So... You Want To Read A Scary Book.
Welcome to October, the month when, more than any other time of year, our reading taste tends to turn toward the dark side--and by "dark side" I'm not talking Star Wars (that'll be in December). We tend to look for books about witches and demons and ghosts (oh my!) and other things that go bump in the night. A few prefer to read paranormal/supernatural love stories (think Twilight), but if you're anything like me, you desire an honest to goodness scare. You know, the sort of book you read with every single light in the house turned on.
A Little Spooky!
This is why we've constructed a display of scary books, complete with a scare rating system. Some of the books are not scary at all, but involve close encounters with supernatural or paranormal creatures (think Twilight). Others... well, good luck getting their uber-creeptastic plots out of your mind when you're walking to the bathroom at night (There's nothing lurking in those shadows, right? Better run anyway). Most fall somewhere in between on the scare scale. Either way, we definitely have something to cater to everyone's scary book taste
