New Top 10 List! Top 10 Halloween Reads!

Check out the full list of my Top 10 Halloween Reads to get into the Halloween Spirit on my blog Writer Girl in LA! It's an internet meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and I try to participate every Tuesday!

Here's 3 of my picks:

1. Someone At The Door by Richie Tankersley Cussick: Two strangers burst into a girl's house where she and her sister have been trapped by a blizzard... It goes from there. What I like about Cussick's books are that they're horror/romance and they're fun reads. Also loved: The Locker, Starstruck, and Summer of Secrets.

2.The Shining by Stephen King: It's the only Stephen King book I've read and it was great! In fact, I visited the hotel in Estes Park, CO where Stephen King wrote it because I thought the book was so great - I wanted to see the inspiration for the book. For those of you not in the know, it's about a family whose father is the caretaker of a hotel one winter and he starts to go insane...

3. The New Girl Who Found A Dead Body by Milda Harris: Yes, that's me! It's true, though. I would recommend it for a Halloween read. This book is in the vein of RL Stine's Fear Street Novels. It's a horror mystery: Chloe is excited about spending her senior year of high school in California with her friend Jake's family. Even the usual dread of being the new girl can't bring her down. That is, until she stumbles across the dead body of the most popular girl in school, Lora Kelly. Now she's receiving threatening notes...will she be next? Everyone is a suspect. There's her childhood friend Jake, who she's known forever and there's his girlfriend, Kate, who is insanely jealous of any girl in Jake's vicinity. Or is it Grey, the mysterious, handsome, and arrogant rich boy who has a passion for photography and Chloe is already falling for? Chloe doesn't know who to trust and time is running out before the killer strikes again...

  1. This is a great list for anyone who loves to read and get into the Halloween spirit! I'm definitely going to check out some of these books.

  2. It's so hard to choose just 10 books to read for Halloween, so this list is a great way to narrow down the selection. I'm looking forward to checking out some of these spooky reads!
