I was lacking inspiration to bring my Suntags back to life so I decided to give my friend Inge’s Spooky tag a try!
Now, anyone who knows me is aware I don’t do scary. I’m a wuss. I steer clear of horror movies, I haven’t touched my Stephen King novels in forever, and I prefer to sing to the lyrics of Frozen than watch American Horror Story or whatever the name is. But hey, let’s have fun pretending I’m braver than I really am!
Thrillers or Supernatural(s)?
Thrillers all the way! I do wander into the supernatural side a couple of days a year with books, but I usually keep the genre for my TV shows. Is it less scary? Nope, but I’m a hardcore Buffy fan and a frightening Supernatural watcher… I find thrillers to be much more efficient to scare me with reality!
Ghosts or Zombies?
GHOSTS! What the hell is this craziness about zombies? I don’t like them, I don’t want them, I don’t care about them! At least, you can walk through a ghost, and they don’t always want to kill you. Some are nice! Have you met a zombie who was nice??? Plus, zombies can’t be so scary in books, while ghosts… Hm, ghosts stories!
Vampires or Werewolves?
Again, Buffy fan! And it counts as I have the entire book series. Give me Angel any day. Well, any night. No Twilight, please. I’m not being snob, I just belong to the old vampire tribe, before vampires got popular thanks to Bella…
Witches or Demons?
I’d get the witches on my side to kick some demons ass! Is that a good answer?
Would you rather read a book with 13 chapters or a book with a black cat on the cover?
Both! I am not superstitious! Also, black cats are cute.
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?
By myself in a locked brightly lit room! I don’t care about being locked if there are books! Lock me away! Lose the key! But make sure I have tea and cake, of course.
Would you rather face your worst fears or be trapped in the mind of a killer?
As a very anxious and ‘end of the world is coming’ person, I kinda face my fears quite regularly, but it doesn’t mean I want the worst ones to find me so let’s share a mind with a serial killer and see what it’s made of!
Would you rather watch a scary movie or read a scary book?
The problem with books is that your imagination has no limits so when you read a scary thing, the images you create stay with you and you can’t curse or swear because you created them yourself! At least, with a movie, I can imagine chocking the director and close my eyes knowing it’ll soon be over. To finish a scary book, I have to read it, so torture myself. I’ll go with the movie!
Would you rather read spooky books during the fall time or all year?
All year? Are you insane??? Although my thrillers can be considered spooky by some… But that’s not the question. Fall only, if I can’t escape it.
Would you rather read 10 spooky books in October or 10 spooky books all year?
I would rather forget this question :p I’ll go for ten over 12 months, it means I can try and forget the awfulness and have breaks!!!
Now I’m supposed to give you recommendations for spooky books, but the only one I have in mind is Pet Sematary. Now you know why I can’t pick another King novel…
