YA Indie Carnival ~ Best Indie Reads for Halloween

Friday, October 28, 2011

My "to read" pile of YA books by indie authors is growing. Listed below are some of the scary-ish ones...fitting for Halloween...

Some of these are sitting on my Kindle, and some I haven't purchased yet. So I can't tell you if I like them or not...yet, but I'm very eager to read them for many different reasons. Here's why in no particular order:

Coming out on Halloween is The Reckoning by M. Leighton. I love the beautiful but spooky cover, and check out the excerpt on her blog. Actually, in terms of Halloween reading, M. Leighton has you covered with books like Wiccan, and Blood Like Poison, and many others...

Existence by Abbi Glines ~ This is probably one of the most striking and intriguing covers I've ever seen. Check out the excerpt on Abbi's blog. Along with the cover, I was totally sucked in after reading that...The big bummer...this one doesn't come out until December, so you'll need to add it to your wish list like I did.

Or how about 13 on Halloween by Laura Elliot? ~ another cool cover here, and if you have an e-reader you can read this one on Halloween for less than 3 bucks!

Don't forget that I have a ghost for you to read while you wait  for the release of Forever! My ghost isn't particularly terrifying, because she is just too darn innocent, but Fair Maiden is a murder mystery with a heavy dose of fantasy and romance to make it sweeter. If you don't like horror, this is the Halloween read for you...

Get if from Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, or The book Depository.

Or, if you're looking for something different, perhaps you should try Of Sun & Moon by Bryna Butler ~ Gorgeous cover, kidnappings, blood-sucking tyrants, and a paranormal tooth fairy? Must read! LOL

These are only a few...if you're looking from some good YA reading, I suggest trying any of my other carnies. Just click on one of the links below to visit their blogs.
