Scary Stories to Read After Dark

Horror stories to add to your Halloween reads

I've never been a big horror fan. Horror movies? No thanks. Haunted houses? Yeah right. Ghost tours of abandonded anythings. That's cute. Japanese Horror Movies? 100 percent never no way.  Scary stories? Yes, OK, sounds great, sign me up.  There's something about settling in on your couch or snuggling deep in your bed and then absolutely destroying the oasis of comfort you've created by reading a truly scary story.

Halloween is almost here, which means we have a great excuse to read spooky books! One Halloween-themed picture book I like is If You're a Monster and You Know It by Ed and Rebecca Emberley, a monster-themed version of "If you're happy and you know it" song.

Your Friday Five: Hispanic Heritage Month

Check out these adult titles

With Hispanic Heritage Month in mind, I share my adult version of a Friday Five! These Latino authors tell vastly different stories about Latino families. Protagonists are born to immigrant parents yet share varying anecdotes about the "Latino Experience."  Enjoy, and let us know what you think.
