Today we have the Creatures of the Night Tag, where you list your favourite use of each type of character from a book and tag five more people! Thanks so much to My Addiction: Books of this tag! Let’s get started.
(When I was answering this I realised how few books I have read with some of these creatures in them. Ugh, I need to read more!)
I have read an awful lot of vampire books, but my first vampire book will always be my favourite one, no matter how much hate it gets. That’s all for you, Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer! People always complain that it’s not what vampires are supposed to be like, but then again, aren’t we always looking for something original and different as well? Meyer manages to do it here!
Oh man, I have not read nearly enough werewolf books. Only two, Twilight and City of Bones. I will have to go with City of Bones here
in fear of being repetitive because I really like how they were
portrayed here. And of course, I loved the pack characters and their own story.
Besides, I loved all the characters in that series.
Again, I have only read one AH-MAZING zombie book, even though I have more on my TBR. Either way, I think Jessie from Dying for a Living, by Kory M Shrum was wonderful. She was an amazing character, who was strong and funny, and had a lot of important choices to make. Again, Kory used the idea of zombies in a really unique way. I think I have a thing for original ideas.
Ghosts? Um, I remember there being one in one of the books in the Evernight series by Claudia Gray, but I remember not liking it too much. I also recently finished Tortured Souls by Kimber Leigh Wheaton which ghosts… but I didn’t like that book much.
Oh! About five years ago I read the Mediator series by Meg Cabot, and even though I can’t remember what they are about, exactly, I know I loved them! There we go J
Well, this is easy. Magnus from City of Bones series was one of my favourite characters in all of the books. I can’t wait to read the novellas about his life. So much love for him right now ^.^
I have yet to read a book with Fairies or Fae. YET! I have intentions to, and even own this beautiful book called the Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset which seems like it is all about Fae. I believe there might’ve been some in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, but I am not entirely sure because I read those books years ago.
The Guardian by Lydia Rodriguez-Clement had some interesting demons in there. The idea of fallen angels mingling with demons to become stronger was intriguing. It wasn’t a tip top favourite of mine, but I liked her take on them.
I honestly cannot think of a single Angel book >< I think there was some or maybe one in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare? I hope so xD
I absolutely loved the aliens created in The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Once again, she has a completely unique and interesting idea with an even more addictive plot. Aliens that go into your body and fill up your mind? Uh, yes please!
Now this was easy, especially as one of my favourite all-time series is Gone by Michael Grant with plenty of super powered teens in it. My favourite character with powers either has to be the sinister Penny and her use of illusions, or Dekka who can control gravity. Honestly, I recommend these books to everyone!
