I was looking for a really great book tag to do today, especially because Spooky Season is in full swing, so when I came across this one, I thought it was absolutely PERFECT, especially since I’m team Rocky Horror for Reading Rivalry this month!
This tag was started on Youtube by Booktuber, Katytastic. For each category listed, you choose a book that features that creature! If I have a favorite character, I’ll let you know!
I’ll be honest – I’m not too much of a Vampire girl. There are very few vampire books I read, so this is probably my favorite of the bunch! Plus, I really love super sassy and suave Camille.
Ok, you caught me, I don’t read many werewolf novels either (it’s just not my cup of tea!) but I really LOVE Maya from the Mortal Instruments, and I just love this series in general! Don’t come for me!
While the infected people in this novel are never *technically* called Zombies….they basically are. I thought that this book was one of the best written books I’ve ever read, especially for a zombie novel, since those tend to be especially cheesy.
A Christmas Carol
Not gonna lie, the ghost of Christmas future scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. It took me a long time to be able to read, listen, or watch anything to do with this novel after that. He was a creepy bastard.
We all know by now that I am a Broadway NUT so I would be remiss if I didn’t include the novel that one of the most iconic musicals was based on for this category. While the musical doesn’t really resemble the book anymore (the book is a whole lot darker but hey, it’s #spookyseason), it still is a work of art and really helps to clarify some of the plot points that happen quickly in the musical.
A Court of Thorns and Roses
Did we really expect that I’d choose anything else for this one? You know me. This is one of my all time favorite books, and I just HAD to include it here! Of course, my favorite Fey is Rhysand. 100% still in love with this novel.
Throne of Glass
While the Valg aren’t *technically* demons like what we normally refer to, they do come from a different world, they’re creatures of death and destruction, they can possess you, and they are referred to several times in the series as demons…so I’m counting them! Absolutely terrifying creatures 0/10 would not like to meet in a dark alley!
The Dark Artifices
Shadowhunters are half angel, so they count! I just realized that I used the entire shadowhunter universe for this list, and I’m not sorry about it. Cassie Claire has my heart and access to my bank account. Sorry not sorry.
Holy cow, this book is fantastic. It’s just beautifully written and created and I’m in love. The aliens in this one are totally evil, so I don’t have a favorite character for you, but you should still check it out because it’s awesome! I’m hoping to read Containment next month and I can’t wait!
I just finished the first novel, and I’m currently reading Godsgrave. Holy cow. This book is really great (contrived, but great, and the author is self-aware, which helps). Mia is perfect to include for a superpowered human during #spookyseason since she can control the dark shadows that surround her.
What books would you have chosen? Let me know in the comments!
