Twelve(ish?) Days ~ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

www.dgbookblog.com:happy.2018

Did you know that the Twelve Days of Christmas officially start on Christmas Day and run until January 5th? Well, I did not and actually figured it out when I was going to do an epic wrap up of 2017 starting the twelve days before Christmas. You see, I have quite a few things that I wanted to share and cross off my ‘to-do’ list. It’s quite embarrassing really, but I have numerous lingering book reviews, tags, and random thoughts that have been staring at me from that damn ‘draft’ folder, just begging for some love and attention.

I wasn’t 100% sure if the ‘twelve days’ included Christmas Day or not, looked it up, and to my pleasant surprise, the Twelve Days of Christmas actually start on Christmas Day! However, I did not… Ha! Even the best laid plans go awry, BUT LOOK, I’ve still made my date to at least get one post in (with the Christmas photos that I took) and celebrate the new year!

… And speaking of resolutions, can anyone say quit overanalyzing everything and follow through? Yes, I’m working on it!

The ‘Would You Rather’ Book Tag! Bookmark Your Thoughts tagged me eons ago (sorry for the delay!) in a fun ‘booknerd’ version of the popular game…”Would You Rather”! It’s been a wonderful year of meeting new bloggers and making friends in the book community for me. Although I’m terrible at keeping up with tags, they really are a great way to get to know everyone a little bit better! This is just a short and sweet (and painless) tag for me to participate in, and you should definitely jump on over and check out Bookmark Your Thoughts if you haven’t. I really enjoy following their fun blog, and I appreciate them thinking of me!

So without further ado…


Would you rather…

HAVE UNLIMITED MONEY FOR EBOOKS, OR A 5,000 DOLLAR B&N GIFT CARD?

Well, I hate to say it, but I would prefer the unlimited money for E-books. I really enjoy having physical books in hand. I love deciding which bookmark will best express my enjoyment in reading a particular book, and the flipping of the pages is almost therapeutic to me. There is also nothing better than the smell of a book! However, I guess I am truly getting old, because I really need the bigger font and backlighting of reading on electronically. It’s so sad!


Would you rather…

 MEET ANY DECEASED POET OR J.K. ROWLING?

I would pick J.K. Rowling. I am fascinated by what goes in author’s minds to inspire them to write what they do. I think that since I have a harder time appreciating fantasy (although I love this series!), meeting her could make a difference and open up my mind more.


Would you rather…

 WRITE THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS BOOK OR VISIT THE WORLD OF YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK FOR ONE DAY?

I would definitely prefer to visit the world of a favorite book for a day – less pressure! =D


Would you rather…

 CHOOSE ______ OR ______ ?

(INSERT CHARACTERS FROM YOUR FAVORITE FICTIONAL LOVE TRIANGLE.)

Well, this one is actually easy at the moment, since one of new favs has one! In Drive by Kate Stewart, Stella has to choose between Reid and Nate. They are both awesome in completely different ways, but I am definitely Team Reid!


Would you rather…

 EXPERIENCE HOGWARTS IN A VERY REALISTIC AND ACCURATE VIRTUAL REALITY, OR TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD FOR A YEAR, AT NO COST.

 Yes, please! Traveling around the world for a year at no cost definitely wins out here!

I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and cheers to a fantastic 2018!
