"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Eli to the nth's Spooktacular Books Challenge

For October this year I've decided to do a Spooktacular Books Challenge.  I'm going through my shelves and picking out books which fall into the "spooky" category!  I really want to get my readers involved, so if you want to participate here's some things I ask that you do:
  1. Take the header above and link back to this post
  2. Pick 3 or more "spooky books" to review in October (Check this list or this list out if you need suggestions!)
  3. Create a home post with the list of books
  4. Link to your home post in the linky below
  5. No using books you've read before October
Easy Peasy!  I'm really excited to start this, as Halloween is my favorite holiday, even at 23!  

My Picks for Spooktacular Books:
  1. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children  by Ransom Riggs - How can I not include this book in a Spooktacular Books Challenge?  The creepy little girl on the cover is reason enough.  
  2. Evernight by Claudia Gray -  I'm trying to get back into this sort of vampire story, and vamps are perfect for Halloween.  I think what really intrigues me is the mystery at the school! (MY REVIEW)
  3. Fallen by Lauren Kate - I am a sucker for a good angel story.  This has a haunting quality to it that lends itself nicely to Halloween, after all November1st is All Saints' Day.
  4. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce - I've had this book for a while (My TBR list is through the roof, don't give me any grief!), and I got to meet Jackson at Dragon*Con this September.  Hearing her talk about the book re-wetted my appetite just in time for Halloween!
  5. Z for Zachariah by Robert O'Brien - A 16 year old girl all alone after a catastrophic nuclear disaster thinking she's all alone until she sees fire smoke....dun dun dun!  Definitely spooky!
  6. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantasky - I need some romance after all this darkness and heavy reading!  Love is in the fall air, and Halloween is perfect to fall in love with a vampire!
  7. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry - You can't have a Spooktacular Books Challenge without zombies!  This book looks so awesome, love the cover, and I can't wait to read it! (MY REVIEW)
There's my list, an odd number for an odd month.  Ambitious for me, but I'm really excited to do it!  Let me know if you're participating or even if you're doing your own type of Spooktacular reading! Happy Halloween!
