Halloween Creatures 2.0 Book Tag

Hello bookish friends,

Today I thought it would be fun to try a Halloween tag to try to embrace the October Halloween vibes! I wasn't tagged by anybody but I found this tag at The Calico Books!

Here are the rules:

  • answer all prompts
  • answer honestly
  • tag 1 - 13 people
  • link back to this post
  • remember to credit the creator (Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward)
  • Have fun!


a magical character or book

This is one of the most underrated books. I mean, tell me the phrase "regency-era demon hunters" doesn't immediately make you curious!


the perfect book to read at night

Mostly because I remember staying up all night to finish this one


a book that truly shocked you

I still remember the moment I went from hmm okay... to WOW OMG WOW

The Devil

a dark, evil character

The thing is, the most horrifying villains are a bit grayer, in my opinion. But I'm going to go with Jadis/The White Witch.

Grim Reaper

a character that should never have died

I'm going to follow the lead of the tag creator on this one and say every precious Harry Potter character. RIP.


a book that made you hungry for more

The feeling when you need book 3 and book 2 isn't even out yet


a character that you would protect at all costs

Simon from The Mortal Instruments series will always be one of my favorites


a book that sucked the life out of you

No offense to this book, but it was the last book I read in high school and I detested it and it took so much energy to read and make sense of.


a book that still haunts me

Ooh, I'm going to be a little mean! The hype around this book haunts me because I  h a t e d it!


a book that really scared you

This is the only book I remember DNFing because it made me physically nauseous


a character with whom you have a bone to pick

Peter Kavinsky. I really want to like you... but you're kind of a dick. Also I love John Ambrose McClaren.


a book you would preserve throughout time

One of my favorite books as a child, and one of my staff picks today. Amazing, amazing, amazing (and the illustrations spooked me a bit, too!)

Creepy Doll

a cover too scary to look at

Maupassant is also a great spooky Halloween read.

The Monster Mash

tag your friends!

  1. Oh Jadis is bad news- so true! And I love that cover of Fracture- I've only read one Megan Miranda book but I think I have a couple more on my TBR.

    1. After reading Fracture she became an auto-buy kind of author for me! I am a little behind on her latest releases though
