  2. Hmm...a good scary read I'd say would be Doomed by Tracy Deebs! This is what I gave away last year because it scared me to the bone! Basically some super genius created a virus that shut down all technology. No computers, no credit cards, no atms, no cash registers, no hospital machines...NOTHING! And it was so scary because I could see someone super smart doing that to us in the now! Society basically shut down and it was up to the heroine and her two new neighbors, who were brothers to solve the game that was presented to her in order to basically save the world! Truly terrifying in the realistic sense!

  3. Written In Red by Anne Bishop. The world is really different and interesting and the characters who are 'animals' scare a little bit during the book!

  4. The Red Church by Scott Nicholson is one of my most fave horror books. It freaked me out. Most of his books do.

  5. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is great because there are aliens, romance, and it is creepy! Also becoming a movie! I also love Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. Creepy ghost girl that a boy falls for! Plus some other freaky ghosts. Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. It's not really a horror book, but World War Z by Max Brooks can be pretty scary. :P

  8. Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna #1)
    by Kendare Blake

    because it has an unique plot and it's truly a creepy book!

  9. Piercing by Ryu Murakami because this novel isn’t “boo” scary; it’s more like “set your teeth on edge for days and make you never want to be close to anyone for the rest of your life” scary.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Anna Dressed in Blood...it is scary YA novel. Male protagonist hunts ghosts. Then he meets Anna Dressed in Blood, who might get the better of him.

  12. The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman is so so dark and grim. Definite nightmares await!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Asylum by Madeleine Roux is a great spooky book to read for Halloween. It is YA and very scary, in my opinion. It is about a guy that goes to a summer program at a college and the building he stays in used to be an old insane asylum. Of course, he goes poking around and finds way more than he bargained for.

  14. I like Rhys Ford's Hellsinger series (FISH AND GHOSTS and DUCK DUCK GHOST), because m/m urban fantasy is so hard to do well!

  18. Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

  19. I recommend Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (author of Gone Girl). This book is amazing; you think you have it figured out and then...... lol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm going to go with Skulduggery Pleasant By Derek Landy. It's a fun middle grade book with plenty of humor, witty and sarcastic characters and a cool magical world.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I recommend reading The Old Willis Place by Mary Downing Hahn. I read it a few years ago, so I don't remember all of the details, but I do remember loving it. Thanks for the great giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd recommend Nevermore by Kelly Creagh because while it has the typical goth-cheerleader pairing, there's quite a spin on it due to the creepy themes involved.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My recommendation is my fav. Halloween spooky book:
    The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman!
    Why you should read this? This is an Gaiman novel! He's teh best author in "weird, but funny" section! :) Nobody Owens is a really nice character, you must love his story, but this book is really horroristic - cool for Halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like Anna dressed in bloos and Girl of nightmares, there are not too scary but good books!
    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would recommend the whole Resident Evil series by S. D. Perry.
    It's a great series especially if you know the video games and/or the movies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Carrie by Stephen King because I consider that any Stephen King's book is good to read on Halloween. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd recommend The Amityville Horror. It's a classic and it'll make you terrified of pigs.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Fall by Bethany Griffin, just came out, and it is really good! It's a re-telling of the Poe story.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't read a lot of spooky books, but I would recommend The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle. It's a classic mystery story with a spooky setting on the Yorkshire moors in England.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd recommend the Something Strange and Deadly series. Zombies and the 1800s (I think) make a surprisingly good combination. The image of a woman wearing one of those huge dresses running away is just kind of hysterical. I'm horrible :-P But I did really love the series :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I recommend Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, it was interesting and fun. I don't read many scary books cause I'm such a wimp. The Summoning series by Kelley Armstrong was also very good.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I loved the Alice in Zombieland series by Gena Showalter. Lots of action, strong characters, scary zombies and a lot of great humor too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. the shining by Stephen King because it's scary

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Shining by Stephen King!! The book was so creepy I was scared to stay alone for a week!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would recommend you read the Demonata series by Darren Shan this halloween. It will definitely keep you up at night. He is a great author. The books are not very long and you can do a 12 days of Halloween read lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. Misery by Stephen King - it's actually a really quick read for him. It's amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You really need to read The Cell by Stephen King, especially if you like a modern twist on the traditional zombie-fare!! One of the best I've ever come across :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. While not particularly scary, I loved The Greyfriar by Clay and Susan Griffith. It's part of the Vampire Empire trilogy, and doesn't get nearly enough love for it's masterful blend of vampires, alt-history, and steampunk.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Have you read The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco? It's about a vengeful ghost girl and a boy possessed by demons. It's perfect for Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Night Shift, a collection of short stories by Stephen King, has some incredibly creepy moments, perfect for Halloween reading :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Of monsters and madness by Jessica Verday. It is Edgar Allen Poe with a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde complex. What's not to love? It was an amazing book. Thank you for the giveaway

    1. If you like cozy mysteries, I;d recommend Scared Stiff by Annelise Ryan. It's a little bit quirky, amusing and takes place at Halloween.

  42. Karen Moning's Fever series. It is well-written, scary in its way, and has a great, enigmatic hero (word used advisedly!).

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love Agatha Christie's AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. It's deliciously creepy! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd recommend The Diviners, it's a fantasy/paranormal book set in the Roaring Twenties with bit of a spooky side.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I recommend Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. It's perfect for Halloween. It has ghosts, spookiness, murder mystery and a little of romance.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann, it is the kind of book you can't put down, but it's also very tense and scary.

    ReplyDelete
  47. If you like romance books featuring witches, you should definitely check out The Winter Witch by Paula Brackston.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Feral by Holly Schinder :D It has gore and lots of blood

  50. It By Steven King book still scares me when i read it great for halloween

    ReplyDelete
  51. You should read "The Haunting of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson because it is the finest haunted house tale ever.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I recommend The shining by Stephen King

    ReplyDelete
  53. Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake. It is creepy but it has humor in it. Really good!

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's not exactly scary but it is Hallowen-ish and it's a great cozy: Trick or Treat Murder by Leslie Meier. I read her books all the time. She is never one to disappoint. Great writing!

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey because it's just so creepy! The way it's written made me smile or skin crawl every few pages, it's brilliant and the writing is just so excellent that even as someone who isn't much into spooky stories, I loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I would read First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones (actually the entire series). It's one of my favorite PNR series. The main character Charley is a sarcastic Grim Reaper/private investigator. The book is funny, touching and steamy. The more the series progresses the better it gets with something big coming, book 7 just dropped so if you like the 1st then you can have a marathon without any cliffhangers. I promise you wont be disappointed. If you want something darker then Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series was absolutely incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I recommend anything by Stephen King for Halloween because he writes truly terrifying books! If you have not read It, it is one of my personal favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just One Look by Harlan Coben. It isn't about Halloween but it is so terrifying that you will never feel completely safe again!

    ReplyDelete
  59. The Talisman by King & Straub, it's more of a mystery/suspense but it can get creepy.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The Charley Davidson Series, its not scary but it does involve the Grim reaper but not as you know it. Darynda Jones' writing is funny and can't help but make you laugh out loud. Its my favourite series.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I recommend A Great & Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. It's scary but so beautiful and just a great story.
