The countdown to Halloween has begun! Now is the time to gather all your finishing touches for you costume (or if you are like me, start thinking of a costume…). If you are the organized type, your costume is ready and you are wondering what to do with all your free time. Try getting into the holiday spirit with a spooky book. If creepy/scary/horror are what you want I recommend one of these:

The Prince of the Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Cirque du Freak (series) by Darren Shan
Demonata (series) by Darren Shan
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Clay by David Almond
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
The Enemy by Charles Higson
I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan
Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman
Bloodline by Kate Cary

Any one of these should keep you awake at night! If you are looking for something a bit lighter, but still spooky check out one of these:
