Offsetting Penalties Spoiler Free Review

Offsetting Penalties
Offsetting Penalties
by Ally Mathews

Release Date: November 6th, 2017


Isabelle Oster has dreamed of being a prima ballerina her entire life, so when the only male dancer backs out of the fall production, she’s devastated. Without a partner, she has no hope of earning a spot with the prestigious Ballet Americana company. Until hot jock Garret practicing stretches in one of the studios gives Izzy an idea, and she whips out her phone. But does she really want this badly enough to resort to blackmail?

All-state tight end Garret Mitchell will do anything to get a college football scholarship. Even taking ballet, which surprisingly isn’t so bad, because it means he gets to be up close and personal with the gorgeous Goth girl Izzy while learning moves to increase his flexibility. But Izzy needs him to perform with her for the Ballet Americana spot, and he draws the line at getting on stage. Especially wearing tights.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a bit of blackmail, a lot of sarcasm, and an ending guaranteed to melt your heart.

My Thoughts:

***I received this book through Netgalley for an honest review***

I gave this book 3.5 stars. I liked the book, it was short and sweet.

This book was surprisingly short, I was at work and took my fifteen-minute break and I was reading this during that break and I somehow read about 15% of the book in that time alone. It helped that it was a real page-turner, I wanted to keep reading, but man that was fast. 

Because of how short it was I feel like there was a lot of things plot-wise that were left open-ended. A lot of things the reader wonders about aren’t ever resolved. It’s something that often bothers me about contemporary novels. I know contemporaries are supposed to be more realistic so something won’t get resolved, but in some of these books, such as this one, they lead you to believe that something will be done to fix them and when it doesn’t happen during the duration of the book its kind of annoying.

The climax of the story was kind of predictable, but I didn’t actually predict it so I guess it succeeded in being a good climax. At the same time, I also felt that the climax was resolved a bit too easily. The person that was causing the problem in the first place gave in despite being so against going in in the first place which felt like a cop-out. 

Despite the few things that bothered me, the characters were incredibly relatable and good hearted, you couldn’t hate them. The atmosphere of the book was cheerful, it never made me want to cry or thrown things. It was a nice read, good for contemporary lovers.

Sunday Favorites: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

I've finally been hit with inspiration for another Sunday Favorites Post. If you didn't know before, Sunday Favorites is a blog series where I talk about some of my favorite books and characters and some of my personal experiences with said books and characters. I hope you guys enjoy this weeks post!

It took me two days to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. The first day I started the book after school, my sister had a rugby game that day and I had to stay and watch, first their practice and then their game. So needless to say I was going to be there a while. I know this seems a bit obnoxious, but I didn’t pay any attention to the game that my sister and some of my friends were playing, which they later got mad at me about, I was too busy reading this book. In my defense, I knew nothing about rugby, less than nothing. I knew the bare minimum, only that it was sort of like football but not really, they just had similar balls and tackled each other. So I spent about three hours immersed in this book, loving every second of it.

The characters were witty and there were parts where I would just sit there laughing because of the ridiculous shit these characters would do, but I loved them for it. I especially loved Noah Shaw. This week's Sunday Favourites is actually inspired by the fact that I am currently reading an ARC of the Becoming of Noah Shaw, which by the way, comes out on the 7th of November.

Mara is also one of my favorite protagonists, she was just so damaged and a lot of the things she would think and say where things that I could relate to or at least find amusing in some way. What did break my heart was the fact that animals didn’t like her. Honestly, if animals didn’t like me I would probably start balling, however, Mara deals with it like a pro.

The atmosphere of this book is so different from anything else I’ve ever read. I have a generally hard time reading books that would be deemed creepy. A lot of the time it feels forced, like the author is just trying too hard to make it creepy and so the story drags on. This one seamlessly merged creepy with fast-paced. 

This is also one of those books that I could just reread 10 times and still be completely immersed in the story every single time. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is a book that always helps me whenever I need to get out of a reading slump, it has everything I really want from a book. It’s definitely one of my favorite books of all time.

Have you read the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? What are your thoughts?

The Silver Mask Review

The Silver Mask (Magisterium #4)
The Silver Mask
by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare



A generation ago, Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn't succeed . . . but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt. Now Call is one of the most feared and reviled students in the history of the Magisterium, thought to be responsible for a devastating death and an ever-present threat of war. As a result, Call has been imprisoned and interrogated. Everyone wants to know what Constantine was up to and how he lives on. But Call has no idea. It is only when he's broken out of prison that the full potential of Constantine's plan is suddenly in his hands . . . and he must decide what to do with his power. In this spellbinding fourth book of Magisterium, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take us beyond the realm of the living and into the dangers of the dead. 

My Thoughts:

I gave this book 4 stars. Since I read this book all on my own, no one asked me to review it, it’s not from Netgalley, that means this is going to be my first spoiler review in a billion years. I honestly don’t remember what the last spoiler review I did was. I have a lot of things to say about this one.

I don’t recall if this was ever an issue in the past three books, but this book felt very middle grade with the writing. Now I know it is middle grade, but it never really felt this level of middle grade before. I just feel like the writing has been simplified a lot and the characters act a lot more immaturely. I mean in the earlier books it felt justified that they were really immature because they were a lot younger, but now they’re about 16 and I feel like the characters should have reached a higher level of maturity, but I don’t feel like anything has changed.

I could almost forgive the lack of growth, what I can’t forgive is what they did to my precious Aaron. If you haven't read the first three books then you shouldn’t read this book and you most certainly shouldn’t be reading this review. Anyway, if you are unaware that in the third book in this series, one of the main characters, Aaron, died tragically. Well, in this one they brought him back. It was beautiful I was so happy and I couldn’t wait for them to fix him and everything would be okay again. That was not the case, he came back all angsty and all Maddison Montgomery from American Horror Story, he just wasn’t right. We all think, “oh it’s fine, they’ll figure something out”. That didn’t happen. These cruel, cruel authors decided to kill him again!!!!!!!!! I was so completely upset by this I wanted to scream. Now I was in the middle of a crowded room when I finished this so I couldn’t actually scream, but the sentiment was there.

Call and Tamara are actually so cute together. It’s funny seeing Call trying to rationalize everything that is happening between them even though Tamara is obvious with her crush on him. It’s cute. 

Call basically lost most of the leverage he had from the first three books and I have to say that it was so completely frustrating I just wanted to throw the book at the wall. While it makes for a good plot line, it is not so good for my stress levels. 

Also, this has nothing to actually do with this book but is anyone else having fun watching the title for the last book constantly changing. I think it was originally The Golden Boy or something like that; Then it was the Enemy of Death and now it’s the Golden Tower. Honestly, I'm interested to see if this third title will stick

Overall, I love this series. I love everything even though there are definitely problems with it at times and I’m just going to keep reading them and suggesting them. I love that the hero is also the villain, I love the friendship dynamic, and I love the magic.


Master Joseph only laughed, though. "I have a proposal for you, how about that? Callum, once you complete the task I set for you, you can leave the island with your friends if that's what you still want.""A task?" Call asked. "Is this some kind of trick thing where I have to tame an impossible elemental or separate dirt from sand on an entire beach?"Master Joseph smiled. "Nothing like that." He flung open the doors at the far end of the room. After a moment, Call and the others joined him at the entryway.Inside was a large, white-painted room. There was nothing in it but a metal table. On top of the table lay a body that was perfectly preserved, covered to the neck by a thin white sheet. "The task," he said. "Is to raise Aaron Stewart from the dead."


"I'll kill you—" There were tears on Call's face as he flung himself at Alex. "I'll kill you—""Stop him," said Alex lazily, and seconds later, Call felt himself seized by a dozen Chaos-ridden, their grips like iron.Alex's eyes danced. "I made these, Makar," he said, gesturing toward the Chaos-ridden in the clearing. "I am their creator, not you, not Constantine. They belong to me. They're obedient to me."

Stranger Things Book Tag

In honor of Stranger Things being back, I decided to do this tag!

I tried to track down the original post but from what I’ve gathered it doesn’t even exist anymore, so can’t link anything back. Anyway, I’m just gonna do the tag.

1) The Vanishing of Will Byers - the first book in a series that left you intrigued and slightly confused

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, you never really know what’s real or what isn’t, you don’t understand the powers and secrets and none of it really makes sense until later, but it’s a definite page-turner.

2) The Upside Down - a book with a setting you would never want to live in

The Hunger Games, I think the fuck not.

3) Eleven - a book you own that is somewhat damaged, but loved to pieces

I’ll Give You the Sun, I left it in the front pocket of my backpack while I was playing rugby and since I live where I live, it started raining an dry bag got soaked. Thankfully only the dust jacket got wet, but the cover is no longer as sunshiny.

4) Mike, Lucas, and Dustin - a trilogy you always go to whenever you need a pick-me-up

Shatter Me, but only because of Kenji and my OTP Juliette and Warner. So cute.

5) The Demogorgon - a book with a terrifying beast you wouldn’t want to face in a dark alley

A Court of Thorns and Roses, jeez, imagine having that asshole Tamlin “in love” with you, feel bad for Feyre.

6) Dr. Brenner - a book with a villain who is both manipulative and dedicated

Sebastian Morgenstern because despite everything he did I couldn’t hate him. He had us all convinced he had changed and then just stomped on our hearts, but I still love him.

7) Nancy Wheeler - a book you didn’t expect to love

Daughter of Deep Silence, no one seems to ever talk about this book and when they do it’s never very good, so I didn’t expect much going into it, but I fricking love that book. A+

8) Hawkins, Indiana - a book with a setting that’s just a little bit strange

This one I don’t even remember the name of, I just remember when I was in Elementary school one of my teachers read this book to me about this guy, I think his name was Mark, and he went out into the middle of the desert I think for an adventure and was transported to another world, there were cannibals and tribes and I think he ended up marrying the daughter of a chief. It was just really weird and the book that kept coming to my mind, I anyone knows the name of it please let me know, I would love to know because it’s driving me a bit crazy.

Feel free to also do this tag!

My Irritation Towards Perspective Changes

Perspective changes are probably one of the most common things in literature. Which is why it is incredibly important that they are done right, however, some people haven't gotten the memo, which is why I'm here to spell it out.

There are two things I hate in books, when the author writes the exact same book in another character's point of view and when the author changes perspectives halfway through the series, say adding a second perspective or just transitioning to a different character altogether. 

Books that are rewrites of another book but in another character's perspective are very hit or miss with me. Usually, I hate them.

I feel like a lot of these stories don’t add anything new to the original novel by having these new perspectives. For example, I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books, but she decided to rewrite Obsidian in Daemon’s point of view, and it was just that, Obsidian from Daemon’s point of view. There was nothing that we didn’t already know or any secret revelations that lead us deeper into Daemon’s inner workings, it was just him telling us what happened and I honestly could have gone without reading it. 

However, I do have to admit that Colleen Hoover’s Losing Hope was a rare exception as I think it gave us a lot of what we didn’t and couldn’t get out of Hopeless. It showed Dean’s side of things, the years he went without Sky, and in that case, it was a completely important part of the series. Also, I would like to add that if Richelle Mead ever decided to write the Vampire Academy from Dimitri’s point of view I would be the first in line to read it. What these two examples have in common is that these other characters are not open books, they have lots of secrets and a lot of the time you aren’t quite sure what they are thinking or what their motivations are, in these cases I would definitely love a book written from a separate point of view. However, most books aren’t like this. 

As for when the perspective changes halfway through the series it just doesn’t flow that well. I can understand if that book is another character's story all together but is just part of the same series, but if the book is just shifting over to say, the love interests point of view just for their input, I can’t stand it. Unless I hated the original protagonist, which I rarely do, then I don’t want a shift in character perspective.

Adventures in Farland Spoiler Free Review

Adventures in Farland
by Moshank Relia


Mira Rawat has heard tales of Farland all her life from her mother, who has described the magical place of gnomes, fairies, mermaids and animals, and especially its wondrous festival, the New Moon Party. Now, Mira has been informed by a man named Bushy that she has been invited by Princess Harmonica to attend the party. Bushy also uses a spell to turn her two friends, the mischievous and vexing boys, Bira and Vira, into rats so that they will not disturb the other party guests with their constant fighting and misbehaviour. At midnight, Mira, with Bira and Vira snuggled in her pocket, climbs Gunhill and is picked up by the pilot Starhead and flown in his plane to the party. However, the flight is cut short by a terrible wind, and Starhead is forced to land his plane near the Lost Forest. There, Mira discovers that Farland is in great jeopardy. Another Farland resident, Windman, has been generating great windstorms to prevent the Queen of Witches from reaching Dragon Hill. She intends to release the Dragon of Underhill, chained in its den beneath Dragon Hill, so that Farland will be burned and completely destroyed.

My Thoughts:

This book was hard to rate. My enjoyment level wasn’t all that high as I am not much of a middle grade reader. Looking at it as a children’s book, it had a bit of a higher rating, but only reading it as a child. It was hard to pinpoint where exactly it sat on the spectrum. I finally decided on 2.5 stars. 

I was told this book was for ages 6-15 but I feel like it would be more along the lines of 5-12. It just feels a bit young for 15 year olds. As I was 15 a few years ago I can say that I was definitely not reading books like this, I was more into the older YA books and I feel like a lot of 15 year olds would agree with that. This is definitely a good book for children though.

I’m a fan of middle grade, but this book felt even younger than middle grade and I’m just not sure if it was my cup of tea. If I had a small child I would definitely read this one to them as a bedtime story.

The illustrations in this book were also very cute and it was nice to see them every few pages, it gives a bit more of picture. It was also fun, books with little illustrations always add a bit of life to the story.

Waiting On Wednesday

Tiger's Dream
by Colleen Houck

Release Date: March 2018


A tiger left behind.

A goddess in need of an ally.

Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram must carry out his destiny of assisting the beautiful yet extremely irritable goddess Durga. This daunting task is not made easy by the fact that he must also face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away.

When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again. In his efforts to save her, Kishan discovers that the curse he thought was over is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear lie in hands.

The goddess’s power hangs in the balance. Kishan has no choice but to sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he’s charged to protect. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.

Tiger’s Dream is the conclusion to the epic Tiger’s Curse fantasy romance series that left you breathless.

My Thoughts:

5 years. I have waited 5 years for this book to come out. I've waited 5 years for this book to even get a cover and synopsis and finally, it is here. I'm excited and terrified to read this in the coming year. I just hope that when I finally do get to read it that it'll be worth the wait.

Because You Love to Hate Me Review + Giveaway

Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy
Because You Love to Hate Me
By Ameriie and Various Authors


Leave it to the heroes to save the world--villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage--and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Featuring writing from . . .

Authors: Renée Ahdieh, Ameriie, Soman Chainani, Susan Dennard, Sarah Enni, Marissa Meyer, Cindy Pon, Victoria Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Adam Silvera, Andrew Smith, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Nicola Yoon

BookTubers: Benjamin Alderson (Benjaminoftomes), Sasha Alsberg (abookutopia), Whitney Atkinson (WhittyNovels), Tina Burke (ChristinaReadsYA blog and TheLushables), Catriona Feeney (LittleBookOwl), Jesse George (JessetheReader), Zoë Herdt (readbyzoe), Samantha Lane (Thoughts on Tomes), Sophia Lee (thebookbasement), Raeleen Lemay (padfootandprongs07), Regan Perusse (PeruseProject), Christine Riccio (polandbananasBOOKS), and Steph Sinclair & Kat Kennedy (Cuddlebuggery blog and channel). 

My Thoughts:

Overall, the anthology got an average of 4 stars from me. I don’t read a lot of anthologies as they aren’t really my thing, but I had a blast reading this one. Some stories were better than others, but it was all pretty good.

The Blood of Imriv by Renee Ahdieh

I gave this story 3 stars. It felt almost incomplete, it’s like when an author releases the first two chapters of their upcoming book to get you pumped, but in this case, we don’t even get the rest of the novel. I liked where it was going, though, it had a lot of potential. (Also shout out to Christine for having a hilarious little essay, I absolutely adored it, 10/10 would read again)

Jack by Ameriie

I gave this story 4 stars. I was loving this story up until the end where it completely unnerved me, I feel like I should have expected the ending, but I didn’t and for that, I will applaud the author. Also a very great prompt.

Gwen and Art and Lance by Soman Chainani

I gave this story 3.5 stars. At first, I was expecting it to be a short story in relation to Soman’s Middle-Grade series as Gwen, Lance, and Arthur are a part of that series, but it soon became apparent that it wasn’t set in the same world. I surprised the crap out of me that it wasn’t suitable for children, because like I said before I’ve only ever read his middle-grade work. I can’t say it was bad though, I really enjoyed it.

Shirley & Jim by Susan Dennard. 

I gave this story 5 stars. I couldn’t stop reading and once I finally finished the story I wanted even more. I want a novel series on this. A gender-bent story of Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and James Moriarty is all I need in my life.

The Blessing of Little Wants by Sarah Enni 

I gave this story 3 stars. I’m unimpressed by this one. Yeah, it had potential to be really cool and epic, but it just didn’t have any new ideas or twists on old classics. I could easily forget about this one.

The Sea Witch by Marissa Meyer.

I gave this story 4 stars. Now, this is a story I’m going to remember! I don’t particularly like the sea witch herself, but the premise was cool and it was written really well. 

Beautiful Venom by Cindy Pon

I gave this story 4 Stars. I was definitely kept on the edge of my seat during this story. The underlying messages were so important and I applaud Cindy Son for writing such an amazing story. I still found it absolutely infuriating though. I know life isn’t fair a lot of the times, but I felt like the protagonist just kept getting knocked down and then someone came along and kept kicking her while she was down and then killed her puppy. She got no justice and that’s really the sad reality of our world also.

Death Knell by Victoria Schwab

I gave this story 5 Stars. I have fallen in love with this story. It was beautiful and clever and I could see an entire book being written about it, although, it does sit well as a short. Victoria Schwab is a master of her craft.

Marigold by Samantha Shannon 

I gave this story 4.5 Stars. How could I not love this one? Condescending misogynistic men from the Victorian era being owned by a badass “evil” queen. I’m here for this. 

You, You, It’s All About You by Adam Silvera

I gave this story 4 Stars. This one took a bit of getting used to as it was told in the second person and I’m really not used to that. I do, however, love what Adam Silvera did with this story. The protagonist wasn’t misunderstood or easily manipulated, she knew exactly what she was doing and just when you thought she had a little bit of humanity, it turns out she was tricking you. It was clever and I really enjoyed it.

Julian Breaks Every Rule by Andrew Smith 

I gave this story 4.5 Stars. I feel like the point of this story was for us all to love and relate to Julian Powell despite him being evil as shit, and the author completely succeeded. I loved Julian Powers and I loved his origin story. I would love nothing more than to get an entire saga about his villainy. 

Indigo and Shade by April Genevieve Tucholke 

I gave this story 5 Stars. I hate Gaston. Always have and probably always will, but the way the author changed him around in this book made me not hate him so much. I actually loved this story so much and I wish I could get more of it. Also, just a general observation about the author, she must really love the color purple. In this book the girl's name is Indigo, and in her book Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, her protagonist is name is Violet. I just sorta hope she keeps up this trend in her other works.

Sera by Nicola Yoon

I gave this story 4.5 Stars. While the rest of the villains in this book were all pretty villainous, Sera was the only villain that I felt villainy was embedded in her soul. She felt like the one true villain of this book. Her very presence set people off and she seemed psychopathic. 


If you follow me on social media you may or may not be aware that I have in my possession two copies of BYLTHM. Purely by accident, but either way, I have two and I don't need two copies so I figured I'd have a giveaway for the second book.

  • Must be over 18 or have parental permission
  • The Giveaway is from October 22nd, 2017 to November 22nd, 2017

I Hate Everyone But You Spoiler Free Review

I Hate Everyone But You
I Hate Everyone But You
by Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin


Dear Best Friend,
I can already tell that I will hate everyone but you.
Ava Helmer
(that brunette who won’t leave you alone)

We're still in the same room, you weirdo.
Stop crying.

So begins a series of texts and emails sent between two best friends, Ava and Gen, as they head off to their first semesters of college on opposite sides of the country. From first loves to weird roommates, heartbreak, self-discovery, coming out and mental health, the two best friends will document every moment to each other. But as each changes and grows into her new life, will their friendship be able to survive the distance?

My Thoughts:

I gave this book 4 stars. If you’ve ever had a really close best friend that you shared everything with and had an incredibly strong bond with then this book will resonate with you. The entire novel is witty and clever, you'll never be bored.

Most of the time I hate books written in this format, where you only get the story through two characters texting or emailing each other because I usually feel like I’m missing a lot of the story. That problem wasn’t present here as I felt because these two characters were so close they would tell each other a lot so I could get a feel for them as characters and the people around them.

It was well written and something I couldn’t seem to put down. It was also super realistic, there wasn’t really a moment in this book where I thought to myself “yeah right, like that could actually happen”.

While the story is about the lives of these characters and how they are trying to get through their early adulthood okay, it’s first and foremost about the friendship between these two characters and it’s beautiful.

What I found most relatable was that these people who went in and out of the protagonists’ lives were all people I know. We’ve probably all met the people that are being written in this book. 

Overall, amazing contemporary about friendship and life. Would highly recommend this to those who love a good YA contemporary.

Top 5 Books Featuring Vampires (Adult Romance Version)

This weeks topic for Top 5 Wednesday was Books Featuring the Paranormal creature of your choice so I decided to choose vampires, but since I have another list planned out for a Top 10 Tuesday, I decided to make this one an adult romance edition because it's a little different, to say the least. 

5. Chicagoland Vampires

I started reading this series years ago and I just haven't finished it. I'm maybe halfway through the series, I just got distracted and never continued. One day I will, but until then, I will enjoy the good memories.

4. Black Dagger Brotherhood

I still have not finished this series, but I'm loving it so much. Each story is so different and has tons of different layer, although at times I could say it may have a bit too many layers, it is very good nonetheless.

3. Night Prince Series

This series is so good! I haven't read the fourth book yet, but I will get to it soon enough, I just haven't been in the mood for paranormal lately and have been hooked on Penelope Douglas books, but once I get over that I am going to read the shit out of the fourth book. If you like Jericho Barrons I would highly suggest reading this series.

2. Lothaire

Currently re-reading this one because I was hit with a craving to read it late last night. It is the one that made me decide to choose vampires for this list, in fact. This book is an A+ and I would highly recommend reading it.

1. A Hunger Like No Other

This is by far my favorite book when it comes to mixing adult romances with vampires. As I am a huge fan of both I found this to be a perfect mixture of action and sexiness.

What are some of your favorite books containing paranormal creatures?

The Halloween Book Tag

It's October! it's finally time for some spooky stuff! I'm gonna start off with a fun little tag. Once again, I most definitely was not tagged for this. I'm not sure if the original tag is still up, but it was here is a link to the creator!

1.) Favorite Scary (Must Read) For Halloween?

The Shining by Stephen King. You have to read it in a dark room at midnight using a flashlight. That’s the only way to get the true creepiness.

2.) Scariest Book Cover, Like Ever?

I don’t think most book covers are particularly scary, but one that really creeps me out if Lord of the Flies. Pig heads just aren’t my thing.

3.) If You Could Go Trick-or-Treating With Any Author, Who Would You Pick?

Sarah J. Maas, I just feel like she would tell you really good spooky stories the whole time. It would be a blast.

4.) If You Could Dress Up As Any Bookish Character For Halloween, Who Would You Be?

Hermione Granger. Basic, but something I’ve always wanted to do but still haven’t. I have the brown hair and brown eyes and her wand, I just have to get some robes and I’ll be set.

5.) If You Could Find Anything (From Any Book) In Your Trick-or-Treat Stash, What Would You Hope To Find?

That drink that Jace had in City of Bones that made him strip down naked and run down the street wearing nothing but antlers. Sounds like a good time if you ask me.

6.) In What Fictional World Would You Like To Go Trick-or-Treating?

The Wizarding World obviously, then I could get all kinds of cool wizard candies.

7.) What Book Villain Would You Not Like To Meet Alone In A Dark Alley On Halloween?

Pennywise the Clown. I’m a Gryffindor, so although I would consider myself pretty brave, that all goes out the window when it comes to clowns. Especially Pennywise. 

8.) Would You Rather Dress Up As A Vampire, Zombie, Werewolf, or Shadowhunter?

I always love dressing up as a vampire considering how pale I am in general. It also gives me an excuse to wear a cape. I love capes.

9.) Pick A Candy (Just One) From Harry Potter That You Would Love To Find In Your Stash?

Chocolate Frogs. I would definitely have the biggest card collection.

10.) What Is Your Favorite Halloween Candy?
