The Mid-Autumn Festival Tag!

Hello all! I’m having a bit of a chill Sunday and thought it might be fun to do a quick tag 😀

orangutan tag 2

I was tagged by the wonderful Chitra @Books and Strips– really recommend you check her out!

REUNION OF FAMILY

NAME A BOOK WITH FAMILY GOALS

raven boys

Gosh I’m tempted already to just go with Chitra’s answer of the Weasley family, but to be different (and cos it feels appropriate for this time of year) I’m gonna go with Blue’s family in Raven Boys

FULL MOON

NAME A BOOK WITH A WEREWOLF

city of bones new

I really don’t read that many books with werewolves, and, again, to avoid being HP centric for all my answers, I’m going with The Mortal Instruments series- especially cos I rarely bring it up for positive reasons.

MOONCAKES

NAME A KIND OF FOOD IN A BOOK THAT YOU WISH WAS REAL

 

 

Okay, now I really have to go Harry Potter all the way. Not just the obvious ones like Butterbeer and Pumpkin Pasties, I would love if all the food in that series was real. I love the sound of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavoured Beans, Fizzing Whizzbees, Chocolate Frogs… are you sensing a theme 😉 (fortunately you can get very similar things in the real world now)

RABBIT

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE CREATURE FROM A BOOK

 

 

Ooh good question! That’s got to be a Daemon from Northern Lights– because I WANT ONE! Mine would be an ocelot… bookish dreams *sigh*

CHANGE

A CHARACTER THAT MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE PLOT SINCE HE/SHE DID SOMETHING TOO MANY TIMES

the young elites

I’m going with Adelina from The Young Elites– but I can’t say any of the ways she does this cos of *spoilers*

LANTERNS

NAME A TOY OR GAME IN A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED TO READ ABOUT

 

 

That’s gotta be Thud! from Discworld. And I’ve actually played a real version- it’s so fun!!

AUTUMN

NAME A BOOK WHICH YOU FEEL IS THE BEST TO READ IN AUTUMN

hazel wood

I think a book like Hazel Wood is perfect for this season- it’s slightly spooky, has a fairy tale feel and is atmospheric to boot!

FESTIVAL

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE FESTIVAL IN A BOOK

court of frost and starlight

While I wasn’t crazy about this book, I did like the way Winter Solstice in the Night Court was described. Actually all the festivals described in this series are so lush and evocative- I just wish they were real!

That’s all for now- I tag:

Kelly @Another Book in the Wall, Geronimo Reads, Katie @Never Not Reading, Embuhhlee Liest, Sam @Modern Witch’s Bookshelf, Meltotheany, Kristin Kraves Books, Dany@Perspective of a Writer, Sam @Rivermoose Reads, Bookmark Your Thoughts, Sophie @Blame Chocolate and Paperback and Flick Chick

And anyone else that wants to do it! What’s your favourite festival in a book? Let me know in the comments!

Fall Activities Book Tag

I am so so sorry that I have been awol the last few days- I haven’t been responding to comments or posting because my computer, aka THE MAD HATTER, is dying. The temperamental bugger is on its last legs- so I’m a bit caught up with removing as much stuff from it as possible and praying that this won’t be the last time it turns on!

Okay- now that I’ve got my excuses out the way, let’s talk about something more cheery: how much I *love* autumn! (aka Fall) I do adore the changing of seasons and there are so many exciting things about Autumn that make it super special. I absolutely love this tag, cos I get to talk about all those cool things- so thank you so much to the awesome creator of this tag, Dreaming Through Literature, for tagging me to do this! It looks awesome!!

Apple Picking

A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.

Ooh there are so many!

tbr-for-post

Corn Maze

A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.

Throne_of_Glass_UK

Okay- I know there are a lot of mixed reactions to this series- but it’s such fun to get lost in!

Haunted Houses

A book that scared you silly.

 I am so easily scared, it’s ridiculous. You’ll probably hear this all through October but I don’t really read many scary books. That’s why I was easily freaked out by Breathe (yes I know it’s a children’s book).

Pumpkin Patch

The latest book you picked up (purchased).

Okay, this is a little embarrassing after my massive haul *and* the bookaholics tag– but I may have bought Raven King yesterday… Whoops! Shout out goes to Jill- cos I got this with the amazon gift voucher I won from her!

Scenic Drives

A book that is lyrically beautiful.

 daughter of smoke and bone

Pumpkin Carving

A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.

 as i lay dying

Ughh this book is the worst!

Drinking Apple Cider

A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.

Easily Isla and the Happily Ever After– I need more books like this in my life.

Jumping in a Leaf Pile

A book that reminds you of your childhood.

Harry_Potter_and_the_Philosopher's_Stone_Book_Cover

Okay I’m not the first and I certainly won’t be the last to give this answer!

Scary Movie Night

Your favourite spooky read.

Okay *see above* about my fear of scary books- but I love Turn of the Screw, even if it does freak me out!

turn of the screw 2

Bonus! Costume Party

A book with an eclectic cast of characters.

Okay, for a change I’m not going to answer with Game of Thrones– how about Falling Kingdoms instead.
