Happy Halloween eve!! We did most of our halloween celebrations over the weekend by doing a zombie walk and visiting our favourite haunted attraction where we go on a bus ride, visit 4 haunted houses, and we even did an escape room! So tomorrow is going to be pretty chill. My daughter has decided that she’s too old for trick or treating so I’m just going out for a while with my 8 year old and then my daughter and I are going to watch a movie. I can’t wait! So in the spirit of halloween, I decided that it would be fun to talk about the characters we wouldn’t bring into a haunted house. These characters don’t all have to be bad or dangerous – they could also be mischievous! This is going to be a bit of an off the wall list lol
NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS – I have a full work day ahead of me so I won’t have time to comment on your posts. I will make sure to read them and get you added to the list ASAP!!
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming topics in NOVEMBER – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
FRED AND GEORGE WEASLEY – The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
These two in a haunted house!?!? Could you imagine?? Guaranteed these two could come up with a more exhilarating house than has ever been imagined before! It would be a great mix of the outrageous, the scary, the funny, and everything else in between. I can bet that there would be no way you could go into a haunted house and make it all the way through with these guys….. You’d be kicked out long before the end! But man it would be hilarious! Maybe I would take them into a haunted house after all 🙂
RONAN LYNCH – The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
This guy is a bit too unstable to be set loose in a haunted house! I figure it can go one of three ways: #1 – He joins in on the fun of terrorizing little children. #2 – He gets bored with how cheesy a haunted house can be (because it’s nowhere near what he actually experienced) and get kicked out for laughing and making fun of it. #3 – He would do what Fred and George Weasley would do and that’s join in on the fun and terrorize as many people as he could!! I’m going with #3
JUST PLAIN SCARY!
MINYA – Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor
Remember Minya? Or, I guess I should ask, remember what Minya can do?????? THE GIRL SUMMONS AND CONTROLS GHOSTS FOR GOD SAKE! Any girl who can trap the souls of people and control the will of their ghostly form is a HELL NO when it comes to haunted houses! And if she talked with Sarai and knew the dreams and nightmares of the people before they even went into the house…….. I can’t imagine how many people would be taken to the hospital with heart problems by the end of the night!
MIA CORVERE AND MR KINDLY – The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff
First of all, Mia is a trained assassin. She’s trained to go unnoticed when needed but also to con the hearts of all she comes in contact with. But it’s not even that that scares me that much……. it’s the fact that with Mia comes her “shadow cat” Mr Kindly. Let me repeat – he’s a shadow cat! He can hide better than anyone and who knows what he’s truly capable of. This two for one combo isn’t something I want to meet in a haunted house in this lifetime!
BELLATRIX LESTRANGE – The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Yes, that’s right. I’m mentioning Harry Potter twice in this post! I’ll agree – Voldemort is a scary guy. But for some reason Bellatrix Lestrange is far more terrifying to me! She’s just so insane and unhinged. She was crazy before Azkaban but what she was after was even more terrifying and driven to kill. I would feel a little safer with Voldey I think!
