Trick or Treat!
It is now my third and final day of my turn hosting Blogoween. This has been so much fun and I hope everyone had a blast doing the first few prompts I have made for this spectacular event. I loved making them and doing them for myself. Now that it is my last day hosting, I do have one final prompt to share. As you already probably know, it has to do with Trick or Treating! Even though Halloween isn’t until the end of the month, who says we can’t do it now? If you need a reminder, here is the prompt in which I shared a couple weeks ago:
Trick or Treat!
Everyone gets to go Trick or Treating again, but now it is now completely book related! Who is in your Trick or Treating group? Where would you like to go Trick or Treating? What places would have the best treats? What did you dress up as? It is a full moon tonight, and the possibilities are endless! How bookish does your spooky night really end up?

Welcome to the 2nd Day of Blogoween! I have decided that my second prompt for this event is going to be just showing off your favorite Halloween and Autumn colored covers. In this prompt, you can gather your favorite covers with Halloween and Autumn colors. Colors acceptable are Orange, Black, Yellow, Red, and Brown. You can use books from your bookshelf, or even images provided online and share in a post. If you use your own books, you can take a photo and share with a post. Props are optional and completely encouraged. All photos created for this prompt can even be shared on Instragram and Twitter with #Blogoween!

It is finally October again and after the success of my first original book tag, Halloween Creatures, I am releasing a 2.0 version of it! This version will have new creatures, better prompts, and more fun! After seeing so many bloggers use the tag last year, I saw how much fun everyone had, but also the troubles and confusion the tag originally had. Hopefully with this 2.0 version, the troubles and confusion will be no more. Instead, it will be all about having some spooky fun! Also, thanks to Sam for the Mummy Prompt!
- Answer all prompts.
- Answer honestly.
- Tag 1-13 people.
- Link back to this post.
- Remember to credit the creator. (Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward)
- Have fun!
I will be doing this tag myself to show examples and to count it towards my own Blogoween count. I have provided a blank template of the prompts at the end of this post for easy copying and pasting. As a reminder, all prompts from Halloween Creatures Tag 1.0 are not allowed on this tag, and vice versa. All prompts stay on their respective versions!
If you are participating in this tag for Blogoween, don’t forget to share your answers on Twitter with #blogoween!

You Know About the Event, You Know About the Prompts.
Do You Even Know What I Am Doing?
Even as a host, I still need to have a Sign Up Post to explain what I will be doing for the event! As you may already know, I am kicking off the event on October 1st with the first of three prompts, which is book tag. I plan on participating for three of my days as host and continue as a Level 1 Participant. I do not plan on doing on 31 days and I know I will be doing more than Level 2, which is the last week of the month. I may do a few more or a few less than 13, but 13 posts is where my focus is for the entire month.
See you next week with the start of the events! Remember to check HERE for the first prompts and share with #Blogoween!
Bad Girls by Alex De Campi, Víctor Santos
Rating: 3 Stars
Length: 224 Pages
Purchase: [Amazon] | [Barnes & Noble]
ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
In this heart-pounding, starkly colored, and visually stunning graphic novel, three women have twelve hours to get out of Cuba with six-million dollars on the night of New Year’s Eve 1958.
Gangster’s moll Carole, jazz singer Taffy, and mambo queen Ana all have their reasons for needing to escape the El Eden Casino in Havana. And on the tumultuous night of New Year’s Eve, when Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista flees the country and the nation falls to Fidel Castro, they get their chance…with the help of six suitcases filled with stolen dirty money. Of course, it’s one thing to get the cash…and quite another to get off the island alive.
From the Eisner-nominated writer Alex de Campi and virtuoso artist Victor Santos, this story of three strong and multifaceted women struggling to leave their pasts behind in a tension-filled getaway is timely, fast-paced, and gripping.

One thing that I should have known when I received my Kindle Fire as a Christmas gift was that I was going to read a lot of good books on the device. I knew I would have to be careful because the Kindle could hold so many books and I was already paying attention eBook sales. I have heard the countless tales of having too many books and/or eBooks, more than anyone could count. I told myself that there was no way that was going to be me. I aimed to keep track of the books I have bought and made sure to read the books as soon as possible. However, this is no longer the case. I now have one of those TBR piles everyone talks about. If you opened up my Kindle, you would noticed that I have over thirty books waiting to be read. I should also you remind you to count the one or two books I have sitting on my bookshelf that I have not read yet. I have now joined the elite club of having too many unread books. What was I going to do now?

Halloween Creatures Tag 2.0
Based on the original 1.0 tag of the same name, 2.0 brings new creatures and new prompts for some of the original creatures. When the tag is released on October 1st, there will be 13 original prompts to follow dedicated to books and characters.
Note: Although this is the same tag, but two different versions, 1.0 is still available to do at anytime. However, I kindly ask that prompts stay on their respective versions and not brought onto the other versions. Here is the official list of the creatures in the new tag if you want to make any special graphics/headers/dividers for your post:
