Creatures of the Night Book Tag

Halloween is almost here so to join in with the holiday celebrations, I’ll do some tags! 😀 No surprise there, I’m sure.

I’ve decided to do the Creatures of the Night tag, which I found Heather’s blog, the Sassy Book Geek. It was created by booktuber Katytastic. For the tag, one has to select their favorite book that features the creatures listed in the tag. Since I don’t read many horror or supernatural books, I’ll choose from movies and TV shows as well.

So…let’s get to the CREATURE VAULT!

Vampire

I had to choose the Strain, a horror TV show that airs on NBC, since it’s one of my favorite shows at the moment. I like that the vampires in this aren’t beings to be admired. They are parasites that feed on human blood and infect their prey while doing so, turning the human into one of them. The long tongue they use to feed further emphasizes that they are parasites — leeches — since the tongue clamps onto the human to start the feeding.

Werewolf

hemlock-grove

I actually didn’t like Hemlock Grove much. It’s a supernatural TV show aired on Netflix. However I chose it for this category because it has the coolest, most graphic werewolf transformation I’ve ever seen because you literally see the wolf emerging from the human. I think that’s awesome. If you’re squeamish, I don’t recommend you watch it. I wasn’t hooked on the story, but the goriness kept me watching.

Zombie

These are my favorite zombie movies. I don’t care what anyone wants to say about them, I enjoyed watching them and I’ll watch them over and over. I love how the first one starts with the dude waking up alone and I love the early parts of the second one when the dude left his wife behind (I thought that was a honest portrayal of what would happen. People aren’t always brave and stubborn and willing to save others).

the-walking-dead

There’s no way I could have watched the Walking Dead and not include it in the zombie section of a book tag. I love this show. I think I’m still on season 2 though because I found out about it late and I kept binge watching it so I got nightmares and had to take a break.

Btw, I think if there’s ever a zombie apocalypse, I could survive it because of all these shows. I wouldn’t be happy about it though.

Ghost

The Sixth Sense was a great ghost movie because of all the suspense. It’s also the only M. Night Shyamalan movie I’ve ever watched without being pissed off by the end. (He has a movie coming out in early 2017, Split, starring James McAvoy that looks very promising, but I’m scared to get my hopes up.) Ghost Whisperer was a sweet supernatural TV show that I liked as well, though I always got annoyed that the ghosts’ super scary hauntings were mostly miscommunication between them and humans.

Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster

It’s a tie for this. I loved the Charmed TV show so I had to choose it. I was so hooked on it as a teen and still watch it sometimes these days. And I had to choose Harry Potter because I’m fan. It had to be included.

Fairy/Fae

Eragon

I don’t ready many books featuring fairies and I’ve forgotten the title of my favorite book featuring them, so instead I’ve decided to include elves in this category and selected Eragon by Christopher Paolini. I like how elves are portrayed in this series. They are similar to those in the Lord of the Rings series, but not as stiff.

Demon

supernatural-tv-show

As a fan of the Supernatural TV show that airs on the CW, I HAD to choose it for this category. Crowley is one of my favorite characters in the show, right after Dean.

Angel

Umm… I haven’t watched or read many things featuring angels that I like, other than the Bible, maybe. I could choose Supernatural for this too, but the reason why I chose it would be a spoiler and it’s more about tricksters than angels.

Alien

independence-day

I’m not sure if this counts since it’s mostly about fighting aliens, but I’m going with Independence Day, the first movie that came out in the 1990s. I couldn’t think of an alien movie or TV show I really liked and I haven’t read many books about them.

Superpowered human

wolverine

The answer is all the superhero movies and TV shows. I chose the Wolverine poster above because it’s badass. The artist did I great job.

  3. Omg, the 28 Days/Weeks movies are SO GOOD. I’m glad you agree. I haven’t seen them in at least a year, so I think it’s time to watch them again. Thanks for the reminder. 😀
    I also enjoyed the first season of Hemlock Grove. You have great taste in TV/Movies, Zezee!

    • Thanks Naz.
      I just love shows/movies that make me yell at the screen lol. That only happen with horror flicks cause some characters are too curious for their own good.

  5. Ooh gosh, I remember that transformation in Hemlock Grove. It was terribly gory (although I kind of loved it as well). Out of curiosity, what didn’t you like that much about the show? It was a bit whimsical (that’s not the right word, but I can’t think of a better one) to me, although I loved the relationship that the two boys had.

  6. Awesome tag. The title reminds me of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. I used to love The Ghost Whisperer and I watched a few seasons of Supernatural. The later was definitely scarier. The Walking Dead is such a great show. Great post!

    • You’re welcome! Oh I forgot that it comes on Sundays. Did you watch Into the Badlands on AMC too? I loved that show. The fighting was cool.
      And yea, Hemlock Grove was odd. That scene the menstruating girl and the boy was…interesting.

  7. Thanks so much for tagging me! Haha I’m the same about horror books- so we’ll see what I can come up with 😉 And I’m terrified of zombies, but I really like what I’ve seen of Walking Dead. (Having seen it, I have a pretty clear idea of how I’d be one of the first to die in the zombie apocalypse though!!)

  8. I really like this book tag 😀
    but sadly I don’t watch a lot of tv shows or movies. But I found really good books from these books you have mentioned and I will add it to my to read list on Goodreads.
