A Magical Character or Book.
Nina Zenik from Six of Crows is very magical… I mean, the ability to slow down hearts, choke someone out, make someone pass out, without even touching them? Count me in.
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.
I loved reading this books as a kid, and I even tried a few of the urban legend tricks (I remember trying the one where you do certain things that allow you to see the ghost of a relative). Really creepy artwork, which is a plus.
A Book that Truly Shocked You.
To be quite honest, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading Ink and Bone. I don’t know what it was, entirely, if it was the original setting, or the characters, or the plot. I just became more and more shocked as the book went on.
A Dark, Evil Character.
I’m trying to think of a character from a book/book series that I don’t think is too common or that I’ve talked about a lot in detail, and I think Mr. Tiny from The Saga of Darren Shan would fit the criteria just fine. Just learning about what he’s done as the reader goes throughout the series is really creepy, and I remember being a bit grossed out by him by the end.
A Character that Should Never Have Died.
SPOILERS FOR MOCKINGJAY BY SUZANNE COLLINS AHEAD
Listen. I’m within a quarter of being done with Mockingjay, and all I have to say is that Boggs didn’t have to die. He could have lived a long, happy life, please and thank you, Suzanne Collins.
END OF SPOILERS
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.
The Son of Neptune is the one that got me sucked into this series. The first one was still pretty good, but it wasn’t until this one that I started to eat the whole series up. And it wasn’t because of Percy, either; I just really liked the thought of a Roman camp, and Hazel and Frank were interesting characters. I think it took me less than two weeks to get through the series?
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.
Luna Lovegood deserves protection from all the bullies and everything bad in the world. Just let her have a good group of friends that accepts all of her eccentricities. (also, her and Ginny are totally dating, just saying.)
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.
I have plenty of books that I didn’t like reading this year, but this one from late 2017… This tops all of them. I have so many issues with this book, and I absolutely hated it, to the point that I just ended up hate-reading it.
A Book that Still Haunts You.
#sorrynotsorry to anyone who likes this series, but… Ugh. Every time I think about this book, I practically break out in hives.
A Book that Really Scared You.
I think The Shining was the first book that, when reading it at night, actually scared me. Especially when it really started to get good in the middle and towards the end. Very spooky.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.
Listen. Like I said earlier, at the moment that I’m writing this, I haven’t finished Mockingjay, but dammit, Gale, you need to just stop being….and ass, honestly. I don’t think I’ve been a big fan of him at all throughout the trilogy. Like. At all.
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.
*whispers* Is anyone surprised?
A Cover too Scary to Look At.
For now, I can’t really think of one. Maybe one of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark covers, but I don’t have any outside of that.
The Monster Mash
It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween!
