Creatures of the Night Tag

I wanted to do a sci-fi/fantasy tag for Sci-fi November and then Anne @ Anne Books tagged me to do the Creatures of the Night tag, originally created by Katytastic  on Youtube.

Confession Time: I’ve read a bunch of vamp books when I was younger (11-12). I honestly don’t know why I read them, rereading most of them I find that the plot and writing are not to be desired. I usually try to keep those books away from reviews on my blog in case of judgment. The most notable series with vampires would be the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer and Vampire Dairies by Richelle Meade.

I’ve never really read a book focused solely on werewolves. Most likely the most memorable one is once again the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer or Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.

Nope… zombies bring back too many memories of the Plants vs Zombie app. That game just ruined my perception of zombies.

Ghosts… off the top of my mind the one that comes to me is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I simply adored Headless Nick and Rowena Ravenclaw. Ghosts are dead, so I’m not particularly drawn to them.

Here is the essence of fantasy the witches, warlocks, wizards, and spellcasters. My favorite is Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. The classic portrayal is still what comes to mind first when I think of witches and wizards.

My only books with demons in it are The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments, both by Cassandra Clare. (same I have to agree with Anne)

The books I remember that feature angels most prominently is Hush, Hush by Becca Fritzpatrick, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, Embrace by Jessica Shirvington, and Hidden by Marianne Curley (my favorite one based in Australia).

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (review here)! Great, amazing, phenomenal book series with aliens *-* (again have to revert to Anne’s original idea here)

Superpowered Human
Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me is the favorite superpowered human is the first sci-fi one I could think of. It is about Juliette who has superstrength and other gifts. After a little more pondering I can think of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs that is featuring Jacob and a slew of other children that are born with gifts like seeing monsters or a fire starting gift.
