Read Scary

A few years ago I did a little private meme, collecting all the scary books I reviewed in October. This year I invite you to join in! Just post your scary book review in the comments and I'll collect them here throughout the month of October. You can add "Read Scary" to your title and labels as well.

Petrifying Picture Books
Eerie Easy Readers and Baleful Beginning Chapters
Monstrous Middle Grade
Terrifying Teens
Eerie Oddities

Love this idea! I just posted about zombie books today--is that too early? I know it's not technically October yet, but as I mentioned in my post, the grocery stores are already selling Halloween candy...

Jennifer said...

Nope, not too early. Except, I am assuming this is the post on Finding Wonderland? Google won't let me look at it because it thinks you have MALWARE. *gasp* can you give me the link, or let me know when it's get-at-able?

aquafortis said...

Ack! Yes. I had some kind of issue with a work-related website of mine, which I was also using to store some graphics for Finding Wonderland, and I guess it somehow got hacked and caused a cascading ripple effect of badness. I believe it's taken care of now (it looks like you got the link...). I reloaded everything and resubmitted to Google and whatnot.

Great idea! I just reviewed the new graphic novel, Plants vs Zombies: Lawnmageddon (yes, based on the video game!) It's due to be released this month and was a hoot to read (netgalley.com version). If you'd like to add the review to your list, it is here: http://readitagainmom.blogspot.com/2013/10/plants-vs-zombies-lawnmageddon.html THANKS!

You've already covered this book, but in case you'd like another point of view, here's my review of Home Sweet Horror: http://sharingsoda.blogspot.com/2013/10/review-home-sweet-horror-by-james.html

I also reviewed A Wig in the Window, which is somewhat scary at certain points: http://sharingsoda.blogspot.com/2013/10/review-wig-in-window-by-kristen.html

I have two great scary books to add:

Midnight Feast is a creepy book app for Tweens and teens:

Zombie Baseball Beatdown is a fun read with a not-too-subtle message, also for Tweens and teens:
