I just finished reading The List by J.A. Konrath. This book sucked up a lot of time today, but I don't feel bad in the least. Well worth it. No woo-woo, but a lot of science. Very cool. And scary.
And before that I read Eerie by Blake and Jordan Crouch. You think it might be woo-woo, but then it isn't, but then again...
Both of these stories engaged me. After all, it's the month to be frightened.
Are there books that scream October to you?
It's all better with friends.
