Halloween Booktacular! Great Halloween Reads
My Great Halloween Reads from 2011:
Frost by Marianna Baer
Seemingly perfect house, but with unexplainable and odd happenings. Leena's descent into isolation and her roommate's life in danger made this book suspenseful and intriguing.
The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Yovanoff knows how to write a book with spooky elements, suspense and monsters wit human faces.
Lips Touch by Laini Taylor
This was one of the creepiest books that I have read in a long time. Taylor has a way with descriptive passages, and her collection of stories is perfect to read by flashlight
Graveminder by Melissa Marr
Marr has a solid adult debut here. Though different from what I've come to expect from the author of the stunning WICKED LOVELY series, it's definitely a winner.
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Definitely a spooky read, and one that can be read in just a few sittings, if not less.
The House of Dead Maids by Clare B. Dunkle
This was an audiobook read for me, and it was fantastic and creepy and just perfect for a fall night.

I'm a writer, aspiring to that higher plane of becoming a published author. I love books in all their forms, be it electronic or print (though obviously, there is nothing like the texture of a book in my hands!). I want to share that love and meet others who feel the same.
