I was tagged by the lovely Camyll over @camyllreads. Thanks so much! I had a ton of fun with tag. I found myself pulling out a good chunk of horror novels to answer these questions. I did photograph many non-horror books too. This was a nice mix, and, as always, I loved going through my bookshelf and discovering what I all have back in the nooks and crannies. I present to you The Bedtime Book Tag.
A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU UP ALL NIGHT READING
I received a free copy of this book for review. Little did I know that I would be finishing it at 1 a.m., questioning everything I thought I knew about life. This was a great read, and definitely one that kept me up. If you’re interested in reading my review of this text, click here.
A BOOK THAT MADE YOU SCARED TO SLEEP
Stephen King is always a great author to give you the heebie geebies. This is my favorite novel by him. I also love the film adaptation. Either one could be the cause of my Insomnia. Seriously though, this book gives me the creeps. I should be like Joey on FRIENDS and put it in the freezer (only the Stephen King book he keeps in the freezer is The Shining – another great one to keep you up at night!
A BOOK THAT MADE YOU GO TO SLEEP
I recently received a free copy of this book to review. I was excited to read this, since I was hoping it give me little hints, tips, and tricks on how to improve my productivity. Instead, I got anecdote after anecdote of from rags to riches stories. It got old after about the first 35 pages and quickly became a total snore-fest.
A BOOK THAT LEFT YOU TOSSING AND TURNING ALL NIGHT IN ANTICIPATION FOR ITS RELEASE
I love Ian Doescher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Series. It’s well thought out, original, and so much fun! I am always anticipating how he’s going to structure each new play and especially the illustrations. I’m behind on getting my hands on these because of not having a job, but I am so excited to eventually read the rest of the series.
A BOOK THAT HAS YOUR DREAM BOYFRIEND
Mik from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series. Zuzana and Mik’s relationship literally breathes life into my body. They are so cute. Mik is my ideal boyfriend. He’s respectful, kind, caring, and just flat out adorable. I would love to pluck him off the pages for myself.
A BOOK THAT WOULD BE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE TO LIVE IN
A world where it’s illegal to have books? No thank you. I could not imagine living in a world where firefighters don’t put out fires, but, instead, start them…ON BOOKS! Nope. Nope. Nope.
A BOOK THAT REMINDS YOU OF NIGHTTIME
Of course Dracula reminds me of nighttime. How could it not? Especially since most of the book takes place at night, because, well, you know, vampires and such. Plus, most of the books pictured below this one also remind me of nighttime. A two for one!
A BOOK THAT HAD A NIGHTMARISH CLIFFHANGER
Not just one nightmarish cliffhanger, but loaded with tons of them. This is my favorite compilation of short scary stories. Mainly because I’m partial to the series. This is a series that I’ve been reading since 3rd grade when, believe it or not, my friends and I came across it in the Library of the Lutheran elementary school we went to. This book is filled with tons of great folk tales and urban legends, most with vague, open-ended cliffhangers.
A BOOK THAT YOU ACTUALLY DREAMT ABOUT
I actually had a dream one night that combined Throne of Glass with The Walking Dead. It was super crazy, but I loved it! I honestly think I’m going to write a book inspired by it. An assassin in the zombie apocalypse. Sounds like a great idea to me. I better get on that before any of you steal my idea 😛
A BOOK MONSTER THAT YOU WOULD NOT WANT TO FIND UNDER YOUR BED
It’s a tie between the Acromantula and the Basilisk. I would not like to find either of those hiding under my bed. One would kill me with one look in the eye and the other would kill me out of sheer fright. I cannot believe those horrifying monsters were both introduced in the same book. (“Follow the spiders? Why couldn’t it be follow the butterflies!” – I agree with Ron on that one.)
That was a super fun tag. I guess I really didn’t have that many horror books on this list. Thanks again Camyll for tagging me!
