The Horror Movie Book Tag

Posted October 26, 2022 by Stephanie in Book Tag / 8 Comments

Hey everyone! πŸ‘‹
I saw this book tag on A Kernel of Nonsense and thought it was perfect to post during spooky season. It’s originally created by Royal Reader.



Zombie apocalypse: a book you would save when civilization ends

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

This is the book of my heart so of course I would save it when civilization ends. Although I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t last long in a zombie apocalypse. πŸ˜‚


Vampire: a book you would stake through the heart

The Elite by Kiera Cass

I actually really enjoyed The Selection when I read it but when I read this second book in the series I absolutely hated it. I loathed the love triangle and pretty much all the characters frustrated me.


Haunted house: a book that still haunts you

For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison

This is book #5 in The Hollows series and it took me a long time to read it after finished #4 because I already knew some things that would be happening. The ending was really sad but so far it’s been my favorite in the series.


Psychological thriller: a book with a twist you did not see coming

House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas

I didn’t particularly love HoSaB but I think we can all agree, at least those of us who have read this book, that it had a really unexpected ending!


Creepy doll: a book that seems innocent but isn’t

The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

That one spicy romance scene took me aback. It wasn’t that I didn’t like it but I hadn’t seen it coming. And then the book ended up being one of my all time favorite reads!


Monster: a book you could barely tackle/defeat

Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

The Outlander books are really long (over 1000 pages each) and Drums of Autumn was the one that almost did me in. I still haven’t found the courage to tackle the next in the series because it was so hard to finish this one.


Comedy-horror: a book with mixed genres that worked (or didn’t)

A Coin for the Ferryman by Megan Edwards

This books is the one coming to mind first when I’m thinking about mixed genres. It’s science fiction mixed with some historical fiction mixed with speculative fiction. And it absolutely worked!


(cliched) Teen horror: a book you found super cliched/stereotyped

River of Shadows by Karina Halle

This isn’t a teen book or anything but nonetheless it was super cliched and stereotyped for me. I really wanted to love it because the premise sounded like something I normally love but it wasn’t meant to be, I guess.


Demonic possession: a book so gripping you needed an exorcist to escape it

Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer

This book gripped me so hard that I bought a hardcover copy while I was still on my first time of reading it as audiobook. I loved it that much and this doesn’t happen a lot to me. It’s also my favorite Brigid Kemmerer book so far!


Science fiction: a precious book you would permanently sacrifice to aliens for the good of mankind

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I really don’t want to sacrifice a precious book to save mankind but if I really had to I’d pick this one. It’s one of my favorite books ever and I’m always recommending it to everyone!


Consider yourself tagged if you see this!

  1. Ohh, this is such a fun tag! Perfect for the upcoming Halloween! Love your answers and I agree with Artemis + the second book in the Selection. The first was pretty good and then the second just took that turn, no. I remember I was just shaking my book and telling America to just PICK a boy. You can’t have both.

  2. Your and I are on the same page, Stephanie, I had that same experience with The Elite . . . Too bad because I really enjoyed The Selection, too πŸ™ Also, you’ll be pleased to know that you piqued my curiosity with Sorcery of Thorns πŸ˜€ And now I’m gonna check a few of the other titles you shared as well, thanks!
