The Christmas Movie Book Tag

As it’s getting closer to Christmas, my watch list has also started to get a little festive. I’ve even added A Christmas Price to my Netflix list. Yes, all three of them. I found (and slightly renamed) this fun and festive book tag on Two Book Teens BookTube channel, and it’s chock full of great films to guide you into Christmas week. Have you seen them all?


Elf- choose a book that puts you in the Christmas mood

I read Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol every single Christmas Eve without fail. I also watch the Muppets version of it every single Christmas Eve.

It’s a Wonderful Life- choose a book with a character who goes through some serious character development

She’ll be delighted I’ve said her, but I think Mia from The Princess Diaries goes through quite the growth during the 10 book series. Mia in book one would never be strong-willed enough to tell Lilly off for being a bit rude.

A Christmas Carol- choose a book/series with a character you didn’t like at first, but grew to love

There are very few characters who, when I start out the book not loving them, win me back over by the end of the book. I’m a rather character-driven reader, so if there’s a book with weak characters I tend to DNF it.

Home Alone- choose a book where the parents aren’t present and if they are, they aren’t such a good influence

I have to say Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell here, as I think it fits both of these prompts. Cath and Wren’s mother left the family when they were young, and they don’t really have any relationship with her.

Frosty the Snowman- Find a book with a snowy cover.

How Christmassy and cute is this cover?

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer- Choose a protagonist you couldn’t help but root for.

I fell in love with Angela Clarke from Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart series as soon as I met her. She is very similar to me in a couple of ways, and I would love if my career had taken the same projectory as hers.

Polar Express- Find a book where characters travel somewhere cold.

In The One Memory of Flora Banks, Flora travels to Svalbard, an island in the Arctic Circle. It barely gets colder than that, right?

How the Grinch Stole Christmas- Choose a villain you couldn’t help but love.

I do have to give this to Bellatrix Lestrange. She’s an absolute nightmare, don’t get me wrong, but she is just so exciting to read. You never knew what she would attempt next.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation- Choose a character with a goofy sense of humor.

I love Izzy O’Neill from Laura Steven’s amazing The Exact Opposite of Okay. She’s got such a fantastic sense of humour, and I know hanging around with Izzy would be an entertaining afternoon. If you can stay upbeat when you’re at the centre of a sex scandal, your sense of humour will get you through anything.

Lifetime/Hallmark movie- Choose a book with the cheesiest romance.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before might be super cheesy, but it has one of the best romances I’ve seen in such a long time.
