This is the improved recreation of Anthony’s original Halloween Creatures tag. Check out his post, he kindly even gave a blank list of the prompts so we can easily copy+paste it! He’s that awesome.
A Magical Character or Book.
It’s Harry Potter. It’s always gonna be Harry Potter.
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.
I’m going to be lazy here and say a book I’ve very recently read: ‘The Strange Casebook’ by Syd Moore. It had a spooky, night-timey atmosphere, but wasn’t so terrifying that I wouldn’t recommend it for a night read alone.
A Book that Truly Shocked You.
‘The Tree of Hands’ by Ruth Rendell. It was… astonishing. But great!
A Dark, Evil Character.
Nicolaos in the first Anita Blake book, Guilty Pleasures. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything more creepy and scary.
A Character that Should Never Have Died.
Fred Weasley. His death is something I’m not sure I’ll ever be over.
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.
‘The Wedding Shroud’ by Elisabeth Storrs. I wanted immediately to read the other two books of the trilogy! See my review here – and yes, I’m still owing you two more reviews…
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.
I honestly don’t know. My favorite characters tend to be the ones that can protect themselves very well!
But well… if I must choose, I’d go with Monsieur Hercule Poirot. He’s such a special, precious little thing with an ego so fragile. I mean… he gets so desperate when hearing any critic! 😀
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.
Laurell K. Hamilton’s Incubus Dreams. It was TERRIBLE! I can’t even… See my rant about it here!
A Book that Still Haunts You.
Hm, that’s not an easy one. For some reason the first book that comes to mind is ‘The Virgin Blue’ by Tracy Chevalier, and I can’t even say why. It’s not really the haunting kind of book, I think. It somehow stayed with me after I read it for the first time, though. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but at the same time I found it weird somehow. I can’t really explain. It had a weird atmosphere that both intrigued and perplexed me.
A Book that Really Scared You.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever been actually scared by a book. I forget myself into the world of the book in my hands often, but I’m not a person to be easily scared.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.
That would be Richard in the Anita Blake series. He’s soooo infuriating!
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.
All books! All books deserve preserving! They’re of value.
A Cover too Scary to Look At.
The cover for one of the editions of ‘A Dark Adapted Eye’ by Ruth Rendell… It’s so creepy with that doll…
The Monster Mash
