12 Days of Book Blogmas (Day 7)


A Holiday Tradition…

Growing up my family had a few traditions such as we all got new pjs, socks and underwear for Christmas and we also got a huge orange and a red delicious apple.

Since moving away from home and starting my own family I have continued the new pjs, socks, undewear, the apple and orange. I have also added things such as we all get something new to wear on Christmas day (sweater, shirt etc), every year we pick out a new ornament for the tree, a new Christmaas picture book is bought as well as a new movie and christmas cd.

I think its fun to make traditions that are  your own and things you can pass done to your children.

What are some of your traditions?

12 Days of Blogmas (Day 5)


Five Nicest Characters that will be getting everything they want this year!

The Nicest Characters in Literature for me are:

  1. Thomas from the Maze Runner. I just watched the movie and for me he risks it all to get out.
  2. Courtney Crumrin from the graphic novels The Night Things. She is this sweet girl who is different just trying to fit in.
  3. I know this is a picture book but I have to say The Little Engine that Could. The little engine deserves to be on the nice list according to Michael.
  4. Cole from the book Found in You
  5. Finally Zoe from Losing Logan.

On the Fourth Day of Book Blogmas

Four Naughty Characters that will be getting coal this year!

The Naughtiest Characters in Literature

This is another good prompt today. I had to think about this one for a bit but I ended up with these four Naughtiest Characters in books:

  1. Gideon Cross from the series Crossfire by Sylvia Day. I have a love/hate relationship with him
  2. Mr “M” from the series One Night by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I don’t know what it is about him but there is more to him then meets the eye.
  3. President Snow from the series Hunger Games. He is just aweful and should be on the top of the list.

I will need to come back and edit this because I can’t think of a fourth one. I know there is tons of bad boys but I just can’t think of one right now.
