These sound good, although I'm not much of a scary book reader. Silence of the Lambs was good, though.

I'm too scared to read a scary book, I'm afraid and scared to say.
I love the creepy covers, though.
Happy Halloween to you.

Great recs! I'm another scaredy-cat, but I do like the sound of these! :)

Ooo~ Some good picks in there. Personally, I cracked open a copy of The Stand to plow through today. ;)

Hi everyone. Yes, it's officially Halloween now. Most of those are scary-scary. Just some creepy elements.
