My friend Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward created a halloween creatures book tag which is right up my alley. I was too excited to wait and post this tag. I need a filler post as I’m trying to poke my reading slump.

Witches : A book or character that is magical
Hmm the first book that pops into my head is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle. I read this book a few years ago (yes yes I read it as a young adult). I just remember being so wrapped up in the magic of it all.
Mummies : A book or character you can’t wrap your mind around
I am going to go wth House of Furies by Madeline Roux. I haven’t DNF’d it….(yet) so I can’t really say I hate it. I just found it kind of boring so it lost my interest really fast. The beginning bit is also a bit confusing.
Vampires : A book, series, or author you can’t live without
Rick Riordan for sure simply because I still read his books to this day. I read Percy Jackson in 7th grade. His books bring me a lot of comfort and nostalgia.
Werewolves : A book best read in the middle of the night
A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay because the book is already creepy, but if you read it at night…well you might have nightmares. I am speaking from experience here so just trust me.
Zombies : A book you picked up for the 2nd time/Continued after DNF’ing it
I haven’t DNF’d too many books in my time. I put down books all the time to come back to them later. Night Film by Marisha Pessel is one example of that.
Ghosts : A book you easily predicted a twist or ending
I am gonna go with Princess X by Cherie Priest. I felt like the whole book was a bit predictable so I wasn’t all that surprised by the ending.
Frankenstein : A book that truly shocked you
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood because I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did. I kind of went into it with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was able to really connect with the book and the characters.
Skeletons : A book or character that chilled you to the bone
Marjorie Barrett from A Head Full of Ghosts. That is all I gotta say about this. She was so creepy.
Ghouls : A book that left you hungry
Harry Potter because the food in that book always made me super hungry.
Goblins : A greedy character
I am blanking on this one. I can’t really think of a “greedy” character. I am going to go with the dad from 10 Things I Can See From here because he always rubbed me the wrong way.
Devil : A dark, evil character
Ari from Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich. I am not going to say anything for spoiler reasons.
Grim Reaper : A character you loved/hated that died
I tend to avoid books dealing with death. I haven’t read too many that have had a character that I loved/hated that died. It’s usually a death at the beginning of the book that shapes the character throughout the book.
Scarecrow : A book or character the scares you
I am going to repeat my answer from earlier but Marjorie Barrett was spooky AF in A Head Full of Ghosts.
