THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: A BOOK YOU WOULD SAVE WHEN CIVILIZATION ENDS?
A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell
For purely selfish reasons, I’d save this book as it is one of my all time favourite books, if not my favourite! And it has the best opening line:
“Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write.”
THE VAMPIRE: A BOOK YOU WOULD STAKE THROUGH THE HEART?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Too many feels, I couldn’t cope, the emotions, gaaahhh, it’s too deep, this book spoke to my soul, it’s everything, it’s just, it’s just……! Just too many feels, make it stop, stake through the heart!
THE HAUNTED HOUSE: A BOOK THAT STILL HAUNTS YOU?
Bird Box by Josh Malerman
I still don’t know who or what ‘they’ are but ‘they’ are still out there and when we let our guard down, ‘they’ will come for us! (reviewed here).
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER: A BOOK WITH A TWIST YOU DID NOT SEE COMING?
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh
Because OMG that twist!
THE CREEPY DOLL: A BOOK THAT SEEMS INNOCENT BUT ISN’T?
The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson
Can you ever truly know the people you love?
THE MONSTER: A BOOK YOU COULD BARELY TACKLE/DEFEAT?
The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley
This book almost crushed me with it’s nothingness, dull, bland, boring, nothingness… but I persevered and finished it – a horror book with not one element of horror.
THE COMEDY-HORROR: A BOOK WITH MIXED GENRES THAT WORKED (OR DIDN’T)?
Normal by Graeme Cameron
Remember that ultra likeable guy who gets on with everyone… it’s such a shame he’s a serial killer, yeah, that one. Thrilling, entertaining and darkly humorous – it totally worked! (reviewed here).
THE (CLICHED) TEEN HORROR: A BOOK YOU FOUND SUPER CLICHED/STEREOTYPICAL?
You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Kevin O’Brien
Think ‘Scream’, the students don’t take the threat seriously at first, they get killed off one by one in ways reminiscent of the film.
THE DEMONIC POSSESSION: A BOOK SO GRIPPING YOU NEEDED AN EXORCIST TO ESCAPE IT?
The Devil Crept In by Ania Ahlborn
Who or what is that in the woods? (reviewed here).
THE SCIENCE FICTION: A PRECIOUS BOOK YOU WOULD PERMANENTLY SACRIFICE TO ALIENS FOR THE GOOD OF MANKIND?
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
If civilisation is lost because I tricked the aliens then… my bad. But Illuminae is science fiction and precious to millions of people all over the world! (I DNF’ed it, but don’t tell the aliens and everyone’s happy!)
Now I pass the Holy Grail* along to:
