Halloween special - Halloween booktag

This is the second post for Halloween special if you haven'r read the first one, click here to go check it out, it's a spooky book review.
I thought that it would have been nice to reply to some bookish questions that actually relate with Halloween. 
I love doing tags and this was totally spot on for this season. 

So this consists on 7 Halloween questions so let's go right into it.

The first question is: curving pumpkin, whats a book that you would curve and set on fire. 
This is easy and difficult at the same time, there are so many books that I didn't like in the past year, so many, I could actually list three.

You have the honor to decide which one of this is the worse. 

The second question is: pick two Characters, one is a trick and the other a treat.
This was not easy at all. 
For a character that is a trick I would go with Sophia in the Fallen series

That ending was not expected, I just hate what she did and the fact that there was no trace in her being as bad as she actually was, her killing Penn had me dead and just awful. 

Image result for as white as milk as red ad blood bookA character that is a treat is from the book As white as Milk as red as blood, if I find this book in English it will be linked here.
I originally read it in Italian and it's just devastating... The main character is so sweet anyways and I loved him so much. 

Candy book: a book that is always sweet.
I know, you all are rolling your eyes right now but a book that I always love to read all the time, that is able to make me forget my problems is... Twilight.
My fourteen year old me still screams when she hears about Twilight and this book is just something that brings up so many memories because that year of my life had been so easy, with no pressures and no bad energies. 

Ghosts: name a character that you'd like to have visit you as a ghost. 
For this one I'm going to say Wilson Smith from 1984, I would never stop to talk to him. 
                                            SPOILER ALERT                                   
So many things happen in that book and we all know the ending, the ending was something so confusing, it would be great to have him telling us what actually happened at the moment of his death
what did he feel because we don't know much about that and what about Julia, was everything that he believed actually real.
Definitely him, there are a lot of things that we can learn from a person like him that lived such a bad situation.

Dressing up: name a character that you want to be for a day.
Image result for waiting for you booksI would like to be Avery from "Waiting for you" I know I said that I hate romance, but at the time that I read this, I loved it so much, and the love story between her and Cam was so sweet and something that I would love to live just for fun, (I have an amazing relationship myself).
This is a book that tries to be relatable and realistic but it really fails on this but still light and sweet to read even if I'm never going to read anything from this author ever again due to some drama that came up.
This is still a book that I recommend if you're looking for a light read. 



Witches and wizards what is your favorite Harry Potter moment. 
That is a huge series, how am I supposed to pick just one moment?
Anyways, I think when Harry gets assigned to Gryffindor, that was a magic moment, I would say that the hole introduction to Hogwarts was amazingly exciting and magic, there was nothing like Harry Potter before Harry Potter. 

Blood and gore: what's a book that was so creepy that you had to take a long break from.
I haven't read that many horror books actually so I am having a really hard time thinking of one. 
Yeah I would say Unwind, I had to stop reading many times just because I had to realize what was going on, if you're interested here is the review for this book, it's actually the spooky book for the Halloween series.

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.
Edit your book, I know averyone has been talking about if editing is useful or not and listen to me, yes it is.
The edito…

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…
