Anticipation – The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating.

Carve the Mark (Untitled Duology, #1)Daughter of the Pirate KingEmpress of a Thousand SkiesCaraval

I’m definitely the most excited for these 4 books “Carve The Mark” and “Caraval” both come out in January and “Daughter of the Pirate King” and “Empress of a Thousand Skies” come out in February.

I’m on a sci-fi kick so I want all of the YA sci-fi I can get, I also have been dying for an actual YA pirate book, and “Caraval” is super hyped and has tons of great reviews so I want to see what that’s all about.

Christmas Songs & Carols – What book or author can you not help but sing it’s praises.


I would go with Jay Kristoff because since reading 4 of his books (all 5 star ratings except “Gemina” which got 4) this year I can’t help but recommend them to everyone and sing his praises! If you love brutal, fast-paced, and great plot twists I’d recommend checking out his books.

Gingerbread Houses – What book or series has wonderful world building.

Okay well besides all of  Kristoff’s books that I just mentioned I’d have to say “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” by Laini Taylor has some fantastic world-building! I can’t wait to continue on with the series too.

A Christmas Carol – Favorite classic or one that you want to read.

I don’t read a lot of classics because I find it hard to get into the writing a lot of the time. My favorite classic is “The Hobbit” by JRR Tolkien though.

Christmas Sweets – What book would you love to receive for Christmas.

Of course there are LOADS of books I’d like to get for Christmas but they one I’m looking for the most is “The Night Circus” because tons of people love it and recommend it (Michelle included!) and I really need to read it.

Candles in the Window – What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling.

I don’t read a lot of books that are warm or fuzzy but this book ,while tragic at times, was absolutely magical and adorable.

Christmas Trees & Decorations – What are some of your favorite book covers.

Apparently I have a weakness for purple…..

Christmas Joy – What are some of your favorite things about Christmas.

Getting to spend time with family and friends first of all because that’s important of course! Then I’ll have to go with Michelle and say Christmas lights because they’re just so pretty, I love driving around and looking at Christmas lights. Lastly I’ll say gifts both giving and receiving I looooove Christmas gifts!

      Awesome! I don’t find too many other people who have read it let alone loved it. A lot of people I don’t think finish it or dislike it because the writing’s a bit more old fashioned and a little harder to get into. 🙂

        I also think those people may lack an appreciation for classic literature.

    I loved your answers! I’m so ready for Caraval to come out so I can devour it in one sitting 🙊 Those covers are really beautiful and both those books are actually on my TBR. I love that Minion picture, so cute 🎄

    I can’t wait for Caraval to come out either! And I need to check out both Daughter of the Pirate King and Empress of a Thousand Skies. I haven’t heard of those books, but the titles sound amazing and I definitely NEED to see what they are about! 😀
    I definitely have to read something by Jay Kristoff. His books sound very interesting and I can’t believe that I haven’t checked them out yet! (Probably going to start with Nevernight.)
    I’m going to join the people who recommend you The Night Circus and say that you definitely HAVE to read it! 😉
    I adore the cover fro And I Darken! It’s seriously beautiful!

      I know right? Glad to potentially help you add to your TBR, haha!
      I also would love to hear your thoughts on any of Kristoff’s books since there’s just tons of stuff to talk about with his books! So much content!
      Luckily I just got a copy of Night Circus for Christmas so hopefully I can get to it this coming month! 🙂

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone definitely has some of my favorite world building ever! The rest of the series is just as beautiful, especially as Taylor reveals more about the worlds! So glad you liked the first one 😀

      Awesome that definitely makes me more excited to read the rest of the trilogy which I really need to do but they’re both on my must read TBR for 2017. So soon! 🙂
