Giving me the Creeps October!

So although you're probably just like me and can barely admit it's fall, we all have to face the facts, and the fact is October is just around the corner.  And yes that makes it sound like I'm rushing you along to winter (cringe) but lets be optimistic about it, October brings some great activities, over-eating and dressing up! 

Now I'm going to preface my announcement by telling you I'm an enormous chicken, like unbelievable, wake up screaming kind of scaredy cat.  Which is not to say I don't like scary things, just that I don't deal with them well.  I very distinctly remember rabidly reading about alien abductions and then driving in the dead of night with my grandparents and mom down some dirt road in the middle of the bald prairies (likely coming home from visiting some great aunt or uncle out on the farm) and practically wetting myself  from my terror that at any minute we were going to be abducted by aliens.  I was probably 8 or 9 and let me just say, not much has changed. 
I couldn't walk past the T.V in the dark for months after I saw The Ring.

This all being said I've decided to dedicate the majority of my October reading (hey! the The Lost Hero, and Behemoth come out in October and I can't make any promises involving holding off on reading either of them right away), to all things scary, creepy, zombies, bloodsucking or otherwise bad ass paranormal.  Currently on the roster of possibles:

The Strain (because it even gave the un-scarable hubby nightmares)
The Fall (because it'll be hot off the presses and part two to the Strain)
Something by Steven King the prince of all things dark and creepy (the hubby is having a terrible time picking which book since IT would take the whole month and make for kind of a lame blog)
The Monstrumologist (it was up for a Pintz, and the hubby loved it, I have to make sure I don't eat while reading though! Cause I hear it's just that gorey!)
The Replacement (it has a super creepy cover and hopefully equally creepy story)
Fallen ( because Torment has a creepy cover and sounds like it has potential but it's book two to Fallen)
Torment (see above)
Married with Zombies (because it's scary and funny sounding!)

What would you suggest to give me the willies? You're fav horror, zombie, blood sucking adventure?

And by all means join in the fun, all month add your creepy reviews of all things horror or horror related to my blog on the tab labelled Giving me the Creeps October!
