My plan was to do a post about my favorite YA books that are holiday/Christmas themed. I should’ve taken a good long hard look at my shelves because I only have one? How? What? 🙃
So basically this post is a bust in the original idea department, so I’m sitting here in the dark drinking wine and winging this.
It’s currently 1:53AM Christmas Eve, though I guess now it’s actually Christmas Day! Merry Christmas! I can’t wait to see my families reactions to their gifts I got them.
But let’s get back to the purpose (or lack of purpose) of this quick post!
I’m going to do –
The Bookish This or That Tag (no I’ve not been tagged by anyone – remember I’m winging this because my shelves have betrayed me)
Audiobook or Textbook
Textbook? It’s not school… More often then not I read a physical copy. But I’m not opposed to audiobooks!
Paperback or Hardback
Paperback for reading, but hardcover for my shelves 🙈 that one was easy. Paperbacks are usually smaller, lighter and just overall easier to handle when reading. Whereas some of my hardcovers are behemoths that give me a workout just by lifting them!
Fiction or Non-Fiction
Fiction hands down. Next.
Harry Potter or Twilight
How do you compare them? Both. I’ll admit that I was a Twilight fan. I use “was” because it’s been A LONG TIME since I read the books or watched the movies, but I’ll forever embrace that period of my life when I was obsessed with Twilight. As for Harry Potter I will always love it.
Bookshop or Online
Convenience? Online. But it’s always fun to walk into a bookstore…search everywhere on the YA shelves only to not find the book and then go to customer service to ask them if it’s actually in store even if it says it is online. And then they go and look and either A. They find it and I’m just blind or B. The book is in multiple locations throughout the store EXCEPT FOR IN THE YA SECTION.
Standalone or Trilogy
Ugh I’m conflicted on this. If it’s a contemporary, then standalone (usually). For fantasy and/or science fiction then I definitely want more than one.
Sweet and Short or Heavy and Long
Again, contemporaries I prefer sweet and short, but for fantasy and/or science fiction I prefer heavy and long. But a short book is always a good thing if I just want to breeze through something really quickly.
Hot Chocolate or Coffee
COFFEE. Every day. (I’m not opposed to hot coco with milk and whipped cream though – especially this time of year.)
PHEW. That was fun and probably the easiest tag/questions post I’ve ever done. Usually I do these kinds of posts thinking they’ll be easy, quick and let me tell you, they never are!
With that being said, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a wonder holiday season! I *probably* won’t be posting again until after the New Year, with my Most Anticipated 2019 Books – so I’ll leave you with HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MAY 2019 BE AWESOME! ❤️
