Costumes, cobwebs and candy--there are plenty of ways to get into the Halloween spirit. I, however, prefer spooky books! Below are some recommendations to chill your spine.

Spooky Halloween Book Recommendations

Anne Rice's vampire Lestat is back, with new release "Prince Lestat." And of course no list of mine would be complete without a mention of zombies (I've even managed to work them into Valentine's Day, so much is my love for these undead monsters), so I recommend picking up "The Walking Dead" graphic novels. And last but not least, Dean Koontz is always good for a check-under-the-bed-before-turning-out-the-lights thriller; Phantoms is one of my faves.

"Peter Rabbit and the Pumpkin Patch"

"Only a Witch Can Fly"

And in a category all their own, we have spooky parodies from author Michael Teitelbaum and illustrator Jon Apple:
