Creatures of the Night (Book Tag)

I should have thought about my answers before attempting this, but I haven’t, so this will be interesting.

But I am bored and this seemed fun so let’s do it.

Original Tag Video here.

1. Vampire
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black – Just when you thought vampires could not be saved, this book happens. And it was glorious.

2. Werewolf
We have already reached the first problem. I don’t think I’ve read a werewolf book other than twilight (and those weren’t even real werewolves)
Okay, the closest I am going to get to this is this:
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – the best I could come up with.

3. Zombie
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry – It has been a really long time since I read this (or any zombie book for the matter) but I remember liking it, and that’s good enough for me.

4. Ghost
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake; Everlost by Neal Shusterman – I love these books equally so I am including both as I am a (not so) sneaky cheater. I think it’s worth mentioning both as one takes ghosts from a human-perspective, in the horror/romance genre; the other is a ghost-perspective in an action/adventure setting. One questions the humanity of humans, and the other, the humanity of¬†ghosts.

5. Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster
Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy – Yes, I didn’t like the last book and yes, this is second under Harry Potter, but I didn’t want to be (too) predictable, and my love for the series still stands even if my love of Valduggery is non-existent.

6. Fairy/Fae
Throne of Glass – I haven’t actually read the series past the first book so I can’t exactly vouch for this one, but I haven’t read many fairy books.

7. Demon
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – The writing alone is worth its place.

8. Angel
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand – I have not read enough angel books to really answer this question, but this book was very fun and it was the best I could come up with so there.

9. Alien
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card – which should come as no surprise to anyone.

10. Superpowered Human
Vicious by V.E. Schwab РI cannot get over how much I love this book. It is simply amazing.
