I saw this book tag the other day from some Booktubers I subscribe to and I wanted to give it a try! I try to do at least one tag a month and what better way to get into the Halloween spirit than with The Monster Mash Book Tag!
This is an original tag created by The Restricted Section, which is based off the festive song by Bobby “Boris” Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers. If you’re not familiar with the song, take a moment to get into the mood:
So much fun right!?! Okay, let’s do this!
“I was working in the lab late one night.”
What’s a book that kept you up at night?
“My eyes beheld an eerie sight.”
What is the weirdest or creepiest thing you’ve ever read?
“Get a jolt from my electrodes.”
Name a book that completely shocked or surprised you.
If you ever wondered what was going on in Jeffrey Dahmer’s mind, then this book is the answer. Fair warning: This book is not easy to get through. It’s written in first person POV, so you are right there with this terrifying sexually depraved serial killer as he descends into madness and murder.
“The guests included Wolfman, Dracula, and his son.”
Name your favorite monster or villain from a book.
Olivia is the children’s grandmother who forces them to hide in the attic. The children’s mother, Corrine, also becomes just as vile and reprehensible as well, but she had to learn it from someone and that someone was Olivia.
“Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist?”
Name a book that was super hyped when it came out, but no one talks about anymore.
“They did the mash.”
Name your favorite book that is a mash up of two or more genres.
The perfect mix of action, fantasy, and romance!
“It was a graveyard smash.”
What is your favorite horror novel?
I read this book the first time when I was 16 and I can still say that this is one of the most beautifully written stories I have ever read. Is the true horror the monster himself or the man that made him?
|A student at Oxford rewrites the ending (Daily Mail)|
“The scene was rockin,’ all were digging the sounds.”
What’s your favorite song based on a book?
According to myth, Rhiannon, the Welsh goddess of fertility and the moon, shuns a god and marries a mortal man. In retaliation, the god frames her for the murder of her own son and she is then forced to stand at the entrance of the city and tell everyone that she killed her son.
“Tell them Boris sent you.”
What is your go-to book recommendation?
This book has a little something for everyone. The main character has a fantastic sense of humor given his situation as he tries to survive alone on Mars and you are rooting for him all along the way. The science is not overwhelming and you actually learn something. It’s very fast paced and the tension alone keeps you reading, so it makes for a quick read!
“For you, the living, this mash was meant too.”
Who do you tag?
All of you lovely readers! Please share links to your blogs with this tag or leave answers in the comments!
What is your favorite thing about Halloween?
I love dressing up with my family!
This year we are going as the Mystery Inc. gang! I’ll definitely share pictures when we get it all put together!
What a fun tag! I hope to hear from some of you with your answers!

LOVE the photos of you dressed up with your family! SO CUTE! I also really need to read Flowers in the Attic already. It's seems like such a creepy read, and I know I'd love it! I also really want to read The Woman in Cabin 10. The synopsis is stinking awesome! -Ali @ thebandarblog.com
