Halloween is my favorite time of the year! The month when spooky, scary, and sinister things are thought to come out and play; to stray from their worlds to ours for a short time. I celebrate in style every year: I make the month of October one giant horrorfest! I want to take these last few days before Halloween—the main event—to talk about the books I read, their merits, and what you should be reading on the most frightening day of the year! The reviewed books include: The Forest of Hands and Teeth; the Devil Survivor manga; the Judge series; Wait Till Helen Comes; Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse; The Knife of Never Letting Go; the short story collection Dark Water; Annihilation; Uzumaki; and different stories by Edgar Allan Poe.
