Hi everyone, I hope you had an amazing week! For the past month, I was really looking forward to Halloween. I had lots of books earmarked that I thought I’d love to read around the end of October, and then… meh. Halloween just sort of… happened. I don’t really know what I was expecting… ghosts dancing a jive or zombies doing the can-can… but it was all very anti-climactic! I really regret not reading those spooky books back in September when I was actually in the mood to read them. Naturally, according to my bookish moods, contemporary reads are exactly what’s called for on the run up to Halloween. Mmhumm. Yep. I think my moods and I need to have a little chat!
A Monster Quiz?? I love Quizzes!
Oh, the Books! posted an awesome What Is Your Fate With (Bookish) Monsters quiz! I love quizzes and naturally, I had to have a go! We all know I love my paranormal and fantasy books, along with all those bookish monsters.
As I was taking the quiz, I was thinking of all the possibilities… Vampires!
As long as they’re of the Ian Somerhalder or Alexander Skarsgård variety…
Ooh! Werewolves! At least they’d be cuddly.
Ghosts… humm, but that could get awkward with them being incorporeal and all.
Not too big on zombies either… I like my brains right where they are! And the smell…
Ahh! Finally the results are in!
You are destined to be possessed by a demon!
Oh no! Based on this highly scientific quiz you're likely to get possessed by a demon. Yikes! I know you thought none of this was real and tried fighting it as long as you could, but this IS real and your recklessness has gotten you in trouble. I guess since you're going to be possessed there's not a whole lot you can do about it. So um... enjoy the ride? (Result inspired by: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare)
Possessed by a DEMON?! Great… that’s… that’s just… wonderful… *sniffles* I really hope I’m not the only one destined to be possessed by a demon *sobs* Go on, take the test and see what you got! But, erm… *cough* if anyone wants to make a trade, I’m open to offers! Yes, yes, great idea! Can I trade with someone who got a nice cuddly werewolf?? Heck, I’ll even take a nibble with a vampire!
PS... I may have watched a bit of The Exorcist the day before taking this quiz... Yeah.
(Do I really need to say that all of this is in jest? ;-) But just in case... )
Books I Bought This Week
The final three books from my shopping spree arrived this week. I know Vampire Academy has been around forever… and I've never read it. But better late than never, right? I’m really looking forward to Since You’ve Been Gone! I loved Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, and I have such high hopes for this one. I’ve seen so much praise for this, so my expectations are very high! It’s been a long time since I read Everneath, and honestly, I don’t really remember much from that book. I think there was a guy named Cole? Hopefully Everbound will jog my memory, and be a little more memorable!
I took part in blog tours for both Loop and Eternal with St. Martin’s Press, and they sent me these beautiful finished copies! My tour stop for Eternal is on Monday, and my review will be up then. These are the first physical books I've ever gotten from a publisher, so I'm kinda excited about it :)
