I wasn’t tagged by anyone for this tag but I kind of dig the horror genre so I really wanted to do this book tag.

21473404The Zombie Apocalypse – A book you would save when civilization ends?

Okay that’s kind of hard because I really love a lot books. I would probably save The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan. This book was what got me back into reading at full force when I was younger. I went through a stage of not reading much in my sixth and seventh grade year so I picked up this series after I watched the movie in seventh grade. It really played a big part in my life for greek mythology as well.

The Vampire – A book you would stake through the heart?43448

Ugh so for this one it would have to be Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. I tried to attempt to read this book a few months ago. I tried really hard to enjoy it since everyone I knew liked it. The so called plot twist in the novel made me sick to my stomach so I have never been able to finish it. I will say that if you aren’t into gross plots then I highly advise you to avoid this book. I am not going to spoil the plot twist, but it honestly made me want to burn my copy of the book.

421416The Haunted House – A book that still haunts you?

Black Creek Crossing by John Saul still haunts me to this day. My mom suggested John Saul because he is one of her favorite authors. I was devouring books at the time so I was in need of a new author. His books are all horror based which I really enjoyed. This book actually kept me up at night. I think it has to do with the way it ended because I was sort of expecting it, but I also didn’t think the one thing that happened was going to happen.

The Psychological Thriller – A book with a twist you did not see coming?8130469

John Saul is being mentioned twice? Okay like I said I devoured his books like no tomorrow. I read every single one that the library had since I wasn’t living with my mom at the time. House of Reckoning honestly left me with a ton of questions. I didn’t expect the book to take the turn it did. I remember sitting there just staring at the book going “What the F just happened?” and honestly I kind of enjoy that aspect of books.

16143347The Creepy Doll – A book that seems innocent but isn’t?

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart is the book I pick for this question simply because I honestly thought it was supposed to be a cute contemporary book. Boy was I wrong once I started reading it because it took me on a roller coaster. I know this book isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the plot twists. This book might seem super cute, but it’s actually quite dark.

The Monster – A book You Could Barely Tackle/Defeat?6408862

I have to say this would be Stolen by Lucy Christopher because it took me a while to get through this book. There were like two or three things I liked/appreciated from the book, but the overall plot line really bothered me. I didn’t appreciate the fact that she started to “fall” for her captor. I get it. You are stranded out in god knows where with him, but still keep your guard up.

24396858The Comedy – Horror: A book with mixed genres that worked (or didn’t)?

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich definitely falls into this category for me. It was a thriller, mystery, paranormal, and young adult novel that had like video clip recordings, patient’s documents, and etc included throughout the novel. I feel like the author did a really good job by adding in the paranormal aspect to the book. I also liked the pages that weren’t set up like a normal novel. It’s definitely worth the read if you are into creepy books with a mixed media aspect.

The Cliched Teen Horror – A book you found super cliched/stereotypical? 12507214

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake was definitely that book for me. The first book of the dulogy was amazing. It added a bit of a unique twist to it. Well the second book kind of flopped. There was a lot of tropes in the novel that I did not enjoy. I was about 200 pages into the book and I couldn’t finish it because I was bored out of my mind.

19351043.jpgThe Demonic Possession – A book so gripping you needed an exorcist to escape it?

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson because I literally could not put this down. I would get so upset when I kept getting interrupted by my mom or my dog when I was reading this. I am a bit of a graphic novel fanatic so I was pleased to read this one. I just love the characters in this story. They are all fantastic, heart warming, and funny. It is definitely a book you should check out if you are looking to get into graphic novels. It’s perfect for people who don’t want to dive into the bigger stories in the graphic novel universe.

The Science Fiction – A precious book book you would permanently sacrifice for the good of mankind? 5129

Oh man this one was actually pretty hard because I love all of my books. I think I would sacrifice Brave New World by Aldous Huxley because it is on my all time favorite classic. I think the aliens would quite enjoy the book. It might even give them ideas of how to deal with their own race though it might be problematic for us if they decide to take over. I am also sure I’m like the only one who really enjoys Brave New World anyways so it is not like anyone would miss it too much besides me.

I’m not sure who has been tagged for this so I’m just going to tag a few people that I enjoy seeing content from for this : bookandwords, toomuchofabooknerd, bionic book worm, & anyone else who wants to do this!

  1. I love your answers! And oh my god, someone agrees with me about Flowers in the Attic! I was repulsed by everything about that book, and I can usually handle macabre/sinister things well. And I find it interesting that you chose Stolen as a book you could barely tackle; I completely understand your point of view despite the fact that I love the book. It was an interesting exploration of Stockholm Syndrome, but definitely hard to read. Thanks for taking part in the tag! 🙂 🙂

    1. It made me a bit sad I didn’t enjoy Flowers in the Attic, but I just couldn’t bring myself to finish it. My friend was like “You will love it” and I’m like “Uh no”. Stolen was a good book but I think the relationship between the two was what bothered me.

      1. Same to be honest, but I just felt….strange reading it. I read the sequels too for good measure and felt even more disturbed, so it’s safe to say that the series and I will never get along 🙂 And I agree that the relationship in Stolen was seriously weird, but I’m personally fascinated with Stockholm Syndrome so I found it interesting to see the differences between what the characters experienced, and what society told her she had experienced as a kidnapped woman. Sorry for the essay, I just rarely hear people talk about this book! 😀

      1. I’m so excited for you. Flowers in the Attic might have not been my cup of tea, but I know a lot of people who like it. I highly recommend Black Creek Crossing if it’s your first John Saul book.
