Spooky Read 2013!



My partner in crime Miranda and I collaborated the other night and finally decided on a book to read in October. This year we decided on Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury. For those new to this blog, every year we pick a spooky book to read during October. Nothing gets me in eerie mode like reading something macabre. 

Previous year's reads are Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders, Dracula, and The Haunting of Hill House. (My favorite of these is by far Dracula.) I spent lots of time digging around Goodreads looking for a good choice for this October, and after an extensive texting discussion with Miranda, we thought that Ray Bradbury would treat us well this Halloween. 

You can find this book pretty much anywhere, because, I mean, this is Ray Bradbury we're talking about. I put mine on hold at the library. This book should be pretty easy to find. I'll be posting my review on October 30--plenty of time to be thoroughly creeped out. I'd love it if you joined us this year--if you do decide to read along, please let me know in the comments!

I bought that book when he died but I haven't read it yet. Maybe now's a good time.

This sounds great but I have a crime mystery waiting for me—a sweet gift from a very thoughtful friend. :) Does that count as spooky? Probably not, but it's my October read!

I would totally join in, but I'll be reading something macabre in its own right: my CPA auditing textbook.

I want to read that!

p.s. have you read The Picture of Dorian Gray? My book club read that for October one year and it was good. Just an idea for another time.
