Blogoween | Characters + Quotes that send chills down your spine

Happy Halloween, all!!

Unfortunately, as much as I really wanted to, I wasn’t able to participate in the month-long Blogoween like I did last year. But I did prepare a post for today! Recently this year, I found myself reading books that have really interesting characters and that take a bleaker outlook on human nature. So I thought, why not compile together a few for this post?

This took a lot darker turn than I expected it to be. But bear with me!


Sadie from Sadie

“People don’t change. They just get better at hiding who they really are.”

– Sadie, Courtney Summers


Leonard Peacock from Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

“Not letting the world destroy you. That’s a daily battle.”

– Matthew Quick, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock


Alex Craft from Female of the Species

“You can love someone down to their core and they can love you right back just as hard, and if you traded diaries you’d learn things you never suspected. There’s a part of everyone deep down inside of them not meant for you. And the sooner you learn that, the easier your life is gonna be.”

– Mindy McGinnis, The Female of the Species


Victor Vale from Vicious

“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”

– Victoria Schwab, Vicious


Which books have you read? Do you have any other characters in mind who send chills down your spine? I’d love to know!!

  1. My favourite (opening) line has to be by Muriel Spark – “He looked as if he would murder me, and he did”. I’m getting a book of her short stories for Christmas from my parents, so I can’t wait to read the rest of the story!

      1. Apparently, it’s ‘The Portobello Road’, from her collected short stories. The book arrived today, but my mum whisked it away for Christmas! 😭
