Bookish Mid-Autumn Festival Tag

Hello friends, happy Wednesday! I hope your week’s off to a great start. I kind of wish I were on weekend already again, haha, but well. I’m coming back today with another bookish tag, and for once I tried to plan it well – at least, before the season ends….

It’s the Bookish Mid-Autumn Festival Tag, and I am answering these little questions thanks to one of my closest blogging friends, Kat. Thank you so much! Though I’m not sure how much I should thank you, I had a bit of a hard time finding answers to that one haha, but it was a lot of fun, as always!

1. REUNION OF FAMILY: Name a Book with Family Goals

my life next doorsimonI kind of want to steal Kat’s answer here and go with The Garretts, from My Life Next Door, because they are such an incredible family, I love them so much. I could also think about Simon’s family -it’s been a while since I talked about that book, wow. I mean, they all watch reality shows together and it’s just … quite awesome.

2. FULL MOON: Name a Book with a Werewolf (this festival has nothing to do with werewolves; the only common things is the full moon).

How come the only book I can think about right now is Twilight ? I guess I haven’t read many books with werewolfs besides that one, and it was years ago.

3. MOONCAKES: Name a Kind of Food in a Book that you Wish was Real.

wrath and the dawnThe only book with food that I can think about right now is The Wrath and The Dawn, and that’s because all of the descriptions of food there made me me SO hungry. Also, it was a fantastic book. And I still can’t believe I didn’t get the sequel. What am I waiting for? I’m asking myself this very same question. My bank account isn’t, though, it’s just giving me a dark “don’t-you-dare” look. Erm.

4. RABBIT: Name your Favorite Creature from a Book.

Only because I recently read it in one of my twinnie’s posts, I am thinking about Dobby right now. But it is breaking my heart in a million pieces to think about him. WHY.


5. CHANGE: A Character that Makes a Significant Change to the Plot Since he/she did Something too Many Times.

witherI thought about this for like a good twenty minutes before actually coming up with the idea of the book I JUST finished reading. Good job, Marie. I think one of the characters in this really is evil, and did some bad stuff WAY too many times, but without him it wouldn’t be the same. I’ll shut up because spoilers.

6. LANTERNS: Name a Toy or Game in a Book that you Liked to Read About.

the forbidden gameThere was this book I read a while ago, it was called, The Forbidden Game, and even if I don’t remember a lot about it, I still remember loving it. That game they play, the whole fantasy side to it, I loved it to bits. Also, for some reason I feel the need to talk about Jumanji?! WHO ELSE loves it? I’m getttig kind of out of the subject here. Sorry.

7. AUTUMN: Name a Book which you Feel is the Best to Read in Autumn.

TruthAboutForever sarah dessenHm, how about ANY single cute contemporary book while you’re hiding behind a huge blanket on the couch with a warm cup of tea? I could go with Sarah Dessen’s book, or something by Jennifer E. Smith for that.

8. FESTIVAL: Name your Favorite Festival in a Book

I can’t actually remember reading about a festival in a book? Maybe I’m wrong, and my memory isn’t the best with all the books I read ahah.

If you haven’t done this tag yet… FEEL FREE TO, I’d love to read your answers!

Can you tell me about a book you love with a GREAT family in it? I’m always looking for more of these !

Also, which book would you like to read, hiding under a big warm blanket? Let me know in comments! πŸ’¬

      1. It’s about a girl who basically sacrifices everything for her family until she meets a guy who helps her to stand up for herself. Something between romance and coming of age. Read only 50 pages so far but it’s really interesting so far πŸ˜€

  1. Great picks for this tag Marie. Oh I love family dynamics, especially in YA contemporary books, and the Garretts were a favourite of mine just because they were so loud and chaotic but really loving as well. ❀
    I haven't read The Forbidden Game; it was on my to-read list when I was younger because I loved L.J. Smith's books but then she never released the last book in the Night World series and that really pissed me off because I've been waiting nearly seventeen years for it now! Sorry, now I'm getting a little off topic, but this is a great tag, and perfect for the fact that it's now autumn and we're getting some colder weather in Europe as well! πŸ˜€

      1. That’s all right! ❀ And not a clue, that's part of what makes it so annoying. Every so often it seems like there's a rumor it will be published soon but I've given up hope now. There's only so long you can wait for a book and apparently seventeen years is my maximum! πŸ™‚

  2. I absolutely love fall, so I consequently love all fall-related tags πŸ™‚ (I just did a similar one as well)
    Yes, Simon’s family is so amazing! And I have My Life Next Door lying on my shelf so I hope to get to that one soon and discover a new amazing family πŸ™‚ I also really liked the family in P.S. I Like You, they were big and chaotic but also really wonderful!
    The food in Wrath and the Dawn sounded so good, I get hungry just thinking about it!
    I usually tend to lean towards fantasy in the fall, but it also happens that my mood swings tell me read ALL the contemporary, so I guess it depends on that πŸ™‚


  3. Yay for autumn themed, well, everything!! πŸ˜€ Why did you have to remind me of Dobby again?! *cries and looks at his funko pop* Just like Drew, I watched Jumanji when I was a lot younger as well. Countless times actually because it’s awesome :D. About the warm blanket read: any book will do at the moment :3 *lights scented candle*


      1. I do! I’d never buy one myself because they are way too expensive for what they are, but! I’m glad I’ve got Dobby <3. Haha, I'm just thinking it would make a great Halloween hors d'oeuvre for my husband because he's such a scaredy pants when it comes to grown up horror movies ;).

  4. Isn’t there a werewolf in Harry Potter too? Well.. I haven’t read it (only watched it), but that would probably be a great alternative to Twilight! πŸ˜› AND YES TO JUMANJI! Classic! Deserves a re-watch for.. you know.. autumn? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Also skeptical about the sequel to come! But.. who knows! πŸ˜›

  5. What a cute tag. πŸ˜€
    For the favorite creature category, I immediately thought about Harry Potter, too! lol. And yes, Dobby is my favorite. πŸ™‚
    I’m also drawing a blank for other werewolf books. Though, one was recently recommended to me and I added it to my TBR. I like the idea of werewolves and I like horror/speculative fiction, so I need to read more of these kinds of books!

    1. If I remember right, I think I’ve only read that one so far, but I’m looking forward to reading more! Is there any one in particular you’d recommend? πŸ™‚ Some books really deserve more love, I agree πŸ™‚ ❀ Thank you so much! ❀


  6. I love your answers, Marie! 100% with you on the food descriptions in The Wrath and the Dawn… every time Shazi eats down to eat a meal or a snack (which is surprisingly often), I’m just “omg please where can I get the same things???”. And the Garretts are just a wonderful bunch. 😍

  7. Wonderful answers! ❀ I love The Garretts as well,they're so precious. I also love Lily's family from PS I Like You, it was so funny and heartwarming to see them haha also, my favorite family of all time would be The Weasleys. As for books to read under the blanket… hmm, I'd love some tear jerker so probably Me Before You or The Sky is Everywhere πŸ˜›


  8. You’re in luck because all of the food in The Wrath and the Dawn is real :D! Get yourself to a Middle Eastern restaurant. We have many authentic ones in Melbourne so I was luckily able to satisfy my craving. A festival I would love to attend is the Starfall in the Night Court/ACOMAF hehe.

  9. The Wrath & The Dawn made me hungry, too! The author must’ve been super hungry when writing the series, because there was so much talk about food that it made me hungry while reading it! Totally agree on that one!
