Halloween is only a couple of days away, so I thought I should do some type of Halloween book tag. When I was looking for one, nothing really caught my eye. That was until I saw the Halloweentown Book Tag. I just recently watched it again on Disney+ and loved revisiting it! So let’s take a look at this bookish tag!
Here’s what to do:
- Mention the creator of the tag, Bookish Coffee Blog
- If you were tagged, mention who tagged you!
- Answer the questions *duh*
- Have fun!
- Bonus: watch the movie while you answer the questions!
Halloween gives kids ideas about there being magic
Name a book that is full of magic
Spin the Dawn is a book that felt really full of magic to me. I loved reading about how the main character created the clothes and just the adventure she goes on to gather all of the materials she needs. It doesn’t seem like something she’ll be able to do, but she’s not one to take no for an answer.
Halloween is cool!
Name one book from your October TBR
One book from my October TBR that I really enjoyed is I Hope You’re Listening. A YA mystery was the perfect thing for this season. I definitely found an another author I want to read more by!
Nobody really appreciates my taste in weird stuff
Name your favorite underrated book
I’ve read a lot of amazing underrated books. One I want to mention today that I’m loving is Jackaby. Not many people talk about these books, but I don’t get why! They’re so good. I’m reading the third book now and loving every minute of it.
The Cromwells are powerful witches, and it took the power of all of them to defeat the evil
Name a powerful fictional family
The Hawthorne family is extremely powerful and they don’t like it when they don’t get their way. The Inheritance Game was an amazing ride and I’m impatiently awaiting the sequel.
Halloweentown was written about in a book, so maybe it’s real, maybe it’s not
Name your favorite non-fiction or historical fiction book
Historical fiction is a genre I’m really starting to enjoy and really want to read more of. At the moment my favorite is My Lady Jane. The Lady Janies trilogy is just really good. I love that these authors take history and give it a twist. They also all made me laugh. I can’t wait for the authors’ next trilogy.
Mayor Kalabar wants revenge
Name a book that you thought you would enjoy but ended up not
A Wicked Magic was a book I thought sounded really amazing and thought I would love. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. I have a feeling this is the type of book you either love or you don’t.
Instant Witch’s Brew: Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t
Name your favorite or least favorite book under 200 pages
Let’s keep this tag more positive than negative, so I’ll talk about my favorite book under 200 pages. I haven’t read many books that are that short, but one that I really loved is Every Heart a Doorway. I’ve mentioned it a few times on the blog, but I’m still so impressed what the author did with less than 200 pages.
Time works differently in Halloweentown
Name a book that was so good it made time stop
Isabelle and I read Slay earlier this year together. We were going to do a few chapters a day, but both of us started loving it so much we just couldn’t stop. This book was over before I realized and I loved it!
Mortals see mortals do
Name a book featuring non-human characters interacting with human characters
Tunnel of Bones is a book with humans and ghosts (yes, they were humans, but not anymore). I love the adventure our main character goes on and I can’t wait for the third book to be released next year.
Luke helps save the day
Name a character who you thought was bad but ended up having redeeming qualities
Ruhn is a character I didn’t really like at the beginning of House of Earth and Blood. I started liking him more and more and I have a feeling we haven’t seen anything yet. It’s going to be interesting to get to know him more.
An evil force is at work in Halloweentown. We have to put Merlin’s Talisman in the giant pumpkin to save everybody
Name your favorite fictional villain and hero
I have to say that I ended up with a soft spot for Eli. Somehow Schwab has made me want to like and feel bad for a character that isn’t “good”. I really need to read Vengeful. As for a favorite hero, that’s hard! I have to say that Elloren is definitely heading to become a favorite hero of mine. Again, I really need to continue with this series.
Halloweentown is saved!
Name a book with a really satisfying ending
The How and the Why has a satisfying ending even though I would love to know more. And that’s only because I’ve really grown to love the characters in this book. I loved the ending though, because it wasn’t all picture perfect. There were definitely still open endings, but it fit this story so well.
So that’s the Halloweentown Book Tag! It was actually a lot of fun to do. I tag any fans of Halloweentown. Have you ever seen this movie? Let me know in the comments.
