All of my recent reads were Halloween inspired except for the last one above.

And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie I have never read Agatha Christie, but my dad has read just about everything she ever wrote. I thought a good old fashioned who-dunnit would be a nice change of pace. This was such a great book! Just the right amount of mystery, creepy and class. A great introduction for me into her writing.

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman I listened to this book. This was listed as #1 on so many Halloween must read lists that I lost count. Now I know why. This is an excellent story. So good in fact that when I found out it was also a graphic novel that I immediately checked them out of the library as soon as I was finished listening to it. This is Harry Potter for the horror kids. Dark, but not too dark, a little magic and interesting characters galore.

Horns - Joe Hill I ripped through this book pretty fast. Dark Humor and a few twists I did not see coming kept me wanting to keep reading much faster than I normally would. I only just found out that this is a movie now starring Daniel Radcliffe. I am really curious to see Harry Potter as vengeful demon. One of my favorite horror books for sure.

Lumberjanes Volume 2 - Graphic Novel I really thought the first volume was cute and well I had to find out how it all ended. This is really aimed at the 6th grade set but since I am pretty well immersed in the world of middle school and Boy Scouts, it was a fun little read for me.

A Corner of the Universe - Ann M. Martin This book is not my normal genre. Another one aimed at the middle schooler to high schooler but it showed up on a list and I decided to take the plunge. I read this in a day and a half. A record for me! It is a story about Autism and family and it just was so real and so sad. I totally cried. I think I am going to make my son read this book.
