave to Me. I’ve only read a couple of the short stories but I really like it so far! It really reminds me of Let It Snow, another young adult holiday anthology that I read and loved years ago.
Favorite Christmas movie?
Santa Clause! It’s a humorous film, and Eric Lloyd was so adorably cute as a kid in this.
Do you like snow?
Oh my gosh, YES! This is kind of the main reason why I love winter so much. But keep in mind I live in the south, so we don’t have inches of snow like up north. More like powdery white stuff coating our lawns. Not enough to require us to shovel or anything like that. It’s just super, snowglobe-like pretty!
Name a character you would like to spend Christmas day with?
I would probably choose the Weasleys. I really adored how warm and welcoming the family was towards Harry. I think it’d be great to wear ugly, itchy sweaters and drink cocoa with that sweet family.
To give or to receive?
Definitely give. I don’t really celebrate Christmas, so I don’t expect people to get me anything. But I like to give close people in my life gifts during the season. I enjoy Christmas shopping and wrapping gifts. The best part is watching people open presents. Especially children.
What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
This is a hard one. Maybe Camp Half-Blood? I like the idea of spending Christmas with a lot of people. Plus, I’ve never been to a camp before. Also, isn’t that the safest place for half-bloods and regular people too?
Fondest Christmas memory?
This is kind of weird but I really don’t remember specific memories of Christmas. Like I said, me and my dad don’t really celebrate it since we’re Buddhist. The salon is closed and, of course, I’m off from school so we usually head up to Charlotte or down to Atlanta to the predominantly Vietnamese areas and eat at a nice restaurant. So spending time with my dad, I guess. 🙂
Can you say “Christmas tree” ten times fast in a row (while pronouncing them correctly)?
I just tried it; and I can! I think I have more trouble with my ‘W’ and ‘R’s to be honest. So that wasn’t much of a tongue twister for me.
I tag –
Like I mentioned in my Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag post, from now on I’ll be tagging my usual blogger buddies. And some of them are inactive in the blogosphere, but I’ll continue to tag them unless they specify they have become tag/award free or will be taking an official hiatus. I also made sure to tag bloggers that haven’t done this tag, at least to my knowledge. But why not spread the seasonal cheer? I tag everyone reading this post!

- Analee at Book Snacks
- Ashley at Dreamingthroughliterature

So that’s it! As always, thank you for reading.
As this posts, I’ll probably be at the movie theaters watching Mockingjay Part Two with my friend. Depending how good the film is I may write a review. Have a nice day, everyone! 🙂
