#CallingAllMonsters #OctoberXFiles
The creature hospital scene from Satanic Verses came to mind for this, along with the fact that the manticore is rallying the patients to rise up and not stand for being defined by others.
I had much spooky fun this month @Robothugs and @Cinfhen - very well done!
Happy Halloween all 🎃💀👹👻

A childhood favorite that I remember reading at our cottage in the summer. Both my kids enjoy this one, and my 6 yo really gets the humor. My favorite bit is the embarrassed Grover at the end. 😈🎃👹#callingallthemonsters #octoberxfiles

Crazeedi My child relived this book! Oooo there's a monster at the end of this book, I always read it in Grovers voice, 😉 13mo
Robothugs I LOVE Grover!!! 13mo

We‘re going to call my reading theme for October #callingallthemonsters. With the exception of a few books at the beginning of the month, I stuck to horror/suspense/creepy for the month.

12 physical books
3 ebooks
3 audiobooks

Caroline2 Awesome!!! 😀 13mo
Oryx How cool. I never saw this film, but weirdly I had the video game (I think on Amiga 500) and it was terrifying! 13mo
Robothugs Good pick!! 13mo
eanderson So cool!!! 13mo
SkeletonKey 😮😮😮 I want this book so badly. 13mo
TrishB @Soubhiville it‘s great and creepy! 13mo
TrishB @Oryx that‘s probably worth some money now from collector type people! 13mo
TrishB @SkeletonKey I‘ve just seen how much a new copy goes for 😱 13mo
Oryx @TrishB it's long gone unfortunately. I ended up watching a run through of it on YouTube last night. Ah sweet horrifying memories. 13mo
TrishB @Oryx film is one of a kind! 13mo
SkeletonKey @TrishB - I know, every time I look it up I cry, hah! 😭 13mo

This #thriller might not be among the "classic" Halloween-y #spookybooks, but boy did this book spook me. I've read most of the other books in the Jack Caffery series. They are good but none of them is as good as this first one. Probably because I didn't yet know what to expect of a book by Mo Hayder.

#31bookpics @howjessreads - Thank you for hosting this photochallenge.

#OctoberXFiles @Robothugs @Cinfhen - I couldn't not use this to catch up

ladym30 Great cover!💕 13mo

When it comes to #CallingAllTheMonsters, no one can do it as menacingly good as an ancient shapeshifting cosmic being.
Thanks @Cinfhen and @Robothugs for an awesome month! 🎃 🙌🏽 I only wish I'd participated more often, but I enjoyed viewing all the creative posts.

Robothugs Thanks for playing when you did! 🖤🤗 13mo

Definitely not a book for everyone - it was creepy and grotesque in parts - but fitting for #CallingAllTheMonsters . Lizzie Borden took an ax...or did she? Schmidt interprets what she thinks happened that fateful day in Fall River.

Thanks for a fun #OctoberXFiles @Cinfhen and @Robothugs !

Cinfhen Always happy to have you 💕💕hope to see u in November 🦃 13mo
Robothugs Thanks for playing along!! 13mo
