Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Bookish Boxes and Buzzwords tag, which I found on Aoife’s blog. Onto the post!
Hello everybody, and happy Halloween! Today, I’m going to be doing the Halloween book tag, which I found on Katie’s blog. Onto the post!
1. Carving Pumpkins: What Book Would You Carve Up and Light On Fire?
Yerma. Absolutely hated that when I had to read it for school last year.
2. Trick or Treat: Which character is a trick and which is a Treat?
Trick- this is so hard to do without spoiling something! Since Harry Potter is pretty old now, I feel like I can get away with saying I was so shocked about the Moody reveal in book four.
Treat- Wilbur from Geek Girl. What a sweetheart though.
3. Candy Corn: What Book is Always Sweet?
I, Cosmo is the most precious book ever. Read it.
4. Ghosts – Which Character Would You Love to Visit You as a Ghost?
Sirius Black. Love him, always. Would love a chat with him about so many things.
5. Dressing up in Costume – What Character Would You Want to be for a Day?
I did a whole post about this last year! But this year, if I was dressing up I’d want to be Alba from the TV show Cable Girls.
6. Witches & Wizards – What is Your Favourite Harry Potter Moment?
Ooh, this is hard. My favourite comedic moment is the “you don’t have to call me sir, professor” one, my favourite dramatic one is Sirius’s death.
7. Blood & Gore – What Book was So Creepy You Had to Take A Break From it For A While?
Definitely Close Your Pretty Eyes!
What are your Halloween plans? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!
Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing the Fall Time, Cosy Time tag, which I was tagged for by Lucinda. Onto the post!
Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Wonderstruck book tag, because I love Taylor Swift so much right now (and always tbh) and I just really fancied it, especially since the lyric in the title comes from one of my ABSOLUTE favourite Taylor Swift songs. I found it on Dora’s blog and it was created by Olivia. Onto the post!

- Feel free to use any of the graphics in this post
- Tag however many people you’d like at the end!
You’re Not Sorry – A Book That Un-Apologetically Broke Your Heart
This is unexpectedly tricky. I don’t really read a lot of all out bleak books. Ways to Live Forever, I think. It’s absolutely heartwrenching.
Back to December – A Book You Still Think About Even After You’ve Finished
About 3 or 4 years after finishing it for the first time, I still think about the Lost and the Found at least a few times a week. That ENDING, bloody hell.
If This Was a Movie – A Book You Really Want to Become a Movie
I think the Flatshare would be god tier as a romcom film. It’s the kind I’d watch over and over and over.
Gorgeous – A Book With the Most Beautiful Cover
In Darkling Wood, which was designed by Julian de Narvaez. The book is amazing as well.
Shake It Off – A Book That Gets Hate But You Love
I’ve seen a lot of hate for Geek Girl and its sequels over the years! They’re quite niche to be fair, so I get why they’re not everyone’s thing.
Never Grow Up – A Book That Gives You Childhood Nostalgia
My childhood faves were the Pony Club Secrets series. I have so many memories tied to them and such a deep attachment that even now I could tell you pretty much every plot point of every book. I actually would love to reread them some time soon.
Sparks Fly – A Book You Instantly Clicked With
I knew within a couple of pages of Murder Most Unladylike that I would be a very big fan for years to come. I was right.
Style – A Classic That Will Never Get Old
My faves are always the same: the One Hundred and One Dalmatians and Charlotte’s Web. And I love Style.
End Game – A Book With a Romance You Love
If you’ve ever read this blog before, you know my fave book romance ever is Harriet and Nick from Geek Girk. But more recently, Cara and Hector from the Year After You were a couple I shipped so bloody hard.
I Knew You Were Trouble – A Book You Couldn’t Help But Become Obsessed With
I didn’t expect to enjoy Girl 38 as much as I did, but WOW it blew me away.
Bad Blood – A Book Where You Loved the First One, But Hated the Sequel
Oh, that’s not something I have too often that I can think of. I loved Karen M mCmanus’s first and hated her second but they’re both standalones.
What are your thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? And which of these songs is your favourite? I think mine has to be Sparks Fly, and I’d love to hear about yours in the comments!
