I don’t know if you guys know this but fall, specifically October, is my favorite time of year. I love spooky things. I think I’ve driven Eden and Caitlynn crazy by requesting to go to haunted houses every weekend. I’m also on a big horror film kick right now. One of my favorite Halloween movies is Hocus Pocus so I couldn’t just scroll past this post that I saw on Alex’s Blog
1.) The Sanderson sisters a great trilogy:
The first trilogy that came to mind is the Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. This trilogy was the perfect length and I loved the characters. I wish I would have liked her other series as much.
2.) Winifred Sanderson a book with a truly evil female villain:
Nashira Sargas from The Bone Season. No matter what way you look at her you can’t help but hate her. She is evil incarnate.
3.) Sarah Sanderson a book that uncannily attracts children:
I’m going to say Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children because my students really enjoy that series and the movie. It’s a book I can definitely bond with them over.
4.) Mary Sanderson a book that is just plain silly:
Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham. This was an audiobook that had me laughing the entire time. I really enjoyed the book. You can check out all of my thoughts on it here.
5.) Max a book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed:
I’m going to look at this question more from a character’s perspective. I’m going to say The Field Party series. Sometimes the characters in these book just take themselves a little tooo seriously.
6.) Dani a book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a poignant and passionate book. It says what needs to be said about the current state of our society as a whole and I really appreciated that. We did a full discussion post on it that you can check out here.
7.) Binx a book series that just won’t die:
This is exactly how I felt about the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. There are just so many of them. I’m not going to lie. I definitely gave up on this series.
8.) Ice a book with a character that’s dumb as a rock:
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler was filled with characters like this. Even the “intellectual” characters lacked any real depth, common sense, or decency.
9.) The black flame candle a book or series you wish you could resurrect:
So, I just finished Our Dark Duet. I was completely satisfied by the ending. But, now I am missing the world Victoria Schwab created. It was the perfect stopping point. However, a girl can dream.
10.) Headless Billy Butcherson a book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be:
Any of the Bloodlines series. I feel as though these books have been written off by people because of the cringey covers. However, people are missing out because these books are a lot of fun.
11.) Winifred Sanderson’s spell book a book with a mind of its own:
Wink Poppy Midnight. I’m still confused by this book. There were so many aspects of it that were strange and confusing.
12.) Garry Marshall a book with a cameo:
One of my favorite cameos is Magnus Bane in The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare. He really adds to the book series.
What’s your favorite cameo in a book? I tag you to complete this if you made it this far.
