Autumn Book Tag


Absolutely no one tagged me in this, but I really wanted to do an autumn book tag, so I decided to go for it. This tag was created by Viktoria of V./Seelie Knight (not sure what their blog name is completely so just go look over there, alright?).

Hold on, this post definitely needs a good autumn picture.

Aw yeah, look at those dying leaves. That's the good stuff right there.

Autumn aesthetic is just everything to me. I was sitting here in July signing over pictues of pumpkins and stuff.

Alright, so, let's do this!

Best autumnal themed book cover?

Honestly, I'm half-tempted to grab a picture book cover. No, you know what, let's do that. First I do have a novel cover, but it's an older one and a little odd, however the colours are so autumnal:



But honestly let's really go for it and get a great autumn picture book cover.

These are: Bear Has a Story to Tell by Philip C. Stead, Fall Mixed Up by Bob Raczka (which is hilarious, and if you can ever read to a group of kids, do so), Wild Child by Lynn Plourde, and Leaves by David Ezra Stein.

This first question has taken me so long!

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

Like with me around them? Nobody, because I am a white person, and white people using Ouija boards does not end well. I watch horror movies. I know this.

But you know what I think would be hilarious? If someone wrote the Baby-Sitter's Club doing using one. And for real, like getting results and haunted and stuff. Does someone want that idea to make an internet skit? I would fully support this.

Like this but with more demons.

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

I can't help but say Hogwarts. I know Harry Potter has problematic elements and JKR is kind of seriously a mess, but I mean. It's Hogwarts. Remember the Halloween feast? You can definitely tell that HP was written by someone who'd not always had the most to eat, honestly.

Like it's just so extra... although reading the wiki really shows that stuff tends to Go Down at Hogwarts on Halloween, so maybe that's not the best choice!

Best autumnal food description inside of a story?

Okay, it's not really an autumn book, but the best food descriptions I've read recently have been in Baker Thief. I've never wanted bread so much. Just thinking about it makes me want a baguette. Honestly if you mention Thanksgiving food to me, though, I'm totally ready to go. Give me all the turkey.

Which fictional character would you dress as?

I'm totally answering this next week in my book blogger hop! So, stay tuned for that!

An antagonist you would pledge your allegiance to?

Weird reply, but Magneto has some valid points.

The creepiest book you’ve ever read?

It's actually a short story from this collection:


Specifically, the story "The Moving Finger". I read it in like 7th grade, I think, when I went through a phase of reading a bunch of King books. (I've actually read like a dozen of his books?) And I think it's going to mess me up a little for the rest of my life XD

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

Um, what's October's book? Okay, I'm reading:


It'll be my challenge book for October. Other than that, I don't have any plans yet.

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

See, the thing is that planning things, especially parties, in books never goes well. Or if it goes well, it definitely doesn't go according to plan. And I am not that great with change, since I'm kind of a bundle of anxiety held together by leggings and hope, so the go-with-the-flow thing is not my favourite thing in the world.

So, um. Can I go back to my earlier answer and pick Claudia Kishi? I feel like that would be rad.

Alright! That was really fun. And I'm even more excited for autumn now!

Peace and spice cookies,
Laina
