Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag (or post in general other than an unboxing) since the norm has now become me being overwhelmed with the amount of school work I have, but I’m here today with the Spooky Scary Book Tag which I’m pretty sure I haven’t done yet. Last year I did a post with a collection of Halloween related book tags!
I found this tag through Paige @ Reading Paiges which has now seemed to have been removed from her page, but I put the link to her home page!
Looking for some book recs to read for fall/Halloween? Well I have a couple of lists!
1. What goes bump in the night? Name a book that has legitimately scared you while reading it.
First off, I don’t read horror/thriller books, so I feel like I can’t answer this question in the way that it was probably intended. But, the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick gave me some spooky vibes because when I was reading it, I saw the story playing out in muted colors and was honestly on edge while reading it because of the unsettling vibes.
2. Jack O’ Lanterns and Classic Costumes: A book you always reach for during Halloween time.
I’m not one who normally rereads books during specific times of the years, so again, I can’t really answer this question. If I were to reread a book during this time, it would either be Crave by Tracy Wolff or The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith since they’re both in the supernatural world and have an eerie feeling all of its own!
3. Black Cats and Magic Mirrors: A book you love that is laced with superstition and/or magic.
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson! I love magical elements that Nathaniel brings to the book and how the books have personalities that are so human like depending on their content.
4. Witch’s Brew: Favorite witch character in any book/series.
A witch *taps chin*. Do you know how many books have witches and warlocks? It’s not HP because I haven’t read it. But, I don’t think I really have a favorite witch/warlock. I love Magnus, but I’m not sure if I’d call him my favorite out of all of them throughout the plethora of witches and warlocks in the world of books.
5. Ghouls and Ghosts: A book that still haunts you to this day (good or bad).
Bad book: After by Anna Todd. Look, I’m well aware that everyone has their reasons for either liking or disliking books, but with After, I just can’t handle Hardin and Tessa’s relationship, yet it’s a book that I also seem to think about when I sit in my mental health nursing class and even when I was taking human growth and development psych class.
Good book: The Lux Series by JLA. All I can say is Daemon Black *swoon*. He’s such a handful, but I’d gladly spend time with him!
6. Haunted Graveyard: You’re all alone in a haunted graveyard, you get ONE book to give you comfort, which is it?
The Bible! I hate to get religious on y’all, but if I’m alone in a haunted graveyard, I’m going to need to word of the good Lord to get me through the night!
7. The Undead: Favorite supernatural creatures to read about (i.e. vampires, zombies, werewolves, etc).
I love werewolves. Maybe because they are a common shifter or the thought of fated mates, but I love reading about werewolves. Vampires would either be 2nd or 3rd, and zombies? I have read any books that focuses on zombies.
8. In the dead of night: Pick a book with a black cover.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. I haven’t read it, but it was one of the first books I thought about with this prompt that is a book with a black cover.
I’m tagging anyone who would like to do this tag! Just make sure to tag me so I can see your post!
Happy reading until next time,
