Halloween Song Book Tag!

Hey guys! As it’s October, which is basically Halloween month I’m sharing a Halloween book tag today!

I found it on the blog Adventures with a Side of Espresso, but it was created by booktuber A Beautiful Chaos of Books. She also created a playlist for the tag on Spotify based on the songs included in the tag.

Let us begin…

1 – THRILLER: A BOOK THAT WAS AN ABSOLUTE PAGE TURNER

The Woman In The Water by Kelly Heard. I absolutely loved this book, I couldn’t put it down and it had this eerie vibe that would be perfect for a Halloween read!

2 – SOMEBODY’S WATCHING ME: A BOOK THAT GAVE YOU THE SERIOUS CREEPS

The Shining by Stephen King. I have read this book several times and every time it creeps me the fuck out. Honestly.

3 – VAMPIRE: A BOOK YOU HATED SO MUCH IT WAS SOUL SUCKING, I.E INCREDIBLY TEDIOUS TO GET THROUGH

A recent one I read was The Devil’s Staircase by Helen Fitzgerald, it was a real slog to read and I wish I had stuck with my earlier idea to DNFR it. Also, a special mention for a book called Unnatural which I did DNF, at around 22% but honestly, it felt like 202% through, it was a real drag.

4 – THIS IS HALLOWEEN: YOUR FAVOURITE TREAT/SNACK TO EAT WHILE READING

I try not to eat while I’m reading because I don’t want to get anything on my books or my kindle. but I do love a good biscuit or cookie while I’m reading, when I fancy a treat!

5 – TIME WARP: “LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN.” WHAT BOOK OR BOOKS DO YOU LIKE TO RETURN TO AT THIS TIME OF YEAR?

Anything by Stephen King, I will re-read his books over and over again during Halloween. And any of the Goosebumps books, they’re perfect for reminding me of Halloween’s gone by!

6 – HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF: A BOOK YOU LOVED SO MUCH, YOU DEVOURED IT

I absolutely powered my way through Unethical by Marla L Anderson, honestly, it was SO GOOD that I couldn’t put it down. I loved it sooooo much.

7 – THE ADDAMS FAMILY: A BOOK FEATURING A DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY

Do I need to look any further than the PJO series?!

8 – SCARY MONSTERS (AND SUPER CREEPS): A BOOK GENRE THAT YOU ARE SCARED OR INTIMIDATED TO PICK UP

I am absolutely terrified by fantasy books, I mean there are so many out there? And they’re all really long? And like 10 book series? With worlds entirely crafted by words? And they have maps in the books? There is just a lot to take in and they actually make me feel kind of anxious.

9 – TWILIGHT ZONE: A BOOK WITH A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE PREMISE

Abra-Cadaver by Matt Drabble. I have never read anything like it before, and I don’t think I ever will again, it was an incredibly clever premise.

Let me know what you think of my answers and any that you would pick for the different song titles!

Until next time, Em xxx
