Being a lover of all things supernatural, doing this tag was a no brainer. I originally saw it over on Dreamland Book Blog , but it started on Katytastic’s booktube channel. You can see the video here.
The challenge of the tag is to pick books containing different types of creatures of the night. The creatures are: vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, fairies, demons, angels, and super humans. Here we go!
Vampires and pirates. Vampirates.The whole series was amazing, and a whole lot of fun to read. Twins Conner and Grace are picked up by different pirate ships, and have incredible adventures. The vampires in this book were terrifying and mystifying at the same time. They are definitely my favorite vampire books.
Picking a book about werewolves was a tough one for me, mostly because of all the creatures of the night, werewolves are one of my least favorite. My older brother actually recommended I read this book, and it surprised me. I actually enjoyed it. Dreama (Dree for short) is a very interesting character, and was a lot of fun to read about.
Anna Dressed in Blood was an easy choice. I don’t think I’ve ever read a ghost book quite like it, and probably never will. It is definitely my favorite. There is something about it that keeps me coming back to read it again and again and again (it also doesn’t hurt that it’s printed in red ink!).
Yes, Brooklyn is (very) self-obsessed, but if you finally inherited powers that let you do almost anything (including giving yourself a total makeover), wouldn’t you be? The book was very entertaining, and though it wasn’t (anywhere close to) as good as the Harry Potter books, I picked it because it was fresh and a fun read.
Is there really any other choice? I grew up reading Grimm’s Fairy tales, and it will forever be my favorite fairy tale book. They are all so well writer, and even though many are similar, they all have elements that make them unique and enjoyable.
Of all the books with demons, I picked City of Bones. I thought the book was original and fun to read. I also did really like the movie (despite the bad reviews it received). The world that Cassandra Clare created is realistic and believable, and her characters are pretty awesome, too.
I’m not really sure that Max and her gang qualify as angels, but I’m going to go with it (especially because the first book is called The Angel Experiment). These books are action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat. Every book was as exciting as the last, and I definitely read them all more than once.
Demi-gods count as super humans, right? The Percy Jackson series (and Heroes of Olympus series) are some of my all time favorite books, and this list wouldn’t be complete without them. Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are as entertaining as they are kickass. My childhood would have been so much different without them.
So that’s my list! Anyone who decides to do the tag (or has already done it), feel free to leave a link in the comments! I would love to read it! What are your favorite books featuring creatures of the night?
