Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments                                  ~ Your Favorite Halloween Costume ~


[image error][image error][image error][image error][image error]

Remember when you were a kid and went Trick-or-Treating? Can you think of a favorite costume you had or a character you always wanted to dress-up as? Was it a fairy, a cat, a pirate, a bunny, or Wonder Woman? Or maybe you have one that you dressed your kids or grand-kids in, such as a cute little bumble bee or strawberry.

Rules: Read four (4) books that remind you of your favorite Halloween costumes; it could be an item on the cover – or just be the colors. Be sure to indicate your reasons. Also, read two (2) books of your choice, for a total of six (6) books. Also, please keep track of your read count.

Duration: October 1 through 31, 2012

Spell-It-Out Option
Use a four, five or six letter word that reminds you of October or Halloween and spell it out with the books you read. It could be the character you dressed up as! Just a few suggestions:
Autumn, bats, brown, candle, candy, fall, ghost, ghost, ghoul, gold, leaves, mask, orange, party, pirate, scary, treat, trick, troll, witch, zombie
Use book titles or series names, author’s names (first or last) spell-it-out. You can ignore the first indefinite (“a” “an”) or the first definite (“the”) articles. Special Note: I used all Halloween books for the example below; you do NOT have to do so.

Spell-It-Out Example

C. - Christie, Agatha = Hallowe'en Party
A. - All Souls Trilogy, #1 A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness

Y. - Yasmine Galenorn = Witchling

Thanks for inviting me! I'd love to be part of the romantic board as well, if you'd have me :-) Yes I'm in Sweden - and it is already freezing but very beautiful with the fall colors here.
