Spook-tober Is Here!

Spook-tober Is Upon Us!



     It was a dark and stormy night. The wind shook the side of the house, thunder crashed while lightning danced across the landscape. And in the distance, a lone wolf howled his hunger and frustration. You sit alone in your room, seeing and hearing the cacophony around you, when all of a sudden you realize.... this is the perfect setting to read or watch some scary stuff!

     So, what do you do? You turn on Netflix, only to realize that the films available are not quite what you are looking for. You sift through your DVD/Blu-ray collection to discover that you have already watched "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Halloween" so many times that you can quote it. Scrolling through your other streaming services brings you up with even more empty-handedness until you throw down your phone in frustration and scream "Why can't I find anything scary???????"

     Believe me when I tell you that we have all been there. But, have no fear! Because despite finding a lack of anything truly scary to watch during said storm, there are plenty of books to read that will fuel that love of the horror-fying, and spook-tacular frights! Here are some great suggestions to get you in the Halloween spirit!
