What if you discovered a literary world you’ve fallen in love with is real? Oh, and you have magical powers and are needed to help save it? Even though this is now an amazing show on Syfy, I still love the magical world Lev Grossman has created. Take a look!

An oldie but goodie. It’s full of tropes and yet, it’s been keeping me up at night. Karou, Zuzana, Kaz – ah, I love everyone and this world!

Check Out My Full Review!

This book is was transformed into the classic film that the horror community enjoys and treasures today. The original book it came from, is just as terrifying and shocking.

Do I really need to state the true obvious villain in this book in the series? *Coughs* Umbridge *Coughs*

Mercutio, Mercutio, MERCUTIO! He is literally my everything. For years, I have been working on a modern day Romeo and Juliet apocalyptic novel and believe me, Mercutio will be avenged! Or at least his new incarnation. He is one of those characters were never should have died, period.

 

Zombie: A Book that Made You “Hunger” For More

Those who are new to my blog, I am not a huge Jane Austen fan. I don’t know what it is about her books. They just never entertained me. Now, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, though, I could not get enough of it! It put me down a path classic crossovers with various monsters (i.e. werewolves, vampires, etc.). Some are well-written, some are not. Much like fairy tale re-tellings, these type of books breathe a whole new life into old novels.

Gargoyle: A Character You Would Protect at All Costs

I would definitely protect Louis, no doubt about it.

Vampire: A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You

This book drained me to the point where I thought I would never cry again. Gage, poor little Gage. This book is extremely dark, but is a reminder that some things should remain buried.

Ghost: A Book that Still Haunts You

This book still haunts me due to the fact that you never know what may happen if you purchase a haunted “collectors” item from the internet. It could be your past coming back to haunt you and cost you your life….It’s a story that will never escape my mind.

Demon: A Book that Really Scared You

The book that inspired the current hit The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix as well as two films, this story is extremely chilling. Shirley Jackson’s entrancing writing drags you into this world, causing you to question what you see, hear, and experience. In the end, you wonder whether or not you are going mad or the main character, Eleanor, is truly the mad one. That, in a nutshell, personally scared me.

Actually, fast-forward to Mockingjay, shall we? Gale abandoning Katniss? Yeah, boy, please.

Mummy: A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time

I will forever want to preserve this book! I have four copies and even one of the horror spins of this novel, making Jane Eyre a vampire slayer. It’s truly a classic you must read at least once!

 

Creepy Doll: A Cover Too Scary to Look At

I have seen others, but this is the least unnerving of all of the others and thought would fly here.

  1. Fantastic answers! Daughter of Smoke and Bone is definitely a perfect book to read at night. And you’re so right about Mercutio! Your book sounds awesome 🙂 I’ve got Heart-Shaped Box on my TBR shelf so I’m excited about it after hearing your thoughts.

    I do have to clarify, though, that I did not create this tag! I wish I had hehe. I don’t actually know who did but if I manage to find out, I will let you know so we can get them the credit they deserve! I appreciate you tagging me though ❤

    1. Oops! I fixed my post. Pick up “Heat-Shaped Box” as soon as you can! For being Stephen King’s son, I have to admit Joe is slightly better than him. I’ve also read “Horns” and it’s just as incredible as “Heart-Shaped Box”. You won’t be disappointed!

      About Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I cannot wait to pick up it’s sequel! It’s like French fries – you cannot have just one! I never want this story to end!

      1. Thanks lovely! I just didn’t want to take credit for someone else’s creation 🙂 I’ve read some of Joe Hill’s short stories so I’m looking forward to a longer novel!

        And you need to read the sequel asap! I love the whole trilogy ❤

    1. Thank you! I can’t believe I didn’t read “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” till now! But it’s better late to the game than never. Jane Eyre is my ultimate favorite novel, it has earned it’s place on the “preserving” shelf!
