Who doesn’t love fall? I’ve always lived in a place with no definitive seasons, the weather always being in the mid-70’s and sunny. However, the four years I lived in Oregon, I really got to experience the gloriousness of fall. The lush greenery as we walked along the Willamette River to get to the football stadium. The leaves falling all around campus littering the damp ground as you walked to and from class. Yeah, it rained a lot, but it was so beautiful that it didn’t even matter. I got this lovely autumnal tag here
1. Best autumnal themed book cover?
Basically anything with leaves and the colors orange and yellow
2. Which fictional friend group would you trust with a Ouija board?
I don’t necessarily think I would trust them, but the Creekwood Gang from Simon Vs. would be pretty entertaining and probably just a big mess.
3. Which book setting would you love to be celebrating in during Halloween night?
Hogwarts, duh. When ever I’m asked a question about joining a fictional universe the answer will always be Harry Potter.
4. Best autumnal food description inside of a story?
There’s a reason channels play Harry Potter at Halloween time! It’s so autumnal. I mean, who doesn’t want to eat at the Grand Hall during the Welcome Feast?
5. Which fictional character would you dress as?
Not book related, but I think dressing up as Daria Morgendorffer from Daria would be fun or Spinelli from Recess. I guess I just want to dress as my animated alter egos. Hmmm…
6. An antagonist you would pledge your allegiance to?
Honestly? Probably Ursula from The Little Mermaid. I ccould deal with no voice if it meant I had legs and the ability to hang out on land.
7. The creepiest book you’ve ever read?
One thing that I got out of 11th grade English was my love of Edgar Allan Poe. I think he’s the king of creeps. I have an old book of his stories that I got from a used bookstore and it looks real spooky.
8. A book you’ve yet to read but will read this October?
I’m trying to tackle as many mystery/thrillers I can for the month of October and so far I’ve read five! Going back to my love of Edgar Allan Poe, the one book I really wanted to get to this October (and I did) was His Hideous Heart: 13 of Edgar Allan Poe’s Most Unsettling Tales Reimagined edited by Dahlia Adler. I listened on audiobook and it was so much fun for the authors to share their remixes of these classic tales.
9. Which fictional character would you put in charge of the decorations for a Halloween party?
Hermione Granger. I would put her in charge of anything that needed to be done. Bitches get shit done.
