Day Seven: Five scary reads to get you in the spirit
When it comes to October and the Halloween season, I go out of my way to scare myself. It’s all part of the fun, right? The one thing I won’t do though is Haunted Houses (more on that in a future post – nice tease, right?). I get most of my scares through movies or reading, which coincidentally are my two biggest passions in life (minus family of course).
This Halloween season, I’m reading David Moody’s Autumn series to get my horror fix. I’m on a zombie kick lately, and his books are excellent. Aside from everything he’s ever written, I offer up these five choice horror selections for you to enjoy this season.
As a note, I did decide to only include books that were available as of today in my list. There’s some absolutely amazing horror novels coming up towards the end of the month that I would also recommend, but I didn’t want you to get pissed that the books I recommended weren’t available.
In case you’re curious, the books that I recommend, but aren’t out yet are:
The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
Dead of Night

Day Six: Countdown to Halloween
While looking at my site analytics from yesterday, I saw that I got some hits from a website I wasn’t quite expecting. One of my blog’s followers made a quick post on her blog about Countdown to Halloween the Halloween, so I decided to take a peek and see what the deal was.
What I found was a site dedicated to blogs celebrating the 31 Days of October in a countdown to Halloween. Pages and pages of Halloween blogs were immediately at my fingertips. There’s definitely a little bit of everything available to fans of the season and I highly recommend checking it out. I made a comment on the participant post, and now I’m on their list of Halloween blogs.
Since they did me a favor by linking me up on their linky party (is that what they’re really called? I’m new to this whole phenomenon), I thought it was only right to return the favor.
Please use today to check out some new blogs over at Countdown to Halloween because it really is a great Halloween resource.
