I found time to do another Halloween themed book tag!! I’ve just recently got over some form of a head cold that kept me from reading for about four or five days. Which sucks but I’m happy to be done with it! As you may have noticed, I don’t tend to tag people in my posts but if you’re interested in doing this tag, feel free to say that I tagged you cause in a way I guess I did. I’m tagging everyone who loves Halloween or anyone who loves watching horror movies!
Here are the rules:
- Please credit Princess Royal Reader (or just Royal Reader), as the creator of this tag, and add the rules
- You can use the graphics provided in your post, or you’re welcome to make your own!
- Thank the person(s) who tagged you and let others know of their fabulous blogs
- Tag as many people as you want, be it 1 or 20, it’s entirely up to you!
THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: A BOOK YOU WOULD SAVE WHEN CIVILISATION ENDS?
There’s no way that I could pick one and so um I didn’t because I can change the rules right? I’d save either City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon or A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.
THE VAMPIRE: A BOOK YOU WOULD STAKE THROUGH THE HEART?
Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. I just can’t stand that book and it’s the most recent one that I’ve read that I’ve disliked, to be honest.
THE HAUNTED HOUSE: A BOOK THAT STILL HAUNTS YOU?
I honestly cannot think of anything that would fit this category. I can’t really think of any book that continues to haunt me and that’s a little upsetting.
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER: A BOOK WITH A TWIST YOU DID NOT SEE COMING?
Okay, so I honestly didn’t see the killer coming in Hunting Prince Dracula by Keri Maniscalco. It took me by surprise and was one of the things I loved most about it.
THE CREEPY DOLL: A BOOK THAT SEEMS INNOCENT BUT ISN’T?
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold was a book and movie that seemed innocent but definitely wasn’t innocent at all.
THE MONSTER: A BOOK YOU COULD BARELY TACKLE/DEFEAT?
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte was a book that I wouldn’t have been able to finish if I hadn’t had the audio version of it along with the print copy. There are other books that I struggled to get through because I was in a slump but that is the one that came to mind at the moment.
THE COMEDY-HORROR: A BOOK WITH MIXED GENRES THAT WORKED (OR DIDN’T)?
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephine Perkins was a romantic horror and the two genres didn’t really work well together. I go into more detail in my review, which just so happened to go up a few days ago.
THE (CLICHED) TEEN HORROR: A BOOK YOU FOUND SUPER CLICHED/STEREOTYPICAL?
The Merciless by Danielle Vega was a little cliche but it wasn’t the worst book in the world.
THE DEMONIC POSSESSION: A BOOK SO GRIPPING YOU NEEDED AN EXORCIST TO ESCAPE IT?
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco was such an amazing book (so was the second one) and as of right now, it is the one that comes to mind first when thinking of books that wouldn’t let me stop reading them.
THE SCIENCE FICTION: A PRECIOUS BOOK YOU WOULD PERMANENTLY SACRIFICE TO ALIENS FOR THE GOOD OF MANKIND?
Oh crap, what. That’s not cool. I don’t think I like people that much lol. But I guess that would have to be my copy of Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner because I love it so much.
