dashing through the snow

I was tagged by Astra over at A Stranger’s Guide To Novels and she also created this awesome tag! So thanks Astra for not only tagging me but creating this new tag, it’s super impressive! Make sure you guys head over to her blog and check out the original post!

The Rules:

  1. Thank The Curator (Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide To Novels)
  2. Tag 5 People To Spread The Christmas Joy!
  3. Have Fun!

1. Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree.


Alright well there’s a TON of books I’d like to see under the tree this year but a lot of them I can buy cheaper on my Kindle soooooo I’m going to go with the box set of “The Monstrumologist” series!

Is it cheating to choose that as an answer? Since it’s more than one book? Oh well.

I have been meaning to read this series for a while now and if I can get all of them for Christmas that’d be pretty great.

2. A book you’ll be reading during the Christmas Season.


I won’t be reading anything really Christmas themed but I will be getting around to reading “Soundless” by Richelle Mead! I actually bought this recently while Black Friday shopping and I’ve been meaning to do a bookhaul post…..but I’m lazy. So sorry about that but look for that post sometime this week!

3. Favourite Christmas Movie.

Hands down it’s “Elf”. I don’t watch a lot of Christmas movies I just watch “Elf” repeatedly, I’m a big Will Ferrell fan and I think he’s hilarious. I get really out of control with my “Elf” references as well…..

4. Do you like snow?

This is a very hard question for me. Yes I like snow because it’s pretty and I can go snowmobiling, BUT I really hate it because it makes driving anywhere extremely difficult here. North Dakota is not a place to live if you actually want to LIKE the snow.

I’m using this picture to make a point…it’s not really that bad but it’s damn near close.

There is such a thing as TOO much snow and in North Dakota that’s true.


So overall I guess my answer is no I don’t like snow just because it has become a major pain in my ass as I’ve aged. When I was a kid it was awesome but now that I’m an “adult” I have to DRIVE in it and it’s not fun anymore.

5. Name a character you you would like to spend your Christmas day with.

Just one?! Ok well I have two varying answers depending on the situation.

#1) I’d pick Gandalf from “The Hobbit” or “The Lord of the Rings” in hopes that he would bestow some wisdom on me or even better take me on an adventure.

#2) If Gandalf cannot take me on an adventure and I have to sit at home all of Christmas day then I’d pick Cersei Lannister from the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. That’s right. Cersei. Because I actually really love her wicked bitchiness. I would sit and drink wine with her and be sarcastic and make plots to destroy my enemies.

6. To give or toΒ receive?

Everyone loves to get presents and I’m no exception but I actually really like GIVING presents more. I like the feeling I get when I give someone something, especially since most of the time I put some work into the gifts. I’ve made gift baskets and such before and I always feel really proud when I give them to people!

7. What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?

Middle Earth. Is there anything special that happens in Middle Earth for Christmas? No because there is no Christmas, BUT I’d really like to go there anyways…….

Otherwise I’d love to spend Christmas at Hogwarts since they actually celebrate it…..

8. Fondest Christmas memory?

Well that’s actually pretty hard since I don’t have any specific ones that I find worthy of being discussed. So I’ll go with a Christmas-related memory.

One year a very long time ago, I was like 7 or 8, my mother decided to have a Christmas party at our house and invite TONS of people over. Well being North Dakota of course there was this awful blizzard that started when everyone was still at our house.

So everyone, EVERYONE got snowed in with us and our house isn’t really big enough to accommodate 30-40 people sleeping. Sure it wasn’t so bad since I liked everyone there but….still. It was a lot of people!

9. Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST Β in a row (pronouncing it correctly!)

I doubted myself but apparently I can do it! Yay!

    Great post! Haha I love the picture you used to make your point about snow- I agree, once you’re an adult and can’t just take days off for snow, it becomes annoying and makes it impossible to get around- grr. I’d definitely pick Gandalf too- but I couldn’t bear to be around Cersei for even a minute! Yes GIVING, definitely! And I’d pick Middle Earth too- or Narnia- cos that’s probably more Christmasy. But Middle Earth I want to go to more- it’s so hard to choose!

      Thanks! And I’m glad we can agree on most of my answers, haha! I would definitely just go to Middle Earth and if it isn’t Christmas-y enough we can always just…decorate. πŸ™‚

        haha brilliant idea! I now have an image of a very angry looking elf covered in tinsel- for some reason!

        It’s probably Thranduil! Or maybe even Legolas, haha πŸ™‚ I can’t see them being too mad about it though…..

    Thank you for tagging me! ❀ It looks like so much fun and I'll be doing it a little close to Christmas. πŸ˜€
    I have read the first two books of The Monstrumologist series and I absolutely adored them! Hope you can get them for Christmas. Also I seriously need to re-watch Elf, I haven't seen that movie in ages!

    Thanks for doing my tag! I can see why people would dislike snow but it makes my Decembers too Christmas-ey to not love it! I love Elf! Such a funny movie, I have it on dvd. Gandalf is an excellent person to bring! All wise and nobel.

    Oh man, I only see that much of snow on news! I can’t really imagine how bad it is but it seems horrible. Sending you warm virtual hugs from the Orient to North Dakota! πŸ˜€

      I wish I could love it like I did when I was a kid but driving in the snow we get here is a huge pain. And thank you so much, hugs are the best I’m a hugger haha πŸ™‚
