2023 Christmas Songs Book Tag

Inspired by ThatArtsyReaderGirl!

I’m choosing these from my 2023 reads!

  1. “All I Want for Christmas Is You”: Favorite bookish couple.
    Max and Ava from Karen Heenan’s Coming Together (final installment of her 1930s “Sisters” trilogy). They are so hot and the slow burn over the previous two books just made this one even better.
  2. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”: Name a book where a character is away from home (school, vacation, etc.).
    Stateless by Elizabeth Wein! Stella North is participating in an air race through Europe AND she’s technically a displaced person anyway. Such a fabulous book.
  3. “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”: Name your favorite “little” book (children’s book, short story, novella, etc.).
    I’m going with élégie here. Yes, I wrote it, but it’s what best fits this category.
  4. “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”: What book(s) do you hope Santa brings you this year?
    I honestly don’t know how to answer this one!
  5. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”: Which book turned your nose red (made you cry)?
    Spare (Prince Harry) did more than make me cry. It sent me into an overwhelming sadness for DAYS.
  6. “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”: Your favorite book/kind of book to read during the holidays.
    This year I got festive re-reading I Am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley. I love Flavia de Luce and this is one of my faves from the series.
  7. “We Three Kings”: Your favorite trilogy/book from a trilogy (or feel free to fudge it and pick a book from a series).
    The aforementioned sisters trilogy (Coming Apart/Coming Closer/Coming Together) by Karen Heenan. Granted, I’ve only read the latest one in 2023 but we’re going to ignore what I said at the start of this post.
  8. “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”: A character you would love to be snowed in with.
    Tuppence Beresford of The Secret Adversary and its sequels.
  9. “Last Christmas”: A book that seriously let you down.
    I think we’ll go with Ship Wrecked, since it’s my DNF of the year.
  10. “White Christmas”: An upcoming release you’re dreaming about.
    American Wings by Sherri L Smith and Elizabeth Wein!

Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.
