Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?

I love this time of year! And I love creepy books. Here are a few that have chilled me to the bone!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Please leave a comment with your link so I can follow you back!


  1. So funny because I was a pirate last year! I have this fascination with the Roaring 20s, so when you said flappers I nearly died imagining how awesome that would be to dress up as one. Weren't they so pretty? And all that glamor... wonderful.

    I really, really want to read Anna Dressed in Blood, but I'm too chicken to actually hunt for it. Sad, right? Don't throw a book at me... but, believe it or not, I've have yet to discover the delights of reading about Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy. The only thing I can say is... I hope to, uh, read it... soon. *shrinks back*

  2. Awesome answers. We have another meme now that just started. It's called Dare to Read over at Tynga Reviews. She's awesome and would like more bloggers to participate. Come check out what I picked for my FF answer.

  3. I would love to have dinner with Patch too! new follower :)
    MaryAnn @ Chapter by Chapter

  4. Great picks for your characters! All three would do very nicely. =D And a flapper or a pirate would be awesome! I love both styles!

    I have had Anna Dressed in Blood & The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer on my tbr list for a while, maybe I'll get around to it soon!

  5. Hopping through. Noah Shaw sounds familiar. What is he from? Mara Dyer? I'd love to eat with Mr. Darcy.

  6. I'd love Patch, old follower, here's mine

  7. Hi & Happy Friday!

    Great answers :)

    My FF -

    Have a nice weekend..

  8. Flappers and Pirates are two of my favorites! I'm going to be a pirate princess (by request of my three and a half year old) this year. :O)

  9. Great picks for creepy reads! Anna still haunts me, but I can't wait for the next book. And Mara...that one was just eerie!

  10. 1920's flapper dresses are very cute! Also, Noah Shaw hands down. Who cares what we are eating?! haha.

    Great choices Christy!

  11. Being a Flapper would be interesting. I love reading about the roaring 20's.

  12. Great picks! Mr. Darcy and Patch I know of, but I haven't had the pleasure yet of meeting Noah Shaw. Though I've heard he is definitely swoon worthy. :D

  13. Can I crash your dinner with Noah and Mr. Darcy? I have a minor hysterical meltdown in their presence, but I'll try to maintain my cool:) LOVE THEM! Hope you have a great weekend Christy!

  14. Hey! Your halloween dress up as a flapper would be amazing! That is so incredibly original/awesome!!
    I'm a new follower!

  15. It's so difficult to choose one person to eat with, there are a lot !!!

  16. Love your picks... I also have several that I would to have for dinner..opps, I mean have over for dinner.
    Old follower,

  17. The flapper sounds good to me.

  18. I have to put Dark Eden on my list. I've been seeing that around lately. Looks good! Have a great weekend :)

  19. YAY for flappers! I've wanted to be one for Halloween, forever. Last year I decked my sister out in flapper gear and I was all jealous. I want to be Cleopatra this year....or truthfully, anything where I get to wear a wig. That'd be fun for me. :D

    DARK EDEN was seriously weird. I was a bit creeped the whole time.

  20. Pirates are always a fun costume. I own many random pieces of a pirate costume (because I dressed up for a premiere of one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) so I always look for an excuse to dress as a pirate. :)

  21. I wanted to dress up as a flapper this year, but I unfortunately haven't had time (or an occasion to go to) to pull the costume together :(

    I love your picks! All of them, I haven't read, but I'm planning to :)

  22. If you have Patch over for dinner, you MUST let me know. ;)

    P.S. I'm hosting a giveway of The Near Witch (as well as an interview with the author) at my blog if you'd like to stop by and enter, and possibly spread the word. If I reach 300 followers before the giveway ends, I'll add a second winner!

  23. I love that 1920's style, been trying to figure out how to get a real marcel finger wave in my hair but I think it involved not washing your hair for a month! Good choices for the dinner, Mr Darcy may be a bit haughty but he'd be pretty to look at!

    I chose Ai Ling from Silver Phoenix cos that girl loves to eat!
