Ya’ll- it’s a great time of the year! The leaves are turning, the weather is getting a bit of a nip in the air (well, kind of where I live) and the stores are filled with Halloween candy (mmmmm… candy pumpkins!) I was talking with Wesley from Library Educated way back months ago and mentioned that I had a sort of idea for the month of October- a spook-tacular idea (get ready- spook-tacular is the word of October!) So, I chatted with Wesley through email, and somehow managed to make this idea- that wasn’t even fully formed- clear enough for Wesley to hit the ground running- and producing 3 spooky-riffic guest posts. Then, partly because of a recent #BSCReadalong (yay for nostalgia reading!) and partly because I’ve been digging out RL Stine books for the 90’s Nostalgia Fright Fest hosted by Charleen @ Cheap Thrills (and oh yeah- partly because I met RL STINE this year- and totally fan-girled like my pre-teen self would have!) I decided to give RL Stine some major spook-tacular love during Spook-Tacular October! What is on the agenda for Spook-Tacular October? Right this way folks- just watch out for the zombies, skeletons, and the other creepy stuff that you might come across………………………..
So, here’s the details. The 411. The schedule. The where to find the spook-tacular posts!

Oh I’m looking forward to reading all of these spook-tacular posts T! I LOVED RL Stine growing up, from the Goosebumps series to the Point Horror books he wrote (I read them ALL). My 10yr old read a bunch of Goosebumps books last year, and I think its what actually got her into reading in a BIG way, even more so than she already was. So yay for Mr RL Stine!
Yipppee! RL Stine had a major place in my childhood- I totally credit him with my love of a thriller! My brother read The Goosebumps series while I was reading Fear Street. I plan on checking out his newest book, Party Games, as soon as I can!
What a fun idea! I can’t wait to read the posts. I love October-and all the special treats!! Have you read Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham? or Gone Girl?
Thanks so much! Me too, October is a great time of year! I have read Gone Girl (and I really liked it!) but I have not read Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham- I do want to (I adored her as Lorelai on Gilmore Girls!)
Wonderful blogging theme for this time of the year. I’ve been planning some similar posts on my blog – spotlighting and reviewing books from the paranormal and horror genres. However, that’s on hold until Zombie week passes – I’m on the countdown to the Premiere of The Walking Dead now and psyched about this! I look forward to checking back and reading your “Spook-tacular” posts this month 🙂
Thank you so much! October really does have so many books/themes that you can go with! 🙂 🙂 I’ll be on the lookout for your paranormal and horror genre- my brother totally digs those books!
Cute idea! I look forward to all the posts!
Thanks so much! Going to have a little for everyone- some scary posts, some not so scary reading selections- and Wesley is going to crack you up with her last 2 guest posts. She is funny!
