It's Halloween time, people! So, keep your suggestions scary :)

Trisha | 31440 comments oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!!! Love it!!

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1) by Maureen Johnson vs Frost by Marianna Baer


message 3: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments The second one looks interesting! Vic and I still haven't decided on what to read on Halloween night yet. Last year, we read The Shining and since we are tough chicks, we thought it was not scary enough :)

Kathy | 7950 comments I loved The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1) by Maureen Johnson really creppy and so good! I need to look for some books! :)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Those books look interesting, Trisha! I think the second one sounds really good!

I will have to look for a pair tomorrow.

Tracy (tracesoftracy) | 95 comments Does the pair have to be a book everyone hasn't read?


message 7: by Adam (new)

Adam | 180 comments We should do Time riders. I'm reading it right now and I really like it so far.


message 8: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Well since we have many people in the group that would be nearly impossible. So don't worry about who's read it and who hasn't. If they have already they can still vote for which one they liked more! :D


message 9: by Tracy (new)

Tracy (tracesoftracy) | 95 comments I think Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine, #1) by Ransom Riggs and The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff would be a good match?

message 12: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Me too :) I saw the first one in the store and the pictures are scary!


message 13: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments oooohhh! I read Miss Peregrine's! I loved it! The pictures were great! I have an ebook version, wish I had a paperback!


message 14: by Tracy (new)

Tracy (tracesoftracy) | 95 comments or if most of everyone read that book we could switch it up to Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross and The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff lol. Doesn't matter to me (:

message 19: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments I was going to read it and it came in for me at the library. One look at the pics and that was enough to scare the life out of me! I didn't read it because I'm such a wimp! If I had other people reading with me I would try! *hint, hint* lol! :D
