Taking Tea in the Kasbah

Today I am over at the fabulous Fabio Bueno’s blog for his YAmondAY series where I’m talking about three creepily good YA books. Here’s an excerpt:

Last week, Elizabeth Fais shared three great spooky-fun YA reads. This week, I’m going to take things to a more eerie level with three creepy YA books. And what better time to curl up with a creeptastically good book than during the week of All Hallow’s Eve?

Occult and serial murders? Check. Creepy nursery rhymes that get stuck in your head like bad Halloween candy? Check. Intelligent, quirky heroines with supernatural gifts who get drawn into paranormal happenings? Check and check. These three spine-tingling books will certainly give you the shivers and have you double and triple checking you locked the door before going to bed. 

Head over to Fabio’s to find out which books made my Halloween Creeptastic Reads List this year. Also, if you leave a comment at Fabio’s by Sunday, November 4th at midnight, your name will be entered in a drawing to win an autographed copy of Libba Bray’s The Diviners. If you leave a comment at Fabio’s AND a comment here, your name will be entered twice. 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go lock the doors and turn on all of the lights in the kasbah. Paranormal activity and serial murderers are afraid of the light, right? Right?


And you, lovely readers – read any creeptacularly good books lately? Any books that made you want to leave the lights on all night? Sit, have some tea, and – wait a minute, did you hear that? Is it just me or did the hairs on the back of your neck just stand on end, too? Perhaps we should move away from the windows…

  2. You suggested some TERRIFIC reads by great authors, Tami. The best way to spend a creeptastic Halloween in my book (pun intended)! The only book that scared me so much I had to have ALL the lights on in the house while I was reading it was The Shining, but Stephen King. It scared me so much, I could never make myself watch the movie.

    • Thanks! The Shining is very creepy. The movie is even more so. The books aren’t quite to that level of creepiness.

    • I always love to talk about the great YA books out there today. Thanks for letting me do that on your blog!

    • It’s a classically awesome Libba Bray book. If you loved Beauty Queens, I think you’d like The Diviners.
