Happy Halloween!! 😀
Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating it while taking corona precautions.
Well, my book tag week has led up to this great holiday — HALLOWEEN!!! 😄😆🙃 — so here I am with the last tag, for now….
I found the All About Halloween Book Tag over on Madame Writer, who credits CatFairy Books as the creator. But it seems that CatFairy Books has taken down their blog. Aww…
Well, to the tag!
What are your favorite Halloween movies?
I have so many!

Just a day left before Halloween, so here I am with the Halloween Book Covers Tag. I’ve seen it going around on several blogs and had to jump in on the fun too, especially for this themed book tag week.
The tag was created by Kristen at Metaphors & Moonlight. And the intention is to just find a book cover that matches each category. I love a great cover, so I’m happy to do this tag.
Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett
It’s the 11th Discworld novel and the second one in the Death subseries. I haven’t read it yet, but my plan is to start on these after finishing the Witches subseries.

We are a few days closer to Halloween, so here’s the Monster Mash Book Tag! It was created by booktubers the Spine Breakers and is based on “Monster Mash” by Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers:
I found it over on Madame Writer last year and saved it so I could do it this year! 😄 Yes, I plan ahead sometimes. (*pats self on back*)
I was working in the lab late one night: What’s a book that kept you up at night?
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I recently read this and although it starts out slow, I got so hooked that I’d stay up to get through more of it quicker. I just really needed to find out what’s going on, for the mystery to be solved.

There I was… looking for another tag to do for this Halloween-themed book tag week when I thought to myself, “Hey, why not do a Supernatural book tag?!” It was a great idea, so I googled it and guess what? I found two. Ha!
But I only did one because it’s kind of long. So, if you’re a fan of the show, tuck in. If not, still tuck in because you could probably get some great book recs from this… or not. Anyway, I highly recommend the show. It’s about two brothers travelling across the U.S. in a car hunting supernatural things, the family business, and dealing with a whole bag of drama along the way, lol.
This Supernatural Book Tag seems to be quite old. I do not know who created it.
The Colt — If you could own a fictional item, what would you choose?
I try not to choose a Harry Potter book these days because it’s become so cliché to do so, but it’s hard not to for questions like this. I mean, who wouldn’t want a wand? You can do anything with it.

This tag will be quite tricky for me. The Gothic Book Tag was created by the Classics Club, which encourages folks to read classic books. I attempted to do the 50 classics in 5 years and failed miserably at it, lol. I wasn’t fully committed, but I still dip into a classic book every now and then.
The intent of this tag is to answer the questions with classic books in mind. Well, I know I’ll fail at that because I’ve read some classic books so long ago that details about them have faded. But I’ll try my best.
Which classic book has scared you the most?
Beloved by Toni Morrison
It’s a historical fiction novel about a woman who escaped slavery to Ohio. Many people believed she’d gone mad when she took extreme actions to prevent her kids from being sold into slavery. Years later, she’s still haunted by memories of the past and the spirit of her dead baby.

Lol! I did the first part of this book tag exactly one year ago. If Emily at Embuhleelist keeps creating them, I guess it will become an annual event on my blog to do the Spoopy Memes Book Tag on October 26, lol!
Name a character that keeps repeating the same mistakes, despite having multiple opportunities to prevent them.
Nevare from Forest Mage by Robin Hobb
Emily chose Fitz from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series, so I’m gonna choose Nevare from Hobb’s Soldier Son trilogy, which Emily and I are currently buddy-reading. We are about to start the last book in the trilogy now — Renegade’s Magic. To me, Nev is as hardheaded as Fitz so far, and it took him until the end of the second book, Forest Mage, to realize that he should start trying to do things a bit differently. It was a bit frustrating to read about even if I understand the reason for his obstinacy.

Autumn has become one of my favorite seasons. I even like the cold winds that sometimes blow through it because they make me bundle up in cozy sweaters and thick scarves.
I love this season for its blazing colors and for the fashion that goes with it too. It’s the only time of year that I’m eager to shop for clothes, so my closet tends to have more items to wear in the fall than in any other season.
I love the food and drinks this season inspires, especially as it leads into Christmas — hot chocolate, apple pie, gingerbread latte, pumpkin spiced latte, and so much more.
Anyway, for today’s entry in BOOK TAG WEEK, I’m doing the Autumn Book Tag, which was created by Jenniely. And this time, I was tagged by the Orangutan Librarian 😄😆 (she tagged me for it last year, lol, but don’t mind that. Better later than never, eh!) 🙃.
Hot Chocolate: What is your comfort book?
Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill (illus.)

I saw this tag going around and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do it too, especially for this season. I consider myself tagged by Madame Writer because I saw the tag there first. It was created by booktubers *emmie* and CarolynMarieReads.
What is your favorite “academia” or “dark” book + movie?
I don’t know why, but my mind went blank when I read this question. I guess it’s because I haven’t read many “academia” novels, but I’ve certainly read a few “dark” ones. For my favorite book, I choose The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey because it’s a bit dark and it fits the dark academia aesthetic.

Fall is here 😀 and Halloween is on the way, so my plan is to do a BOOK TAG WEEK leading up to Halloween. From now until Halloween, I’ll mostly post book tags. They will all be fall or Halloween themed.
I hope you’ll get some great book recommendations from them.
I’m kicking off the event with the Fall Bucket List Book Tag, which I found over on Kristin Kraves Books. It was created by Read by Tiffany, who created the graphics for it that I use below.
Picky Eaters, Pt. 1 by S.J. Higbee
It was the first thing to pop in my head. It’s a fantasy short story about a great, old dragon babysitting his grandkids. It was a light, fun, quick read that was entertaining.
Continue reading “Fall Bucket List Book Tag”
Hey!! I read a story by someone I follow on here! 😊 I follow Sarah’s blog, Brainfluff. Back in the summer, she posted Amazon links to her short story, “Picky Eaters,” intending to lighten up the many worries we were (and are) dealing with in 2020. I read the story in August and really liked it.
Picky Eaters, part 1
Castellan the Black, now better known as Casta the Grey, has led an eventful life, but these days he’s content to live alone in his mountaintop lair, fending off occasional attacks from the food and waiting to die. At least, that’s what he tells himself.
