ThursTAG: The Nightmare Before Christmas tag

Good morning!

It is ThursTAG once again! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday – it feels WILD.

I saw this one and thought it was the PERFECT thing to do between Halloween and Christmas… because I can never decide whether I think Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween or Christmas film… so here it is in the between-time!


Sally – Someone Who Loves Someone a Lot and Gets Them in the End

I mean this is probably a prompt that gets a load of SPOILER ALERTS to it. How long is the statute of limitations on spoilers? Let’s just say that the Sorrow duology by Melinda Salisbury ends exactly how I’d want it to in terms of romance.

Jack – A Character That Longs for More

Only because I only recently finished this book is he popping into my head, but Herbie Lemon from the Eerie on Sea books by Thomas H Taylor. No spoilers, but I think Herbie has everything he needs right where he is!

Zero – A Side Kick

The Abi Elphinstone Unmapped Kingdom books have the most amazing sidekicks in them – they’re all so brilliant and hilarious.

Halloweentown – A Book With a Creepy Theme

Here. The whole promise of Scythe freaked me out initially. But my gosh is that series INCREDIBLE. Honestly, if you’ve not read them, please please do.

Oogie Boogie – A Book With a Wicked Villain

Oooh. I love a brilliantly written villain. Someone who instantly pops into my head (and always seems to for this kind of prompt) is Madame Pinchbeck from The Vanishing Trick by Jenni Spangler. She is one of those that will stay with me for a long time.

Christmas Town – A Book That Left You Feeling Warm and Fuzzy

WishYouWas by Alexandra Page. It’s such a LUSH story. It’ll make a lush Christmassy read too!

What’s This? – A Book That Took You by Surprise

The Revelry by Katherine Webber. I wasn’t expecting something so dark and haunting… but my gosh is it EXCEPTIONAL.


And that’s it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by – if you wanna have a go at this, please do! I’d love to read your answers!

Speak to you all soon!
