Book Monsters Tag


I’m super thrilled that the wonderful Kayla @ kdrewkthebookworm tagged me to participate in the Book Monsters Tag, which was created by Beth @ betwixt-the-pages. Everybody check out their blogs! Now! (Okay, after you’ve read this post.)

Of course, the first thing that come to my mind when I read monsters, is the world of Harry Potter, so all of my monsters below are from this—dare we say it?—perfect series.

I Tag:

  1. Islay Loves Books
  2. Rakioddbooks
  3. The Not So Secret Life of a Fan Girl
  4. Fabled Haven
  5. Books and Fiction
  6. And everybody else who wants to do it! Go! What are you waiting for?

The Rules:

  1. You can use any monsters you’d like- cute monsters, not so cute monsters- and compare them each with a book!
  2. Make sure you link back to the original artists of the images you use so they get credit!
  3. If you can, tell us why you chose each pair, but if you don’t have a reason why, that’s okay, too.
  4. If you want to keep this tag going, be sure to tag people!
  5. Please link back to Betwixt These Pages to give her credit and so she can see all your posts!
  6. Have fun!

The Fun

Aragog – The Fault in Our Stars, John Green


Because it’s a trap! If you open this book you must finish it in the next 9 hours. Forget about sleep and nutrition, and mostly, brace yourself. Pain demands to be felt.

Basilisk – Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn

basilisk gone girl

Because Amy’s just as vicious as a snake. I’m sure even if Fawkes blinds her she’ll still find a way to ruin her husband.

Fawkes – Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins


Well, obviously, because there’s a girl/mockingjay on fire involved.

Grawp – Outlander, Diana Gabaldon


Scary in its size, but so sweet inside.

Mermaid – The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman


I’m not so sure, here. Probably only because of the cover.

Fluffy – The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R Tolkien


Because I kept falling asleep as I read this. (I know, SHAME ON ME.) Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I was just really tired that week and didn’t need the lullaby to drift off. Honest.

It also reminds me of Fluffy because it’s a trilogy. (Ahah, get it? Three?)

Dragon – Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas

dragon + throne

Because it’s downright badass. But also has a fairy tale feel to it.

Dobby – Twilight, Stephenie Meyer


Because I keep defending it. (Long live S.P.E.W.) And the nostalgic feeling linked to the novel is just as loyal as the elf.

Ghosts – Thirteen Reasons Why, Jay Asher


Because it’s haunting. And there’s a dead girl talking to you through the whole novel.


What do you guys think? 

Any other Hogwarts’ little monsters I left out that remind you of a novel?

Let me know through the comments!
