I found this little tag over on Hardback Hoarder’s channel and thought it would be a super fun tag to do for October. There really aren’t a ton of horror type book tags out there that I haven’t done yet, which is sad! However, I have found a few so keep an eye out for them!
Clever Fox is the original creator of this tag!
1.) What goes bump in the night? Name a book that has legitimately scared you while reading it.
I know a lot of people didn’t find this book all that scary but it terrified me because I am deathly afraid of disjointed walking, any kind of crawling, and ghosts that even slightly resemble Samara from The Ring or the ghost from The Grudge. They terrify me. So of course all of those things are present in this book and while reading it I couldn’t even walk past a room that had its life off!
2.) Jack O’ Lanterns and Classic Costumes: A book you always reach for during Halloween time.
I don’t usually have time to do re-reads but I always attempt re-reading “Slasher Girls & Monster Boys” just because it’s made up of a bunch of fantastically scary short stories which makes it perfect for Halloween reading.
3.) Black Cats and Magic Mirrors: A book you love that is laced with superstition and/or magic.
How about both? “Labyrinth Lost” has a bit of superstition since the main character and her family are brujas (witches) who also happen to perform magic! It’s a wonderful story full of diversity as well.
4.) Witch’s Brew: Favorite witch character in any book/series.
(Besides everyone in the Harry Potter series….)
I really liked Tea from “The Bone Witch” I thought she was pretty likable and her power of necromancy is definitely neat.
5.) Ghouls and Ghosts: A book that still haunts you to this day (good or bad).
I’m still salty about so many things that happened in this book and I know it will continue to haunt me as well!
6.) Haunted Graveyard: You’re all alone in a haunted graveyard, you get ONE book to give you comfort, which is it?
I would want to bring a book that would keep me so distracted I wouldn’t notice all the creepies around me so “Night Film” is perfect for that. This book definitely held my attention in that way!
7.) The Undead: Favorite supernatural creatures to read about (i.e. vampires, zombies, werewolves, etc).
Do witches kind of count? If they do I definitely pick witches but if they don’t I like werewolves the best but I don’t come across too many books that include them.
8.) In the dead of night: Pick a book with a black cover.
The Night Circus! Fabulous book, gorgeous cover that also happens to be black.
Tag! You’re It!
Feel free to do this tag even if I didn’t tag you below!
