I can’t even remember the last time I did a bookish tag, but I can’t let spooky season go by without at least one. I was recently tagged in The Official Spooky Season Book Tag by Books Are 42.
Even though I’m a big scaredy cat, I still wanted to give this one a go. So let’s take a look at this tag!

Have fun and get spooky!!!
Question 1: You hear a strange noise in the night – the monsters got inside! Which book character would you choose to protect you from harm?
I would choose Cole from the Sinners Duet. He’s pretty evil himself, but he’s very clever and protective. I’d want him in my corner!
Question 2: You go on vacation and your hotel is located right next to a cemetery. Which book character do you really hope is not hiding in the shadows?
I’m currently still reading There’s No Way I’d Die First, but I really wouldn’t want to run into the murderous clown that is chasing our characters around the house in this book. I’m not a fan of clowns and this book proves to me once again why!
Question 3: It’s a particularly cold night and you decide to stay inside. Which three book characters would you like to spend a trivia quiz and board game night with?
Jessica from Enchanted to Meet You would be a character I would choose. In this book she actually goes to a weekly trivia night with her group of friends, so I’d say she’d be the perfect character to have on my team.
question 4: Time for a big adventure! The scary book you pick transports you into its word. where do you end up?
I’d be going to Paris in City of Ghosts. Cassidy Blake has gone on some spooky and interesting adventures and I’d love to join her.
Question 5: No Halloween without Trick or Treat-ing! Which book character do you think has the sweetest tooth?
Noah from When in Rome makes pies for a living (if I remember correctly), so I’d say that’s definitely a character with a sweet tooth.
Question 6: The fairies are angry and want a sacrifice from your bookshelf. Which scary book has to go and why?
The concept of Hide was really interesting, but the execution just didn’t work for me. I loved the idea of hiding in an abandoned amusement park for a week to win money. Of course, there’s more to it than that, but definitely a spooky scenario. We had a lot of POVs, which I don’t mind, but I didn’t feel like we really got to know the characters. Also, the ending felt a bit too rushed for my liking.
Question 7: You decide you feel more autumnal rather than halloween-y today. Which book setting would you choose for a more cosy and less scary vibe?
Spookily Yours! That was such a cozy book and it made me laugh out loud. It was also the perfect combination of spooky and spicy and I appreciated that the author didn’t add a lot of drama!
Question 8: The witch is cooking up a spell in her cauldron and you have to add one magic ingredient. Which item from a book are you adding to the mixture?
For some reason I can’t think of a single thing for this question. What would you add? I need some ideas!
Question 9: You get to decide which bookish place to visit for Halloween. Which book setting is the scariest – and gets crossed off the list?
Okay, so I know Small Spaces is a middle grade book, but I’ll never look at scarecrows the same again. So I’d never go on their field trip to Smoke Hollow.
Question 10: The big day is finally here: it’s Halloween! Which book character do you dress up as, and what would be part of your outfit?
I would dress up as Riko from Cat + Gamer just for the fact that I would get to cuddle with a kitten all Halloween
So I’m terrible at tagging people, so anyone who wants to do a spooky season tag, you’re tagged! If you end up doing this one, I’d love for you to let me know so I can read your answers. What’s your favorite thing about spooky season? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
