The 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

Saw The 12 Days of Christmas  Book Tag over at Hamlette's blog the other day, and I think it's one merry way to celebrate Christmas!


#1 Use a different movie for each prompt 
#2 Add photos and/or explanations of how your choices fit the prompts 
#3 Tag a few friends to play along

Let's play!!

1. A Partridge in a Pear Tree - book that involves agriculture:

2. Turtle Doves - book about a long-lasting relationship:
The Mysterious Affair at Styles

The book isn't about relationship, but thinking about long-lasting one... there aren't many relationships which are as strong and long-lasting as Hercule Poirot's and Captain Hastings, right? 😉

3. French Hens - book that takes place in France:
The Belly of Paris... the title says it all, right?

4. Calling Birds - book where people talk on the phone:
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

The phone call is one of the essential factors in this case.

5. Golden Rings - book with multiple romance:
Sense and Sensibility... ❤❤

6. Geese A-Laying - book with a birth or that features babies:
Dombey and Son

7. Swans A-Swimming - book where someone goes swimming:
The Pearl

It's not really a leisure swimming, but plunging into the water, nonetheless, right? 😆

8. Maids A-Milking - book with cows:
The Earth

"The cow had bolted and was galloping through a patch of lucerne, followed by the girl, who was desperately trying to hold her back."

9. Ladies Dancing - book with a dance scene:
War and Peace

How could one ever forget Natasha's dancing scene??

10. Lords A-Leaping - book about athletes:
The Great Gatsby

Jordan, the female golfer

11. Pipes Piping - book with someone playing a musical instrument:
The Song of the Lark... before becoming an opera singer, Thea is studying to be a great piano player

12. Drummers Drumming - book with characters in the military:
One Hundred Years of Solitude... how will one ever forget Colonel Aureliano Buendia and his entourage?!

Want to share the fun? Consider yourself tagged!


  1. No tag, thank you, but I enjoyed reading yours - and watching the pictures !

  2. Wow, I'm impressed by your ability to remember details about the plots of some of these books.

    1. Actually I had to browse through my reviews list, and by doing so, some of the memorable details came back to me. But the phone popped in my head because of the cover! 😋

  3. Nice answers! I haven't read many of these, but several are on my TBR list :-)

    1. Thanks for inventing it, Hamlette, it's fun! 😊
