And I’m back with another book tag for the season! 🙂 Can you tell that I love doing book tags? If not, I do and I enjoy reading them too because I get book recommendations from them sometimes, but only when peeps give more details on the books mentioned in the tag.
Well, I wasn’t tagged for this one but I discovered it over on Dani’s blog, Perspective of a Writer. She had some cool graphics over there. I really like how her blog looks. The tag was created by seelieknight.
Best autumnal themed book cover.
Cuttings by Yuko Ota (illus.)
This is a collection of illustrator Yuko Ota’s work. I got it at the Small Press Expo last year but haven’t yet picked it up to read. I think it fits this category well, both the illustration and the colors.
Which fictional friend group would you trust with a Ouija board?
None because I’m not fucking with that shit. But, if it was a matter of life and death and I was pressed to choose someone because we definitely had to use it, I’d choose…
I mean, Dumbledore is wise so he’d be the best person to help me out with it and chances are he’ll teach me something new along the way. Though…he does make some huge mistakes because he’s so smart so…I dunno. I think I’ll still be safe with him.
By the way, this awesome portrait of Dumbledore was done by Tatyana Buyskaya. Check out more of her stuff here.
In which book setting would you love to celebrate Halloween night?
Because Halloween is always fun at Hogwarts. 🙂 (Can’t help myself!)
Best autumnal food description inside of a story.
Y’all don’t judge me. I gotta go with another Harry Potter book.
I can’t even remember the description of food at the Halloween feast in the fourth book, or even if there was a feast, hmm… I’m pretty sure there was one and that’s when the Goblet of Fire selected the school champions. Pretty sure. Anyway, whatever the food descriptions were, I’m sure I liked it.
Which fictional character would you dress as?
Dee from Rat Queens
Definitely Dee from Rat Queens, a comic book series about female mercenaries fighting monsters and other things. She’s a sexy badass.
The art above is by Jamal Campbell.
An antagonist you would pledge your allegiance to.
I’m not one to pledge allegiance to peeps. I side with whomever will benefit me most at the time. (Hmm…maybe I’m more a Ravenclaw with Slytherin tendencies than a Ravenclaw with Hufflepuff tendencies than I thought.) 😮 But if I was forced to choose, I’d probably go with…
I’d probably go with the Lannisters, temporarily. I’m just not one to stay stuck with one side for long.
The creepiest book you’ve ever read.
The Curse of Crow Hollow by Billy Coffey
I don’t read many horror books so I didn’t have much to choose from for this one. Coffey’s book here wasn’t very scary but it did creep me out a bit by the end. It’s about a town in Virginia called Crow Hollow that a supposed witch cursed.
A book you’ve yet to read but will read this October.
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll (illus.)
I’ve been meaning to read this ever since I got it but have yet to do so. I’ve placed it on my fall/Halloween TBR since I got it. Eventually I’ll read it.
Which fictional character would you put in charge of the decorations for a Halloween party?
Lady Patience from the Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb. I’m sure all the decorations will be stuff I least expect to be there.
