Halloween Book Tag

Today I’m answering the questions in the Halloween Book Tag created by Naomi Lemire. There are seven questions.

1. Carving pumpkins – what book would you carve up and light on fire?

This is really harsh to say about anyone’s hard work. One book I really did not like though is The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. This is one of only 4 one-star books on my Goodreads.

2. Trick or treat – what character is a treat, what character is a trick?

A treat is Percy from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee.

A trick is Felicity in The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee.

3. Candy corn – what book is always sweet?

The Princess in Black series by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale.

4. Ghosts – what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?

Definitely, none. That sounds terrifying.

5. Dressing up in costume – what character would you want to be for a day?

Maybe Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Zooming off in to space unexpectedly would certainly be an adventure.

6. Wizards and witches – what is your favorite Harry Potter moment?

I’m not really a Harry Potter fan. I’ve never finished the series though I’ve tried several times over the years. I’ve never seen the movies and the only book I really like is the first one. My favorite part is probably when Harry is trying to get through the doorway at the train station, but to be fair I don’t remember many other scenes.

7. Blood and gore – what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for a while?

I don’t normally pause books for that reason. I either stop it entirely, forever, or I keep on reading to finish it quickly if I really need to know what happened. The only book I can think of at the moment that I keep pushing myself to finish was Forever Breathless by Shirley Spain.

Do you pause books that are too creepy?

  1. Catcher in the Rye didn’t do much for me either. One book that I had to stop reading for a while because it was too awful, was Alex by Pierre Lemaitre. A woman in a cage in a basement where the rats are eating the rope that suspends the cage….
