I want to start off saying – I hate horror movies. I’ve watched a grand total of one, and it was literally out of the corner of my eye. I can’t do them, because this Book Princess can’t even deal with the lameness that is Ghost Hunters without getting scared. But I can surprisingly handle ghost stories and horror books decently? Decently depends on some books because I still get paranoid as heck.
Anyway, Princess @ The Royal Reader tagged me for her original book tag, and I was so excited despite my hatred of horror movies. She used such creativity for this, and her whole blog is full of bookish fun! Check out her original post here, and check out the rest of her fun blog!
I would also love to thank Olga @ Olga’s Oddish Addiction for tagging me as well! Her posts are always soo much fun, and this was no exception! Check out her post here, and make sure to check out the rest of her blog because it’s hilarious and full of some great YA book fun. 😀
Let’s begin, and let’s hope this doesn’t turn out to be a horror movie!
. The Zombie Apocalypse:
A book you would save when civilization ends:
Ahhhhhh there would be so many that I would want to be saved! I would probably…ughhhhhhh. I don’t know! This is too hard. I’m so overthinking this. Okay, I’m just going to say The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller because it is a cherished favorite and it’s the first of them that came into my head.
2. The Vampire:
A book you would stake through the heart (in whatever sense):
Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandiera always gets me riled up. But I would say that there were a few badly done vampire books after Twilight that did deserve to be staked.
3. The Haunted House:
A book that still haunts you:
Crooked Kingdom. D: I just keep thinking about how it should have been longerrrrr and the whole forever crying thing. It was evil, Ms. Bardugo, just evil.
4. The Psychological Thriller:
A book with a twist you did not see coming:
Um, see the above for the answer. I thought everything was fine and dandy and then BAM! The forever crying happened.
5. The Creepy Doll:
A book that seems innocent but isn’t:
Look at this cover. Does this seem like it would involve a crazy, twisty mystery? Okay, it has an oncoming storm and the word, “missing” in it, but STILL. There’s a ferris wheel! I wasn’t expecting the craziness that happened in this book from the cover.
Also, I really hate dolls.
6. The Monster:
A book you could barely tackle/defeat (in whatever sense):
Um, Kiss Cam by Kiara London. I literally read 3 pages and was like, nope, not happening. And that made me super sad because it had such a cute cover and seemed like an adorable premise.
7. The Comedy-Horror:
A book with mixed genres that worked (or didn’t):
My Lady Jane! It was this weird mix of fantasy, Tudor time historical fiction, and straight up comedy. It wasn’t supposed to work, but it did amazingly, and I was so impressed. It was so The Princess Bride, and I would definitely recommend!
8. The (Cliched) Teen Horror:
A book you found super cliched/stereotypical:
The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins. It just didn’t feel like anything new sadly.
9. The Demonic Possession:
A book so gripping you needed an exorcist to escape it:
Well, my last binge read was By Your Side by Kasie West. I couldn’t stop reading it even though I totally needed to be doing other things.
And 10. The Science Fiction:
A precious book you would permanently sacrifice to aliens for the good of mankind:
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer…so the aliens could see how we could kick their butt if they use crazy Lunar mind control. I’m teaching them early on. You’re welcome.
This tag was so much fun, and Princess created such a unique one! Now, let’s pass along some of the tag fun! As always, feel free not to do it if you’re not feeling it or have already done it:
