First things first. This tag was created by Lizzie loves books.
To start of the 12 days till Christmas blog posts that will be coming your way. I thought this would be the best thing to do. Plus I’ve been feeling pretty unmotivated on every front. Joys of the summer heat kicking in.
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?
Purely an emotional reason. I don’t know if reading this book in a different mindset would make me feel differently. But in saying that Benjamin is one of my favourite authors. His writing is always like listening to your favourite song. So poetic. So beautiful to read. Yet, so tragic.
ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TWO TURTLE DOVES.
Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?
For a long time I would have said Malec. Now I’m not so sure. I have a few I would die on a sword for. Like Andreil for example. So now I’m like how do I choose 🤷🏻♀️
ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: THREE FRENCH HENS.
In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?
Oh no. Why. Shit. I’ve read quite a few really good trilogies this year. And I’m purposely not saying my favourite all for the game just to change things up here. So let’s go with a steamy read.
ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FOUR CALLING BIRDS.
Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favorite series?
It was this or the four horsemen but I haven’t read the last book yet. So I can’t say I loved it when I haven’t actually read death yet. So here’s some sexy wolves (Gordo and Gavin are still my boys 😍)
ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.
One ring to rule them all! Who is your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?
In the silk and steel series Akiem was made out to be this complete dick in his brothers eyes. But when Akiem got his own book (the black prince) you actually felt sorry for him. And for me I ended up loving him more then all the other characters. So I’d say he would fit this prompt well.
ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SIX GEESE A LAYING.
Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favorite world/world-building?
It will have to be the middle earth right? Because I’d love to holiday there for a bit. I think it would be nice.
ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SEVEN SWANS A SWIMMING.
Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favorite animal sidekick?
That would go to chairman meow and church from the shadowhunter series. Cats for the win.
ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: EIGHT MAIDS A MILKING.
Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?
Mmm….I actually have no clue…
ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: NINE LADIES DANCING.
Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favorite kickass female lead?
Violeta Graceling. She was awesome. I really loved reading from her point of view. Leta could hunt and she was stubborn as all hell. Plus she and Rowan really bounced off each other very we. She’s what he needed. A girl who wouldn’t take his shit.
ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.
How about your favorite leading lad?
Ninian is one of my all time favourites. I just connected with him so much. He had such a hard life. And what he would do for his fam.
ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: ELEVEN PIPES PIPING.
What is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)
I’m currently reading this one. It’s about a masquerade that never ends. Alot of dancing. Alot of music. Just a bunch of Faes trapped. It’s so good.
ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING.
Drum roll please…what is your favorite read of this year?
I haven’t come to that decision yet damn you. I’ve read 107 books. It’s going to take time. But I’ll be posting a top 11 hopefully tomorrow. Or I’ll chicken out and do something else and that top 11 will happen later.
Thank you for reading ❤️
