Halloween Creatures Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Halloween is at the end of the week, so what better time is there to do a Halloween-themed book tag? Besides maybe the day of… but I’ll be busy bringing the goblins to get candy that I will definitely be sampling. Speaking of goblins, the tag I’ll be doing today is the Halloween Creatures Book Tag! I was tagged by the wonderful Erika @ And On She Reads ❤ Y’all should definitely go check out her blog because it is an absolute delight! This tag was created by Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward and it seems like it’s gonna be a lot of fun.

That being said, let’s jump in!

The Rules:

The Prompts:

Witch – A Magical Character or Book

Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston

Not only is our titular character, Amari, magical, but this entire book is magic! I fell in love with this book and it’s characters as soon as I read it. It’s such a fun and whimsical story with high stakes and a lot of heart. It also doesn’t shy away from issues of racism, but it doesn’t make the story all about The Struggle. I’m so excited to read the next book in the series when it comes out!

Werewolf – The Perfect Book to Read at Night

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

This book doesn’t make a lick of sense. Well… most of it doesn’t make a lick of sense. But the bits that are actually about the house are not only great, but quite nerve-wracking. I think that’s because the author does a great job of setting up an unsettling and spooky atmosphere. I can only imagine reading it at night would enhance that even more.

Frankenstein – A Book That Truly Shocked You

Changeling by Matt Wesolowski

Funny story with this one. As I was reading it, I had a thought… a guess about the end. But then I dismissed it because I thought it was too wild. Turns out, I was right! You would think that would make this less shocking, but the way my jaw hit the floor when the reveal came around would argue otherwise 😂 This remains my favorite of the Six Stories series so far!
