It’s finally October and that means it is finally Halloween again! Two years ago, the Halloween Creatures Book Tag was created, but there was also a lot of confusion and troubles with it. Last year, the 2.0 version of the tag was released where it was completed by over 125 bloggers! This year, I’m doing something different and releasing a tag extension with all new creatures! Instead of 13 creatures, this extension will only have 5.
- This extension can be completed with both 1.0 & 2.0 versions of the tag.
- This extension can also be completed on its own.
- 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!

Which 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!

Could you survive a horror movie? I would like to think I could, but in actual reality, probably not. I definitely would be fighting to stay alive, but who would really know? What if it was a horror movie, but with your favorite characters? Who they be able to survive? Sam @ Fictionally Sam wonders about this today for her prompt for Blogoween. However, since I really don’t want to think about the terrible fates some characters have to go through, I am going to flip it and choose two or three characters who would survive instead.

Every Halloween, people are choosing to dress up as bookish characters instead of traditional costumes. This is the topic for today’s Blogoween prompt, created by Anna @ The Bursting Bookshelf. My memory can be good at times, but I can’t recall all the costumes I have ever wore. I am sure I only wore one or two bookish costumes in my entire life.

Here we are again! Another Blogoween post! This is only my 10th entry to the event and I only need 3 more entries to complete my level! Anyways, today is Anna’s (@ The Bursting Bookshelf) turn to host Blogoween and her prompt today is your favorite Halloween movies that are not horror related. This one seems like an easy prompt to do, so why not do it? After all, most of the Halloween movies I watched are not even horror related.

Welcome 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?

It’s the 13th Day of Blogoween! If you have signed up for Level One and have participated on all of the days so far, congratulations, you have completed the level! If not, there is still plenty of time left to focus on more post. This is only my 8th entry, and all my posts I am doing are scattered throughout the entire month.
Today, Lauren has another prompt out at Northern Plunder where she discusses the movies she has seen during her 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days challenge. As I do not really watch horror movies, I decided to use today’s prompt to discuss my all-time favorite horror-related franchise: The Conjuring!

We are almost halfway through Blogoween! How have you been doing on the event so far? As we continue on the 12th day of Blogoween, Lauren @ Northern Plunder has created today’s prompt to be about exploring and recommending your favorite creatures. Lauren has chosen vampires for her topic. However, as vampires are not my favorite, I am choosing to talk about ghosts for my 7th entry! Boo!

Hello everyone! Welcome to the 10th Day of Blogoween and my 6th entry to the event! Today’s prompt. created by Camilla @ Reader in the Attic, is all about local supernatural stories in your area and even your own personal experience that you think deserves their own novel. Luckily for you, I am sharing two stories with you today! The first will be a local story and the second will be a personal experience I had. It’s time to get spooky!
Local Story: (tw, murder, hanging)
A few miles from my home, there is a street that held a nunnery. While the nunnery was active, many tragedies has occurred. The first of many tragedies occurred was that several nuns have been accused of witchcraft and hanged without trial. The house where they practiced their witchcraft began to sink slowly into the earth. Later, during a late night, an inmate from an insane asylum (there’s none around here that I know of) escaped and broke into the the nunnery where many has been killed.
Sometime later during one day, a nun who was walking down the street near the nunnery was struck by a moving vehicle. It is said that the nun flung face first into the same tree where nuns were hanged years before. It is said that if you find the tree, it will bear the markings of the nun’s face who hit the tree face first.
When I was just a child, my family moved into our new home. As one may have experienced, the first couple of nights in a new house can be restless. On the second night, I woke up in the middle of night and found my door was open as my parents normally left doors open during the night. When I looked down the hall, I saw my sister standing against the wall outside her room looking down, with her hair covering her face. I did not know what was wrong, so I jumped out of bed and walked to her. When I got up to her, I said her name and and she looked up. As she looked up, she vanished from thin air and completely disappeared. I never even saw her face. Since not believing in what I just witnessed, I peeked into my sister’s room only to find her sleeping soundly and peacefully. As I recounted what happened during the morning of to my parents, my sister walked in to mention that on the first night, she saw someone similar standing next to the end of her bed. We never have seen the girl again after that.
Spooky, isn’t it? I hope I didn’t scare you to much or send chills down your spine. While I don’t believe that my personal experience is enough for its own novel, perhaps the story of the nuns and the house could be warped into some interesting novel, but it would need a lot of additional details. If you have a spooky local supernatural story or a personal experience that you’re not afraid to share, link back to Camilla’s post and share your answers on Twitter with #blogoween!
