The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
What spooky creature and/or setting do you never get tired of reading about?
(submitted by Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books)
I don’t often read about spooky creatures or settings, so I don’t get tired of any. I guess the spookiest characters/setting I could read more and more about is Ann Rice’s supernatural world full of vampires and witches. Her Mayfair witches are the most frightening of the creatures as their story involves a terrifying demon named Taltos. I wish there had been more in that series as I never got tired of their story even when it crossed over to The Vampire Chronicles books.
AMC has recently picked up the rights to make The Mayfair Witches and The Vampire Chronicles into tv series. AMC did well with A Discovery of Witches, but that series wasn’t anywhere near as frightening and gory as The Mayfair Witch series, so that will be interesting if it airs.
Now, a non-scary Halloween movie that I never get tired of is Casper from 1995. I watch it every year. And play the dance scene over and over because I love that song. I was a brand new high school English teacher the year the movie came out on video, and around Halloween, we went into testing. So, on the days my students didn’t have a test in my class, we watched this movie. We had quite a lively discussion about why Cat’s mom, who is dead, comes back in a red dress and not a white one. I had to find something literature-like to discuss, right?
