Clwojick I recommend An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena and All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda! 4mo
Clwojick For those #GraphicNovel lovers, I suggest My Favorite Thing Is Monsters ( which I may have to reread), Chew, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and PaperGirls. 4mo
Lizpixie I‘ve already suggested non fiction about serial killers or murders. Anything by Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Peter Robinson, Ann Cleeves, Jo Nesbo, Claire Macintosh, Michael Connolly or Robert Crais. For ScandiThrillers you have Henning Mankell, Karin Fossum, Ann Holt, Arnaldur Indridason & Camilla Lackberg. There‘s also Stuart McBride, Thomas Harris, Chris Carter, Ruth Rendell, Gillian Flynn & Rachel Caine. Early Patricia Cornwall too. 4mo
Lizpixie For the #scavengerhunt prompt #boneinthetitle most of Kathy Reichs books have bone in the title, or the new release 4mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie I absolutely love the show Bones, and i quite enjoyed the one audiobook that i read by Kathy Reichs. I'll have to check out a few more by her :) 4mo
Lizpixie For #withawitchinit there‘s Practical Magic, Garden Spells by Sarah Addisen Allen, The Sparrow Sisters by Ellen Herrick, Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt, A Discovery Of Witches by Deborah Harkness & Kim Harrison‘s The Hollows series. 4mo
Lizpixie For #aboutavampire There‘s Ann Rice of course, Anno Dracula by Kim Newman, Salem‘s Lot by Stephen King, the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R.Ward, Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist, The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan, Sunshine by Robin McKinley(one of my faves), the Dark series by Christine Feehan, Midnights Daughter by Karen Chance & of course the True Blood series by Charlaine Harris.Also the early Anita Blake books 4mo
Lizpixie For #withzombiesinit there‘s The Girl With All The Gifts, The Bone Houses, Feed by Mira Grant, The Forest Of Hands And Teeth by Carrie Ryan, My Life As A White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland & The Reapers Are The Angels by Alden Bell. 4mo
Clwojick Ooooohhhhh! @Lizpixie comin‘ in with all the good RECs! (why isn‘t there a Bowing emoji?) (edited) 4mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie and I‘m with you 💯 on Practical Magic! That‘s one I seriously need to reread! I‘ve had it on my self since late last year. 4mo
Lizpixie For #abouthalloween there‘s Halloween Party by Agatha Christie, The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury or the short story collection Dead Leaves:8 Tales From The Witching Season by Kealan Patrick Burke. 4mo
Bookwormjillk @Lizpixie I was going to suggest Agatha Christie too. I have Murder on the Orient Express on my TBR, and I‘m guessing #somebodydies in that one. 4mo
Lizpixie For #pumpkinonthecover there‘s Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell, the above Dead Leaves by Kealan Patrick Burke, Crypt Suzette by Maya Corrigan & Death By Pumpkin Spice by Alex Erickson. 4mo
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk I‘ve had Murder on the Orient Express on my shelf for WAY too long. Hopefully I‘ll finally get to it in October. 4mo
Lizpixie For #thatscaresyou some books that had me shaking(which isn‘t easy to do)are Bird Box by Josh Malerman, The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty( I recommend the audiobook read by the author), The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone, Salem‘s Lot, Christine, The Tommyknockers, It, The Shining & Pet Sematery by Stephen King, The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson & The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. 4mo
kezzlou85 @Lizpixie I think you've named just about ever suggestion I thought of. Well done. You've had so many brilliant ideas. 4mo
Sarahreadstoomuch For the book with a #vampire I‘m planning on Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell - it shouldn‘t be scary at all, but I‘ve been waiting on it! Her graphic novel Pumpkinheads is terrific too and fills a couple categories. 4mo
madamereadsalot1 I'm planning to read In the Valley of the Sun for a black cover/ with a vampire/ over 200 pages/ where a character dies categories. 4mo
4thhouseontheleft One of my neighbor‘s was Megan Miranda, our kids used to be at school together, and she is so sweet! All the Missing Girls is fantastic, but her first books, Fracture and Vengeance, would also be a great fit for this challenge! 4mo
Kappadeemom So can one book be counted for several of the scavenger hunt items? 4mo
LokiDokey I enjoy books from Gillian Flynn and Kerri Maniscalco. I read a bunch of one off books... one of us is lying, then she was gone, girl on the train, the seven deaths of Evelyn hardcastle, and birdbox. 4mo
RainyDayReading Throwing in some more graphic novel recs for those that want them. For #Zombie there‘s Scooby Apocalypse, #vampire there‘s Day Men, for #Witch I highly recommend Spell on Wheels and for #someonedies there‘s Kill or Be Killed, Lady Killer or The Fade Out. Each of these (except for Spell on Wheels) are part of a series as well. I‘ll do some digging and drop back by with some book suggestions after I peruse my bookcase a bit 😊 4mo
Liatrek @Clwojick I wanted to check can one book be used to get multiple points in the different challenges? Example my copy of Murder on the links is black cover 1 point scary scavenger hunt, team theme mystery 2 points = 3 points or a book can only be used to get points in one category? 4mo
Clwojick @Liatrek yes, the points can be stacked. 4mo
Liatrek @Clwojick Thank you! Working on my Scare a thon spreadsheet 😊 I‘m so excited! 4mo
intothehallofbooks @Clwojick yay!! Thanks, I‘m excited!! 4mo

One of my favorite sections of books in my house. Richard Paul Evans is one of my favorite writers and who didn‘t like The Princess Bride. #theprincessbride #thewalk #mustreads

Abarat | Clive Barker

Underrated book appreciation post! Abarat has always been one of my favorite series and not many people that I‘ve talked to have read it or even heard of it. All of the books are feature painting by the author and the world is so amazing! I wish more people could appreciate this series. What is a series you wish more people knew of?

Scott_BookInvasion I‘ve heard a lot of good things about this. I don‘t read many series books that aren‘t comical/humorous - Magic 2.0 by Scott Meyer, Space Team by Barry J Hutchinson, Critical Failures by Robert Bevan 1y

RaimeyGallant Great reviews and photos! 2y
RaimeyGallant By the way, if you add the last few hundred people to like my posts in the last few days, it's about a 50 percent follow back rate, because they're recently active. I mentioned this to someone yesterday, and I checked today, and she has 156 followers and 43 welcome comments. :) Tag me tomorrow if you try this. I'd like to see what happens. 2y
