Summer Fun Mini Challenge #1

*This mini challenge is worth between 1 and 12 points*


Your Challenge, should you choose to accept it.  Is a nice and easy one seeing as how it's only the first in a set of seven challenges.  This one is going to be related to creatures.  Below is a list of 12 different creatures:


Alien
Angel
Demon
Elf
Fairy
Ghost
Mermaid
Unicorn
Vampire
Werewolf
Witch
Wizard
Zombie


And from that you have to recommend me a book to do with each of the 12 categories.  So for example I choose Mermaid so I'd recommend The Little Mermaid because it is about mermaids and then I choose Vampire so I'd recommend Twilight.  You don't have to recommend a book for each so you get 1 point for every creature type you recommend.


So comment below with book recommendations for each of these creatures, you cannot use the same book for more than one category and try to be as unique as you can. You have until the 3rd of December to complete this mini challenge and if you haven't signed up for the giveaway yet you can here! You may come back at any time to answer any unanswered creature books if you wish.  Good luck!
