Top Ten Tuesday- Halloween costumes for characters

Hello! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @ thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will post our lists. We also have the option of doing our own thing. This week, our topic is a Halloween Freebie.  I wanted to have some fun this week, and talk about how my favorite characters would dress if they lived in our world in 2022. As a lover of Critical Roll, I also wanted to characters from that show mixed in. 

1- Lizzy Bennett from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

I’m not sure why, but I see Lizzy as a Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I think it’s because she is similar to Belle in personality, so I feel like that’s the character she would pick. I see her as the Villager Belle, the one that wears blue.  

2- Jane from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane comes from a more gothic story, but I also feel like she would be friends with Lizzy, and it would be so cute of they were Belle and Snow White together 

3- Abby from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Abby was Wonder Woman during a Halloween party scene, so she would be Wonder Woman again. I think Abby would have a lot of fun as Wonder Woman. 

4- Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan

Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series is bold and daring, so I feel like her personality. I think she would be a Zombie Princess with a wild story about how she died. 

5- Imogen from Critical Roll Campaign 3

Imogen is a sorcery class in the campaign so, I see her was a witch. I feel like she would be a witch styled like Into the Woods. See the gif below. I feel like she would love this character because she’s different from your traditional witch character.  

6- Laudna from Critical Roll Campaign 3

I feel like Laudna would be Elvira. Laudna in the main campaign is a dark character, so I feel like she would absolutely be the mistress of the dark. 

7- Fearne from Critical Roll Campaign 3

Fearne is a Faun from the fey wild in the Critical Roll game. Fearne would be a fairy because of her attunement to nature. I feel like she would have fun expressing herself with color and style. 

8- Keyleth from Critical Roll Campaign 1 / The Legends of Vox Machina

I’m making my way through Campaign 1 while I watch the Campaign 3 episodes live every week. Keyleth with her affinity for plants and animals would be a more traditional fairy. While Fearne might have fun with style and color of her costume, Keyleth would be someone who wears a more traditional forest fairy costume. 

9- Percy from Critical Roll Campaign 1 / The Legends of Vox Machina

Percy would be a vampire because he would already have the items he needed for his costume. I also think he would have fun with his make-up, and his hair for the costume that night. 

10- Orym from Critical Roll Campaign 3

Orym is a fighter in Critical Roll. He is caring, so he would be whatever someone in the group needed him to be. Oyrm would be Wolverine from X-Men to have some fun with his costume.  

Top Ten Tuesday- Words in summaries that will make me pick up a book

Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @https://www.thatartsyreadergirl.com/. This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will post our list based on that topic. We also have the option of doing our own thing if we’re not feeling the topic that week. This week our topic is-Favorite Words (This isn’t so much bookish, but I thought it would be fun to share words we love! These could be words that are fun to say, sound funny, mean something great, or make you smile when you read/hear them.). I’m using these as words that will make me want to read a book. 

1- Music

If you’ve been here for a while, you know that I’m a fan of music, and I’ve been singing for a large portion of my life. I love reading about other singers and musicians because I always connect with them. I love seeing how different they are from me, and how music we’re the same because we have music in common.  

2- Theater

Theater is a huge part of my life as well, and I just love reading about fellow actors. I feel that as actors, or people who have acted in shows before, have a special connection, and I love seeing how much we all bond, even when we’re just reading about other actors. 

3- Gaming/streamer

Gaming is a new word for me to look for in books because I only recently started gaming. I’m more than just your causal gamer, because I have a number of games in my collection, and I play games for hours at night, but I’m not one of those people who considers gaming a job,  and I’m not a part of E-sports team or anything like that. I love reading about gamers because I love seeing how other people play games. Each gamer has a different play style, and I love seeing how much we all game differently. I’m not a streamer, but I love watching and reading about streamers. 

4- Books

I know this might be a lot of readers, but I love reading books about my fellow readers because I love seeing what they’re reading. Each reader in books is passionate about books, and how much they love their favorite books and authors. I love seeing the different tastes in books.  

5- Movies

For those that don’t know, I’m also a huge fan of movies, and I love reading about characters who love movies as well. Movies is a very broad word, and I love seeing the different types of movies the characters love. 

6- DND

DND is something that I love. I’m a casual player, but I love seeing what others play, and seeing how they all play DND. I’m more of a watcher, but I want to read more about characters and their DND. 

7- Royalty

I might not be the biggest Fantasy reader, but I love reading about princesses, princes, and other royalty.  I love seeing them get their happy ending and reading about what they all do. 

8- Family

I don’t have that large of a family, so I love reading about families, especially those characters that come from big families. I love seeing all the interactions and personalities interact together.   

9- Friendship

I love reading about Friendships, and found families. I have a group that I consider a found family, and I get the same the of vibes from my interactions with them as well. 

10- Queer

If you’ve been here for a while, you know that I’m a fan of queer novels. I love all the queer characters and their stories.

Top Ten Tuesday-Books with Geographical Locations or Locations in the title

Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. This weekly meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will post our list. This week, our topic is  Books with Geographical Terms in the Title (for example mountain, island, latitude/longitude, ash, bay, beach, border, canyon, cape, city, cliff, coast, country, desert, epicenter, hamlet, highway, jungle, ocean, park, sea, shore, tide, valley, etc. For a great list, click here!) (Submitted by Lisa of Hopewell). I went with more of board use of terms and locations in the titles. 

Books I’ve read

1- The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

This book has been all over the place over the last several years. I read it as part of Blinde Date with a Book at Barnes & Noble. I loved it, and I  might reread it soon. 

2- The Room on the Rue Amelie by Kristin Harmel

While I enjoyed this book, I was a little disappointed in the end. The story took place in France during World War 2, and while it was about a different side of the war, it was still a slow story for me. 

3- Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo

Last Night at the Telegraph was an audiobook I listened to in June of this year. I fell hard for this book early on, and my love for this book kept growing as I listened. I loved Lily and Kath as characters, and I loved their story. 

4- West Side Love Story by Priscilla Oliveras 

I grabbed this from Prime Frist Reads this year. The book was great, and I loved the characters in the story. West Side Love Story also had a sweet romance. 

5- The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser

I had heard of these books for a few years, and I read the content from Karina Yan Glaser on Book Riot. This book was fun, and the family was interesting to read about. 

6-A Very Large Expansive Sea by Tahereh Mafi

I’s had people tell me to read this book over the years thinking that I would enjoy it, After reading this book this year, I really did enjoy it, and I’m so glad I read it. I really enjoyed the main character and the story. 

7- Boulevard of Dreams by Mandy Gonzalez

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I’m a fan of the fearless duology, and I’ve recommended it several times. I enjoyed the second novel as much as the first, and it was about family, and finding yourself just as the first one was. 

8- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

This is a classic that many people read. I read it during Middle-Grade May last year, and I want to reread it. While I enjoyed it, I think I wasn’t really in the mood for the story, and I want to reread it again to see if I enjoy it more. 

9- Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’m a fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid, and this is one of my favorite releases I’ve read by her. I loved the characters and the story this book had.  

Book I have not read yet but is on my TBR

10- Beach Read by Emily Henry

I’ve heard great things about Beach Read. After reading and enjoying People We Meet on Vacation this year,
