Welcome Spooktacular Month of October

Welcome - Welcome

Spooktacular Month of October

I am designating October as spooktacular month and will be reading some interesting books. I'll be joining Heather of Age 30+ A Lifetime of Books in reading Frankstein by Mary Shelley.

I'll be reading and reviewing "Dracula The Undead" by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt which will be released on October 13th.

For more spooky pleasure will also be reading Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko all about the battle between good and evil by the supernatural Others who serve either the Light side or the Dark side.

Book Chick City is having a month long "All Hallows Eve" celebration and will be reading and reviewing books, doing some giveaways, guest posts, interviews and much more on her blog. Come join in on the spooky celebration.

Cool picture!

My husband and I got to reminiscing last night and telling our son about "Dark Shadows" which was a tv show we both watched back in the late 60's. It was campy, entertaining and spooky. We talked about the b horror movies, Bela Lugosi and Dracula. Now my son is interested in seeing Dracula. So, we will be introducing him to the wide world of B movies this month.

To start the month off, the first book up to the plate, a supernatural thriller by Charles De Lint - From a Whisper to A Scream.


What spooky books will you be reading?


  1. I have a copy of Dracula the Undead but have not read it yet...I'm excited to see your review later on!

  2. Oooh, sounds fun! I'm not a huge fan of Halloween or spooky things or being scared. So I probably won't be reading anything too freaky.

  3. My mother-in-law is always talking about "Dark Shadows" and how she and her siblings used to scare each other in dark hallways and stairs.

    I love Frankenstein, and Bram Stoker's Dracula is awesome. Have you read Wuthering Heights? That one's a bit spooky.

    Maybe I will read Duma Key this month.

  4. That sounds like a month of great read. I think you'll enjoy de Lint's book, I did.

  5. I'm going to read Frankenstein as well. That should be fun.

  6. that's a great list for this month! glad your in on the Frank read-a-long. :)

  7. I don't think I have any spooky ones lined up for the month. Right now I'm just trying to get through some of my backlogged review pile!!

  8. Looks like a good booklist to me. I enjoyed FRANKENSTEIN when I read it several years ago, and I just finished (and loved) THE NIGHT WATCH. I hope to read some creepy short fiction in the next couple of weeks, too.
