Book Tag – Halloween

Happy Halloween! I’ve been seeing this tag a lot, most recently on Siobhan’s Novelties. I thought it would make for a fun on-the-day post. So here goes 🙂

Carving Pumpkins: What Book Would You Carve Up and Light on Fire?

Stolen book

Stolen (Kelley Armstrong) – If you’ve read my review, you have a pretty idea of why. I’ll contain the rant.

Trick or Treat: What Character Is a Treat and What Character Is a Trick?

Coraline Book

Treat: Coraline

Trick: Other Mother

Candy Corn: What Book Is Always Sweet?

Alice in Wonderland book

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) – A classic

Ghosts: What Character Would You Love to Visit You as a Ghost?

Nancy Drew book 1

Nancy Drew (Carolyn Keene) – Having a friendly detective “haunting” you could be like a superpower… think about it.

Dressing Up in Costume: What Character Would You Want to Be for a Day?


Cress, The Lunar Chronicles (Marissa Meyer) – I’d like to be an impressive techie/hacker for a day

Favourite Scary Must-Read for Halloween

The Bloody Chamber

The Bloody Chamber (Angela Carter) – Any of the short stories in this book are sure to set the mood for Halloween

If You Could Find Anything, from Any Book, in Your Trick or Treat Stash, What Would You Hope to Find?

Wizard of Oz book

The Silver Slippers, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Frank L. Baum) – Because teleportation powers are super practical!

In Which Fictional Would Would You Like to Go Trick or Treating?

Harry Potter book 4

Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling) – So much candy!

What Book Villain Would you Not Like to Meet Alone in a Dark Alley on Halloween?

Little Star

Little One (AKA Theres), Little Star (John A Lindqvist) – I’m less than halfway through this book and I’m not yet sure about WHAT the girl called Little One actually is… but she’s terrifying. She also may not be a villain, strictly speaking… but, she’s terrifying!

Would You Rather Dress Up as a Vampire, Zombie, Werewolf, or a Shadowhunter?


Shadowhunter – Not because I’m a big fan of the books (I actually didn’t finish the second one), but because I’m a big fan of the concept

What Is Your Favourite Halloween Candy?


Caramel Apples – The taste of autumn 🙂


I won’t tag anyone since the occasion is practically over (sigh)… HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Hope it’s filled with very few Little Ones

And lots of Caramel Apples and Chocolate Cauldrons
