Spooky Book Time

You guys, IT IS OCTOBER!!  Which means it's my favorite month of the entire year.  My birthday, my wedding anniversary, my birthday ;-), has everything I love all in the span of those wonderful 31 days.  The second I notice those leaves starting to change on the trees I know it's time to get in the spooky mindset.  

And what better way to get in the spirit than reading scary stories?

I know, I know.  There are some people that prefer watching movies, and I totally respect that.  But I am a reader at heart.  I get so much more out of reading a book for hours on end, visualizing the characters, and letting it all play out in my mind.  There's something really magical and personal about that experience, which is why I will always favor books over movies.

I have developed a fabulous list for my fellow book lovers to help get you in the Halloween spirit.  You can find most of these at book stores, your local library, or on your books app on your phone/tablet. is always a favorite of mine, too.

So without further ado, here is your
