So we are getting slightly closer to Halloween, my favorite holiday, so I decided to do a Halloween theme book tag. I found this book tag on Melting Pots and Other Calamities website. When I first started seeing the questions for the Halloween Creatures Book Tag, it looked like fun so I decided to do it.
Let’s get spooky!
Witches : A book or character that is magical:
Nathaniel Thorn from Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. I mean he is a warlock after all.
Mummies : A book or character you can’t wrap your mind around:
I guess this would be Red Hill by Jamie McGuire. It was a great book, but I guess I couldn’t wrap my mind around it because to me a Zombie Apocalypses is something of fantasies.
Vampires : A book, series, or author you can’t live without:
A.G. Howard, because I love everything she creates, and I look forward to reading every book that she puts out.
Werewolves : A book best read in the middle of the night:
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones, because I am in the middle of it and zombies are a whole lot creepier when you are reading it in the middle of the night.
Zombies : A book you picked up for the 2nd time/Continued after DNF’ing it:
In all honesty, I haven’t found a book that I have DNF’ed that I have continued. I don’t finish a lot of those books. But a book that I may pick up again that I didn’t finish is The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo.
Ghosts : A book you easily predicted a twist or ending :
I would have to say the book that I kind of predicted the ending to was The Loneliest Girl in The Universe by Lauren James. I will admit the twist I didn’t see coming, but I was kind of able to predict how it would end.
Frankenstein : A book that truly shocked you:
Death in St. Petersburg by Tasha Alexander. When you discover who the killer is, it will leave you reeling because you won’t see it coming.
Skeletons : A book or character that chilled you to the bone:
The Archbishop in Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin. He was one bad man, and the things he did to people left me chilled to the bone.
Ghouls : A book that left you hungry :
I am going to interpret this as left me hungry for more, and that would be House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig. This book was so good that I wanted more and I hope there will be a sequal, because I need it.
Goblins : A greedy character :
The Emperor from Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. He was one of the most selfish characters that I remember ever being created.
Devil : A dark, evil character:
That would be Yakov Yurovsky from Romanov by Nadine Brands. He is based on a real person, who’s hate for the Romanov family lead them all to be executed in a basement. He spared no one, not even the children, and to me that is pure evil.
Grim Reaper : A character you loved/hated that died:
*Now this is going to contain a spoiler, so beware*
Leo’s death in Slayer by Kiersten White had me in tears. I absolutely loved his character as the story went on, and than when he died my heart honestly broke.
Scarecrow : A book or character that scares you:
Cleopatra in The Mummy by Anne Rice was a little scary. Normally I love Cleopatra but when Anne writes her she becomes a creepy mummy who will do anything to live again.
I hope you enjoyed reading my answers, and if you would like to complete this book tag than please do! Please feel free to leave a comment below if you would like to answer a couple of these questions.
See you later my ghouls!
