FrightFall Read-a-thon Challenge 1

Nova at My Seryniti is hosting a challenge for the FrightFall Read-a-thon.  The challenge is to answer some questions.  Thanks Nova for hosting this challenge!!

"You’re sitting by a campfire with some friends. The wind is blowing and the air is just getting that crisp feeling. The beach is just a few feet in front of you and you can hear the surf crashing upon the shore."

Now… answer these questions.

1- Who would you want warming you up?! (Fictional characters please!!)
The first person that popped into my head was Asher from the Anita Blake Series.  lol not sure why but going to go with it.  He always seemed to me like he would be a great guy.  He isn't perfect and has some flaws but there is just something about him. Unfortunately the author has never seemed to want him to grow or evolve like some of her other characters.  He actually seems stuck or has kinda devolved a bit...probably because he sort of seems a bit neglected in the last several books.  Maybe I could help him with that.

2 -What are you listening to? (Music or a story)
Right now I am really into Lindsey Stirling's music. So I am going to go with that.

3 -What snacks would you have?
Hot chocolate and marshmallows for me and a blood donor for Asher. Though he could feed on me for a bit.

4 -We know you brought a book, which one is it!?
I am Legend by Richard Matheson.

5 - It’s your turn to tell a spooky story, which one is it going to be?
Though its technically a poem I would have to say Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven.  Its my favorite.  Though I do also enjoy The Tell-Tale Heart; which is actually a short story.

And just for fun but not part of the challenge…

1 - Do you celebrate Halloween? -
Yes.  Its my favorite holiday!

2 - What’s your fav horror story? -
Hmm not sure.  Maybe Hell House or I am Legend by Richard Matheson

3 - Fav type of villain? (Vamp, zombie, etc)
I love zombies! Vampires are a close second. 

4 - Fav horror movie?
I'm not sure which is my fav.  I have a few I liked. Resident Evil.

5 - Fav bad guy!
Hmm not sure..Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers..

6 - Halloween costume you plan on wearing (or would) this year. 
If I were to decide to dress up this year I would probably go as Alice in Hysteria Mode from American Mcgee's Alice Madness Returns.



  1. I need to read I am Legend! I may try to get to it this month sometime. That picture is awesome! Love your answers. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Ohhh.. I forgot to add... Lindsey Stirling's music is perfect! Amazing and hauntingly beautiful. <3

  3. Great answers! Hell House is probably my favorite horror novel. Hope you're enjoying the read-a-thon!

    Oh yeah, pretty creepy picture too!
