Hi.. this is my first book of the challenge.. hope to finish the others, too, on time

Hi! My first book for this challenge was Where Serpents Sleep by C.S. Harris. I had difficulty settling on a book for this category. I don't know why, but I was so hung up on insects I didn't think of snakes at all. Once I had my light bulb moment, I immediately knew what book to read.

I've seen "ghost" used for creepy crawlie. Does it have to be an animal, Beth? I thought of reading "The Lovely Bones." The title always makes my skin crawl. Maybe this challenge will help me want to read the book. Of course I could read a title with a spider or something in it???

I encourage creativity with the categories so ghost works or if the title The Lovely Bones creeps you out, then use it. :))

I read The Ladybug Jinx by Tonya Kappes then realized ladybug could be a creepy crawly!

I am hoping a ghost counts as a creepy crawly...

I keep trying to get my links to come out correctly. Along Came A Spider has a creepy crawly in the title and has a very creepy bad guy. My link says page does not exist at blog but it is there.

My creepy crawly was TONGUES OF SERPENTS by Naomi Novik - I love this series so very much, and the Simon Vance narration is icing on the cake, of course!

I had forgot to add this one, playing a little catch up today :)

I have just linked up the second book that would qualify under one of the lists. My creepy crawly is a bee, I know it has wings but it does creep across the flowers it lands on.

This is my 5 book in the challenge. "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Steig Larrson, to satisfy the creepy crawly challenge. hornets!! eeek!!!!

I enjoyed this book as much as the other two previous in the trilogy.

My creepy crawly challenge book is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.

Enjoyable read!

I had never read a Perry Mason novel and when I discovered one with Mosquito in the title I decided that would work here. What could be more creepy-crawly than a blood sucking bug?

Creepy Crawly name challenge let me catch up on one of my favorite series...Temperance Brennan by Kathy Reichs.

Anonymous,  6/4/12, 3:53 PM  

sorry, I clicked too fast, before adding the book title in the name!! It;s Inner River. A river crawls, right??

Julie 7/9/12, 1:57 PM  

I am done! This was fun, thanks!

Paula 7/28/12, 11:01 PM  

Little Bee was my book for the creepy, crawly catergory and was excellent!

Peggy Ann 8/13/12, 10:46 AM  

I'm using Creeping Venom by Sheila Pym for my last book. A snail is the culprit in this book! Thanks this was fun!

CMash 8/19/12, 1:39 PM  

Yippee...I just completed this challenge!!
Thank you for hosting and hopefully you will again in 2013. Will definitely be signing up.

Ok, so I'm kind of playing fast and loose with the category here, and if get a chance to read something else that fits better - I'll re-link. But for now - The Maltese Falcon it is, and I'm done!

Karen White 9/16/12, 11:34 PM  

This is a tiny bit of a stretch, but I'm going to include H.I.V.E Higher Institute of Villainous Education for my creepy crawly. For "beehive", even though the book is really about extraordinary kids.
And I highly recommend this book for mid-grade kids who were fans of Harry Potter. My girls love the series.

hannah 10/1/12, 5:40 PM  

huh. I really thought I commented on this one. I read "Spider Bones" by Kathy Reichs. A Temperance Brennan novel. fun!

dog eared copy 11/21/12, 1:23 AM  

I didn't post a blog review but I did read The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2; by Lemony Snicket) last Saturday. It continues the story of the three Baudelaire orphans who wind up in the custody of Uncle Monty, a respected herpetologist. Lemony Snicket always forewarns readers that these tales do not end HEA, and yet I find myself once again surprised that this is in fact true! I think hope endures on my part because I know that these are children's stories ergo they can't possibly be this "angsty," right? RIGHT? Regardless, the stories are clever and and certainly had me wondering what was going to happen next! :-)

Country Mouse by Amy Lane and Aleksandr Voinov.

Excellent book, looking forward to City Mouse (the second book).

Unknown 12/8/12, 11:27 AM  

Last book in the challenge!! First time I've managed to finish it!

Shonna 12/16/12, 9:46 PM  

The final book for the challenge. I had identified it as a choice early in the year, but hadn't got round to actually reading it until now!

I did read and post about Rawi Hage's Cockroach in December, but am awfully late updating the link. Nonetheless, I was quite pleased back then, because this was the definitely the category I found the hardest to fill by whimsical reading...and just in time.
