Creature: Ghost/Ghoul

Book: ‘The Diviners’ by Libba Bray

The-Diviners-final

The main ghost in ‘The Diviners’ is called ‘Naughty John Hobbes’. John commits increasingly gruesome murders as part of a sacrificial cult offering.I read this book at night time and I must say that a ghost has never chilled me more than Naughty John Hobbes. He even has a creepy theme song!

Creature: Vampire

Book: ‘The Coldest Girl in Coldtown’ by Holly Black

Unlike ‘The Diviners’, I cannot pick out a singular vampire from ‘The Coldest Girl in Coldtown’ to be my favourite. Instead, I think the vampire inclusive world that Holly Black has managed to create is one of my favourite worlds ever. Never has being a vampire looked so glamorous, mainly due to the media influences in the book; something that reflects with our own world. It also has bloodthirsty bloggers!

3.

Creature: Zombie

Books: ‘The Enemy’ series by Charlie Higson.

‘The Enemy’ series by Charlie Higson is about the cliché world of a zombie apocalypse, but is unique in its own right. In this world the kids aren’t affected by the disease and are left to rule the world  and fight off cannibalistic adults. Now, I haven’t read many other zombie books, but I’m pretty sure this is one of the best anyway…

Creature: Werewolf

Books: ‘The Harry Potter’ series by J.K. Rowling

How is it possible to not choose Remus Lupin as your favourite werewolf character? Not only are the Harry Potter books the best books ever, but Lupin as a character has so many different layers. In the third book we see him as a teacher and mentor to Harry. Toward the end of the series, we see him as a warrior against the Dark Lord. And, my personal favourite, we see him in love with Tonks…

5.

Creature: Faerie

Book: ‘A Court of Thrones of Roses’ by Sarah J Maas

‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’ shows Faeries in a different light to that of many other fantasy books. They are normally fierce, cruel and very, very manipulative. Some of the characters are exactly like this, but some like Lucien and Tamlin aren’t as cold-hearted as the folklore says they should be. Speaking of which, the Faerie folklore is the most intricate and detailed of the ones I’ve looked at.

6.

Creature: Angel

Books: The Hush Hush’ sequence by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Hush,hush

Patch is the main angel character in the ‘Hush Hush’ sequence and I find his character to be rather ironic. This is mainly due to the fact that he is devilishly and at times annoyingly sexy and charming. I dare you to read the books and not fall at least a little in love with Patch. It is quite possible Becca Fitzpatrick has created one of the most desirable book characters ever. Well done you…

7.

Creature: Demons

Books: ‘The Mortal Instruments’ series by Cassandra Clare.

Demons in the world of Shadowhunters go from disgusting and gooey to vindictive and powerful. The are truly vile either way, but I have a lot to thank them for. If they weren’t attacking things, then there would be no need for incredibly handsome Shadowhunters to run around in tight leather outfits… Ahem… And, if Magnus’ father hadn’t impregnated his mother under false pretences, we wouldn’t have Magnus! Of course his mother wouldn’t have killed herself, but then we wouldn’t have had #MALEC. I guess one man’s loss is another man’s gain.

So that is it for this book tag, I hope that if you read it, you enjoyed it.
