Rules:

Santa Clause
A Gift You Received or Want This Year

I’d love to receive this 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle. It combines my love for reading and puzzles into one!! How awesome is that!

Mrs. Clause
A Favorite Holiday Treat to Have Every Year

Grinch Juice!!!! My sister in law makes this punch and we call it Grinch juice. It’s green sherbet, pineapple juice, and ginger ale (I think that’s right….)

Ghost of Christmas Past
A Holiday Memory from Your Past

PASS. My brain is too sleep deprived so giving this one a pass lol

Buddy the Elf
“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.”
A Holiday Song You like to Sing Each Holiday Season

What song DON’T I like to sing lol!! I love Christmas music and sing it year round. I can never get enough. If I had to pick a favorite…..it’d probably be “Mary, did you know?”

Misfit Toys
An Unpopular Toy You Really Wanted to Get One Year

It’s not unpopular to other people but I’d love to go on the Walking Dead set tour. My family just doesn’t get why I like that show lol!!

Grinch
A Moment When Your Heart Grew Three Sizes

Anytime I hear about someone doing something for a person in need….It’s even better when they don’t have to film it or announce it to everyone to get the recognition.

Jack Frost
A Tradition You Like to Do Every Winter

Making s’mores on the fireplace. They’re just so delicious!!!

Hero Boy
A Moment You Believed in a Holiday Wish/Miracle

Check out my answer for the Grinch prompt ^

Cindy Lou Who
A Favorite Holiday Tradition

Every Christmas for the meal we do finger foods with chips and dips. It’s so much fun and we enjoy it so much more than the traditional Christmas meal. ((We eat the traditional food for Thanksgiving))

Frosty the Snowman
A Memory Involving Snow or A Memory You Would Like to Have Involving Snow

I live in Texas so we don’t get much snow, but I remember one year we actually got snow on Christmas morning. It was so beautiful and we all talked about it for years afterwards.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
A Holiday Activity You Like Doing

Looking at Christmas lights. I love seeing all the cool light decorations everyone puts up. Have you seen that show on TV called The Great Light Fight?! I can’t imagine how much their electric bills are lol!

Ebenezer Scrooge
“Bah, Humbug!”
A Favorite Holiday Saying or Quote

Literally anything from the movie Elf lol!!!! I’m obsessed with that show and watch it every year!

Memorable Titles That Start With “E”

Everything, Everything

I read a quote once by William Styron that said, “A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end.” this book did just that. This story did not disappoint.

Every Day (Every Day, #1)

This story was so unique and so different from anything else I’ve read before. I really enjoyed it and would definitely look into other books by this author.

Eleanor & Park

This book was absolutely adorable. I will say the ending could’ve been better but that’s just my opinion.

Books Starting With “E” On My TBR

Elite (Eagle Elite, #1)

I’ve been wanting to read this series forever it seems like. I’m hoping it will be like The Royals series by Erin Watt.

Escape to You (Montana Heat, #1)

This sounds like the perfect romantic suspense story!!! Plus it has a high rating on Goodreads so that gives me high hopes that I’ll enjoy it too!

Everless (Everless, #1)

I’m just obsessed with this cover. It’s so gorgeous!! Everyone on my Goodreads list has given this a 4 or 5 stars. Let’s hope I’m not the only one to hate it lol!!

Blogtober

The goal of this tag is to list books that are required to summon you. This tag was created by Bee over at BookishPisces . I was tagged by the lovely Lorryn at Reading Parental. You can check out her post here.


Getting Schooled (Getting Some, #1)

Two words: Garrett Daniels. This book far exceeded my expectations. If you like romance, I cannot recommend this enough.

High Country Bride (McKettricks, #1)

This is a historical romance that I read almost every single year. Linda Lael Miller has such a knack for writing great western/historical romances.

Reckless

I’m a sucker for a single dad whose amazing with his kids. If this is your thing too, I recommend trying this for sure!

The Deal (Off-Campus, #1)

YASSSS to this book! Ironically his name is Garrett too (just like the first book I mentioned). This is a hockey romance and it’s STEAMY!!!

Scoring Wilder

Scoring Wilder is a sports romance involving a coach/college student. It’ll knock your socks off, I promise!!

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

I saved the best for last. You guys know my love for this book, especially for the character Cassian. This book has just about everything you could need wrapped up into one amazing package.


I really tried to narrow this down to 5 books but I just couldn’t. I barely got this down to 6 lol!! Any of these books would summon me for sure!! These are my favorites that I could read OVER and OVER. What books would be required to summon you?! Let me know in the comments below or link me to your post!!

I’ve only read Reckless by this author but it left such a great impression on me. I can’t wait to read everything she’s ever written.

*Clicking each cover will take you to its Goodreads page.*

Memorable Titles That Start With “C”

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

Of course I had to mention my favorite book ever!!! I’ve raved about this book so much that I think you know how much I adore it. Pick it up. Read it. Love it. You’re welcome ❤

The Couple Next Door

I don’t always read thrillers but this one caught my eye. This was the debut novel by the author and it did not disappoint. I can’t wait to read her other books.

The Chief (Highland Guard, #1)

I love historical romances and this one was very entertaining. I enjoyed all the characters and the romance in this story. If you like historical romances, I recommend giving this series a try!

Books Starting With “C” On My TBR

The Chase

So….I was dying to read this book when I first heard about it. My problem is…I need to finish The Goal and something about that book is just throwing me off. I don’t know what it is….well, it may be because it’s a different setup than the other books in the series. I think I’m worried it won’t measure up.

Checkmate: This is War (Travis & Viola, #1) (Checkmate Duet, #1)

I really don’t like how all Kennedy Fox’s books are interconnected. I’ve been dying to read their Bishop Brothers series BUT everything is intertwined so I have to read this series first. Did I mention this series has 6 books!! YIKES!!

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

I still can’t believe I haven’t read this yet. I saw a spoiler for something that happens in this book so I’ve been putting it off to see if I can forget it…..well it’s not happening. I may as well just read it and accept that I was spoiled. Like I always am with these more popular series.

The Walking Dead Book Tag (Original)

Last year I created The Walking Dead book tag. I’m sure there were others floating around but I still wanted to come up with one on my own. I’m such a huge fan of this series! In fact, I’m currently re-watching for the third time (2015, 2016, and now). I just can’t get enough!!!

DISCLAIMER: If you are NOT caught up with The Walking Dead TV series…proceed with caution.  There are spoilers if you haven’t watched season 7.


Rick

A book with a strong leader.

The Chief (Highland Guard, #1)

Tor. Tormad MacLeod was your typical alpha male. Stubborn to the bone but willing to do anything for his clan and his wife. I loved the protectiveness of Tor. He was this beacon of strength for everyone around him.

Michonne

A book with a kick butt female.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

Rose. I loved the fierceness of Rose. This girl knew her role/purpose and always fought for Lissa. I can’t wait to read more in this series to see how her character grows and develops.

Carl

A book with a character who doesn’t always think things through.

Wait With Me

Kate. As far as Kate goes…..she and I had some issues. This girl lied about EVERYTHING. I felt like she lied about the simplest of things just so her life would be easier for that exact moment.

Glenn

A character who you miss the most.

Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)

Without spoiling anyone…….I’ll just say one of my favorites died in this one.

Maggie

A character who has suffered many losses and obstacles.

What He Doesn't Know (What He Doesn't Know Duet, #1)

Charlie. I felt so much for her throughout this book. I was right there with every emotion she was dealing with. Wanting to have the whole white picket fence life and then not having things turn out like you thought they would. As much as we plan how we would like our lives to be….sometimes life has other ideas for us.

Daryl

Name a book character you want on your side during the apocalypse.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Celaena. I mean…..the girl has some serious skills!!! I’d love to have her by my side during the apocalypse.

Carol

A character that has gone through a major transformation.

Arrogant Devil

Meredith Avery. Meredith went from such a lavish lifestyle to nothing but the clothes on her back. She was willing to do whatever it took to make it on her own. I admired her so much for her willpower and dedication.

Eugene

A character who would do anything to survive.

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)

Malich. UGH!! I couldn’t stand this character. He would literally do anything to protect himself. He has zero loyalties to anyone but himself.

Sasha

A character who would sacrifice him/her self to save someone else.

Getting Schooled (Getting Some, #1)

Garrett. Garrett Daniels is the complete package. The way Garrett cared for his students and football players……I can’t even. I could easily see him doing anything for those he loves/cares for.

Negan

Name your all-time favorite villain.

Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone, #1)

The Darkling. I loved his character. It’s so fun when a villain blurs the line between being misunderstood and just being an evil character.


**I originally posted this book tag back in 2017 but when I had blog issues, it wiped everything out. I know, it hurt me too when it happened.**

I hope you all enjoyed this original book tag!!! Please feel free to do this tag and leave your links in the comments below!!! I’d love to see your answers!!!

Witch
A Magical Character or Book.

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

I can’t say enough good things about this book. I swear I’m obsessed. I could just read it over and over. It has a little bit of everything all wrapped into one book. Definitely an all time favorite!

Werewolf
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.

The Couple Next Door

I’m not one to read scary/horror but I do enjoy a great thriller from time to time. This was the debut book for this author and it did not disappoint. I couldn’t put this book down!!! Such a great read!!

Frankenstein
A Book that Truly Shocked You.

Sweet

I was shocked by how awful this book was. I really don’t get how anyone could enjoy it BUT I do understand we all have different likes/dislikes. If you’re a fan, tell me what you loved about this one 🙂

The Devil
A Dark, Evil Character.

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1)

Once again, I don’t read horror but this book did have some 100% evil characters in it. Mr. X and Mr. O were just……*shivers*. I have no words for how evil/twisted these characters were.

Grim Reaper
A Character that Should Never Have Died.

*I won’t spoil you*

This is more of a movie that haunts me. I watched this when I was younger and I still can’t get over how creepy it was.

I don’t really read scary books so I’ll go with my previous answer for a movie that really scared me.

Skeleton

Mummy
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.

Amelia Bedelia  (Amelia Bedelia #1)

This series was my absolute favorite growing up. I couldn’t get enough of quirky Amelia Bedelia. I think everyone deserves a chance to read this series ❤
