Emma Where is Ray Bradbury's The October Country????


Crazy Uncle Ryan Well, if you think it should be there and it's not than you should vote for it.


message 3: by LilaBird (new)

LilaBird Just added Felinian by M. Clifford . SUCH a good book! Spooky, eerie, takes place in Sleepy Hollow - loved it!!


[Name Redacted] I'd add The Witch's Buttons -- this was a favorite for me when I was a boy.

Same with The Monster's Ring and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. And all the kids in my elementary school loved The Baby Uggs Are Hatching every Halloween.

Sarrah Hunger Games? Really?

I thought the exact same thing.

No kidding! At the top of the page it said I had two books in the top 100 of this list in my "read" list, and I was so sure it was going to be something from the Goosebumps series. What does the Hunger Games have to do with Halloween?

It's number 10
