I’m not a huge Hallowe’en stan, but I will admit to loving some aspects of it. Mainly the Disney films, of course. This is a book tag filled with some of the best things about the spooky season, and I found it on Beacoup Books. It’s perfect for closing off your Hallowe’en blogging, and finding some fantastic books to read in the process.
CARVING PUMPKINS: What book would you carve up and light on fire?
There are a number of books I really didn’t like, but I think from this year I would opt for The Friend Zone by Abby Jiminez. It sounded like such a great premise, but there was unfortunately so much I didn’t enjoy.
TRICK OR TREAT: What character is a treat, what character is a trick?
A character who is for sure a treat to read is Angela Clarke from the I Heart series by Lindsey Kelk. Angela is one of my favourite characters, and a character I see myself in quite a lot.
As for a trick, the people who instantly came to mind were the Weasley twins. I can’t imagine too many more renowned pranksters – they even opened a wizarding joke shop when they left Hogwarts
CANDY CORN: What book is always sweet?
I love To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. It’s the most cosy and comforting book, with such sweet characters and the most loving main character. Lara Jean is by far the most Hufflepuff Muggle character in the world.
GHOSTS: What character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
There is only one ghost I would like to visit me and that ghost is Peeves. Peeves as a visitor would completely ruin your life, but the entertainment value would be totally worth it.
DRESSING UP IN COSTUME: What character would you want to be for a day?
I really would love to change places with Hermione Granger, but while she was still in Hogwarts. It’s the only time I could study any of the Hogwarts classes I really want to take. I have a feeling I would excel at Muggle Studies. Plus, you would never have to take another maths class ever again.
WIZARDS AND WITCHES: What is your favourite Harry Potter moment?
There are so many to pick from, but there is one stand out moment for me. It’s in Order of the Phoenix where Fred and George run Umbridge out of Hogwarts. One of my favourite quotes of theirs is when they tell Peeves to give her hell and Peeves listens to them.
BLOOD AND GORE: What book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?
The book that creeped me out the most is Room by Emma Donoghue. I felt really exposed when I finished reading it, like the world was watching me as I walked through the streets.
