Horror Villains Halloween Tag

aka This one is ALL MINE (as far as I know)

 

halloweeeeeen

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!!

 

jason vorhees

A series that just won’t die (seriously, how many books do you need?)

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.

 

 

 

 

chucky

A book that started off cute/fluffy/safe and quickly broke your heart/escalated

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.

 

 

 

 

 

pet sematary

A character that bought his/her headache as cheap as it comes

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.

 

 

 

 

 

fenrir greyback

Favorite hybrid/shifter story

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.

 

 

 

 

ahs

Favorite paranormal/horror anthology

By default, October Country by Ray Bradbury. It’s the best of the ones I’ve read, so….

Please rec me your favorites???

 

 

 

 

 

dracula

Favorite adult vampire/paranormal books

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

freddy krueger

A high fantasy book that you enjoyed

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!

 

 

 

 

the alien

A horror that features a non-human, non-vampire/shifter character

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).

 

 

 

 

 

 

pennywise

A book that scared you beyond words/started your love of the genre

Goosebumps and Fear Street was where it all began. I can still remember staying up on weekends flying through these books. Aaah, the memories.

 

 

 

 

 

 

predator

A character that had a complete turnaround (Predator vs Alien version)

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,

The Princess Sidekick Book Tag

I saw this one on Thrice Read and it looks fuuuuun!

princess tag

 

Mushu from Mulan & Olaf & Sven from Frozen | The Comic Relief –

  • Name your favorite hilarious character or your favorite comedy/funny book

Hands down Jesper from the Six of Crows dualogy. He was such a troublemaker.

 

 

The Seven Dwarfs from Snow White | Favorite Group/Ensemble

The group from the Lunar Chronicles. They fit together so well.

 

 

Pascal from Tangled | The loyal cheerleader chameleon (not a frog, Flynn Rider) –

  • Name a book that started out one way but changed for you

This one is a bit harder for me to decide. I’m torn between Caraval and Will Grayson x2 both of which started off pretty rocky and with little emotional attachment but then ended up growing on me.

 

 

Meeko from Pocahontas | Pocahontas’s sly and sneaky raccoon friend –

  • Name a plot twist that you did not see coming

The ending of With Malice. *insert mind blowing sound effects here* Honestly, shook.

 

 

 

Rajah from Aladdin & Flounder from The Little Mermaid | Gentle with their princess but protective with everyone else –

  • Name your favorite best friend in a novel

Cinder and Iko in the Lunar Chronicles. She kept Cinder grounded and reminded her to have fun every once in a while.

 

 

 

Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, & Chip from Beauty and the Beast | The Musical Bunch –

  • Name a novel where music played a big part or made you want to sing its praises

There are a lot of books that I want to sing their praises, so to make my life easy, I’ll choose a book where music is integral. Eleanor and Park, it was their strongest bond. It was cute even if Rainbow Rowell stomped on my heart with that ending. Hmph.

 

 

 

Maximus from Tangled | The obstacle in Flynn Rider’s way –

  • Name a character that faces a lot of obstacles

I really wanna say Kaz (Six of Crows) but I used this book already *weh*, so instead Karou from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. I swear, everytime she took one step forward there were like ten back. Gah!

 

 

 

 

Hamish, Hubert, & Harris from Brave | Favorite family dynamics in a novel

The Upside of Unrequited – this family was real. They weren’t perfect but they worked and they gave me all the feels.

 

 

 

 

Ray from The Princess and the Frog & 3 Fairies from Sleeping Beauty | The Advice Givers –

  • Book that most impacted your life

Easily Harry Potter. THIS NEEDS NO EXPLANATION!

 

 

 

 

Hei Hei from Moana | Name a character that steals the show

Dorrance from Insomnia (Stephen King) was a strange old man who I just wanted to hug and sit around and listen to him babble on about the things that aren’t visible to all of us.

 

 

 

Gus & Jaq from Cinderella | Opposites Attract –

  • Name your favorite or worst opposite attracts pairing

Daemon and Katie from Obsidion (Jeniffer L. Armentrout). Ugh.

 


Feel free to join in on this one!

Literally My Life (in book titles)

Heeeeeey,

 

It’s book tag time guys. This time, I’m doing a tag that’s been making the rounds on booktube (Jesse the Reader and BooksandLala etc.) and I thought I’d join in cuz it looked like fun.

 

 

The Story of Your Life – Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell) because I belong to all the fandoms and fan all of the things!!!

 

Your Perfect Weekend – Beach House (James Patterson), just give me the ocean and a nice cozy place to enjoy some peace and quiet and I’m golden.

 

Adventure you’d like to go on – Around the World in Eighty Days (Jules Verne). I mean, who wouldn’t want to travel the world? Even better if it’s for free, amirite?!!

 

Your children in book titles – Queen of Hearts (Colleen Oakes) for the name Heart, it’s so unsual but I like it. Gabriel’s Inferno (Sylvain Reynard) for a boy. Idk.

 

Ideal Job – Made You Up (Francesca Zappia) in the sense that I want to write and live in the literary world. Does this even make any sense? I hope so…

 

Place You’d like to Visit – Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide (J. K. Rowling). Duh.

 

Your Love Life – Club Dead (Charlaine Harris) cuz there is no bringing that back to life. Or maybe Slightly Single (Wendy Markham) because I’m confused okay.

 

Question you ask Yourself – Everything, Everything (Nicola Yoon). This might be a cop out, but I’m forever curious and questioning things so I figured this works.

 

Title a Kingdom – Persepolis: The story of a childhood (Marjane Satrapi) idk what kind of kingdom it would be but it sounds futuristic and SFF-esque. Take me there.

 

Title your Band – Tone Deaf (Olivia Rivers). I should not be in charge of musicality. Nope. Nope. Nope.

 

Current Mood – Sleeping Beauty (Elle Lothlorian) Zzzzz…

 

Favorite color – Shattered Blue (Lauren Bird Horowitz). Any shade of blue, any day of the week.

 

YouTube besties – Um…imma just skip this one…

 

2017 so far – It Lives in the Basement (Sahara Foley), my year has been horrid. Ugh. It can only get better, right?

 

Summer plans – Girl Reading (Katie Ward). #CantStopWontStop

 

2017 goals – More Than This (Patrick Ness). This year has been…a let down, at best. So, more please!


This was just a fun little tag, I hope you enjoyed it.

 

I tag YOU!
