EDIT: As you will read, this post was going to be one of thirteen as I attempted to complete Blogoween. But life got in the way and I did no complete any other Blogoween posts. I was going to take this post down, but decided to leave it here for the lols.
Yo creeps! Looky here, it’s day 1 of #blogoween! Look at the new halloween/spooky graphics. Do you like it? If you like it, then… put a ring on it, or something like that. I dunno what you cool kids do these days! And by ‘put a ring on it’ I mean, buy me donuts.
I signed up for Tier 1 – 13 Days of Blogoween. Today is day 1 of my 13 day challenge. You can check out the plans for my other days here. Be sure to check out the #blogoween hashtag on the twitter dot com to keep up with all the other awesome bloggers that are taking part.
Today’s post is the Halloween Creatures 2.0 Book Tag hosted by Anthony at Keep Reading Forward. You can check out his post here.
Hey ho! Let’s go!

A Dark Forest comics by Kate-Mia White. They are difficult to get hold of, and they have some spelling and grammar mistakes throughout, but I love these comics. They are just… magical! Dyageddit? Do ya see what I did there?! I’m not
just a pretty face. The art is… well… look at it. It’s beautiful.
Look, I know it ain’t the greatest story, but the mood is perfect for night time reading.
I went in to this thinking it was a YA vampire story. Oh boy, was I ever wrong?! I really enjoyed it, and there are some extremely shocking scenes throughout. But not in the way you might think. If you haven’t read this, you should.
The Girl in the Well is a truly evil character.
This is a difficult one without giving spoilers. But there is a character death in this, that absolutely sucks. If you are not fussed about spoilers, read my spoiler full post comparing the comic and the tv show. Then give the comic a miss because it also sucks, and instead, watch the show because it’s marvellous.
It was inevitable. One day I will learn to make a list of books and not put a Rebecca Gransden book on there. Today is not that day. After finishing this collection of short stories, I instantly wanted more. There could have been 50 more stories in this and it would not have been enough.
Oh Vasya, I know I don’t speak of you much these days, but you are forever in my heart.
Many people loved this, but I really didn’t. It took a lot of effort for me to get to the end.
Don’t look at me like that. It’s my blog and I can fanboy if I want to. I regularly think about this book, and the characters within. Who even is Tinker?! Sigh. I’ll never know.
I don’t scare easy. I rarely read something that causes me to get scared. I really struggled to answer this question, but the witch in this and some of the things she does freaked me out.
Violet’s mother. I’m not even going to go there right now. But… WHAT A BITCH!
It was one of my first loves. And it was my all time favourite for a long time. I still read this at least once a year. It’s a book I go to when I’m not feeling good. It has a nice, comfortable feeling to it. And therefore, for a wholly selfish reason, it must be preserved throughout time.
Is this even a thing? Do people get scared looking at book covers? Creepy kids are creepy so this was the best I could find.

It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween! Tag Your Friends!
If only there was a group of blogging folk that I bloody love reading that I could list here.
You don’t need to be taking part in blogoween to do this. You can just do it as a regular perfect October tag.
That was a tough tag. I really struggled with some of them, but it was fun and with the help of hopes and wishes and puppy dog tails, (and my Goodreads read list) I did it
Join me tomorrow for my second blogoween post. Anyway, I’m off to find a super scary book that actually scares me. Until next time, Rest in Pieces and Labefaction!
