Blogger Trick or Treat: Spooky Reads
It's that time of year again! The time for candy and ghosts and me looking warily behind me and sleeping with the lights on because I'm a big ole scaredy cat. Like I said in my bookish costumes post, my idea of a Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus or Halloweentown. I have a bit more tolerance for spooky books, however, so this Halloween, I'm totally going to myself to get a bit more creeptastic in my reads.
(This is also the time of year for Great Imaginations Blogger Trick or Treat! I love those girls and was so pleased when they asked me to be a part of the hop. For more information, check out their intro post here, and keep your eye out for their giveaway!)
So what are my All Hallows Read options? Pulling solely from my physical shelves, these are the vaguely spooky-esque options:
Such choices! Very options! What do you think I should read? I mean, let's be real. I fully plan to stay inside Halloween night, mainlining mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, singing "I Put a Spell on Youuuuu" in my best Bette Midler voice (my Midler impression is, sadly, only middling) and reading until I fall asleep with, yes, all the lights on. I need a gameplan! Tell me what to read.
Need spooky reads suggestions? Well, I'm not really the person to ask if you want LEGIT terrifying books, because I'm a huge wimp, but these are a few of my favorite holiday-appropriate books, and most of them won't give you nightmares.
Happy Halloween, darlings! Make sure you stuff yourself with candy. Everybody knows holiday calories don't count.
(Try not to eat any children, though.)
