Halloween Book Tag (Take 2)

Hello all!! Halloween is coming up (whooooo) so now is the perfect time to do this tag! And yes, I did this already, but that was two years ago now, so I’m doing it again- that’s allowed right? 😉


Thank you so much to Emily @Embuhleeliest, Sam @ Rivermoose Reads and Eve Messenger for tagging me to do this- you guys are the best!

  1. Carving pumpkins- what book would you carve up and light on fire?

I love this question so much!! I’m gonna pick something different from usual to bitch about and say Bronze Horseman cos I’ve not ranted about how gross I find that book in a while. It’s a straight up abusive relationship, dressed up as something romantic, with a useless main character that’s impossible to root for. There are few books I say “I don’t get it” over, but seriously I *do not* get why this book is popular.


  1. Trick or treat- what character is a trick, what character is a treat?

I’m cheating with this question, cos I’m going with Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows and I feel like he’s the trick *and* the treat!

trick or trear

  1. Candy corn- what book is always sweet?

Serafina and the Black Cloak- honestly this book is candy from Halloween, Christmas and New Year all rolled into one levels of cute! If I had an aww-o-meter while reading this, I’d have broken it.

  1. Ghosts- what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?

Hehe I had to resist the urge to just say a particular character we all know and love (*ahem Sirius Black*) cos I’ve said that before. So I’m going to go with Noah from Raven Boys (which is not a spoiler, since he’s dead at the start of the book). But he’d make a great friend.


(Also, I looked up some ghost gifs for this and most of them are freaky- so I’m considering taking back my answer and saying no one)

  1. Dressing up in costume- what character would you want to be for a day?

Again, I already gave my perfect answer last time I did this (Smaug for anyone who’s interested) *sighs*. So since I am robbed of that choice, I’m just gonna go straight up Nazgul, cos you know, why not? (To be honest, I now have some more sensible answers, but since this was the first answer that popped into my weird, weird brain, I’m sticking with it)


  1. Wizards and witches- what is your favorite Harry Potter moment?

Oh man this is so tough!! Since I’m not using the same answers as last time, I’m gonna say when Harry saves Sirius in Prisoner of Azkaban, the opening the Goblet of Fire and when we find out Snape’s true motivations in Deathly Hallows (yeahhh no way am I picking just one man!)


  1. Blood and gore- what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?

Easily Turn of the Screw– I had to read that one quiet night in Uni when no one else was around… Let’s just say it made me pretty jumpy!

That’s all for now- I tag:

Zuky, Nel, Aislynn, Marianna Reads, Reading in the Wings, Naty and Crafty Scribbles

    hehehe I’m so tempted to do this purely for that first questions alone.

    Great answers most of which I definitely agree with. Serafina and the Black Coat is just sooo sweet. I need to read the next book in that series asap. Also feel like I really should read Turn of the Screw (although there is a strong possibility I already have and just don’t remember doing it)

      hehehe thank you!! ❤ I know- I love him!! hehehe the Nazgul are the evil ring wraiths in Lord of the Rings- I really don't actually want to be one, but since I'd already said Smaug in a previous year, my brain just went "well I may as well be a Nazgul…" which is a ridiculous answer, but I stuck with it anyway 😉
