Guys and gals! ITS HALLOWEEN YAAAAAAAY. My favourite bloggy holiday!
muhahahhhahahahahaaaaa. (I’m blatantly the most terrifying thing ever)
I’m not doing anything for Halloween this year, even though it’s my first Halloween being 18 *plays small violin*. Instead I’m sitting in watching scary films and eating snacks with my pal (even tho she doesn’t like scary films, muahahah I’m evil). So not all bad! 😀
So for my Halloween post this year I’m doing a witchy brew of Halloween favourites.
First into the bloggy cauldron is…
Give me witches, give me werewolves and vampires, give me demons and ghosts… ALL THE SPOOKS!
So, what are some great halloweeny books??
For witches, Id have to say Heir of Fire! It’s not exactly a scary book but the witches in it are FRIGGIN FANTASTIC! Yay for you Sarah J. Maas! Yay for you! Also there’s the fabulous Harry Potter books! Witches and wizards galore! And also a book I’ve read recently is The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin! It’s been described as Harry Potter meets Narnia, it’s adorable and a great read (review here, an the second book review is coming soon promise!)
(I haven’t read many witchy books! Let me know anymore in the comments and I’ll add them!)
For Werewolves, It’s have to be Darren Shans Demonata series. Oh my life do I just LOVE his books! And that series is AWESOME. It’s kind of Demons and Magicians but also WEREWOLVES, especially the first book. It’s intense and scary and just all around SPOOKTASTIC. (Actually I’ve excited myself too much and I’m gonna go read it now). And ofc if your after less scary, more romance, there is the awesome trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater: Shiver, Linger and Forever.
(Again, please tell me more as my list is pretty short aha!)
For Vampires, I’m thinking The Vampire Academy series (which I haven’t started yet but everyone seems to LOVE). Ooh, and The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda, it’s a little different to the usual vampire books, it took me a while to get into it but it’s actually really enjoyable. Also Darren Shan’s ‘The Saga of Darren Shan’ is vampires and its soooooo good!
For Zombies, I just loved The Enemy Series by Charlie Higson, ooooh its so good! Then theres’ Darren Shan’s Zom-B series (which I haven’t gotten around to yet! Bad Emily!). I think The Girl with all the Gifts is a zombie book, and supposedly really really good aswell! And ooh! A favourite of mine The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy by Carrie Ryan! READ IT READ IT NOW.
Other creepiness, such as The Chronicles of Anceint Darkness by Michelle Paver. Creepy demon bears in an ancient forest. Such an imaginative series, loved it loved it loved it. My dad recommended The Stand by Stephen King sounds super scary, as you would expect from Stephen King.
Next into the bloggy cauldron would have to be
I love love love horror films, they’re my absolute favourite. I love being scared. Zombies are the best, and I love abit of gore. Here’s some of my favourites;
