Witch – a magical character or book.
There is only one book I can mention for this and that’s Harry Potter. For me – there is no other book that can contend with the magical story and characters in this series.
Werewolf – the perfect book to read at night.
If you haven’t read Caraval (what are you waiting for?!) the game takes place at night. That reason alone makes this the perfect book for this one.
My review is here if you’re interested!
Frankenstein – a book that really shocked you.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman shocked me. Not in the sense that there were plot twists – but because of the content of the book. This book is set in a dystopian future where parents with a child between age 13 and 18 have the right to sign an order to have their child ‘unwound’. This is where they are taken to camps to have their body parts harvested for later use. I’m not a mom yet – but I could never imagine signing over my child’s life. Urgh.
The Devil – a Dark, evil character.
Lord Voldemort – A.K.A most terrifying villain ever.
Grim reaper – a character that never should have died.
Fred Weasley. Every. Single. Time.
Zombie – a book that made you hungry for more.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. Luckily I read the first book in this series whilst 3 of the books were released, so I got to binge read those. However, it has left me hungry for more and the massive gaps between books makes me feel I’m going to be old and grey by the time this series is finished.
Gargoyle – a character you’d protect at all costs.
Dobby from Harry Potter. Even though he didn’t exactly go about it in a good way at first – all Dobby ever wanted to do was protect Harry. He just got his freedom – loving life – and then boom, he was gone. My heart breaks every time I think about it and I would protect him with my life.
Vampire – a book that sucked the life out of you.
Anything by John Green. I’ve tried to read so many of his books but they just aren’t for me. They’re not bad books – in fact many people love them – but it was exhausting for me to read every sentence and I just had to stop.
Ghost – a book that still haunts you.
My Real Name is Hanna by Tara Lynn Masih. I read this book not long ago (review here if you’re interested) and it was such a beautiful coming of age story whilst surviving world war 2.
Skeleton – a character you’d have a bone to pick with.
Nathan from the Half Bad trilogy. He was so mean to Gabriel and I spent so much of this series furious with the way he treated him.
My review is here if you’d like to read it!
Demon – a book that really scared you.
Asylum trilogy by Amy Cross. This book series seriously freaked the living daylights out of me. It also has a fantastic plot line!
Mummy – a book you’d preserve throughout time.
Now I was going to say Harry Potter again. However, because I’ve already mentioned that a lot I’m going to say We Are Okay by Nina LaCour.
Creepy doll – a cover too scary to look at.
I haven’t actually read this book yet – but I came across The House of Dead Maids by Claire B. Dunkle a few months ago and it’s legit probably the creepiest cover I’ve ever seen.
