It’s been ages since I did a tag but my wonderful blog buddie Norrie @Reading Under The Blankie tagged me for an easy one (yay and thank you Norrie!) so here goes:
Thrillers or Supernatural(s)?
Are all of these questions going to be so easy? Thrillers of course, have you seen me review a supernatural novel yet, I think not (actually there was one, I didn’t know it would turn out to be such a story, and I didn’t like it one bit that the whole mystery was resolved by a ghost).
Ghosts or Zombies?
You mean Casper versus those stinking uglies? I’m from a generation raised with the movie Ghost, not The Walking Dead, so of course I choose ghosts, I’m a romantic like that :-).
Vampires or Werewolves?
I’m not sure… don’t werewolves break out of their own skin, isn’t that painful? I’m going to go with vampires.. I think they sleep a lot too so that suits me fine, I like them already. Also all that devouring and stuff seems so manly, I like the subtle way by going to the neck. Yep I’m giving this a lot of thought and will probably continue to think about this topic for the rest of the afternoon. Good thing nobody can hear my thoughts :-).
Witches or Demons?
Ah I think I’d make a cool witch. It makes me think of that tv series Charmed, they could stop time and stuff.. oh there are so many cool possibilities!
Would you rather read a book with 13 chapters or a book with a black cat on the cover?
I actually have a novel with a black cat on the cover to read 🙂 so yes, the second option, no doubt about it. What’s so alluring about a book with 13 chapters anyway?
Would you rather read a spooky book in the dark with only a candle for light or by yourself in a locked brightly lit room?
Let’s keep that light on please! I love a candle-lit room but absolutely not when I’m reading a spooky novel. I’m a wuss and not afraid to admit it ;-).
Would you rather face your worst fears or be trapped in the mind of a killer?
I don’t want to face my fears and I don’t even need to be offered a choice, it’s no no no.. I heard about those people who like to overcome their fears and feel on top of the world when they succeed but I’m not one of them. Let me be trapped in the mind of a killer, it’ll probably all be over sooner.
Would you rather watch a scary movie or read a scary book?
I don’t like scary movies… the few I saw (because guys don’t care about your wellbeing on that front at all) were spent hiding behind a pillow for more than half of the movie. I don’t mind reading a scary book though, it’s easier to tamp down my imagination when reading, when I’m watching there’s no escape.
Would you rather read spooky books during the fall time or all year?
Eh. You mean that one spooky book every year right? Well if I’m going to read one then I choose during fall.
Would you rather read 10 spooky books in October or 10 spooky books all year?
Pff these questions are getting harder by the minute. Difficult choice between getting it over and done with and probably become desensitized with the overdose or take it in slow doses. Hmm, I think I’ll spread those reads after all.
For those of you who can, here are ten (+3 because I’m on a roll) spooky and scary books. Have you read any of them yet?
