Thanks to Ariana @ The Quirky Book Nerd for tagging me! It’s super late, but it just recently started to feel like Fall in my part of the world, so I guess maybe it’s justified??? This tag was originally created by Ashley @ Dreaming Through Literature, so you should go check out her blog as well!
*Warning: Before I start answering these questions, I gotta give you the heads up that this post may have some weird looking formatting! My blogging software updated again, and now that beautiful rich text editor that I’ve bragged about before doesn’t wanna play nice with my screenreader anymore, so I am going to be typing raw HTML in order to make this post hopefully look pretty! I am by no means an expert on HTML, so this is gonna be interesting to say the least… Please drop me a comment if anything looks completely insane, and I’ll do my best to fix it! Thank you very much if you decide to continue reading this post! Now for those questions!!!
Apple Picking: A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
I absolutely loved the first three books in this series, and I can’t wait until I have time to start this one!
Corn Maze: A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
If you’ve been keeping up with my blog for a while, you know how obsessed I am with The Raven Cycle. I finished the last book a couple weeks ago, and I’m still not over the amazingness of this series! I desperately need a spinnoff series!!!
Haunted Houses: A book that scared you silly.
Anna Dressed in blood by Kendare Blake
I’m not one to read a lot of creepy stuff because I think some of this ghost business can actually happen, but I read this because of multiple recommendations. It was an amazing read, but I was terrified and slightly grossed out for the majority of it…
Pumpkin Patch: The latest book you picked up (purchased).
Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner
I’ve been researching tarot pretty extensively because one of the characters in my current writing project needs to have a reading, and my Google searches brought me to this book. I use the hero’s journey story to outline my writing, and I realized that’s basically what Tarot represents. So… This book is now patiently awaiting my attention in the Kindle app…
Scenic Drives: a book that is lyrically beautiful.
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Ok so the whole Raven Cycle series is written beautifully, but The Raven King is unbelievably stunning! I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better ending to that series!
Pumpkin Carving: A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I thought this series was going to break the vampire cliches, and it started out really cool, and then the plot went down the drain… I could go on, but I’ll spare you my rant!
Hiking: A book that was a highly enjoyable romp.
A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
This was one of my favorite books as a child, and I still love it! The characters are just so realistic, and I can always turn to this book when I need a good laugh!
Drinking Apple Cider: A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
I can’t do a tag without including Harry Potter because it’s like the greatest piece of literature ever written… I always seem to reread/rewatch it in the Fall and Winter months, and it’s absolutely perfect for this question! It’s just a cozy read even though people are trying to kill people throughout the whole series!
Jumping In A Leaf Pile: A book that reminds you of your childhood.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
AND… The Hidden Staircase (Nancy Drew #2) by Carolyn Keene
Yeah, I know… I used the same series twice. But The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite Harry Potter book, and any Harry Potter book is going to take me back to my childhood! I was also totally obsessed with Nancy Drew when I was in fourth and fifth grade, so that’s why I included that one.
Scary Movie Night: Your favorite spooky read.
The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray
I don’t read a lot of super creepy stuff, and I already used Anna Dressed In Blood, so I was pretty limited. I learned a lot from the writing style of this book, but I think I jumped every time I heard whistling for about a week after I finished it. You can click HERE if you wanna see my full review!
Bonus! Costume Party: A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater
I told you I’m obsessed with The Raven Cycle… I think that’s the third book from the series I’ve used in this tag! This book has a very large cast of characters, and “eclectic” is a great word to describe them!
I think the majority of bloggers I know have already been tagged for this, but if you haven’t, I tag you!
