#blogoween: Halloween Creatures 2.0 Tag

AH! So excited to be tagged for Halloween Creatures 2.0 Tag in #blogoween! Thanks to Patricia (or should I say “Bat-tricia“?) over at Bookish Geek for tagging me.

If you’re not familiar, Blogoween is month-long blog event hosted by several different bloggers across the blogosphere with a month of prompts specifically celebrating Halloween and fall. There are three tiers to sign up under, and you can check it out here if you’re interesting in learning more.

Witch : a magical character or book

Mildred Hubble from The Worst Witch series of books is the first most magical character that comes to mind for me.

Werewolf: a perfect book to read at night

As a mom of a couple of small goblins, most of my perfect books to read at night are books I read with them. A favorite of ours for this time of year is Little Boo. It’s about a pumpkin seed who wants so badly to be grow up to be spooky, and it’s basically the perfect bedtime story for Halloween. 

Frankenstein: a book that truly shocked you

Shoot the Messenger, for the same reasons that Kesh is the person I chose for the Skeleton category for someone I have a bone to pick with. BIGGEST PLOT TWIST EVER AND I JUST ABOUT PEED MY PANTS.

The Devil: a dark, evil character

…George R. R. Martin.

Grim Reaper: a character that never should have died

No spoilers, but if you’ve read Arrows Fall by Mercedes Lackey, then you know.

Zombie: a book that made you “hungry” for more

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant. I need more killer mermaids, please. Now please. *grabby hands*

The seas did not forgive, and they did not welcome their wayward children home.”

Gargoyle: a character that you would protect at all costs

Any MC written by Sally Thorne.

Vampire: a book that sucked the life out of you

The Grapes of Wrath, because someone forced me to read it and that’s all it’s good for – sucking life.

Ghost: a book that still haunts you

I am haunted by the friendly ghost of Anne of Green Gables. It speaks to me and sometimes random quotes and things come out, and nobody knows what I’m talking about. I suppose there are worse things than to be haunted by the spirit of Anne Shirley. (Boy, she’d sure like to think of her spirit haunting someone long after she’s gone, giving them romantical ideas and suggesting ridiculous names for things. Imagine the scope for the imagination!)

Demon: a book that really scared you

Honestly, I don’t know if there is one. I don’t go in for horror much, and when I do it tends to be stuff I like and an acceptable level of scare-ability… Even Into the Drowning Deep was more like “cooooool!” than “AHHHHH!”

Skeleton: a character you have a bone to pick with

Kesh Lasota from Pippa DaCosta’s Shoot the Messenger. Such utter and total BETRAYAL!

Mummy: a book you would preserve throughout time

Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand forever, even if other people don’t understand my love of this play. 

Creepy doll: a cover too scary to look at

Nope, sorry, I don’t do horror and if the cover is too scary to look at, I’m not looking at it. My Halloween is strictly lil’ round ghosties, happy smiling pumpkins, and candy corn witches. I don’t do the horror gore thrill factor, kthxbye.

The Monster Mash! 

It’s fun to be with friends on Halloween! 

Tag your friends!
