WARNING: I will write spoilers in orange, so don’t read that part if you’re spooked/terrified/frightened/scared by SPOILERS!
A Magical Character or Book.
Sorina from Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody is special: she has the rare ability to create illusions made of flesh and bone and each with a unique personality.
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.
Even though I didn’t enjoy much The Hazel Wood, I recognise how I was chilled while reading this book. It’s dark and bothering in a creepy way.
A Book that Truly Shocked You.
Whoever has read The Vegetarian by Kang Han will always tell you how this book is shocking and revealing. It tells the story of this woman who decides one day to become vegetarian in a prominently meat-eating society and it describes her path towards schizophrenia.
A Dark, Evil Character.
Okay, I’m currently reading The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White and I think Victor perfectly fits the description. Science is good, if you use it to improve human life, but never, ever try to overcome its limits! He’s so scary and his character frightens me.
A Character that Should Never Have Died.
I was so heartbroken while reading about Holland’s death because I would have loved to read more about him! I think he deserved more space in the book and I wanted to read his redemption story.
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.
Well, there are many books but the one which comes to my mind right now is Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi. It’s fast-paced and a Nigerian-inspired book. Plus, its sequel will be released in a few days so I’m particularly psyched for it!
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.
I have so many precious characters, you can’t ask me this!? At the top of my priority list I have Dineas from Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne because he was tortured and suffers of PTSD, while trying to protect his people.
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.
When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore exhausted me. Its flowery language made it difficult to pay attention to the story, I wasn’t like that much the book so I had to DNF it. I hope to pick it up at a later time.
A Book that Still Haunts You.
It’s impossible to narrow it down to one! You are asking the impossible. Darius the Great Is Not Okay is unforgettable in a good way. I can’t stop thinking about this book even though I’m reading other novels right now. And clearly my love for it goes to great lengths because I’m always talking about it!
A Book that Really Scared You.
I’m not easily scared by books so I can’t answer this one. And no, I haven’t read any Stephen King book and I’m not sorry because I don’t like much this genre. I ask for forgiveness.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.
Emma Blue’s character irked me. She was immature throughout the book and always belittled her best friend for being a girl who liked make-up and did video tutorials.
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.
Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman is one of my most favorite books of all time. It’s heartbreaking and I resonated very much with Rumi’s story.
A Cover too Scary to Look At.
I. Just. Like. Covers?! I don’t think I’ve ever come across a creepy cover yet. But I’ll let you know when I do.
The Monster Mash
It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween!
