Happy Halloween everyone!
Now, I'm not a seasonal reader - I don't search out books about Christmas in December or beach reads during the summer.
I do however enjoy a good scare and at this time of year, it's fun to remember past readings that had me spooked!
In honor of Halloween, I bring to you a sample of books I've read over the last year that got my blood boiling and perhaps lead me to sleep with the lights on!
Futuristic, dystopian world where the young have no say or control over what happens to them, especially after they are sent to Furnace. Gave me chills and ended on a great cliff hanger.
Technology brought to the extreme...and done right under our noses. What if you woke up one day and everything you thought was true about your world was shattered? This book freaks me out (in a good way!) if I think about it too much.
Pictures. Creepy picture of creepy things in creepy situations combined with a fantastic story that left me breathless. A book to read, close, and walk away from slowly...until it draws you in again and you can't help but look one more time.
Creepy because it just feels so real! This could be our world and that terrifies me. Dystopian like it's meant to be - scary as hell.
That cover! I really can't look at it for very long. Fortunately, the story that goes along with it is equally creepy. Gets under your skin kind of creepy. Doesn't let you look away kind of creepy. Just the way I like it :)
So, what spooky books have you read this year?
