๐Ÿ‘บ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘นย Creepy Crawlies that Can Stay on the Page

  1. 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!
  2. 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 makes me laugh.
  3. Pennywise from IT by Stephen King (and honestly all clowns) can stay the hell away from me!ย 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.
  4. 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.

What fictional monsters would you definitely want to stay the heck away from IRL? What do you think about my list?! Share your thoughts in the comments below!

    Oh, clowns for sure! Whoever thought they are funny should get themselves checked out!

    Wendigos were a big thing in my fave video game The Secret World. There was a whole story line set in a town that had very strong Stephen King vibes, spiced up with some native american indian mithology. Pretty awesome! But yea, don’t want to run into those things fo sho!

      Clowns are literally the worst and I don’t understand how people aren’t freaked out by them! I had an acquaintance dress up as one for Halloween one year and find it HILARIOUS to make me cry… My friends all told him to gtfo. Jerk

      Oooh I am going to check the game out!

    I would say it’s a rule of thumb that any creature you have to call “those things” should be avoided like the plague!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:02 PM

      This is incredibly true.

    No shame to say I refuse to ever go near whatever was in Contagion by Erin Bowman. My friend showed me a snippet while she was reading and…yeah. Solid and firm hard pass there. Lol. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind being around a wendigo. I feel like they could play a great game of poker. xD

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:05 PM

      THEY WERE TERRIFYING OKAY. Like wow, the book was terrifying and I still think about it.
      I will be sure to send all Wendigo to you, then.

    Ugh clowns! I find them so creepy. The first creature I thought of for this prompt was Wendigos , and I’ll be posting soon. I haven’t heard of the other 2 creepy crawlies.

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:05 PM

      Clowns are literally the worst and I think they should be abolished!

  6. Siobhan @ Novelties

    October 5, 2018 at 8:11 AM

    I canโ€™t stand Pennywise. I donโ€™t mind clowns, but heโ€™s just creepy.

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:06 PM

      Pennywise is like the worst of all clowns.

      1. Siobhan @ Novelties

        October 9, 2018 at 6:39 AM

        Agreed! The crew is filming the second IT movie not that far away from where I live. A part of me wants to see the actor in real life, but I couldnโ€™t handle him in the Pennywise get up.

    Oh I forgot about Wendigos ๐Ÿ˜ฐ those freaked me out so bad. I honestly didnโ€™t think of clowns at first but after reading your I totally agree.

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:06 PM

      I will convince everyone of how horrible clowns are so we can get them abolished from this dimension.

    I don’t think I’m afraid of clowns, but omg, Pennywise can stay FAR AWAY from this gal over here as well, haha. Same for Wendigoes. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:14 PM

      Pennywise is definitely nightmare fuel, even for those that aren’t bothered by clowns. *shudders*

      1. Sophia (Bookwyrming Thoughts)

        October 7, 2018 at 2:55 PM

        ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ True true. Get enough Pennywise and we’ll all be scared.

    October 6, 2018 at 12:22 AM

    Clowns are the worst! They creep me out like no tomorrow!

    I actually played a decision-based horror game with my brother one time, that has Wendigos in it! I honestly had trouble sleeping that night ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:15 PM

      Clowns ARE THE WORST! Ban them all!

      Oooh, games with wendigoes would terrify me haha

  18. Cam @ Camillea Reads

    October 6, 2018 at 1:52 AM

    I love Supernatural! Their earlier seasons used to scare the crap out of me! I’m creeped out by normal clowns so meeting Pennywise might be the end of me!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:16 PM

      Oh man the first few seasons were so good! Season 1 is by far my favorite though. And yea a regular clown causes panic attacks for me, so I think I would have a stroke if I saw Pennywise.

  19. Clo @ Book Dragons

    October 6, 2018 at 9:04 AM

    Clowns for some reason don’t overly bother me? Though some do creep me out, depends…but Grievers from the maze runner for sure can get lost. Man…they’re scary things hehe

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 6, 2018 at 6:18 PM

      Oh man, I just looked those up and NOPE!

    Wendigos are scary creatures. I would not want to be face-to-face with one. It can definitely stay between the pages of a book (or inside the TV screen).

    Happy Blogoween (thanks for being one of the hosts).

      October 9, 2018 at 12:13 PM

      Thank you so much for stopping by, and definitely agree about Wendigoes. I am glad I don’t remember my dreams because I am sure I’d have nightmares…

  22. Gerry@TheBookNookUK

    October 7, 2018 at 12:56 PM

    I love wendigos! Ok… not love but I *am* fascinated by them because I love anything to do with folklore and mythology. I remember them from Supernatural but there is also a movie called Ravenous which involves them. It’s very creepy!! There’s also a horror video game called Until Dawn and it’s too intense for words!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      October 9, 2018 at 12:18 PM

      Love is an interesting word to use for wendigoes lol! I do love folklore and mythology as well, so from that perspective I agree! Until Dawn is terrifying, okay?!

      1. Gerry@TheBookNookUK

        October 10, 2018 at 12:09 AM

        Itโ€™s more the love of the myth! I definitely wouldnโ€™t want to meet one๐Ÿ˜› I didnโ€™t even play Until Dawn but watched my husband play and was like… how can you stand to play without peeking through your fingers?!

        1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

          October 10, 2018 at 8:34 AM

          Oh there have been games like that for me! I remember Fatal Frame II and being too spooked to play it myself so I made my friend play it every time he came over to my house so I could watch

          1. Gerry@TheBookNookUK

            October 10, 2018 at 9:57 AM

            Iโ€™ve not heard of that one but even if I had I think it sounds like one that would scare me! I remember when Silent Hill cake out and me and my equally wussy friend tried playing! I was impressed by the story though!

          2. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

            October 11, 2018 at 8:49 AM

            It’s so good and creepy, something very atmospheric about the gameplay that is terrifying. Silent Hill was also terrifying. *shudders”*
