#AtoZChallenge 2018 Theme Reveal


#AtoZChallenge 2018 Theme Reveal


It's AtoZ Theme Reveal day!

Quick recap - AtoZChallenge, runs through April, 26 posts, each inspired by a letter of the alphabet, lots of bloggers, lots of wonderful posts, and lots of us have themes. P.S. Anyone can play and there's still time to join.

A theme links all of our posts together. Themes are not compulsory, but they are fun.

My theme this year is:

Movie Monsters

Every day I will be talking about some of my favourite movie monsters and the films they come from. Well, okay, for some letters, not my favourite, because I was scraping the barrel, but definitely interesting, and, yes, I have seen every one of the films and monsters I will be talking about.

  • Some of the monsters will have human faces
  • Some of the monsters are animals
  • Some are vicious aliens/paranormal creatures
  • And some of them aren't as bad as they might seem at all.
A few letters are a theme within a theme, for example, I bet those who have visited my blog before never would have guessed that "V is for Vampire" - other days will be a mixture of monsters whose names begin with that letter.

I am very much looking forward to seeing everyone in April and checking out all the other wonderful posts. Now I have to go and write mine :). Good luck to all taking part.

    1. They're not all monstery monsters - promise :) Some are fantasy monsters.

  2. Hi! I'd much, much rather read about monsters than watch them from behind a crack in my fingers. :-) Though I guess some could just be magical creatures like the hippogriff. (why am I instantly thinking of Harry Potter?!)

    All the very best for a successful and fun challenge.

  12. This is a great idea. I am really looking forward to checking out these posts. I have a quick question that has come up on twitter. Is Clifford the Big Red Dog a kaiju?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought Clifford grew because Elizabeth loved him so much, which I think would rule out kaiju :)
      Thank you for visiting :D

  15. Neat reveal. Thanks for reminding me of A to Z 2018 as unaware that it was imminent. Maybe it's too late.

    1. I discovered I have a limit when it comes to monsters too - for the first time I used VR on the PS4 - it had zombie clowns - I never, ever want to do anything like that again :) I will stick to the movies and books!

  17. Movie monsters. Cool! Have fun with that, Tasha. :)

  18. This is an unusual theme Tasha and I'm intrigued as I'm not really a Movie Monster fan. Good luck with the challenge.

  19. This is one perfect for my husband, who is a Movie Monster fan but he is more "old school" (Godzilla, etal). I'm looking forward to the ones you pick and see how many I know. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I feel I should rank my chosen monsters on a scale of scary, maybe from 1 to 5 :) Some are definitely 1s - not anything scary about them at all :D

  24. Great theme, I think it's always interesting how some screenwriters created a monster to fear, others to love and others to laugh at, too!

    1. Thank you, and yes, I totally agree. Monsters are diverse.

  28. I love monster 🎥 movies. The scarier the better. I still like the silly ones, but not nearly as much as the the movies that scare the hell out of me. Anyway, it looks like I’m gonna have fun with your theme. Thanks for visiting my theme Reveal.

  29. I love the sound of this. Interested to see which creatures you choose
