Halloween Book Tag 2020
Happy Halloween everyone 👻!! Even though Halloween isn’t one of my favorite holidays, I’ve always loved dressing up and eating lots of sweets, and the spooky season has definitely caught my eye a bit more this year (even though I put up my Christmas tree about two weeks ago). Because of that, I couldn’t let today just pass by, so I thought it would be fun to do the Halloween Book Tag 🎃. No one tagged me, but I don’t care. I think it’s a great way to celebrate today.

🔥 Carving pumpkins- What book would you carve up and light on fire? 🔥
This is intense. I don’t think I would actually do this to any book, considering that it would mean I hate it and hate is a strong word. Of course, there are books that I really don’t like, but I wouldn’t light them on fire. However, I do have to pick one for the prompt, so for irony’s sake, I would light on fire Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
🍫 Trick or treat- What character is a treat, what character is a trick? 🍫
To say that I’m confused by this prompt is a major understatement. What do you mean a treat and a trick?? I’ll try my best, but please let me know if I’m doing it wrong.
Instead of choosing one character for each, I chose one for both. I think that Nico DiAngelo from the Percy Jackson series is both a treat and trick. Nico is one of my favorite characters ever, and I think he is wonderful. However, we know that he does have a mysterious/mischievous side. He’s not always very clear on his intentions or what pushes him to do something, and I think that is very interesting.
🍬 Candy corn- What book is always sweet? 🍬
A book that is ALWAYS sweet is Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This story is beautiful and so heartwarming. The movie is an incredible adaptation as well.
👻 Ghosts- What character would you love to visit you as a ghost? 👻
** SPOILERS FROM CHAIN OF GOLD **
Is it cheating if I pick someone who’s already kind of a ghost? I would really like to have a conversation with Jesse from Chain of Gold. I think that storyline is one of the most interesting, and I’m definitely a bit confused with everything that’s going on with that. I wouldn’t mind speaking with him and asking him what Grace’s deal is.
🧛🏼♀️ Dressing up in costume- What character would you want to be for a day? 🧛🏼♀️
At the moment I would love to be Poppy for a day (from the Blood and Ash series). Despite her circumstances, I think that she has pretty cool abilities that I wouldn’t mind having for a short time. Granted, they can be uncomfortable and not very nice to have, but it would only be for a day.
🧙🏽♀️ Wizards and witches- What is your favorite Harry Potter moment? 🧙🏽♀️
One of my favorite moments in Harry Potter is in Deathly Hallows when Harry and Aunt Petunia say goodbye. I thought that was a beautiful scene that really shone a light on Petunia’s character and how she struggled with what happened to her sister. I really wished they hadn’t cut that out from the movie.
💀 Blood and gore- What book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile? 💀
I don’t read creepy books and in recent posts I’ve already mentioned (several times) the ones I have read. At the moment I’ll choose Proof by David Auburn. Technically, it isn’t a novel, it’s a play. Still, I think the plot is a bit eery. I didn’t take a break from it because I read it for a theater class, but it definitely made me think a lot.
I hope you guys enjoyed this tag! I had a lot of fun coming up with the answers. Do you guys have any plans for Halloween? Have you recently watched or read any creepy stories? Let me know!
One thought on “Halloween Book Tag 2020”
I love Nico! And I agree, that Aunt Petunia moment was so heartwarming 😊 Cutting it is among those many countless movie sins…
My Halloween was actually pretty uneventful – I did carve jack o’lanterns with my brother, though 🎃
