Feature & Follow Friday (17)


Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and
Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet other book bloggers!

This week's question is:
What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic detail of goriness . . .

Just based on the title alone, Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake would make a perfect Halloween movie. It's definitely scary and probably not the type of book you want to read in the middle of the night with only a minimal amount of lights on. Emma Silver's Blackbrooke, with its grotesque, human-hunting Crits that come out at night to hunt their prey, would also make an excellent horror film.

If you're a new follower, be sure to let us know so that we can follow you back. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Anna is a perfect Halloween read, and it's just an amazing book. Blackbrooke is really creepy, and it actually made me want to read more horror. I wasn't exactly a big fan of the genre until I read that book.

    1. I read Anna after lots of arm-twisting by my cousin, Melissa, who read it first and loved it. I'm glad that she was so persistent about getting me to read it!

    1. Anna is probably everywhere today- it's the first book that I thought of for Halloween. And Blackbrooke is really creepy- I'd probably be too chicken to watch the movie version.

    1. I'm still pretty wimpy when it comes to watching horror movies, so I don't know if I'd go see it. The book was fantastic, though.

  17. Great choices! I haven't read either but they both sound like they'd scare me senseless if I did. I can imagine Anna Dressed in Blood as super gory and creepy! Now I don't think I could watch it (if it was a movie) as me and scary movies do not go well at all!

    Thanks for following my blog! New follower :)
