In the lead up to Christmas, the Thursday Tag posts have become a little more frequent. Each week leading up to Christmas Eve, Thursdays are going to be a festive occasion. This week’s tag was borrowed from Stephanie, and it’s the last one before Christmas Day, on Sunday. Let’s go out on a high.
What fictional character do you want Santa to leave under your Christmas tree?
The three ladies from the Spinster Club. I honestly believe we would be really good friends in real life.
What character do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?
Is it bad that I can’t honestly think of a single book character I’d want to meet under the mistletoe? Maybe I’m growing more cynical than I thought I was.
You write your Christmas list for Santa, what are the top 5 books on it?
I’m going to list five books that currently reside on my Amazon wishlist:
- Needlework by Deirdre Sullivan
- Trouble by Non Pratt
- Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan by Ruth Gilligan
- Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit
- I’ll Be Home for Christmas by various YA authors
It’s secret Santa at Hogwarts, what do you most want to receive?
A time turner. Had a late night and need a little nap to be in form for college/work? Not a problem anymore.
You get to the spend the day with the characters and movie adaptation actors from one fandom, what do you pick?
There’s no question – Harry Potter. I love both adaptations, so a day with them would be like a dream come true. It would also be fantastic to include the cast of Fantastic Beasts, too.
What fictional animal would you like to replace Rudolph and be able to meet on your roof?
A Hippogriff. Such beautiful creatures, and really handy to get around for Christmas if the roads are bad and you can’t drive.
You invite 10 fictional characters to your new years eve party, who do you pick?
Amber, Evie and Lottie from the Spinster Club trilogy.
Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Luna and Neville from the Harry Potter series.
Tracey Beaker from the eponymous series by Jacqueline Wilson.
What character would make a good Santa? (Doesn’t have to be appearance, personality counts too)
I think Molly Weasley would be perfect here. She’s very jolly, warm, caring, and she seems like she is incredibly giving, too.
