BLOGTOBER DAY THREE: The Autumn Book Tag

We found this tag on


1. Best autumnal themed book cover?

Bree: Definitely, Circe by Madeline Miller. The dust jacket and the undercover are both covered in bronze foil detail. The UK edition is especially beautiful with its floral motifs.

Tree: It’s not out yet so I’m sure the actual cover is going to be even prettier, but based on the ARC cover, A Good Neighborhood, by Therese Anne Fowler. It’s simple, but the is reminiscent of the changing colors, but also is a bit melancholy.

2. Which fictional friend group would you trust with a Ouija board?

Bree: Probably Esme, Janis, and Cassandra from The Babysitters Coven by Kate Williams. It’s literally their jobs/fates to fight the Other and protect kids. I’d trust them not to mess up majorly with a Ouija board…or at least be capable of fixing it they do mess up.

Tree: The Raven Boys. Blue’s family would be able to fix anything that goes wrong.

3. Which book setting would you love to be celebrating in during Halloween night?

Bree: Ooooh definitely the world of Caraval. I feel like Legend would have some wicked amazing decorations and food. Oh God, and the costumes! They would be fricken gorgeous.

Tree: After looking at my bookshelves for an embarrassing amount of time, I think, perhaps, the Gilded Wolves world. Even though there is a lot of stuff going on.

4. Best autumnal food description inside of a story?

Bree: Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin hicks mentions a Apple Cider Slushie that I would be interested in trying.

Tree: The Hogwarts Halloween feasts always sound delicious.

5. Which fictional character would you dress as?

Bree: For Halloween I’ve dressed up as both Annabeth Chase, and (if TV show characters count too,) Abby Sciuto from NCIS.

Tree: I have already dressed as Hermione, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Harry Potter. But, I think it would be a lot of fun to dress as Evelyn Hugo in that iconic green dress.

6. An antagonist you would pledge your allegiance to?

Bree: So, I had to I double check the meaning of antagonist before answering (to make sure I knew what exactly it meant), and all I can say is that Cardan Greenbriar definitely fits it’s definition perfectly. Also, feel like serving him would be more entertaining and less evil than some other choices.

Tree: I am not typically a fan of villains, but if you consider Victor Vale an antagonist, then him 100%.

7. The creepiest book you’ve ever read?

Bree: Maybe, I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga? It’s about a kid who’s dad was the world most infamous serial killer. His dad believed everyday was Take-Your-Kid-to-Work-Day, so Jasper was practically raised at crime scenes. To be fair, I don’t read much of the darker genres (thriller/horror), so this still YA, but this book does give a unique, yet unwelcome, perspective and twist to the serial killer subject matter.

Tree: Final Girls by Riley Sager might not have been the most creepy, but it made me way more paranoid about life. Also, the premise is creepy.

8. A book you’ve yet to read but will read this October?

Bree: Oh, so many, but Coraline by Neil Gaiman is probably the longest-awaited. I’ve had it on my TBR since I first saw the movie.

Tree: I plan on continuing to read thrillers. Next up is a Ruth Ware book, I just have not decided which yet.

9. Which fictional character would you put in charge of the decorations for a Halloween party?

Bree: Aphrodite from The House of Night series. It would be glam AF and way over the top. I would love to she what decorations she’s come up with though.

Tree: The Song sisters from Jenny Han’s To All The Boys series are excellent party planners and I would love to see what they would bake for a Halloween party.

 

xoxo, Bree & Tree
