Blog Hop: Holiday Reviews

book blogger hopThis week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Do you ever do a review post based on a holiday? For example review Christmas theme books in December.

Frequently!  Although it often turns into movie reviews for holidays–somehow I tend to tie my holidays to movies more than to books.  I usually try to do something Christmas-related for December, I posted about Mr. Smith Goes to Washington for the 4th of July, and I reviewed Jesus Christ Superstar on Good Friday.  Although I did miss Guy Fawkes Day for V for Vendetta.

Among my more unusual holiday posts was reviewing Casablanca on Pearl Harbor Day, and the time I shared an old Star Trek fanfiction piece about a very unfortunate redshirt for Friday the 13th.

Bloggers, do you do holiday-themed reviews?  Readers, do you like to read holiday books close to their related day?

  1. I dislike being tied by calendar dates so, no, not really! But I occasionally like tying in a review with an anniversary (e.g. a Lewis Carroll biog with the 150th anniversary of the Alice books, or a review of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ 200 years after its first publication). This year however I’m determined to review one of Dickens’ Christmas stories for Yuletide — mostly to satisfy the Reading Challenge I’m doing this year!

    I don’t read particular books during any holidays, but I enjoy reading reviews themed to holidays. It’s a clever idea and gives me ideas for books or movies I might like to watch at any time.
