The Monday Poll: Most Horrifying Monster
Last week, we asked which fictional job you’d least want to have (as a complement to the previous week’s poll about the fictional job you most wanted). It was a close race, but our winner is being a tooth collector (from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor) with 23% of the vote. Grave digger (from Rotters by Daniel Kraus) received 21% of the vote, Defense Against the Dark Arts professor (from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling) received 18%, Head Gamemaker (from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins) received 17%, and Monstrumologist’s assistant (from The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey received 16%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
This week, we want to know what terrifies you: what’s the most horrifying monster in a YA book? Vote in the poll below — and since young adult lit is full of frightening creatures, let us know in the comments if we’ve left off something that really scared you!
