Halloween Creatures Book Tag

It’s always so awesome when you get tagged for the holiday inspired games in time!  I had to jump this one to the head of the list, just so I could fit it in the week of Halloween!  Thanks so much to Sophie from Beware of the Reader for shooting this my way so I could squeeze it in!  Sophie, you’re wonderful!

All of you, head on over and check out her blog!  You may even see a little of my own Baby Chick.  🙂

I also decided to show off some of her monster type Halloween costumes over the years too.  Enjoy!

A book or character that is magical


The Raven Cycle!  It’s the only series that comes to mind when I say the word ‘magical’.  It’s not the people as much as the world, and the feeling.  Everything about this series is wondrous and magical.


A book or character you can’t wrap your mind around

The Foxhole Court

This book… I just don’t understand my love for it, no matter how hard I try.  Yes, the characters are incredible.  THAT’s what I loved.  The plot though, it was so all over the place, so up and down, so unbelievable, that I should have hated it.  That should have ruined this series for me.  It didn’t.  I love it so much I haven’t really forgotten about it since.  I cannot wrap my mind around it.


A book, series, or author you can’t live without

You know, I feel like I should say Melina Marchetta, or Outlander.  Melina IS my all time favorite author.  Outlander IS my all time favorite book/series.  I also have to be honest with you, and with myself.  Right now, where I’m at in my life (at my age), I can’t live without anything written by TJ Klune.  He’s my go to author.  He’s my autobuy.  He’s my happy place.

A book best read in the middle of the night

Um, I don’t know.  I don’t think I’ve ever read anything that was best to read in the middle of the night.  The only time I read anything in the middle of the night, would be because it was too good to put down.  That could be anything from romance to Dystopia/fantasy.  If I’m not 100% sucked in, I go to sleep.  Sleep is nice.


Zombie 1Zombie 2

A book you picked up for the second time/continued after DNF’ing it


I quit this book at nearly 50%.  I thought it was too slow, and too gory.  Friends convinced me to pick it back up, telling me that I stopped right when it got good.  They were right.  Only a few chapters later I was hooked, and the second half was like a roller coaster ride.  Now it’s one of my favorite Gothic Horror novels.

A book you easily predicted a twist or ending

God Shaped

I feel like a large majority of books are easy to anticipate a twist, or the ending.  Most of the time it doesn’t bother me.  I just feel proud and accomplished that I scoobied out the clues.  With God-Shaped Hole I figured out how it would go, then I hardened my heart and refused to feel anything but annoyed.  In this case, figuring it out did lessen the book for me.

A book that truly shocked you


I wouldn’t say that the story shocked me.  I thought this book was so good, and I loved the twists that the author took, I was just shocked how far she took it.  I think she went to a level that most YA books wouldn’t dare go.  It was bold, and I think that’s what made everyone love it.

A book or character that chilled you to the bone


The Jasper Dent trilogy was truly terrifying.  Barry Lyga did so much research on serial killers, and what makes them tick.  He wrote Billy Dent in a believable way, and Billy Dent scared the crap out of me.

A book that left you hungry

The Death Cure

This was probably my biggest let down.  There have been books I’ve liked less, but this one left such a hole in me because it was the culmination.  It was the end, the climax, the conclusion.  And then it gave me nothing.  No answers.  We started the series with a million questions, right along with Thomas, and when book three concluded we still had all those same questions.

A greedy character

I’d say most any villain out there, right?  Isn’t that a trait of most villains?  To want?  I can’t think of anyone specific, but I think that’s because there are just so many it’s hard to pick only one.


A dark and evil character

Conjuring of Light

How about Osaron, from Shades of Magic.  I think ‘dark’ and ‘evil’ fit him/it to a T.  He’s the Shadow King, afterall.

A book or character that scares you


Pennywise from IT!!  He’s terrifying, and not just because he’s a creepy a$$ clown either.  He feeds you your worse fear, wanting all that terror inside you, before he makes you his meal!  He’s King’s scariest villain, definitely.

Tag 3 or more people to do this tag:

Look, it’s 2 days till Halloween.  I know tagging was in the rules, but there’s not a lot of time left.  If you want to do this, but haven’t gotten tagged yet.  If you think you can squeeze it in, or don’t mind playing after Halloween, I tag YOU!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. Beware Of The Reader

    Thanks for playing Wendy! I loved Alex’s costumes. It was a great idea to add these pictures. And yes I share your opinion about Angelfall. TJ Klune I think I would have guessed that answer 😉


      1. Aw, yeah, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? I wish there were options like that in the comment section of WP. There’s been so many times I’ve wanted to attach something with a comment.
