Hello bookish people! Blogmas is one of the best times of the year for book tags because there are just so many fun Christmas and holiday themed ones to do. So, of course we had to do the Harry Potter Christmas Tag. This tag was created last year by Charleigh @ Charleigh Writes. There are a few rules she’s created to go along with this tag, so let’s go over them before we get into the questions.
1. Link back to Charleigh so she can read your answers!
2. You can’t choose Harry Potter for any of the answers.
3. Tag however many people at the end
4. Have fun!
It’s your first Christmas at Hogwarts. What’s one book you’ve asked for this year?
Amanda- The collectors edition of Crooked Kingdom. It’s stunning.
Antonia- Starsight by Brandon Sanderson.
You spot Hagrid hauling the Christmas tree through the grounds. What is the longest (or heaviest!) book you own?
Amanda- Without looking, I’d guess The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.
Antonia- I think it’s my copy of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. It’s the entire series in one book.
It’s time for the famous Great Hall feast. What’s one book you can’t read without snacks?
Amanda- All books. I love to snack while I read.
Antonia- I’m also always snacking.
Well done, you’ve brewed your first Polyjuice Potion. What’s one book you’d change the cover of?
Amanda- The Vampire Academy series. I hate book covers with faces on them.
Antonia- Ooh, there’s so many. I’ll choose the Bloodlines series because I agree with Amanda.
You receive a brand new Firebolt for Christmas. What’s one book you read super quickly?
Amanda- All of Lynsay Sands Argeneau romance novels. They’re so fun and I can never stop until I’ve read it in one sitting.
Antonia- I really don’t read very fast. I guess I tend to go through Nora Roberts’ books quickly though. Even when rereading I get so invested in her characters.
You join Harry for his first proper Christmas. What’s one book you’d love to receive this year?
Amanda- Honestly, I’d love for someone to surprise me with a book they loved that I’ve never heard of.
Antonia- I like Amanda’s idea. Surprise presents are the best way to find books outside your usual niche.
You get hit by one of Fred and George’s flying snowballs. What’s a book you wanted to throw across the room?
Amanda- The Dragon Republic becasue it used addiction as a plot device and I was pissed.
Antonia- Ogre Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. It’s been awhile since I’ve been so disappointed by a book ending.
You’ve just visited Hogsmead for the first time. What’s one popular book you haven’t read yet?
Amanda- Lots? But I’m going to list a graphic novel for this one, Heartstopper Vol 1 by Alice Oseman.
Antonia- Oh wow. So many. Divergent by Veronica Roth comes to mind.
Congratulations! You’ve been invited to the Yule Ball. What book about Christmas do you love?
Amanda- If I was allowed to use the Harry Potter books for this book tag, I would use them here. But since I can’t, instead I’ll name The Polar Express.
Antonia- Hmm, I don’t read a lot of Christmas books.
You find Ron’s deluminator. What’s one book that’s helped you through dark times?
Amanda- Looking for Alaska by John Green. It’s a book that came to me right when I needed the message it shared.
Antonia- The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory.
