  2. I love your Scare-o-meter! And your list too! I've heard great things about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but still haven't read it. Now would be a perfect timing, right? ;)
    I had the same reason for putting Dearly, Departed on my list. Not scary, but it has zombie.

  11. I don't really do spooky, so we kinda went non-spooky halloween costumes :)

    But I didn't know the Diviners was scary! I've been really looking forward to that one! I'll have to get brave!

  12. I'm all about Killer Pizza. Probably the best FooSerMoHu (Food Service & Monster Hunting) novel in the genre.
