As it's Halloween today, I wont be tagging anyone, but if you want to play along, do so!
1. The Vampire - A book that sucked out your feels and KILLED THEM. ;)
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Houssini. I was so wrapped up in the lives of Mariam and Laila... Their struggles and their relationships. And oh, the end. I was a sobbing mess. I don't think I could speak for a long time. Utterly heartbreaking.
2. The Witch - A book that cast a spell on you, that you were enchanted with.
The Harry Potter series dominated the lives of my brother and me for a good many years! In between book releases we would imagine all the different ways the plot could develop. I read new books in a 12-hour time limit so my brother didn't have to wait long or get any spoilers! Books of a generation, for sure.
3. The Skeleton - A book that was simple, but worked perfectly.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy. A father and son walk a wasteland. That's it. And I was gripped the whole way through! Dialogue is sparse, action is few and far between... but on so many levels this book was perfect. Mostly, it was the essence of the relationship between the two characters. Its quiet, unspoken beauty.
4. The Werewolf - A book that made you so angry you almost didn't recognize yourself.
Oh god, where do I start?! There are many cliches I could throw this way (Twilight, 50 Shades...) but I think I might have to go with Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I couldn't - and still can't! - fathom the choices made by Katniss at the end of that book!
5. The Zombie - A book that had you reading throughout the night.
Another toughie! Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix was pretty hefty for a 12 hour time limit and probably ended up being a "through-the-night" read! But also parts of The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons were so enrapturing I couldn't put it down. I needed to know what happened to the characters!
