Spooky Scary Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday(91)

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.

    Thanks for the tag. I am just not a Chupeco fan for some reason. I am hoping to be creeped out when I read In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. I have yet to find a really creepy read.

    This is an awesome tag. Thanks for tagging me in it πŸ˜€
    I’ve never read The Girl from the Well before, but from what you said, I don’t think I’m going to pick it up any time soon. I’m too much of a scaredy cat XD

      No problem Jessica!
      The Girl from the Well is something I want to recommend to everyone but on the other hand I feel mean because I thought it was pretty scary and I don’t want people to have nightmares, haha! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Larkin!
      I SERIOUSLY need to get a copy of Golden Son because I want to finish that trilogy but I have a hard time justifying buying more books at the moment when I have so many….*hides in box of shame*

        Haha! I definitely know that feeling. Just know that when you do get to reading it – it will blow your mind! πŸ˜‰

    Yay! Thanks so much for tagging me, Heather 🌸
    I don’t really read that many creepy books, so this might be a bit hard! I still really want to read The Bone Witch and Red Rising, but I don’t like the fact that you were salty about numerous things, that usually means trouble!

      No problem Michelle!
      I would looooove to hear your thoughts on either The Bone Witch or Red Rising! If it makes sense I’m salty in a good way with Red Rising, haha, plenty of twists in that book but it was thrilling to read through so I’m not too mad! πŸ™‚
