Welcome back to Alexis from I'M MAD FOR BOOKS, LUV and mine monthly book tag.
Every month we thought it would be fun to come up with a theme and to go along with that chosen theme, a tag. However it wouldn't be just your average tag, the questions would relate to books which in the end will also relate back to our theme for that month. So I guess you could call it a book tag.

We welcome anyone to join. If you do participate, we ask that you notify one of us via My Twitter or Alexis's Twitter, or by commenting on either of our posts with the link to how you did this book tag. In doing so it allows us to add the link to your book tag to that months book tag post on our blogs. We also ask that you somehow link back to us as well.
This Months theme is:
End of the Year
1. What are your top 5 favourite reads this year?
*Air Awakens by Elise Kova
*Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
*Fire Falling by Elise Kova
*The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
*A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
2. What books best remind you of the holidays?
This maybe a little odd to say since the title is a little morbid… however a book that had me thinking of the holidays was “It’s a Wonderful Death” by Sarah J. Schmitt.
3. What are two favourite quotes from books you read this year?
“I want a place you hardly dare to even whisper. I want the bravery to not only read, but to do. I want a man, not a library boy. A man who is tall and witty and knows more about the world than you would ever dare dream.”
― Elise Kova, Air Awakens
“Books are more real when you read them outside.”
― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver
4. Which book would you want or got for Christmas?
I REALLLYYY want the Harry Potter box set, technically that’s more than one book, but I really do want it.
5. Which two books that were released this year have you not read?
The two books that I still need to read are Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard & Go Set a Watchmen by Harper Lee
6. What 5 fictional characters would you want at your New Year Eve’s party?
*Baldair from the Air Awakens series by Elise Kova
*Frosty & Ali from the White Rabbit Chronicles series by Gena Showalter
*Morpheus from the Splintered Series
*Lucien & Rhysand from A Court of Thorns & Roses by Sarah J. Maas
7. Which book did you read this year and didn’t particularly care for it?
The book that I read this year that I didn’t particularly like was My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
8. Who is a “Grinch-y” character you couldn’t help but love?
Okay, I definitely feel like Aldrik from Air Awakens by Elise Kova could be considered a “Grinch-y” character because of the way he is, however it doesn’t make me love him any less. He will forever be my lovely Aldrik.
9. What book has the Christmas feeling to it (cover, or the novel itself)?
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking has a wonderful snowy cover and to me, since I live in Canada, it’s definitely not Christmas without snow. Even if Frostfires story has nothing to do with Christmas
10. What was your reading goal this year and were you successful?
