Today’s Blogoween Prompt
Prompt Title: Creepy Crawlies
Explanation: Fictional monsters/creatures that you would hate to encounter IRL
👺👾👹 Creepy Crawlies that Can Stay on the Page
- Those things in the Long Room from The Siren and the Specter by Jonathan Janz literally haunt me. This is such a good haunted house book, and the atmosphere of the Long Room still sends chills down my spine when I think about it!
- Whatever those things are in Contagion by Erin Bowman also creeped me the heck out! I don’t remember them having been given a name in the book, but yea they creeped me out a lot and definitely do not want to encounter them IRL. Please stay away. The number of NOPE comments in my eBook copy of this book make me laugh.
- Pennywise from IT by Stephen King (and honestly all clowns) can stay the hell away from me! I’ve tried reading this book and watching this movie so many times, but I am terrified of clowns and I just can’t do it. When I was like 5 years old a (to my memory) drunk clown was all creepy laughing at the Circus and handed me a balloon… and it popped in my face, resulting in intense clown fear. NOPE.
- Wendigo from Algonquian folklore, which is a mythical man-eating monster or evil spirit native to the northern forests of the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of both the United States and Canada. [Source] I first saw them in an episode of Supernatural and kind of became obsessed… so creepy.
