October is coming and so is all the goodness that comes with it, and after watching Get Out for the first time last night, I’m thinking this is the perfect tag for me to participate in right now. Thanks to The Royal Reader and to Olga’s Oddish Obsessions for tagging me way back when.

On to the tag!
1. The Zombie Apocalypse: When
A book you would save when civilization ends:
When the zombies come and civilization comes to an end as we know it I like to think I have found a way to salvage more then one book to take along on my journey, but if it were to be only one I’d like to think it was one of the books from the Graceling Trilogy or what ever book I was currently reading at the time. Let’s just hope that the zombie apocalypse never happens.
2. The Vampire:
A book you would stake through the heart (in whatever sense):
If by stake through the heart you mean poof out of existence all the copies of, then I would love it if Hitler’s Mien Kampf was simply proofed out of existence or maybe any of DT’s books, anything a racist human being writes that is full of their racist and horrid ideals should be staked honestly.
3. The Haunted House:
A book that still haunts you:
I think that a book that will always haunt me is actually a duo-logy by Cyndy Etler. She wrote the books The Dead Inside and We Can’t Be Friends about her experience inside of a “treatment facility” for her “addiction”. What she writes in those books will always haunt me because it was all real. Everything she writes actually happened to her and that is truly terrifying.
4. The Psychological Thriller:
A book with a twist you did not see coming:
The only psychological thriller I have read was Sharp Objects and I think I wasn’t expecting anything about that book at all. Everything was written to make you squirm in the best of ways.
5. The Creepy Doll:
A book that seems innocent but isn’t:
The only book that comes to mind for this is The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen. It’s not necessarily that it is not innocent, but more that it is much darker and much more intense of a read then you could tell from the cover. I was very taken aback by this book.
6. The Monster:
A book you could barely tackle/defeat (in whatever sense):
When I first started reading Jane Eyre in high school I was having a very hard time a first, it wasn’t until I started listening to it as an audiobook and reading along with it that I really into the book. It definitely saved the whole reading experience for me.
7. The Comedy-Horror:
A book with mixed genres that worked (or didn’t):
The book that comes to mind for this is The Diviners by Libba Bray which is a paranormal historical fiction that really works great. The Diviners was spot on with the 1920’s setting and then all the paranormal happenings. I loved it!
8. The (Cliched) Teen Horror:
A book you found super cliched/stereotypical:
I like to think that I haven’t read to many cliched stories, but I have, but I’m not going to title any of them here because I love them even if it is wrong to.
9. The Demonic Possession:
A book so gripping you needed an exorcist to escape it:
One of the last books I read was A Messy, Beautiful Life and that book, that book took my breath away. I read it in a single morning and it was absolutely breathtaking I couldn’t stop thinking about it all day long after.
10. The Science Fiction:
A precious book you would permanently sacrifice to aliens for the good of mankind:
I would sacrifice The Giver if only so the aliens may learn some compassion from it. (Plus we could still watch the movie and the movie was fantastic so the story would still live on)
I’m going to tag anyone who feels like doing this tag. Only because this one is so old that I don’t know who has done it or not.
Thank you for reading! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below! Also, what is your favorite horror movie?
