TGIF (5): Spooktacular Reads

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

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

Honestly, off the top of my head, I'd consider these books/stories creepy, festive Halloween reads:

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson  (See my review!)
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
The Tell-Tale Heart//The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allen Poe

What are your suggestions for a festive/scary Halloween read?

    1. She was extremely detailed when it came to the stuff about England and Jack the Ripper, and I loved that. It was a scary book, but I loved it!

  22. Oh, I didn't know Beautiful Creatures was scary. Maybe I should rethink reading it.

    But I so want to read The Name of the Star!

    1. I don't know why but Beautiful Creatures completely creeped me out when I read it. It might have had to do with the fact that I read it late on a stormy night...

  23. I'm glad to see The Name of the Star on here! I just borrowed it from the library and I'm excited that I'll have something a little creepy to read in these next coming days. :D

    Have a great weekend!
