1. A book you would recommend as a Halloween read.
2. A book that scared the wits out of you.
3. Your favorite book about witches.
4. Your favorite book to scary movie adaptation.
5. A book character you would love to dress up as for Halloween. 
6. Your favorite book with ghosts in it.
7. A book that scared you as a child, but doesn't now.
8. Your favorite book monster.
9. An author spirit you would want to summon and talk to at a seance.
10. A scary legend or folktale you would like an author to write a book about.

1. I would recommend OF BREAKABLE THINGS as a Halloween read. It has ghosts and even a big Halloween scene. I reviewed it on Halloween last year and I am going to review the sequel OF DELICATE PIECES, which publishes on October 20th, this Halloween!

2. THE ENTITY scared the beegezus out of me even after seeing the movie first, and knowing what to expect!

3. My favorite book about witches is...

4. My favorite book to scary movie adaptation is THE AMITYVILLE HORROR. The original movie is my favorite.

5. The book character I would love to dress up as for Halloween is...

6. My favorite book with ghosts in it would probably be THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE.

7. I was scared as a child by the story of PANDORA'S BOX from a book of myths and legends that we had. I begged my mother to read Pandora's story to me because the illustration at the beginning made me curious. Against her better judgement she did, and then she wished she hadn't.

8.  Hmmm... I guess all of the monsters in WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE would be my favorites.

9. The dead author I would like to contact at a seance would be Mary Shelley. Not because it is Halloween season and she wrote FRANKENSTEIN, but because she had illustrious friends like Lord Byron and I would want to know if they were all still hanging out together.

10. I would love to read a book about the original Boogeyman legend with a good back story.


I am tagging EVERYONE who wants to get in the Halloween spirit. If you do the tag leave your link in the comments and I will add it to the bottom of this post.


  1. Awk, I ADORE the Where The Wild Things Are movie! I'm far to obsessed with that story, hehe, but I can get away with it because I have nieces/nephews so I CAN PRETEND I'M NORMAL AND READ IT TO THEM, BUT REALLY IT'S ME WHO LOVES IT.
    Ahhh, I love all the spooky stuff! :D I don't really read very much of it and I don't celebrate Halloween, like, erm, at all. (It's just not a big deal in Oz.) But I WOULD like to take note of everyone's creepy recommendations and actually find a book to scare me! :D

    1. Ha ha, I would die without Halloween every year! My son is too old to trick or treat but I still make him a cauldron full of candy (sort of like an Easter basket) every year. I love carving pumpkins and handing out candy to the children. :)

  2. I totally recommend getting DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS as a Halloween read! I loved it so much I made a wallpaper of it yesterday X) Also also also, try reading GIRL FROM THE WELL and its sequel THE SUFFERING if you haven't yet. Most legit Asian horror I've read in a while ;A;

    1. I have Girl from the Well on my tbr. Why did I not know The Suffering was a sequel? For some reason I thought they were both standalones. Thanks for that info. I see Daughters into Devils is still on EW I should request it. :)

  3. I really need to start reading some creepy books! I had a pile of diverse and scary reads for this month and I have failed massively at them! *hangs head in shame*
