Blog Tour Stop - The Twleve Dates of Christmas by Lisa Dickenson

Today I am SUPER EXCITED to share with you my Christmas Q&A with Lisa Dickenson, author extraordinaire.

So here we go!

What drink says Christmas for you?

Lisa:  Baileeeyyyyyyys – it’s the best best best and I would like some now, please.
 
Trish:  I'm a Baileys girl! But traditionally, it's always been eggnog (non - alcoholic).
 
Q: What's your most treasures Christmas gift you ever received?
 
Lisa:  That’s a hard one… Does the engagement ring I got a week before Christmas in 2010 count? Yes, yes it does!
 
Trish:  The flowered blanket my Mum crocheted and gave me the last Xmas before she passed. It's gorgeous and I love it!
 
Q: What's your fave festive song?
 
Lisa:  So many!  I love Last Christmas by Wham for it’s wonderful cheese-factor.
 
Trish: O Holy Night sung by Reba McEntire. Just beautiful and gives me goosebumps.
 
Q: What’s your fave movie to watch on Christmas Eve?
 
Lisa: It's A Wonderful Life - just a perfect film to curl up with the night before Christmas...
 
Trish: A Charlie Brown Christmas. Have watched it every year since I was tiny and it isn't Christmas without it!
 
Q:  What Christmas book do you wish you’d written?
 
Lisa:  A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – to me, this is the ultimate Christmas story.
 
Trish: The Twelve Dates of Christmas! Seriously, it's so funny and festive and cute! I adore it!!
 
Q:  How do you like your Christmas jumpers?
 
Lisa:  As tacky and 3D and garishly-coloured as possible, preferably with advent calendar windows sewn in and bells dangling off the arms.
 
Trish: On someone else... I love when other people where them but it's not something I'll ever wear! I'll wear Christmas socks and even my Muppets Merry Kissmas undies, but not ever a Christmas jumper! Bah Humbug!!
 

That was so much fun! Thanks so much, Lisa! The Twelve Dates of Christmas is out in PAPERBACK on 22nd October from Little Brown and I urge you to buy it! It's brilliant!!

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND 
Born In The Bed You Were Made by Brooklyn James

Children's/YA Book: We Are Young by Cat Clarke

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
