Hey friends! A bonus book tag from me today instead of a book review… Specifically because it’s HALLOWEEN MONTH!!!!! and I wanted to be able to share this tag with you so I’ve swapped it out for a review, anyway, here we go.
I found the All About Halloween Book Tag over on Madame Writer, who credits CatFairy Books as the creator. But it seems that CatFairy Books has taken down their blog. I still wanted to give them credit though as this is a truly brilliant tag!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN MOVIES?
I’m going to be sooooo unoriginal here and say Halloween 1978.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN BOOK?
They aren’t specifically Halloween themed, but I love reading the Goosebumps series around Halloween, the sense of nostalgia they bring to me is second to none and they remind me of when I used to scare myself silly as a child watching them on TV with all the lights off.
WHAT OTHER HALLOWEEN BOOKS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?
The Shining by Stephen King and Salem’s Lot by Stephen King. I know they aren’t set at Halloween but they’re both ones that are perfect for reading with the lights dimmed, fluffy blankets, a hot chocolate and lots of Halloween sweets.
DO YOU OWN ANY UGLY HALLOWEEN SWEATERS?
I actually don’t🥺 but my mission for next year is to either buy one or ask my Nan to knit me one (I’m not saying my Nan knits ugly sweaters, but she defo would understand the assignment if that’s what I wanted!)
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES?
I love costumes that are based on scary characters or Halloween characters, so like people dressed as Jason or Freddy or Leatherface, oh and I love people who dress like Beetlejuice!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR HALLOWEEN THIS YEAR?
Now I live in the UK where Halloween isn’t as widely celebrated, but I will still be carving my pumpkin and waiting for any trick or treaters, all while watching horror films on repeat and then being too scared to drag my ass up to bed.
We also might be going to scarefest at Alton Towers for my birthday, but that’s a little bit earlier in October so.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHILDHOOD HALLOWEEN MEMORY?
We always put the pumpkins outside, to show that we were happy for trick or treaters to knock on our door, and my Mom would take me outside to the end of the path and I’d walk up to my own front door and knock and shout TRICK OR TREAT at my Dad and he would pretend to be shocked that I was out there and then I’d get to pick some sweets out of the bowl, it was so cute.
I also used to go trick or treating a lot around my local neighbourhood and with friends from school and their parents so that was cool too!
And a bonus for you all, I was actually about 8 years old when I watched Scream for the first time, it was one Halloween and me and my friend from primary school had snuck downstairs whilst the adults were watching it and I think that’s what ignited my love for horror films…
Anyway, let me know in the comments what you’re doing for Halloween this year and be sure to share with me your favourite scary movies!
Until next time, Em xxx
