Halloween Book Tag (v2)

27 Oct

Hello, a tag today. :”D I wasn’t tagged but I needed to do something festive for the creepy day on Monday. So here it is. This tag was created by Naomi TheBookLover. Also, totally did this tag last year. Doing it again.


Carving Pumpkins – What book would you carve up and light on fire?

I feel like there aren’t many books I hate with reckless abandon, and even then, burning books in general to me seems a bit excessive. If I had to choose one though… I’d choose Encyclopedia Britannica, purely because it’s effing huge and will keep me warm for hours. :”D

Trick or Treat – Which character is a treat and which is a trick?

Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy, #1)Treat: Nighteyes from Robin Hobb’s Farseer trilogy. This character is a wolf bound with the main character and he was a constant source of entertainment and joy throughout the series, even when he was a vicious little puppy. He’s so cute and I want a Nighteyes.Ship of Magic (Liveship Traders, #1)

Trick: Kennit from Robin Hobb’s Liveship Traders trilogy. I’m currently buddy reading this series with Zezee and it took three whole chapters for me to despise this guy. He’s just such an asscrack. Goodness gracious. I like the book, but wanna deck this guy in the head.

Candy Corn – What book is always sweet? What book was a huge let down?

RumbleI hate candy corn so I’m changing this question to something more suitable to my tastes. And now that the question is more accurate, I’m going to go with Rumble by Ellen Hopkins. I wrote a review on this book, detailing my dislike for it. I went into it hearing the Ellen Hopkins’ books were fantastic wonderful things and I was rather severely disappointed. Granted, I haven’t read anything else by her, so I’m probably assuming too much. I would totally be up for trying another, I just don’t know which to pick.

But yeah. Rumble was bad. Icky ick.

Ghost – What character would you like to visit you as a ghost?

I’m assuming the question isn’t trying to encourage spoilers, but it’d be way too easy to drop a few without thinking on this one. So to just avoid that altogether, I’m going with Nearly Headless Nick from Harry Potter. He’s already dead to begin with so no spoilers. :”D

Wizards and Witches – What is your favorite Harry Potter moment?

Image result for time turner bookProbably the time paradox at the end of the third book. The whole time-turner thing was such a huge missed opportunity and what little they did do with it was pretty great. So it’s my favorite part. :”D

 

Blood and Gore – What’s a book that was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for a little while?The Monstrumologist (The Monstrumologist, #1)

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey. This is a YA horror novel and therefore going into it I didn’t expect nearly as much gore and grossness as I got. It was a great book, don’t get me wrong, it just caught me completely off guard. I’ve heard the next one is even grosser so it’s intimidating me now.

 


And that’s it! I tag Ace, the Orang-utan Librarian and Zezee to do it (if you’ve done it, ignoring my poking).

Happy reading. :”D

    Lol! Thanks for the tag! Yea, I did this one already too but I might do it again. And lol at your Trick or Treat answer. Nighteyes is great. I much prefer his dialog with Fitz in Assassin’s Quest. And I loved the part where he was playing with the kids. You remember that? I thought that was so cute. A grown wolf playing with kids. Lol!

    Hi! 🙂 This tag is really nice! 🙂
    And I totally agree with you about Nighteyes (I loved him!!!!) while I do not despise Kennit, at least for now (I’ve read just the first one of this series but I haven’t fallen in love with the characters)-

      I’ve only read a few chapters of the first book so far and he’s already made a bad impression on me, haha. It could totally change if he turns out to be decent by the end of the book, but for now, I hate his guts. :”D

        I can’t say a thing because I do not want to make some spoilers. But I’ve read only the first one of this series and I didn’t like it a lot, even if I loved Fitz’ books. I hope that you like it more than me 🙂

        Huh, that’s interesting. o: I’ve heard from a lot of people that this is their favorite trilogy out of all the ones set in this world. You’re the first person to mention not liking it. (I also loved the Farseer trilogy, btw). After I finish it, would should definitely compare notes! 😀
