Tomorrow is Halloween! I've prepped by watching Halloween (naturally), picking up some delicious single-serve bags of kettle corn for the trick-or-treaters and ordering (though not yet receiving!) some pieces for my costume off of Amazon. One thing I haven't done is read a scary book. Though I totally should. And so should you!
Might I recommend Rick Yancey's The Monstumologist? It's so goosebumpingly good. And yes, I'll admit that since I usually get my reading in at night just before bed, I stayed up really late one night to finish it, just so that I didn't have to read it in the creepy dark for one more night. Whenever students tell me they are looking for a scary book, this one is at the top of my list*.
