aka This one is ALL MINE (as far as I know)
I created this one last Halloween, and never got around to posting it. Idk how come I never posted it, but, I’m doing it now!!
The Southern Vampire Mysteries. Don’t get me wrong, it was a series that I enjoyed while I was reading it, then it just kept grooooowing, and growing. I can’t.
This one can have a couple answers, but my first initial answer is Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I mean, that ending!
Aisde from that I would choose Carry On by Rainbow Rowell or This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab, both of which were slow burns. You go into them expecting a lot to happen, but it doesn’t. Not until you’ve let your guard down.
Jackson Oz of Zoo by James Patterson. I mean, he already KNEW about the changes happening with the animals, and yet he has a PET CHIMPANZEE. I am STILL not over this stupidity.
Full disclosure: I haven’t read very many of these (outside of fanfiction, which I can’t remember half the names of so I can’t rec them here), so my choices are limited. At face value, and the emotions that I remember having while reading this book, I’d have to say Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.
By default, October Country by Ray Bradbury. It’s the best of the ones I’ve read, so….
Please rec me your favorites???
Toss up between Black Dagger Brotherhood by J R Ward and Midnight Breed by Lara Adrian. Both hooooot and action packed. If you want to read about a clan of vampires protecting the world from other vampires, with a heavy helping of sex and romance, this is where you start.
There are so many beautiful options for this one, there’s Heartless and Winter by Marissa Meyer, The Wee Free Men (Discworld) by Terry Pratchet and of course The Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum. The characters, the world, the adventure!
Off Season by Jack Ketchum. My lord does this book give: The Hills Have Eyes type of vibes. Yiiikes. There is so much gore! Soooo much (and I definitely need to see the movie that I heard it was made into).
Goosebumps and Fear Street was where it all began. I can still remember staying up on weekends flying through these books. Aaah, the memories.
The easy answer would be The Darkling (Grisha series), I mean, the way he started the series is NOT the way he enters book two! But there’s also Jamie Lannister and The Hound from GOT (but since I’ve only watched the tv series and not read the book…)
Until next Halloween,
