Monday Pep Rally: Books to Keep You Up at Night

If you'll recall, we've changed up our format a little bit for these posts. Because we've all gotten so used to getting our thoughts down in 140 characters, we're taking the discussion to twitter! Every Monday, we'll be talking about our Pep Rally question on twitter and we'd love you to join in. Just keep an eye out for the #MisfitPepRally hashtag!

I love this time of year. I love fall for all the reasons Marieke mentioned in her post a few weeks ago, plus the added bonus of HALLOWEEN (AKA, although it's not officially a government holiday yet, MY BIRTHDAY)!!

I'll give you a second to go and mark your calendars now.

Along with my love of Halloween comes a fondness for all things frightening. It's a weird relationship--I love being scared, but I hate waking up in the middle of the night and having staring contests with shadows until I manage to fall asleep again.

I've managed to watch most of the scary movies Netflix has to offer (which leaves a bit to be desired), as well as AMC's horror movie marathon, and rented as many flicks from AppleTV as my husband will stand (if you haven't watched The Conjuring, you SHOULD). Now I need books.

I typically read Stephen King or Dean Koontz when I'm in the mood for something chilling. I'm admittedly not well-read in the YA horror/thriller genre. (Although I LOVED Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares!) But you, my dear Misfiteers, are some of the most well-read people I know! 

So tell me, what are you some of YOUR favorite creepy reads? 
Let's talk about it on #MisfitPepRally today!
