#currentlyreading
I've just returned a lot of library books (run out of time on them) but I'm actually kinda glad- I can focus on some books I own now! 😂👍

Hopefully the tagged book won't be too scary for me lol 😳🤣

Look at all the freebies I got from StokerCon! I can't wait to read these and put them in the hands of all the patrons at my library for the sake of Summer Scares! The middle image is a badass tote bag.

I also got to hear Grady Hendrix talk about "bigfoot dong", his words exactly. ?

Being a picky reader and not having much history with the horror genre, I was a bit skeptical. The book consist of short dark "campfire" stories written by different authors. The stories are also vastly different so you are bound to like some if not all of them. Personally I had a few favourites and some I mist likely won't be revisiting. It's still a really good book. If you like this sort of thing, it's defiatly worth a read. ?

Not usually one for the horror genre, I grabbed this book because Leigh Bardugo had done a story in it. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book as a whole, and nearly every story had something that was able to draw me in. I didn‘t get many (if any) of the inspiration references for these stories, but it was still an enjoyable and intense read without them.

Had a really productive reading month for #screamathon! Read some great creepy stories, a terrifying nonfiction, and some humorous scary stories.

12 books in all with one audiobook.

My favorites were probably I‘ll Be Gone in the Dark, Certain Dark Things and Slasher Girls & Monster Boys.

Thanks again to @4thhouseontheleft for hosting this fun October readathon!

4thhouseontheleft I‘m glad you enjoyed it! Great selection! 9mo

I absolutely loved this collection of horror and thriller short stories by YA authors! It was perfect for the season and gave me lots of creepy vibes. Some of the stories even spooked me a bit, and I‘m not usually scared easily! Jay Kristoff‘s “Sleepless” was definitely my favorite!

All of the stories featured in this book are based on horror movies (except for a dark Alice In Wonderland) and I really enjoyed them. The few that I didn't care for was simply because I didn't know the movies they were based on. All-in-all, a great anthology!

Little Elvira approves of this book! I love short story collections and it is unfortunately rare for me to say but I enjoyed every story in this collection. I actually had to take a break for a couple of days because I had gotten creeped out. There are some trigger warnings with some of the stories but also some badass young ladies. I will have to look up some of the authors to read their other stories.

All of the thumbs up, maybe even jazz hands! This is the book I wanted #TheMerrySpinster to be. It is a supposedly YA anthology of short stories that use songs, television, movies, and literature as inspiration. It was fun to guess the source, but also these are some genuinely creepy stories. OMG In the Forest Dark and Deep was 😬😬 so tense, so good, probably my favorite.

Good, not great, book for spooky reading. Nothing particularly scared me or creeped me out - and I am easily creeped out. I enjoyed the stories. Probably my favorite was Hide and Seek. Worth reading. And I loved the cover. #freezerworthy #LitsyReadingChallenge2017

I'm actually terrified of Michael Myers, the Halloween movies, all Nightmare on Elm Street movies, Friday the 13th movies, AND Ernest Scared Stupid (I know, right?!) My brother is evil. But he was a very brilliant unpaid babysitter. #EvilSiblings #SmartSiblings #ScaredyCat

😰😰😰 Excellent pick for any fan of horror or short stories. The horror in this book isn't the fantasy type of horror with ghosts and zombies and the like but the real, horrible things that people face everyday, mixed with a touch of the fantastic. Horror as a genre is slowly growing on me. If you want to try give a horror novel a try, this is a good place to start...but maybe read it with all the lights on
