A magical character or book

51HSkTKlauL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_Ah, finally, an opportunity this month to bring up Harry Potter! lol

Seriously though, this book is so magical! At least for my generation there are so many people who hated reading, and then they read Harry Potter and fell in love with books. If that isn’t magic, then I don’t know what is! They’re so wonderful that I can re-read them as an adult and not feel annoyed by the childishness because they aren’t childish. And there’s always something new to discover. I can only assume J.K. Rowling is actually some kind of witch.


The perfect book to read at night

Like, any book is the perfect book to read at night? When else do people read? Am I supposed to choose a scary book? Because I am sure as heck not reading any scary books at night, I can tell you that!


A book that truly shocked you

la-et-renegades-cover-20170515Renegades had the most shocking last page I think I’ve ever read. It wasn’t exactly a cliff hanger, but it’s made the last year of waiting REALLY difficult!

The Devil

A dark or evil character

36373298One of the cool things about Trail of Lightning is that Maggie is a very dark heroine. The entire book is pretty gritty, but Maggie especially is struggling to balance the darker aspects of her character and past with the hero that she wants to be. It made for a great read, and I highly recommend it to urban-fantasy lovers!

Grim Reaper

A character that never should have died

21853621I read The Nightingale this year, and there were a couple of very upsetting deaths in it. I don’t want to say who, because just in case you’re planning on reading it or seeing the upcoming movie I don’t want to spoil anything. But there were definitely a few child deaths that I was just ugly crying over.


A book that made you hungry for more

71LkLmxqgjLWhen I finished Eleanor & Park my only reaction was “WHAT?!?! It ended like THAT?!?!” I remember posting that a sequel would ruin it, but I might die if I didn’t get one because I just needed more. Honestly, all of Rainbow Rowell’s books are like that for me, and if you’re getting tired of hearing about her you should probably unfollow me before Thursday. 😉


A character that you would protect at all cost

The_Hunger_GamesMy instinct is Rue, but that doesn’t really make sense because if Rue lived then Peeta and Katniss wouldn’t have. But I’m sticking with it. I am still completely wrecked over Rue’s death.


A book that sucked the life out of you

41zqDXuSQEL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_I’m going with a loose interpretation of this, but I felt pretty drained when I finished The Goldfinch. It was just SO LONG, and I wasn’t enjoying it at all, and it was depressing. Every time I picked it up I just kept going “Is it over yet?” So yeah, drained is a good way to describe it.


A book that still haunts you

World_War_Z_book_coverWorld War Z is an utterly brilliant book, but it’s got some quite gory zombie sickness type stuff. I never really think of myself being afraid of zombies, but the scenes with family members turning have really stuck with me and haunt my nightmares from time to time. I think mostly because they’re so well-written than because I’m actually scared of it. Does that make sense?


A book that really scared you

41I3WemSw9L._SX293_BO1,204,203,200_Dracula is the scariest book that I am brave enough to read. Man, I was having so many nightmares while I was reading that book that I had to stop reading it at night! But it’s just so stinking good! Especially if you’re into Romantic literature, which obviously I am.


A character you have a bone to pick with


So, okay Mr. Friar Lawrence, I have a bone to pick with you! What the heck were you thinking?! If you wanted Romeo and Juliet to be together could you not have just SNUCK HER OUT OF THE CITY? Or let her live in the church for a few days and let people think she was missing and/or dead? What the heck kind of plan is giving her a pretend-death-potion and then just TRUSTING that Romeo is going to figure it out???? You seriously couldn’t think of ANYTHING better???????????


A book you would preserve throughout time

17910048I will be championing The Goblin Emperor until my dying day! If you like high fantasy you HAVE to read it!

Creepy Doll

A cover too scary to look at


So I don’t know why I found Night of the Living Dummy so terrifying when I was a kid. I was never scared of any other Goosebumps books, but that one put me off them forever. I had nightmares for like, a week. And to this day the cover scares the living daylight out of me! Just look at it! So creepy!

Monster Mash

It’s fun to be with friends on Halloween! Tag your friends!

I know October is almost over, so no pressure guys! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

  1. Thank you for tagging me! I totally agree with Goosebumps. That dummy gives me chills. I am really upset with myself for not reading some of these books yet. They all sound so amazing and why isn’t there more time in a day for us to read!? Life would be so much nicer.
