Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

It’s that time again. What time is that? Time for the annual Spooktacular Giveaway Hop, hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer!

I think the scariest thing I’ve seen this year is the mass proliferation of “Pumpkin Spice Everything” in every single store. While I’m grateful that the Pumpkin Spice Brigade is holding the too early Christmas Decoration Horde at bay, I think I’ve smelled enough pumpkin spice to last a lifetime. And the month is only half over.

This is my favorite recipe for pumpkin beer. Or pumpkin anything except pie.

If the endless promotion of pumpkin spice everything isn’t scary enough, there are plenty of books to make you shiver. I’m reading Broadcast Hysteria for Halloween. It’s about a real-life scare that should still be fascinating. On Halloween in 1938, CBS Radio broadcast Orson Welles adaptation of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. And thousands of people got hysteric believing that Martians really were invading New York City.

What scary books are you reading for Halloween? Or what’s your favorite scary book? Let us know in the Rafflecopter for your chance at a $10 Gift Card or $10 Book.

  18. I never read any Goosebumps books, so I think I will start those for my Halloween “scary” reading.

  19. I recently read The Ghost of Graylock to try to get in the Halloween mood. It wasn’t very scary and was more suspense, but that’s just the way I like it! Thanks for the great giveaway hop!

  20. My favorite scary books are The Heart-Shaped Box, It, and The Shining. I was planning to read the new Stephen King book, but with a child’s birthday on the 25th, two costumes to buy, and another child’s birthday on Nov. 15, I suppose my wish for that book isn’t going to come true. Oh well. Maybe the library? But I need my own copy for my collection…there’s always Christmas… πŸ™‚

  21. My all time favorite scary book is still “The Shining” by Stephen King. I was planning to read “Dr. Sleep”, also by Stephen KIng, this fall, but I have too many books that I still need to read first.

  22. One of my favorite scary books is Christine by Stephen King. I didn’t think I could believe a car was evil but, wow, I fully believed it while reading this story. Thank-you!!

  23. any of steven Kings books The Shining or the Stand seems to be what i wanna digi n to again perhaps

  24. I’d have to say The Shining is probably one of the scariest I’ve ever read. “It” by Stephen King, comes a close second!

  26. I don’t consider myself to be a huge fan of scary/horror books, but I guess I’m just in the mood this time of year since I’ve bought a boatload of ghost story books and the like. Also, Amazon had a huge sale on scary books the other day and I bought even more, including The Girl with all the Gifts, which had been on my wish list. I’m going to be busy. πŸ™‚

  27. Since I’m pretty much freaked out by anything, I’ll likely stick to picture books and read my toddler Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin Halloween story πŸ™‚
