I stumbled upon this tag somewhere (I don’t even remember where), and it seemed both fun and perfect for the month of October! I didn’t actually set out to do a bunch of Halloween-themed posts this month, but I follow try to follow my blogging whims, so here we are.
The original can be found at the ColdTeaAndCrumbs booktube channel, and, as usual, I tag everyone who wants to do the tag :-)
Which are your favorite supernatural/horror/scary characters to read about? (e.g. vampires, werewolves, witches, monsters, serial killers, murderers etc).
If you regularly visit my blog and don’t already know the answer to this question… Lol. In case you really don’t know, I’ll give you a hint: It’s vampires *exaggerated wink* (I’m so good at being subtle, right?!)
Which scene from any book would be your ultimate nightmare to have been part of?
Ummm, well in Fractured, the MC was basically experimented on and had needles injected (hidden in case you’re squeamish) into her eyes. That would pretty much be my nightmare, yeah. Or maybe that scene with the zombie-filled lake in Harry Potter. That scene in the book SERIOUSLY freaked me out as a teen.
If you could visit and explore any one scary or evil setting which would you pick and why?
The real question is, why would I want to visit a scary or evil setting? I don’t even want to read horror, let alone live it. But Halloweentown from The Nightmare Before Christmas would actually be a very cool place to visit (even though it’s not from a book)!
Which book was so frighteningly terrible that you almost fell asleep for eternity trying to finish it?
I never fall asleep during truly terrible books because, when they’re that terrible, I get riled up and aggravated and CAN’T EVEN and just start talking aloud to no one in disbelief at how anyone could write this bad.
Name one book you wish you could pull certain pages out of and swap for others to make it better?
This question is too difficult for me. Next!
If you could turn any ‘bad or evil’ character into a good character, who would you pick and why?
I don’t know that I’d turn any bad character good because then they’d be less interesting. Or there wouldn’t be a story. Maybe I should pick the antagonist for one of my favorite characters so that my favorite won’t have to suffer? No, I’ll be selfish and pick my favorite character in Bella Roccaforte’s Deadly Dreams (formerly INK) series. I won’t say his name since it’s spoiler-ish, but he’s not a good person. He’s selfish and manipulative in a very realistic way. And that’s probably why I find him so interesting. But I feel like he had the potential to be good, if only he’d gone down a different path, and maybe I wouldn’t mind seeing him get some redemption or find his way to a better path before the series ends. (I guess I’ll find out soon since the final book is coming out at the end of October!)
Favorite vampire character?
Let’s be honest, probably like half my favorite characters are vampires, but MARCUS! My favorite is Marcus from Lexi Blake’s Thieves series. Of course it doesn’t hurt that he’s sexy, but he’s also really smart and sweet and loyal and seems like the kind of person you could just stay up all night talking to. He also just has this presence and this air of power and confidence that radiates off him, but without him being a jerk.
Favorite werewolf character?
I actually am not a big shifter fan in general, so I don’t read about them much, but it just so happens that one of my favorite characters is coincidentally a werewolf! And that would be Lupin from Harry Potter<3
Favorite witch character?
It also just so happens that one of my all-time favorite characters is a witch. Admittedly it’s been a while since I read this series, but I do remember that I just absolutely loved the MC, Grateful, from the Knight Games series because of how intelligent and strong-willed she was, how she didn’t wait for things to happen but rather made them happen herself.
Favorite monster character?
Technically this is supposed to be favorite monster, but I feel like all these characters are technically monsters, and that’s just too broad of a choice. So I’ve changed it to favorite mummy, mostly just because I want an excuse to talk about Amon from iZombie. He might be a side character, but he is such a dapper dresser like damn, look at those outfits ;-)
Favorite ghost character?
Jake from How to Date Dead Guys by Ann M. Noser. He started out as such a d*ck, but then he turned out to be really sweet and exactly what Emma needed.
Favorite serial killer/murderer character?
What exactly counts as a murderer for this question? Because I feel like half the characters I read about have killed at least one person or paranormal creature. And not always in self-defense or for feeding. The only legit serial killer I’ve ever read about was Henry in Something Wicked by Carol Oates because Henry was Jack the Ripper at one point in his vampire life. I liked him though, so yeah, I’ll go with him.
