  7. There are so many to choose from! A few that come immediately to mind are The Devil You Know by Mike Carey, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, The Strain by Guillermo del Toro, Sunglasses After Dark by Nancy Collins, and a collection of short stories about female vampires called Women of the Night that includes stories by Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, and others. If I had to narrow it down though, I guess the spooky tales I’m most passionate about at the present moment are the Locke & Key graphic novels by Joe Hill.

  9. Although this may not be so much “spooky,” I must say that Margaret Atwood’s “A Handmaid’s Tale,” was indeed the most chilling version of the future I’ve ever read.

    So I really don’t have a favourite book right now, however, when the
    purolator brings me these awesome books I will certainly let you know.
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I would really like to win, mysteries
    are my favourite books.
    I have just finished reading Still Life by Joy Fielding and it will scare you
    for sure.

  12. There are many scary books which I have loved… or hated while reading them (because they scared the poop out of me), but still kept reading… ‘The Exorcist’ by William Peter Blatty is one of the scariest books I’ve EVER read. Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories too have frightened me. Please accept this as my entry. Thank you!

  15. The Bone Collector by Jeffrey Deaver. I’d like to drop my name in the virtual hat – thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Oh my where to start, I have so many but one of my faves has to be a series by Jean Kilogradis – Covenant With the Vampire! Thanks and good luck everyone who enters!

  17. My favorite scary book is Phantoms by Dean Koontz but Stephen Kings’s book, It, comes in a close second

  18. It has been years since I’ve read these books, but when I was younger I would often read any book from the “Scary Stories” series by Alvin Schwartz to satisfy my desire to be thoroughly freaked out. Truly creepy stuff.

  19. I think one of the scariest books I have read is Night Stone by Rick Hautala. I first read it as a teen and have read many scary books since but this one sticks in my mind. The feelings you get of being alone in a place far out in the country with no one there to save you and not knowing what is going to be uncovered gets me everytime! Even more so because this one involves a child- your child.
    Please enter me in your contest for the books and I hope everyone who reads this will pick this oldie but goodie up.

  20. I would have to say a book I read when I was a teen, and the spookiest thing is I can’t find it anywhere. I’m still on the hunt for it it’s about the devil and a young girl who he entices at the beginning with a red ball.
