Halloween Books and Giveaway

**This is a featured giveaway post. Please scroll down to see additional reviews.

I still can't believe it's October and that Halloween is next weekend. Sadly I won't have time to celebrate Halloween this year (I'll be running a marathon), but that doesn't mean I can't write about Halloween. I was going to write a post about my favorite all-time Halloween books but when I started trying to come up with that list, I realized it was too short for a full post. So instead, here is a list of Halloweenish books from Amazon that I would LOVE to read and haven't.
  1. The Shining or Carrie by Stephen King
  2. Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice
  3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  4. The Phantom of the Opera by Gastron Leroux
  5. Dracula by Bram Stoker
Know what else I would love to do but haven't had a chance? Decorate my apartment for Halloween. I would love to be one of those people who has decorations for every holiday. Instead, I'm the person whose apartment looks the same year-round because I don't have any decorations.

If you're like me and love Halloween but never have time to enjoy it like you should, you're in luck. Willow Creek Sparrow is giving away this set of gorgeous metal pumpkins to one lucky winner just in time for Halloween weekend.

Wining these is as simple as leaving a comment on this post. I love these because not only can they be used as a Halloween decoration but also as a letter/placecard holder if you want to keep them up all year round. And I need all the help I can get. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me if you've read any of the books above and if so, which one is your favorite.

 And if you can't wait to see if you've won, check out all of WillowCreekSparrows' other products. Winner will be chosen at random using random.org. Giveaway is open to US residents only and closes at midnight EST on Friday, October 21st.

**This giveaway is now closed and the winner is Emily Taylor.

  1. I had to read Frankenstein in college and I actually really enjoyed it. I remember being surprised at how good I thought it was and I can't wait to reread it again one day.

  2. I haven't read any of those books but would be interested in doing so. They can be added to my long list of classics that I need to read.

  3. I've seen many versions of Phantom of the Opera, but I'm realizing I need to change up my reading list.

    I love these, they have a Tim Burton feel to them.
