Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you all have had a fun month of reading and celebrating in your own ways! I have read a few spooky books, baked some fun things, watched a couple good movies, and overall had a pretty good month! Like usual, of course it all went fast and I can NOT believe tomorrow is the first day of November. Almost time to start prepping for Christmas. Really?! Wow. All of that being said, I’m trying to savor fall for at least another couple of weeks. I absolutely love Christmas, but fall never seems to last long enough.
All right. So now for the reason we are all here. The tag of the week: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I found this one on the blog of Danielle at Welshie Books and Thoughts. She Googled for a Halloween tag and found this one so…mad props girl! Here we go!
1. Carving pumpkins- What book would you want to carve up and light on fire?
Oh my gosh, The Vampire Diaries. Awful! Let me say this though: For those who read the books first, they usually think the show is awful. Well, I’m in the party of those who watched the show first and think the books are cheesy as hell. So my recommendation…pick one or the other and stick to it!
2. Trick or Treat- What character is a trick, what character is a treat?
My favorite tricky characters have always been the Weasley twins! Talk about guys who work toward their goals and have a blast doing it!! They are funny, they are good people, they are great to their family, did I mention that they are hilarious?? I just love them!! Best tricks ever. As for treats, I’ll take my treat in the form of Jean-Claude from the Anita Blake novels by Laurell K. Hamilton. I feel like he’s always licking his lips and being seductive and I just love him. I love a good paranormal romance and this series is my perfect poison to get me addicted and keep me reading!!
3. Candy Corn- What book is always sweet?
Hmm, always sweet? The Hunger Games. I absolutely love The Hunger Games. At all times, and in all places, I love HG. Love the story, the characters, the message, all of it. No, the violence is certainly not sweet and the idea of rebellion and the twisted plot of people against government is not sweet, but again, the idea that ordinary people can make a difference and remake their own reality is such a powerful one.
4. Ghosts- What character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
This one is tough because there are many!! I think I would definitely like to visit Dumbledore! My favorite thing about old Dumbley is his wit and his knowledge. I would want to learn so much about the wizarding world, but yet I would also want to know about him, and yet I would just want to hear tales of his adventures and about plain old nonsense!! I think he just has stories to tell and things to say!
5. Dressing up in costume- What character would you want to be for a day?
I would love to wear any of the big gowns from when Claire was in France on Outlander! Even her English dresses are pretty too but in France, WOW. Emma Watson had a couple dresses I’d love to wear as well from Beauty and the Beast but overall, I’d way rather be Claire for the day and spend time with Jamie. YES. PLEASE. (!!!!)
6. Wizards and Witches- What is your favourite Harry Potter moment?
Oh my gosh, really? How can anyone pick a favorite HP moment?! McGonagall stepping up her game and defending Hogwarts? Harry defeating Voldemort?
7. Blood and Gore- What book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for a while?
The Shining and Doctor Sleep. Pretty much any scary/creepy/gory books I can’t read before sleep and books like these I just have to read really slowly so I don’t ingest them too quickly and then have nightmares!! I love reading them but my imagination goes wild!
