Back From the Lake, Time to ... Hop?

After spending a few days at Lake Powell floating around on a houseboat, my world's still rocking a bit. The swaying motion has mostly subsided, but everything else is a-tilt - the house is a mess, I'm way behind on reviews, I've got piles of laundry to tackle, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera (as Yul Brenner would say). So, instead of doing this:

I'm going to spend my Friday ignoring my miles long to-do list in favor of something much more fun: the Book Blogger Hop. Care to join me? Just click on over to Crazy For Books to get all the details.

In honor of Halloween, this week's question is: What's your favorite spooky book (mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)?

- I'm a little stumped on this one. I used to read a lot more horror than I do now, so I'm just going to go ahead and say anything by Stephen King. A cop-out, I know, but that's all I can think of. How about some suggestions? What's the spookiest book you've ever read?

If you're stopping by via the Hop, welcome! I'm so glad you found me. Feel free to take a look around BBB, leave me a comment or two or ten, and please be sure to leave a link to your blog so I can return the favor. If you're one of my faithful readers - thanks for sticking with me. You don't know how much your loyalty means. Have a great weekend, everybody!


  1. I have recently realised I am not a SK fan, he writes in excessive in my opinion.

    I love these kind of reads, come over and get some recommendations.

    Welcome back

  2. I'm not a huge fan of scary things. Does Twilight count? :)
    I loved Nancy Drew when I was a kid...and I used to read a lot of Phyllis A. Whitney (mystery/romance). I do like Lee Child's "Jack Reacher" books...I've read a couple of those in the past uh...yeah. :)

  3. Hi! Thank you for stopping by at Books4Juliet! I'm a new follower now too =) Have a lovely weekend! See you around! xoxo.

  4. Thx for stopping by my site! I am picturing the creepy idea of Jane Eyre waking up in the middle of the night to see someone in her room with her veil on. Or leaving the candle burning outside her door after burning Edward Rochester in his bed. Maybe it's a stretch!! :-) New follower!!

  5. One thing Steven King does so well is getting a reader to fly through his pages. I think sometimes you even forget to keep breathing, you get so caught up in the story.

  6. Seriously, you just need to give that girl whatever she wants (: I don't really read to many spooky books...just the murder mystery type of book!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
