Sooo you might have noticed that I skipped TTT last week…after starting just two weeks prior to that. It was just so hard! I couldn’t think of any books I would change the titles of, not to mention what I would change those titles to. So, I took the easy way out and skipped it.
This TTT is Halloween freebies, aka so much more manageable than title revisions!

Let’s Talk Halloween
Before I get to my list, I want to bore you with some rambling. I love Halloween, but my love of the holiday always sneaks up on me. I don’t really get all that creative with costumes, I don’t usually decorate, and I typically don’t go to Halloween parties. Still, there’s something about the holiday that speaks to me. I don’t like scary movies but I love to hate getting scared at haunted houses. I don’t usually eat a lot of candy but I give myself all the cavities for Halloween. I love the crisp nights, seeing trick or treaters, and driving past everyone’s decorations.
And this year, I’m learning that I love spooky books! So, to pay tribute to my newfound love, here’s a list of my top ten spooky, unusual, and disturbing reads from this year.

I think my love of Halloween all started with my love of Scooby Doo. Honestly, what’s better than Scooby Doo? Anyway, go to your local library/bookstore/Kindle and grab yourself some of these books! I guarantee you won’t regret it.
