  1. Wow!!! What a list!! I just finished MARA DYER and loved it! Thanks for sharing! And being part of the fest.

  2. CORALINE is just creepy, isn't it? :D
    Neil Gaiman is an amazing storyteller.

  3. Oooo a lot of these look good—and I haven't heard of half of them! Yay for something new to read! And how could something titled "The Dollhouse Murders" not be amazing?

  4. Great list. You can just tell these are dark buy their titles can't you? I'd like to try writing a really dark book with a really fluffy title. Something like "Let's Hit the Mall" but where they all end up being murdered and coming back as zombies who haunt the shoe department at Macys. BTW the captcha for this comment? "Curse Up". No joke. Great title right there.

  5. I have read Descended by Blood and really enjoyed it. There are a few more on this list that I am chomping at the bit for LOL What a fun month of sharing.

  6. There is really some variety on your list! I've read a few of them and need to make note of some others. :)

  7. I use to love reading The Dollhouse Murders when I was younger. It has always been one of my favorite books even as I got older. You have a really great list.


I absolutely love hearing from my readers! Thank you so much for your comments. Please consider yourself awesome!
