Thank you to everyone who entered the All Hallows Read Giveaway! I picked the winners over the weekend through the super scientific method of putting all of the entries in a hat and making my mother draw two. So congratulations to Katie S. and Rachel T.! Your books are in the mail.

As for everyone’s favorite scary books, I saw a wide range, from perennial favorites to books I didn’t know existed. Of these, the most popular by far were House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski (6), Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury (5), Coraline by Neil Gaiman (4), It by Stephen King (4), and John Dies At the End by David Wong (3). Several of you also mentioned the graphic novel series, The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman. There were also multiple favorites of books by Max Brooks (5), Caitlin R. Kiernan (3), Anne Rice (3), Joe Hill (2), Thomas Harris (2), and Joe R. Lansdale (2). Across the board, I have to say you guys have pretty awesome taste in scary stories.

Thanks again for participating — I’m thinking we’ll make this a blog staple, so tune in next year. I hope all of you will consider participating in All Hallows Read and have a very happy Halloween!

So, now that the giveaway has ended, what are your favorite scary books?
