It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was introducing you to November’s Reading Challenge, it’s now time to look ahead to December. This month’s Reading Challenge is Festive Reads! This is a very fitting reading prompt with Christmas just around the corner, if I’m honest I don’t think I’ve read that many festive related books. It’s one genre that I’m too keen on if I’m honest.
It’s great to be apart of this community and it’s great chatting with everyone on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! Right, let’s get on with December’s Reading Challenge.
If you missed my Introduction to: Blogger Book Nook you should definitely check that post out here, before reading December’s Reading Challenge! I don’t want to fill this post up with too much of that as it’s all there for you to enjoy. For each Reading Challenge, Abbey and Tabitha come up with five questions for us to answer in relation to the prompt.
1. Do you have an all-time favourite Christmas book? If so, what is it?
I think I’ve only read one or two festive books, so here I would have to say The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher. I loved this book, even though it’s for children, I was able to take an interest in it. He’s such a great writer.
2. Are there any books from your childhood that you associate with Christmas time?
There’s definitely a variety of books that I grew up reading around Christmas, I don’t remember them all but one that stands out the most is Spot’s First Christmas. Spot was bar far my favourite character growing up, I swear I read every book about him! Mog’s Christmas was also a great one to read.
3. Which book are you hoping to find in your stocking this year?
I would love to receive every book on my wishlist! But I know this isn’t guaranteed, ever since I was little, we would always receive one book at Christmas. The type of book has changed over the years, including annuals, Guinness World Records and Assassin’s Creed. For this year I have included How to Build a Car by Adrian Newey, the Chief Technical Officer at Red Bull Racing. I have my fingers crossed!
4. Have you ever received a book at Christmas that you still have on your book shelf unread?
I think most of my bookshelf counts here! I am really bad at picking up books and just never reading them. Unfortunately, I just don’t get the time to relax with a book, fingers crossed I can change this for 2018 and read a little more. I’ve got all kinds of series including Harry Potter, True Blood and Percy Jackson.
5. Where is your favourite place to curl up with a book in the wintry weather?
This would have to be my bed, I love snuggling up in the duvet with a book, especially with a hot chocolate! It’s always so relaxing here, I pull the curtains and then illuminate the room with just the fairy lights.
I’m afraid this month there won’t be a book review to go alongside this month’s Reading Challenge. I’m been swamped this month and with two other book reviews this week, I thought it would be best not too! I will be ending this post here if you want to take part yourself head over to the Facebook page. We’re all really friendly and welcoming.
I hope you have enjoyed this post! What festive themed book will you be reading this month to get you into the Christmas spirit? Let me know in the comments!
