1. Read by candlelight or flashlight: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness - Seems like a good one to read by flashlight. Sort of set the mood.
2. Magical Realism: The Accident Season by Moira Fowley Doyle - This was recommended by Moonlight Murder (who I would tag if I could figure out how!) and it sounds interesting and like a quick read.
3. Witches: Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter - This book doesn't come out until September 20th but I'm adding it because I am SO excited for it. Vasilisa the Beautiful is one of my favorite fairy tales, and Baba Yaga's a witch, so it counts.
4. Genre - Horror: The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty - Technically started this one a while ago but I'm waiting to finish it when the bingo challenge starts. Hopefully that's not cheating.
5. Black cat:
6. Diverse writers can be spooky fun!:
7. Ghost stories and haunted houses: The Turn of the Screw by Henry James - I've heard really good things about this one. And a cocktail recipe I could drink while reading it. Just saying.
8. Young Adult Horror: The Bargaining by Carly Anne West - It's a reread but I've been looking for an excuse to dive into it again, especially since I rushed through the end.
9. Scary Women (Authors): Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge - Started reading this one yesterday so hopefully that's doesn't count as cheating, like The Exorcist.
10. Reads with friends:
11. Grave or Graveyard:
12. Genre- Mystery: Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten - I think it's a mystery. Sounds like one, anyway.
13. Free Space!
15. Creepy Crawlies: The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone - Spiders, man. That's a big nope for me. But I gotta.
16. Fall into a good book:
17. Locked room mystery: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie - One of my favorites and deserving of a reread.
18. It was a dark and stormy night: The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle - I've owned it for a couple years now and still have never read it.
19. Set in New England:
20. Full moon:
21. Vampires vs. Werewolves: 30 Days of Night by Steve Niles - Found it at a used bookstore. I saw bits of the movie and always found the concept completely fascinating.
22. Supernatural: Mr. Monster by Dan Wells - Got it for Christmas and am dying to reread it.
23. Classic Horror: Dracula by Bram Stoker - I've been wanting to read it since I rewatched Dracula: Dead and Loving It last month.
25. Set on Halloween:
