Christmas Stocking Bookish Tag | blogmas day 12

Hey guys! Today I’m doing the Christmas Stocking Bookish Tag, invented by Kate @ Reading Through Infinity! I was tagged by the lovely Jenn – thank you so much for tagging me! 

I’m very excited to answer these questions! 


  • Link to the person who tagged you (me!)
  • Link to Kate, as she’d love to read your answers
  • Answer all 10 questions, choosing books for each theme
  • Tag five people to do this

So… let’s jump straight into it!

An Orange – which book is refreshing and vibrant, both inside and out?

I think that a book that fits right into this section is Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco! I absolutely love this series, and I highly recommend it. It’s so different to anything I’ve read before. 

A Bag of Chocolate Coins – which book have you recently bought that was expensive, but totally worth the high price?

Hmm I’m not really sure for this one, although I think I can do a purchase in the future – Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. Now, I haven’t bought this yet (at time of writing lol) but this book is £12.99 at the special edition at Waterstones buuuuut it means it’ll fit in with all my other copies in the series… so I’m totally getting it. 

A Bath Bomb – tell us about a book that had explosive action scenes.

Gonna have to go with Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian by Rick Riordan, the final battle scene is A+. 

A Pack of Playing Cards – which series won you over?

You all know this one… Harry Potter by JK Rowling…! 

A Candle – which character is a symbol of hope in their story?

I’m going to have to go with a character that gives me hope when I’m in a dark place – Steve Rogers from the MCU. I love this character to infinity! (Heh.)

Socks – is there a book that you think really encompasses all the distinctive tropes of its genre?

Literally all I can think about is Agatha Christie encompassing cosy crime. That is it. Hallowe’en Party is a good example! 

A Notebook – which author’s writing process do you find most interesting/inspiring?

I think Stephen King. He writes six pages a day, and that’s his minimum. He doesn’t write too much more. He’s matter-of-fact, and his writing style is so engaging. I think he’s just a really interesting, prolific writer, and a goal for me this Christmas is to finally read On Writing

A Fancy Pen – is there a book or a series that you’d change if you’d written it yourself?

Honestly, no. There are plenty of books/series I wish I’d written myself, but none that I would change! Every book is meant to be the way it is. 

A Small Bedside Clock – which book took you a long time to pick up but was worth it in the end?

Literally so many! My most recent is probably Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle which was incredible! You can read my review here

A Lump of Coal – you’re a little disappointed, but you look closer and realise there’s a seam running through the coal. You crack it open and sitting inside is a golden snitch. Tell us about a book that surprised you in some way!

Hmm, I think I’d have to say Dissolution by CJ Sansom, because I thought that I would enjoy it but I didn’t expect to be quite as blown away with it as I was. I absolutely loved it, and desperately want to read the rest of the series! 

So that’s my questions and answers! Here’s who I tag: 

I hope you guys enjoyed this tag, I really loved writing it! I know it’s quite long but I get carried away fairly often… 

Until tomorrow! ❤
