Happy Halloween!!!

***Spookified a book Kendare Blake signed/doodled for me way back when***


Happy Halloween, Everyone! I seriously love this time of year. Pumpkin carving, crazy decorations, candy, and all sorts of treats. As Cady Heron would say, "In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.". Though I haven't dressed up in years, I did find this gem in my photo stash:


Yep, that's me as Little Red Riding Hood and my friend, Cory, who came as Tiger Woods. Oh, college. Enjoy it while you can!



To kick of this awesome day, I thought I'd share with you guys some of my all-time favorite spooky books. Remember this jewel?


How is this book even a children's book? Seriously, I cannot tell you how many times SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK almost made me sh*t my pants. Do you remember the illustrations? I sure do. They're forever burned into my memory no matter how hard I try to delete them. *shudders*

Another one of my favorite Halloweenish books is this beauty right here:



Duh, I had to include ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD. To those who have read it, you know why this is on my list. Ahh, the humor, the gore, the overall "Eek" factor...awesome.


The next and final book on my list definitely delivers when it comes to the scary, horror factor. I give you...


There are no zombies or vampires, but there are plenty of horrific and "Dang, that's effed up" moments that kept me up at night. I wasn't the same after reading THE DIVINERS.




To all of those going trick-or-treating tonight, may the odds be ever in your favor. Be sure to be safe and if you're in Houston, bring an umbrella with you. What are some of your favorite Halloweenish reads?

    1. Oh, The Diviners is fantastic! Loads of creepy goodness. It's looks long but definitely doesn't feel long.
