My favourite Halloween books 2014!!

Hey guys! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
So for those of you who don't know or have forgotten or simply CBA, tomorrow is..

I myself am not a big dresser-upper. However, that does not mean I don't like to freak my self out. Whether it's with books or movies, I sorta enjoy the thrill..then can't sleep at night.

My favourite books for Halloween

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick. 

Why? Because this book is full of intense thrills and mysteries and a smidge of comedy and a few sprinkles of romance. It's perfect for getting majorly freaked out, then not, then getting freaked out again. It's a great, great feeling.

Goodreads summary: Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late. 

Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage. 

In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there... and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target. 

But nothing is as it seems in the mountains, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally? 

BLACK ICE is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous…


Magic and Decay by Rachel Higginson
This was a really witty, exciting and light read and what's more, it's a mash up! It made me fangirl ×1000 and is perfect for Halloween!
Goodreads summary: Magic and Decay is a Rachel Higginson Halloween Special!

This fast and fun novel packs a punch when Rachel takes three of her favorite couples from three different series and throws them into the Zombie Apocalypse. 


Eden and Kiran from the Star-Crossed Series, Ivy and Ryder from the Siren Series and Reagan and Hendrix from Love and Decay join forces to survive a regular but deadly day at the end of the world. 


Ivy’s seductive Siren call doesn’t just apply to human men. Zombies of all shapes, sizes and states of decay flock to her, unable to resist her pull. Armed with limited resources and dwindling Magic, the three couples fight alongside each other to stay alive and unbitten. But even with all these supernatural powers combined, no one is safe when Zombies are involved.


Magic and Decay is a stand-alone novel. You do not need to have read any of these series to enjoy this book
The Fall by Bethany Griffin
Think of this as the voice of that girl in Edgar Allan Poe’s  The Fall of the House of Usher. While it lays off on romance, it is full of some sinister events.

Goodreads summary:  Madeline Usher is doomed.

She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.

Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life—revealed through short bursts of memory—has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.

In the end, can Madeline keep her own sanity and bring the house down?The Fall is a literary psychological thriller, reimagining Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Fall of the House of Usher.

Beware the Wild by Natalie C Parker
Confession, I haven't actually read this YET, but I've bought it and it's ready for me to read tomorrow. From the looks of it-and the sample I read on Kindle, it seems pretty cool. 

Goodreads summary: It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.
