Halloween Creatures Book Tag!

It’s that time of the year again where pumpkins are everywhere (just fyi, my team partner and I won the pumpkin carving competition among the interns at my firm and I am low-key proud) and people dress up as all sorts of mystical beings for Halloween. Which is why it’s the perfect time to do the Halloween Creatures Book Tag that I was tagged for by the ever amazing Orang-utan Librarian!

Witch: A magical character or book

  A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1)

I am honestly and unapologetically obsessed with the A Discovery of Witches TV show, so I picked up the book and it has so much magic that unfortunately cannot compete with the wonder that is the show, but I am still reading it …

Werewolf: The perfect book to read at night

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)I am confused … all books can be read at night? The last book I spent reading until somewhat 3 AM though was To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. That’s my answer even if I doubt that’s what this prompt was looking for.

Frankenstein: A book that truly shocked you

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files, #1)There were parts of Sleeping Giants, I will most likely forever think “what the what now??”, especially when it comes to  some of the medical stuff.

The Devil: A dark or evil character

Annihilation (Southern Reach #1)It’s not so much a character as it is a whole strip of land, but Area X gives me some major evil vibes in Annihilation. I have rarely been this fascinated by something like it though. If the other books in the series were available with film tie-in as well, I would have binge-read the other books like there was no tomorrow.

Grim Reaper: A character that never should have died

The Glass Word (Dark Reflections, #3)I don’t even know if anyone knows the Dark Reflections trilogy, but in the final book there is a death that I shall never get over (but since I don’t want to spoil, I won’t name names).

Zombie: A book that made you hungry for more

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)I am pretty sure I am known for loving This Savage Song and it was just one of those books where I found a character I truly and honestly loved – August Flynn! He is my darling and adoptive son forevermore, but his world is also so very intriguing. I would have been down for copious amounts of more books in that setting rather than it just being a duology.

Gargoyle: A character that you would protect at all cost

I am going to refer to the previous answer here and say AUGUST FLYNN once more!

Vampire: A book that sucked the life out of you

This year, I read a book called Sweetbitter and I was so excited for it and the portrayal of the waiting staff at a restaurant but it was dreadful to read. It definitely felt like it took away some years of my life … in a not so great way.

Ghost: A book that still haunts you

The Night CircusContrary to Sweetbitter, this book haunts me in the best of ways – The Night Circus! It’s so magical and beautiful and intricate. You never understand everything that is happening, but you are enamored nonetheless. Can’t wait for some capable people to make this into a movie or show!

Demon: A book that really scared you

I am not even trying to be super dramatic but I honestly cannot think of a single book that really scared me, because then I most likely would have stopped reading it or never picked it up to begin with. I just don’t like being scared. (Annihilation probably came the closest though)

Skeleton: A character you have a bone to pick with

Iron Gold (Red Rising, #4)As much as I adore the entire Red Rising saga, I was just so mad at Darrow in Iron Gold sometimes. That boy was always reckless, but sometimes I just severely doubt his decision making skills. (not that I want to be the one making the decisions in his stead!)

Mummy: A book you would preserve throughout time

MomoIt’s strange that I only ever think of books from my childhood for these kind of questions but I think my answer might just be Momo. It would be so fitting as it deals with how we spend time and might not use it wisely.

Creepy Doll: A cover too scary to look at

Gonna steal the Orang-utan Librarian’s answer here and say it has to be the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #1)

The Monster Mash- It’s fun to be with friends on Halloween! Tag your friends!

Seen as it is already Halloween and I am super late, I am going to leave it up to you if you want to do this tag or not. Consider yourself tagged!

This was my little contribution for Halloween. I hope you enjoyed the post and the monthly wrap-up should follow tomorrow!

  1. Yes, yes, YES to A Discovery of Witches! I’m so glad someone forced me to pick the series up a few months ago! I still haven’t seen the show yet but it’s on my to-watch list!

  2. The Miss Peregrine’s series is a perfect pick for that last question, even though I now how good the books are the covers just really freak me out and for the longest time put me off picking the books up! 😀
    I would love more books set in the same world as This Savage Song. I feel like while the ending for Our Dark Duet closed off August and Kate’s story there’s still so much more to discover, and I want to discover it all, and yes when it comes to haunting books that have stayed with me for a long time there’s nothing more appropriate than The Night Circus. 🙂
    Great post, and great picks for this tag Kat. 🙂 ❤

    • I don’t think you are missing out on the Miss Peregrine books actually. I thought they were boring and iffy in some aspects. But another book set in Verity or with Kate’s friends – that would be the real deal!
      Thanks so much for your comment ❤

  3. Happy belated Halloween, Kat! ❤ This is the perfect tag for the day 😀
    I agree that Miss Peregrine's cover is…. so creepy, it freaks me out every time I look at it haha.
    And YES! Now that I finally read The Night Circus, I can say that too: this book sound be adapted in a movie or a mini series or something, it would turn out SO GOOD.
    And this savage song made me hungry for more as well…. but at the same time, I still haven't picked up the sequel because I am still mad about that spoiler, WHY 😦 I'll read it soon, I want to, but ugh. It feels ruined for me 😦

    • Happy belated Halloween to you as well, Marie! Were there any trick or treaters with you? It was kind of quiet in Berlin and I didn’t even see people dressed up. I expected more somehow haha
      I am still so mad at the person who spoiled you! You can’t put that in a post. It’s just not cool at all!!!!

      • Oh really?? That’s so strange, I would have expected more from a big city like Berlin?
        There were…. like, 4 people total haha, we weren’t expecting more though, there aren’t many trick or treaters around in my small city haha, Halloween isn’t that big of a deal.
        I’m still mad too hahaha, I don’t know if I’ll get over it. I will read the book though, but still, ugh :/

  4. I read A Discovery of Witches years ago and really didn’t like it. But I have heard that the tv show is very well done and I’m considering watching it soon. 🙂 The Night Circus is such a wonderful book! ❤ I seriously need to reread it soon. And I completely agree that the covers of the Miss Peregrine books are creepy to look at!

  5. hehe well you know I’m in the same boat about discovery of witches 😉 hehe yeah I know what you mean- I do most of my reading at night- so I was a bit confused by that question. I loved August Flynn!! hehe fair enough about Darrow 😉 Awesome answers!
