A Magical Character or Book.
I’m going with Moog from Kings of the Wyld. Moog is a wizard that’s a bit… goofy. He always get everyone out of a sticky situation just in the nick of time but man are there always weirdo consequences. He’s hilarious.
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.
Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain! This is a weirdo book, but it’s kinda creepy so perfecto for hot chocolate, a blanky, and a starry sky.
A Book that Truly Shocked You.
Perdido Street Station by China Mieville! Just thinking about this book makes me wanna reread it. At the time I rated it a 4, but really, it could probably be a 5. The ending of this book, man. Wow.
A Dark, Evil Character.
I always have such a hard time with this kinda question. Villains should be (and usually are) nuanced, meaning while they might be ‘evil’ there’s like… logic to it, I guess. Makes them more believable? Anyways, I choose All for One from My Hero Academia. He’s pretty bad, I think.
A Character that Should Never Have Died.
So… without giving spoilers, this one’s hard to explain. It’s not so much a death I wish didn’t happen, but… just… the fates of the characters? from The Queen of the Tearling. If you get to the end of the trilogy, you’ll get what I mean.
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.
Because see above for reason. PLEASE WRITE ANOTHER.
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.
The Fool from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings world. I’m about 120 pages away from the end of the series and I’m SO SCARED AUGH. I CAN’T STAND IT. IF HE DIES I’M GONNA RIOT.
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.
And I mean this in a negative way. This was a bit of a slog to get through for me. My poor soul, it’s mushy.
A Book that Still Haunts You.
I’m just gonna keep sayin it ;~;
A Book that Really Scared You.
House of Leaves. This book was eerie, man. Honestly I didn’t care for it overall, but I still think about it a lot.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.
Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle, particularly in the book. He’s just… augh he really grinds my gears. In the anime, he’s a bit more tolerable. A bit.
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.
A Monster Calls. I think the themes in this book are timeless, past or future, everyone can relate.
A Cover too Scary to Look At.
Communion by Whitley Strieber. Cheesey cover? Yes. But when I read this question this is the first book that popped in my head because when I was little, my mom had it on her bookcase. It was before I could read, and I was pulling random books off being a little kid, you know. I remember pulling this one off and getting really creeped out by it. Honestly I couldn’t remember the name of the book for the question, so I called my mom, who told me, and went ‘and you know what, I actually got rid of that book because it creeped me out!’. So… I guess the content matches the cover. Ahaha
