Freebie Friday 22: Halloween Edition
Welcome to Freebie Friday: Halloween Edition!
I love Halloween. The chance to pretend you're someone else for a night is so much fun.
Then there's the candy! I buy mine at the very last minute so I don't eat all of it. And my kids know that I sneak into their rooms when they're asleep and steal the Almond Joys out of their little plastic pumpkins. In my defense, they don't even like coconut!
I also love scary books and movies. Well, those that aren't TOO scary. My preference is for ghosts and witches.
My perfect Halloween movie marathon:
Halloween (1978) Yes, this is technically a horror movie. But because it's so old-school, I can handle it.
Ghost Busters (1984) A little comic interlude. This one is such a classic! Symmetrical book stacking! Ghosts with OCD -- that's the kind of ghost I'll be.
Silence of the Lambs (1991) This is also borderline too scary for me, but it's such a great movie. Usually, when a movie is made from a book, I think the book is better, but in this case I think the movie might be! Clariiiiiice! I get chills just thinking about it!
So, for a chance to win your choice of one these scary books AND a zombie finger puppet:
Dearly Departed by Lia Habel (zombies!)
This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (even more zombies!)
Haunting Violet by Alexandra Harvey (ghosts and seances!)
Velveteen by Daniel Marks (a vengeful goth ghost girl!)
Break My Heart 1000 Times by Daniel Waters (ghosts and a serial killer!)
Open internationally. Accepting entries until Sunday at 8 am EST.
