Spooktacular Giveaway Hop (open internationally)

I just love this time of year, don’t you? Pumpkin spice coffee drinks, hot caramel apple cider, and my favorite holiday of all—Halloween! I used to love dressing up—I really need to start putting together a costume a year in advance because of how expensive all of the accessories can get!—and going door to door collecting candy. But most of all, this season puts me in the mood for spooky stories, whether I read them on my own or listen to them around a campfire.

While I could read a spooky story any time of the year, around Halloween is my favorite time to do so. So far this fall, I’ve read Carrie by Stephen King and now I’m re-reading The Shining so I can get myself a copy of Doctor Sleep when I’m finished.

This year I signed up to participate in my first giveaway hop with I Am a Reader. Be sure to visit all of the other stops on the tour—there are going to be a lot of fun giveaways for you to enter, all with a spooky theme! (See the entire list of participants at the end of this post.)

  1. Edgar Allan Poe I can remember being very scary! These day I barely have time to shave both legs in the show let alone pick up a book!

  2. Poe has always been one of my favorites when it comes to scary/spooky stories, but I remember when I was younger The Dollhouse Murders was one of my favorite spooky stories as well.

    1. That one has always been my favorite Poe story. We had to write a story related to it in eighth grade. I don’t remember what, exactly, I wrote or even if it was kept. I wish I knew where it was! Long gone, I’m sure.

  3. I love hearing personal encounters and also reading a handful of spooky stories, but it’s nothing like hearing people relive their biggest fears.

  4. When I was younger there was this creepy story my dad always used to tell me. I can’t remember the whole story but I know it had something to do with different bathrooms and a dog-killer licking a hand. It scared(scares) the crap out of me.

  5. I would have to go with Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist and The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe .
    Thanks for a giveaway! 🙂

  6. I always liked the story where the woman makes a deal with the undertaker of the prsion she is in. She’s going to escape by hiding in the next coffin and he’ll come dig her up. But after she’s buried, she lights a match to see who she’s int he coffin with and it’s the guy who was supposed to dig her up!!!! Creeps me out every time. Super claustrophobic 🙂

  7. I don’t have a favorite spooky book but my favorite spooky author is Stephen King. I recently finished Needful Things. That book was really good

  8. One of my favourite stories is Neil Gaiman’s “Click-clack the Rattlebag” (released last Halloween). It’s terrifying even when you already know how it ends.
    I’m beyond excited that you’re giving away the works of Edgar Allan Poe! That’s right at the top of my wishlist.

  9. Probably “The Raven,” and numerous other Poe stories/poems. They were the most fun I had with poetry in all my years at school. 🙂

  10. Haven’t read many spooky stories but I really liked reading “The Unquiet” by Jeannine Grasse, it’s a ghost story about a haunted school pool.

  11. Scariest story for me is just about anything by Edgar Allan Poe. He has such imagery in his writing even in today’s society his stuff has resonance. The tell tale heart my absolute favorite.

  12. I have so many favorites that it’s hard to name just one! Really any of the ones written by Edgar Allan Poe and Sleepy Hollow come to the top of my mind.
