October - Paranormal Creatures Challenge
01.10.13-31.10.13
12/11 Level Hard


Books do not double count.

1)Centaur
2)Mermaid
✔3)Ghosts or spirits--The Haunting of Hill House 10.10.13
✔4)Dragon--The Eyes of the Dragon 07.11.13
✔5)Vampire--Club Dead 07.11.13
6)Zombie
7)Werewolf/ Shifters
8)Faerie
9)Unicorn
10)Witch/Wizard/Spellcaster
11)Demons/Angels/ Dieties






If you're not a paranormal fan, here's an alternate adventure for you:

✔1) A centaur or a mermaid is a book that combines two distinct genres.
✔2) Ghosts are books written in the past - "classics" from over a century ago. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Tales of Terror 29.10.13
The Complete Stories and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
✔3) Dragons are proud books - the highly anticipated blockbusters and bestsellers.The Great Gatsby 02.11.13
✔4) Vampires are books that fell into obscurity for a while but came back in a wave of popularity. the psychopath test 02.10.13
✔5) Zombies are similar to vampires, but are less "sexy" and "mainstream" versions.The Collector 28.10.13
✔6) Werewolves are violent books with surprising plot twists. Battle Royale 08.10.13
✔7) Faeries are essentially magical and beautiful. They're flighty and light, but have very good prose.The Reptile Room 25.10.13
8) Unicorns are rare. They are treasured, unexpected things, like books that have under 1000 ratings, or a new ARC that you are excited to experience.
✔9)Spellcasters are compelling. They DEMAND to be read to the exclusion of all else. And thus, must be read completely before anything else is started or finished. Stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers 04.10.13
✔10) Demons and angels are guilty pleasures and required reading. Something for school OR something that you know you shouldn't read /right now/ but you do. The Hunger Games 03.10.13
