Celebrating Community by Reading Scary Books

BlogHer Original Post

the little strange sarah watersIn addition to her own extensive reading piles, Heather is also participating in The Estella Society's The Little Stranger RIP Readalong. It's so very tempting but the timing doesn't work for me. I could possibly grab it from the library and read it in October.

Nadia at A Bookish Way of Life is considering The Legend of Sleepy Hollow . It was one of the very first books I read for this event and I'm tempted to reread this year if only to study Washington Irving's most excellent use of the semicolon. I believe that upon my first reading I counted 12 of them in a single paragraph.

Grace, who blogs at Books Without Any Pictures, reminded me that I still have not read Ransom Rigg's bestselling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I've wanted to read that since before it was released. R.I.P. gives me a great reason to bump that up the list!

You see what I did there? I just added at least three more potential books to my list by visiting a handful of blogs. I'll probably add ten more books to my to be read list before the end of the weekend. I love that.

What's your favourite spooky book?
