A Merry Fictional Blog Challenge

Dec 20, 2016

Hi friends! Things have been a little quiet around these parts since I've been stressing the eff out over Christmas shopping. It's okay, I finished all my holiday shopping over the weekend and now all I have to do is wrap them, guh. It's almost over though, since Christmas is right around the corner! This year just flew by, didn't it?

Katy from Oh So Geeky came up with a holiday blog challenge that I wanted to join in on, so here we are! Writing new blog posts while my life is crazy busy can be pretty stressful, so I definitely appreciate fun blog prompts like this. Without further ado, let's get to the questions:

Advent Calendar: Traditions you celebrate during December?

My husband and I have been picking out ornaments together for the past couple years, which is shaping into a pretty fun Christmas tradition

Carols: What's your favorite song(s)?

For as long as I can remember, my sister and I listened to the album When My Heart Finds Christmas by Harry Connick Jr. every single year in December. There's a song on there called "(It Must've Been Ol') Santa Claus" and it's the absolute best!

Coal: A naughty character you'd send coal to?

The first one that comes to mind is Draco Malfoy. I mean, sure he had a change of heart at the end of the series, but he was such a mean boy to Harry and the gang. Definitely deserves some coal in his stocking.

Fireplace: Favorite Christmas movie that melts your heart?

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm a sucker for Christmas movies! I love cheesy, romantic ones most of all...but my very favorite will always be A Christmas Story. It's my dad's favorite, so we watched it every year and I guess it just kind of grew on me.


Gingerbread: What's your favorite holiday snack?

Peppermint bark! For me, peppermint is everything at Christmastime.

Hot Cocoa: What's your favorite drink?


Peppermint hot cocoa! Peppermint and chocolate were meant to be together, nom nom nom.

Mistletoe: Character you'd like to meet under the mistletoe?


Well, if I weren't married and all, it'd be Warner from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I just love, love, love him.

Mittens: A cozy outfit that keeps you warm during winter?

I don't need to bundle up much during winter since Southern California is always pretty darn warm. I did just buy this super cute purple dragon onesie though, and it's quite cozy.

North Pole: If you could spend Christmas anywhere (even fictional), where would you go?

Oh, Hogwarts FOR SURE. So snowy and magical...plus, that would mean I'm a witch, and I'd be totally down for that.


Naughty: Three characters who'd make the Naughty List.

Draco Malfoy (of course), the Darkling from the Grisha series, and my beau Warner from the Shatter Me series.

Nice: Three characters who'd make the Nice List.

Simon from the Mortal Instruments series, Colin from An Abundance of Katherines, and Levi from Fangirl.

Presents: A book or movie on your wishlist?

If we could fast-forward to May for the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin, the third book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas, that would be great.

Rudolph: What's your favorite TV holiday special?


I'm not quite sure I have one! Unless A Year Without a Santa Claus counts. Snow Miser and Heat Miser always make me smile!


Santa: A character you'd love to exchange presents with? What would you get them?

Jess from New Girl. She's basically my patronus, and I think she'd devote a lot of time to finding me a perfect gift. I'd get her this super sweet unicorn lamp from Target that I've been lusting after for a while now=)

Scrooge: A villain you'd help see life in a different way?

Definitely this guy. Oh, Kilgrave. I know he was creepy and demented, but I was kinda pulling for him to turn out to be a good guy after all.


Snowflake: Something that makes you feel special.

My husband, every single day. He loves me so much that he's been putting up with my cheesy Christmas movies all month...he's the best, and I'm so thrilled to get to spend another Christmas with him.

Tree: What do you decorate your house with for the season?


We have a gorgeous purple tree (with pink lights!) up in a corner, and we have some little holiday knick-knacks scattered around and nutcrackers in front of the fireplace. We don't do much holiday decorating around here...we're just so lazy=P

Yuletide: The top 3 things in your life that make you the most happy?


Aside from my husband, family, and kitty (because those are a given, right?), I'd say Overwatch, macaroni & cheese, and Netflix.

BONUS: Ugly Christmas Sweater: Would you wear a sweater Molly Weasley made you or avoid it like the plague?

I would absolutely wear it. Molly Weasley is a queen and I would do anything for her.

Thanks again, Katy! If you want to join in on this blog challenge, you totally should. The more the merrier, right? Just check out Katy's original post about the prompt here, copy and paste the questions, and let me know if you join in the comments below because I'd love to read your answers!
