Hey everyone I thought since it's October, and coming up on Halloween I would do a post about books that I like that is creatures we see all the time around Halloween. I got this off of booktube. I don't know who started it but I thought it would be fun to do :)
1. Vampire- I think for this one instead of doing a book I am going to recommend my favorite manga series which is Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino. I don't read a lot of manga but I really like this series. I really like the art in this series, and I just love the story I can't wait to finish reading it. I'm not sure if the series is complete as of yet.
"Yuki Cross has no
memory of her past prior to the moment she was saved from a vampire
attack ten years ago. She was adopted by the headmaster of Cross
Academy, and now works alongside Zero to guard the Academy's secret.
Cross Adademy is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and
the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return
to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to
school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school,
protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class
is full of vampires!"
2. Werewolf- I picked Blood and Chocolate by Anette Curtis Klause. I love this book the cover I think is amazing and I just love the story, I first found this book with I saw the movie, then found out that there was a book and you always have to read the book :). the only bad thing is I preferred the ending to the movie then the book which does not happen very often
relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl
to wolf. At sixteen, she is beautiful and strong, and all the young
wolves are on her tail. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father;
her pack remains leaderless and in disarray, and she feels lost in the
suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for
Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy.
Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack.
He’s fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him.
Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual
nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.
loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose
the pack. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in
either. What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or
3. Zombie- Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. Again I found this book because of the movie and I don't really have much to say because I actually liked the movie better then the book.
"R is a young man with
an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America
destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead
comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can
speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of
wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he
After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while
consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense,
awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human
girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray
landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform
not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between."
4. Ghost- The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade I loved this book. I love the cover and the story is really great. I can't wait to read the rest of the series
in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen
three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star… and newly
I’m the girl you hated in high school. Is it my fault
I was born with it all-good looks, silky blond hair, a hot body, and a
keen sense of what everyone else should not be wearing? But my life
isn’t perfect, especially since I died. Run over by a bus of band
geeks—is there anything more humiliating? As it turns out, yes—watching
your boyfriend and friends move on with life, only days after your
funeral. And you wouldn’t believe what they’re saying about me now that
they think I can’t hear them. To top it off, I’m starting to disappear,
flickering in and out of existence. I don’t know where I go when I’m
gone, but it’s not good. Where is that freaking white light already?
in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for
the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a
I can see, hear, and touch the dead.
Unfortunately, they can also see, hear and touch me. Yeah, because
surviving high school isn’t hard enough already. I’ve done my best to
hide my “gift.” After all, my dad, who shared my ability, killed himself
because of it when I was fifteen. But lately, pretending to be normal
has gotten a lot harder. A new ghost—an anonymous, seething cloud of
negative energy with the capacity to throw me around—is pursuing me with
a vengeance. My mom, who knows nothing about what I can do, is worrying
about the increase in odd incidents, my shrink is tossing around terms
like “temporary confinement for psychiatric evaluation,” and my
principal, who thinks I’m a disruption and a faker, is searching for
every way possible to get rid of me. How many weeks until graduation?"
5. Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster- Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins I love the cover of this book and the story is really well written. I know the author has a spin off from this series that I haven't had a chance to read yet but would really like to
"Three years ago, Sophie
Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few
scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible,
consulting Sophie's estranged father—an elusive European warlock—only
when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a
prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her
punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward
Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of
her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard:
three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a
gorgeous warlock, a creepy tag-along ghost, and a new roommate who
happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus.
Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking
students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares
for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to
destroy all Prodigium, especially her."
6. Fairy/Fae- Tithe by Holly Black, This is my first fairy book that I read and I think that and again I really like the cover I think that is one of the things that draws me to a book is the cover.
"Sixteen-year-old Kaye is
a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city
with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to
her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey
backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power
struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms - a struggle that could very
well mean her death."
7. Demon- Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler. I don't know if this really counts as a demon book but I kind of think it does because this series is about people who because the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse
"“Thou art the Black Rider. Go thee out unto the world.”
Lewis has a black steed, a set of scales, and a new job: she’s been
appointed Famine. How will an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl from the
suburbs fare as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at home:
her constant battle with hunger, and her struggle to hide it from the
people who care about her. But being Famine forces her to go places
where hunger is a painful part of everyday life, and to face the
horrifying effects of her phenomenal power. Can Lisa find a way to
harness that power — and the courage to battle her own inner demons?"
8. Angel- Fallen by Lauren Kate I really liked how this book was written and I really liked the first 2 books in this series but sadly i haven't finished the series and the covers are gorgeous
"What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?
Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her
new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find
out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes
finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep
Get ready to fall . . ."
9. Alien- The Host by Stephenie Meyer, absolutely love this book. for me this book is way better then twilight and I usually don't read alien books at all. Again this book got my attention when I saw they were making it into a movie, but I was very happy that I picked this book up. It was kind of slow for about half of the book but it still is one of my favorite books and I know that she has said she is writing more according to goodreads there is suppose to be 2 more books but I haven't seen anything :(
"Melanie Stryder refuses
to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the
minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. Wanderer, the
invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, didn't expect to find
its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who
still lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she's never
met. Reluctant allies, Wanderer and Melanie set off to search for the
man they both love."
10. Superpowered human- I don't actually have any books that have superpowered humans in it so if u have any recommendations I would love to hear them :)
