Which Spooky Creature Are You?

BLOGOWEENPLOGO2Which Spooky Creature Are You?

Sophia @ Bookwyrming Thoughts has created a quiz today to see which spooky creature you would be. However, at the time of writing, the quiz isn’t available yet, so I will be writing what I believe I will get. When the quiz comes out, I will take the quiz and then write about what I actually got as my 13th entry. Yes, my 13th entry! I have completed my level!

Shapeshifter

BLOGOWEENPLOGO2Welcome to Jamsu’s first day hosting Blogoween! Jamsu blogs over at Jamsu Dreams and her prompt for today is all about characters you would want to dress up as for Halloween. However, I decided to pull a twist on today’s prompt, inspired by the prompt title. What if the prompt was all about a creature I could shapeshift into, rather than a dressing up as a character? What creature would I want to shapeshift, even if it would just be for one night?

Halloween Creatures 2.0 Book Tag!

Screen Shot 2018-09-17 at 10.17.49 PM

Happy Halloween!

It is finally October again and after the success of my first original book tag, Halloween Creatures, I am releasing a 2.0 version of it! This version will have new creatures, better prompts, and more fun! After seeing so many bloggers use the tag last year, I saw how much fun everyone had, but also the troubles and confusion the tag originally had. Hopefully with this 2.0 version, the troubles and confusion will be no more. Instead, it will be all about having some spooky fun! Also, thanks to Sam for the Mummy Prompt!

Rules:

  • Answer all prompts.
  • Answer honestly.
  • Tag 1-13 people.
  • Link back to this post. 
  • Remember to credit the creator. (Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward)
  • Have fun!

I will be doing this tag myself to show examples and to count it towards my own Blogoween count. I have provided a blank template of the prompts at the end of this post for easy copying and pasting. As a reminder,  all prompts from Halloween Creatures Tag 1.0 are not allowed on this tag, and vice versa. All prompts stay on their respective versions!

If you are participating in this tag for Blogoween, don’t forget to share your answers on Twitter with #blogoween!

Kate Harker is a girl who isn’t afraid of the dark. She’s a girl who hunts monsters. And she’s good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human. No matter how much he once yearned for it. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.

In Verity, August has become the leader he never wished to be, and in Prosperity, Kate has become the ruthless hunter she knew she could be. When a new monster emerges from the shadows—one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim’s inner demons—it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for.

Something is out there…

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motley group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos.

But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?
