Ahem..I may be a little bit late for this but better late than never, right?!
So as you may have guessed I have finally found some time to do some of the Bookending Winter posts! Bookending Winter (@bookend_events) is an event put together by the awesome Clo (@eloisethewriter) and Sam (@Sammers65) which is Christmas and New Year related but you are not restricted to just this. You can post about anything you want as long as you use the logo of the event!
I was very chuffed when my fellow book bloggers Ruby (@Rubysbooks) and Amanda (@Devouring Books – Amanda) tagged me for this Bookending Winter tag. Here are both of their posts: Ruby’s post and Amanda’s post for you to have a look!
The rules of the Christmas Characters Tag which was hosted by Anthony (@Anthony) are the following:
