Thanks for letting everyone know! I should have mentioned the current buddy read going on with my nomination. I wanted to save Frankenstein because I like reading horror around Halloween. Just thought I'd nominate it in case anyone else feels the same.

NancyJ (nancyjjj) I'm reading Frankenstein with another group in October. I agree it's perfect for October.

I second Kite Runner and Good Omens.
