What is the one book you still want to read before Christmas?

What is one book on your Christmas list?

Volumes 3 and 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire, and I hope I dropped enough hints!

What advice would you give to a new blogger?

I would advise them to follow those who really interest them and leave comments. But also to remain true to themselves, and to post often. And one other thing – enjoy it!

Puppies or kittens?

Puppies – I don’t trust cats!

What is your favourite Christmas movie?

It has to be Home Alone. I took my youngest to see it when he was 7 and we both really enjoyed it.

  1. Elizabeth, many thanks for your kind nomination! I love all your bookish questions and my mind is already full of ideas! I will try and post something in the new year!

    I loved learning a bit about yourself. Hamnet has been on my radar and I’m still trying to work out whether to read it or not! Perhaps you can let me know what you think of the book! Great advice to new bloggers … always make sure you enjoy it and comments are key to forming true friendships! Home Alone is a great Xmas film, although the rest were never quite up to scratch. I still laugh in the same places many after many viewings! A classic!

    Hope you have a lovely start of Christmas week! 🎄
