The Bedtime Book Tag

I recently saw Stardust and Words participate in this tag, which originated over at Always Me. Feel free to tag yourself if you want to join! And leave your link in the comments so I can check it out.

1. A Book That Kept You Up All Night Reading: The Unbecoming of Mara Deyer by Michelle Hodkin
Although it's been a while since I read this one, I distinctly remember looking at the clock and realizing I'd been reading into the wee hours of the morning. As I said in my review: "Warning: this book is ADDICTIVE. Like, I'll-stay-up-reading-until-my-eyes-burn addictive." 

2. A Book That Made You Scared To Go To Sleep: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
This question was hard because I really don't get freaked out by books easily. I'm pretty good at falling asleep, no matter what horror novel I just read. However, Anna Dressed in Blood was an enjoyable horror YA novel, so it'll suffice.

3. A Book That Made You Go to Sleep: Pegasus by Robin McKinley 
This one bored me so much that I really can't remember anything about it, aside from how bored I was.... So yeah.

4. A Book That Left You Tossing and Turning All Night in Anticipation of its Release: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I mean come on, do you guys remember how Catching Fire ended? I NEEDED that third book to soul my worried soul.

5. A Book That Has Your Dream Boyfriend: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
One word: Jace. I'll never fall out of love with that beautiful boy.

6. A Book That Would Be Your Worst Nightmare to Live In: Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith
Now here's a great psychological thriller. As I said in my review, "If you're opposed to death and gore, as well as frightening scenes from your worst nightmares, then I would recommend keeping this book at arm's length."

7. A Book That Reminds You of Nighttime: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 
This one kind of goes along with #1. I remember staying up reading until my eyes burned, and for that reason, I'll always associate this book with nighttime. Plus, it's got a pretty dark theme running through it.

8. A Book That Had a Nightmarish Cliffhanger: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
Dear Rick Riordan,

9. A Book That You Actually Dreamed About: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
I usually don't remember my dreams, so this one is kind of difficult, but I'm fairly certain that I had some dreams that were inspired by Laini Taylor's imaginative world. 

10. A Book Monster that You Would Not Want to Find Under Your Bed: Gollum from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien 
Maybe he's not exactly a "monster" in the simplest of terms, but that guy always really freaked me out. Would most certainly not like to discover him under my bed....
