The Addams Family Book Tag

By Angela Maria Hart

1. Morticia Addams is the mother and a witch. What is your favorite witch book? 

My immediate reaction was Harry Potter. But, I will restrain myself and say, “Rhymes with Witches.” I posted a BookTube review awhile back and discussed the different elements of the novel that stood out to me. The novel is a cross between the movies “The Craft” and “Mean Girls.”

2. Gomez Addams is a loving father. Who is your favorite fictional dad?

Atticus Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird” is one of my favorite fictional parents in literary history I love him. My honorable mentions include Mr. Bennet from “Pride and Prejudice.” He is an amazing father to his girls, especially Elizabeth.

3.Uncle Fester Addams can generate electricity. What book makes you light up so much that you cannot stop yourself from talking about it?


This is a great question! When I first read “My Life Next Door,” I talked about it for weeks. To be fair, I also talk about “Harry Potter,” “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” and Jane Austen a lot, too.

4. Wednesday Addams is obsessed with death. If you could have killed off a character in any book, who would it have been?

First of all, I want to say, I love Wednesday Addams. I think she is a hysterical and well-done character. Secondly, I got annoyed with America Singer several times in “The Selection” series. I never wanted to kill her, but I did roll my eyes a few times.

5. Pugsley Addams has a vicious nature and plays nasty pranks on everyone. Who is your favorite villain?

I am restraining myself from saying Voldemort. Instead, I will say Mrs. Danvers from “Rebecca.”

6. Lurch is based on Frankenstein and a zombie. What is your favorite adaptation of a story?

There are a number of Jane Austen related books that I have read over the years that were well done. “Longbourn” is an exceptional novel.  

7. Grandmama is an old classic witch. What is your favorite old classic horror book?

I don’t read a lot of classic horror books. My bookshelves tend to be composed of Young Adult, New Adult, Fiction, and academic pieces. However, “Dracula” is a classic “horror” book that I refer to quite often. In regards to the modern day horror genre, I will say “Misery” by Stephen King. The book and movie “Misery” will haunt you.
