The Halloween Spooktacular Book Tag was originally a reading challenge created by the Blogger Book Nook, a reading community full of bloggers that love to share their favourite books and authors, and have regular discussions. I actually found this tag on An Ocean Glimmer, so make sure you go and check out her answers.
This tag was actually the Blogger Book Nook’s their reading challenge for October 2017(!), but as I love all things spooky and Halloween related, I thought it would be perfect for me.
Halloween Spooktacular Book Tag
Q1) Has a book ever scared you silly? If so, which one was it and would you recommend it?
I’d have to say no… Although I’m always looking for new spooky books to read. So if you have a book in mind that you loved or even one that scared you, let me know in the comments.
Q2) Who is the most terrifying character you’ve ever come across?
Probably Pennywise? Although no book character has really terrified me.
Q3) Zombies, ghosts, or vampires – which are your favourites to read about?
Honestly I haven’t read many books with ghosts in them, in fact the only one that sticks out is Stephen King’s The Shining, and I don’t think I’ve ever read any zombie themed ones, although World War Z is on my TBR (to be read). So I’ll have to say vampires; from Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Stephanie Meyer’s “teen fluff” that is Twilight and the wonderful House of Night series (by PC and Kristen Cast) I’ve read my fair share of vampire themed novels.
Q4) Do you find horror movies or books scarier? Why?
Hmm… I’d have to say books as you’re using your imagination more.
Q5) What scary books would you recommend to someone new to the genre?
Stephen King, obviously, as he’s one of my favourite authors. The House of Night series, or classic horror monster stories like Dracula or Frankenstein are good shouts too.
I hope you enjoyed reading my answers to this tag, and if any Halloween lovers would like to do this one themselves, please feel free. 🎃
