Happy Halloween! And Welcome, November! This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Standard

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is but a few days away!  And some more frightfully fun and delightfully scary recommendations for tales of Stories that Go Boo for You still are making it our way. While I pause to wipe away some  pumpkin guts and toss a knife or two on the table, let me see what we have to offer up this Sunday morning:

More Recs of Stories that Go Boo for You

🎃From P.R.:

Those are some serious pumpkin carvings. My sister, nephew and I have tried pumpkin carving and it’s really not as east as t.v. makes it.
Here I go with more stories good for a Halloween read.
The Tourist by Clare London
Lesser-Bred series by Adrienne Wilder

🎃Ami:

I don’t celebrate Halloween since well, it’s not really Indonesian traditions, although I do like seeing all the decorations!

As for some Halloween Read — I HIGHLY recommend Stephen Osborne’s “Duncan Andrews” series, which involves detective with a ghost boyfriend. Or maybe “Winter” by Josh Lanyon or Motel.Pool by Kim Fielding.

Happy Halloween!

🎃From Jen:

For a book to be scary to me I have to care if the characters are in harm’s way and the spooky elements need to be more paranormal.

I am currently reading the new anthology Devil Take Me. I am on the second story by TA Moore and it is pretty scary. (The first story by Jordan L. Hawk was more whimsical than scary – though still really good.)

Some other books that got my “boo” going were:
A Light Amongst Shadows by Kelly York
Spirits series by Jordan L. Hawk
Tyack & Frayne series by Harper Fox
P.S. I Spook You by SE Harmon
A Frost of Cares by Amy Rae Durreson
Whyborne & Griffin series by Jordan L. Hawk

🎃From P.R. again:

A lot of gays go all out for Halloween. LOL, I dressed in drag with my friends one year, rented a limo & went to all the bars. And then there’s the Haunted Halsted Halloween Parade in Boystown Chicago. And with the mention of haunted, and yours with houses…
– you’ve got to include haunted houses – a pair by Poppy:
LOST SOULS, & DRAWING BLOOD, by Poppy Z. Brite
– And what’s more haunted than one of my fav locales – a fav set in NOLA:
THE WOLF AT THE DOOR by Jameson Currier
– Of course, another in NOLA – classic ghost story & good psycho thriller:
DUST OF WONDERLAND by Lee Thomas
– And you can’t mention NOLA without its iconic author & son, a pair from a pair of Rices:
INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE by Anne Rice
A DENSITY OF SOULS by Christopher Rice

🎃From our own Chaos Moondrawn:

Ally Blue Down
Sarah Waters Affinity (f/f)
Bump In the Night series from Riptide
Jacqueline Rohrbach Speak With the Dead
One of the stories I read and reviewed this week is The Werewolf on Lowre Few Lane by Bryce Bentley-Tales.  It’s a first novel by this author and it’s amazing.  YA, full of 13 and 14 year olds on an incredible adventure that’s scary, life altering, and very fitting this Halloween.  I just adored it.  I think you will too.  And it is on the list for YA Books that go Boo for You. Another?  Green Death by Madeleine Ribbon!  A post apocalyptic thriller that had  me up late at night

And Welcome, November!
