The Joy of Christmas Tag

I wasn’t tagged but saw this over on BookSayerReads and fell for it. I haven’t been tagged for anything Christmas related so now I’m taking stuff into my own hands. Let’s begin!


Anticipation

The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?

None of them have a cover yet, but Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss (not even an expected publication date yet) and the sixth book in Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas are definitely my most anticipated reads.

Christmas Songs/Carols

What book or author can you not help but sing its praises?
