Welcome to October, the month of carving pumpkins, falling leaves, drinking apple cider, and, most importantly, Halloween!
Welcome to my first post of October this year! As I announced in my last Reading Wrap-up, this month is going to be all about Halloween. I thought it would be fun to start off with a Halloween themed book tag. As far as I could trace, the original creator of this tag was CatFairy Books, but don’t quote me on that.
What are your favorite Halloween movies?
While I do watch a fair number of horror movies, but most of them aren’t really good enough to re-watch. The Halloween movies I do tend to watch multiple times are the kids movies. Here are three of my favorite that I usually watch most Halloweens:
What is your favorite Halloween book?
This is a much easier answer. I rarely reread horror/scary books, but this classic remains one of my favorite to reread. I don’t necessarily read it just around Halloween, though. It scary all year round!
What other Halloween books would you recommend?
All classics, again. I definitely find that modern horror is very forgettable (maybe that’s just me). I read The Island of Dr. Moreau thinking it was sci-fi, but it bordered way more on horror (I was truly grossed out during several scenes). Anything written by Lovecraft is pretty disturbing, and The Phantom of the Opera isn’t really scary but still a haunting book.
Do you own any Halloween ugly sweaters?
I don’t own many sweaters period, much less Halloween-themed (maybe I’m missing out on something). I feel like this year I need to go shopping for some Halloween-themed clothing. I don’t even own any cool Halloween t-shirts, though I am a minimalist (so I don’t own many clothes).
What are some of your favorite Halloween costumes?
I haven’t worn Halloween costumes in years, mostly because I have no reason to (once I stopped trick-or-treating), but I remember one that I had as a kid that I loved. It was a pumpkin outfit, which my sister claims was super itchy, but I remember loving it. I couldn’t find a picture of me wearing it, so I’m just throwing up a picture from Google images of what the costume kind of looked like (except the pumpkin was a bit different).
What are you doing for Halloween this year?
Nothing…I don’t know yet. My family is in the process of moving states (I think I may have mentioned this before on my blog), so we may be traveling on Halloween, or searching for a new house. But so far, nothing is planned.
What is your favorite childhood Halloween memory?
Carving pumpkins every year with my dad. I hated carving pumpkins as a child (well, I liked carving them, but I hated cleaning out the insides), but it was one of the few times my dad would spend with my sister and I. For reference, my father passed away when I was fifteen, so the carving pumpkin memories mean more to me now then they did at the time.
As always, I’m not tagging anyone, but I’d love to know your answers if you do do this tag. What are some of your favorite Halloween movies/books? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments, follow my blog for more madness and, as always,
Best wishes in your life full of adventure,
