Happy October! Since we are officially in the appropriate month for creepy things, things that are pumpkin spiced and ghouls I thought I would pick a few spooky books from this year to usher in the season. As you can tell I focused on red, black, blood, devils and murder.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN (29 days early!)

Oblivion by Sasha Dawn

"In a world where the murder rate is higher than the birth rate, fifteen-year-old Meadow, trained by her father to kill and survive in any situation, falls in love with Zephyr, a government assassin."
