Reading a scary book is a must at Halloween. Dahl and Bradbury were my favorites as a kid. But, recently, I’ve discovered other authors like Patrick Ness and Stephen Cosgrove.

Finding the right tale is hard and reading new authors is risky. You open a book and hope it delivers on its promise- a good story. As you turn each page, suspense builds or characters reveal themselves. When you finish that last chapter, you are in a state of shock as you set the book on the night stand and turn out the light. A great read effects your dreams.

This year is exceptionally hard as I have several titles from unknown authors. I don’t know which one will deliver . . . .

The Children of Green Knowe by L.M Boston
Scary Stories to tell before Dark by Alvin Schwartz
Monster Mission by Eva Ibbotson
The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier
The Haunting of Falcon House by Eugene Yelchin

It is almost midnight as I snuggle beneath my quilts, with my hot chocolate and baseball ready on the night stand. Wondering which story will satisfy my bedtime reading requirements.

If you recommend one of these terrifying stories, write me. I am always looking forward to a good scare at Halloween.
