Halloween Party | Agatha Christie
post image

I totally forgot to post this last night! Its always been one of my favourite Dame Agatha stories, I also love the David Suchet adaptation that has Zoe Wanamaker as Mrs Oliver. At a Halloween party, a young girl boasts of witnessing a murder. Nobody believes her, until she‘s found drowned in the apple bobbing bucket. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter #ScaryScavengerHunt #AboutHalloween #WithAPumpkinOnTheCover 23points #PointsTotal-1,543

I needed some romance in my Halloween reading. My enjoyment of each story was kind of all over the place but, as always, Sarah Eden‘s story was my favorite! 🖤

I'm not usually one for graphic novels but I love Koontz and I love Odd!

This one's set on and about Halloween so I'm ticking that box off on the #scaryscavengerhunt

My favorite image from this issue. The setting is a Halloween dance at the high school. I somewhat relate to Buffy. Halloween isn‘t my favorite holiday. I don‘t particularly enjoy trying to put together a fabulous costume. But I enjoy the spirit and darkness of the holiday.

Absolute fun!
We join the Ocker family as they spend a month in Salem, Massachusetts. Touring historical sites, museums and cemeteries and many of the sites associated with the Salem Witch Trials. There is a chapter about the Maritime museum and Nathaniel Hawthorne's tribute.

Lizpixie @TheReadingMermaid I‘ve always been bummed that Halloween isn‘t bigger in Australia, and that it‘s not in autumn! Hard to feel that Fall feeling when flowers are popping up everywhere & you‘re already reaching for the aircon🌻🌞🙅🏻‍♀️ 2mo
Lizpixie @4thhouseontheleft it sounds great, I‘m lucky it came in my #owlcrate seeing as I‘m on a strict #bookbuyban🤦🏻‍♀️ 2mo

There‘s also Stuart McBride, Thomas Harris, Chris Carter, Ruth Rendell, Gillian Flynn & Rachel Caine. Early Patricia Cornwall too. 3mo
Lizpixie For the #scavengerhunt prompt #boneinthetitle most of Kathy Reichs books have bone in the title, or the new release 3mo

Clwojick @Lizpixie and I‘m with you 💯 on Practical Magic! That‘s one I seriously need to reread! I‘ve had it on my self since late last year. 3mo
Lizpixie For #abouthalloween there‘s Halloween Party by Agatha Christie, The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury or the short story collection Dead Leaves:8 Tales From The Witching Season by Kealan Patrick Burke. 3mo
Bookwormjillk @Lizpixie I was going to suggest Agatha Christie too. I have Murder on the Orient Express on my TBR, and I‘m guessing #somebodydies in that one. 3mo
Lizpixie For #pumpkinonthecover there‘s Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell, the above Dead Leaves by Kealan Patrick Burke, Crypt Suzette by Maya Corrigan & Death By Pumpkin Spice by Alex Erickson. 3mo
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk I‘ve had Murder on the Orient Express on my shelf for WAY too long. Hopefully I‘ll finally get to it in October. 3mo
Lizpixie For #thatscaresyou some books that had me shaking(which isn‘t easy to do)are Bird Box by Josh Malerman, The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty( I recommend the audiobook read by the author), The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone, Salem‘s Lot, Christine, The Tommyknockers, It, The Shining & Pet Sematery by Stephen King, The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson & The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. 3mo
kezzlou85 @Lizpixie I think you've named just about ever suggestion I thought of. Well done. You've had so many brilliant ideas. 3mo
Sarahreadstoomuch For the book with a #vampire I‘m planning on Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell - it shouldn‘t be scary at all, but I‘ve been waiting on it! Her graphic novel Pumpkinheads is terrific too and fills a couple categories. 3mo
madamereadsalot1 I'm planning to read In the Valley of the Sun for a black cover/ with a vampire/ over 200 pages/ where a character dies categories. 3mo
4thhouseontheleft One of my neighbor‘s was Megan Miranda, our kids used to be at school together, and she is so sweet! All the Missing Girls is fantastic, but her first books, Fracture and Vengeance, would also be a great fit for this challenge! 3mo
Kappadeemom So can one book be counted for several of the scavenger hunt items? 3mo
LokiDokey I enjoy books from Gillian Flynn and Kerri Maniscalco. I read a bunch of one off books... one of us is lying, then she was gone, girl on the train, the seven deaths of Evelyn hardcastle, and birdbox. 3mo
RainyDayReading Throwing in some more graphic novel recs for those that want them. For #Zombie there‘s Scooby Apocalypse, #vampire there‘s Day Men, for #Witch I highly recommend Spell on Wheels and for #someonedies there‘s Kill or Be Killed, Lady Killer or The Fade Out. Each of these (except for Spell on Wheels) are part of a series as well. I‘ll do some digging and drop back by with some book suggestions after I peruse my bookcase a bit 😊 3mo
Liatrek @Clwojick I wanted to check can one book be used to get multiple points in the different challenges? Example my copy of Murder on the links is black cover 1 point scary scavenger hunt, team theme mystery 2 points = 3 points or a book can only be used to get points in one category? 2mo
Clwojick @Liatrek yes, the points can be stacked. 2mo
Liatrek @Clwojick Thank you! Working on my Scare a thon spreadsheet 😊 I‘m so excited! 2mo
intothehallofbooks @Clwojick yay!! Thanks, I‘m excited!! 2mo
