Bookish Witch Tag

From the moment I saw this tag over on Corner of Laura, I knew I’d have to do it too.

Halloween is just a few days away, so it’s the purrfect time of year to do this tag! It was created by booktuber Clair Rousseau.


Hop on your broomstick and pick a favourite witchy setting.

Addams Family Book Tag | 1964 Edition

Let’s continue the Halloween book tag trend with this Addams Family Book Tag.

I did an Addams Family book tag several years ago (check it out here) but I based the gifs and such I included in my post on the 1991 movie, which I loved as a kid. However, today’s Addams Family Book Tag was created by White Rose Stories, who loves the 1964 TV show edition of the Addams Family. This is new to me because I didn’t know the Addams Family had been around for so long. I thought the 1991 was the first one.

Well, I’m glad to learn something new about a movie I enjoyed. I’ll include the gifs I saw in Rose White’s post here, in case you’re unfamiliar with the 1964 show too.


Morticia Addams — A book containing your favourite character

Nanny Ogg

Nanny Ogg from Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett quickly popped in my mind. She is one of my favorite characters from Pratchett’s Witches books, a subseries of his Discworld novels, which is a fantasy series set on a flat world that rests atop four giant elephants that stand on the shell of an enormous turtle that’s flying through space. The stories are silly and fun and I enjoy them.

Top 5 Tuesday #65: Creepy Covers Coming 😱

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm, and now hosted by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.


This week’s topic:

Top 5 creepy covers

(Let’s chat about all those book covers that give you super creepy atmospheric vibes!!)

Brace yourself. This is about book covers, so naturally I went overboard with the pics.

I haven’t read any of these books, so I’ll link to the Goodreads page.

Krampus: The Yule Lord by Brom (illus.)

This cover is one of the creepiest to me. I try not to look at it and will quickly scroll past whenever I glimpse it because it’s the type of image that annoyingly sticks around in my mind long after I see it.

Spooktastic Reads TBR | 2021

Spooktastic Reads is back! 😀

Spooktastic Reads is a mini-event hosted by the Wyrd & Wonder crew — Imyril, Lisa, and Jorie — over the 13 days leading up to Halloween, so October 19 – 31. (For more info, check out Imyril’s post.)

Spooktastic Reads is a laid-back event, so there’s no need to make a TBR or to even read books for it. You participate in whatever way you like, which I’m grateful for because this is always a busy time of year for me.

I tend to always make a TBR and never read anything from it, so this time I shall instead list books I’ve already started and need to read. There’s nothing scary on it (well, one of them may be, but I doubt it). These books just give me fall vibes.

All About Halloween Book Tag

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!

Halloween Book Covers Tag

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.

skull/skeleton/bones

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.

Monster Mash Book Tag

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.

Supernatural Book Tag

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?

a wand

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.

Gothic Book Tag

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.

Spoopy Memes Book Tag, Pt. 2

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.
