For the month of December I’m scheduled a quick post, early each day, that simply highlights a book based on a prompt, a countdown, if you will to 2021.  Below is a list of the prompts I will be using, one for each day.  This is a fun way to highlight some books for the month of December and, given the time of year, some of the prompts are Christmas inspired.  Feel free to join in.  Note: I don’t want to over burden people and fill up readers  I simply wanted to use the final month of the year to shine the spotlight on some books (all the books highlighted will be linked to Goodreads for information purposes).

Prompts:

  1. Snow – a book set in a cold or wintry climate
  2. Shopping – the last book added to your wishlist
  3. Wrapping paper – a lovely cover
  4. Presents – a book you enjoyed more than you expected to
  5. Chocolates – a book that was simply delicious
  6. Christmas stocking – stocking fillers – a novella or short story
  7. Christmas Tree –  traditional style, winter read
  8. Baubles – these add some colour, a very colourful and striking cover
  9. Fairy Lights – a book of the fae
  10. Under the Tree – a book you forgot you owned
  11. Mistletoe – a little bit of romance
  12. Holly and Ivy – a book with great world building
  13. Feast – a book that was magnificent
  14. Christmas pudding – if you could squeeze in just one more book for 2020
  15. Mince pies –  a little sweet something
  16. Turkey Dinner– a book that is almost too big to face
  17. Glitter – A book that you simply have to have
  18. Christmas Cards – a book with a hidden message
  19. Christmas Carols – a book with musicians, song or instruments
  20. Eggnog – a book that was out of your comfort zone
  21. Santa’s Snack – a book that was a ‘light read’ between heavier books
  22. Reindeers – a book with memorable critters
  23. Sleigh bells – a series that you want to ring out the praise for
  24. Christmas Eve – One of your most anticipated books for 2021
  25. Christmas Day – choose one from the wishlist
  26. Boxing Day – feeling bloated, a palate cleanser
  27. Christmas Crackers – Ended with a bang
  28. Candlelight – a book that kept you up into the early hours
  29. Christmas Cactus – A seasonal read
  30. Family and Friends – a book with great characters
  31. Bottle of Bubbly – Recap

    This is a great idea. And I love the holiday focus. Makes me want to find some books that match the prompts! 🙂

    Gosh Lynn, you’ve done it again and come up with a great idea! This would also make a really good Instagram challenge😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes it would. And nice quick and easy. I need to start using Instagram a bit more.

  3. Prachi

    Such a great idea! I’ll be looking forward to reading your picks for all the prompts☺️

  4. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    This is clever! I have a lot of catch up reviews to do though 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I have a lot of catch up books to read!! The problem is there’s always one element that suffer, if I do a lot of blogging I’m not doing much reading, if I do a lot of reading I’m getting behind with reviews and blogging – aaaaaahhhhhhhh.
      Lynn 😀

    Looks like it’s going to be a busy month on your blog 🙂 Am looking forward to seeing what you’ve chosen for each of these prompts.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I wanted to do a countdown – not sure if that’ because I have quite literally had enough of 2020 or not!
      Lynn 😀

    Oh this is a really fun idea, Lynn! Maybe I can figure out how to do this on instagram… 🙂

  7. imyril @ There's Always Room For One More

    Oh this is magnificent – well played! I will give it a go (now to decide if it’s a blog post or an instagram pic!)

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think Instagram would work really well for this – I simply have to get better about using it.
