Halloween (with two 'l's)

Fun fact: I keep trying to spell Halloween with one 'l.' And 'habit' with two 'b's. And 'always' with two 'l's.

When I'm writing away from my computer, I use my phone as spell check. I'll type the word into a text message and see in my phone corrects the spelling or not. When I don't have my phone, like during chemistry lab, I try to scribble my letters enough that the word is mostly still legible, but you can't really tell how I spelled it. So if it's spelled wrong, no one will know.

Anyway, most of my professors have handwriting that is barely legible, so I figure I'm good.

Alright, enough chit-chat. Let's just get to it, shall we?

My Favorite Halloween Reads!
Roald Dahl
Specifically, The Best of Roald Dahl
Sure, you know him for Matilda and The Twitches, but he didn't just write children's books, you know. I absolutely love Roald Dahl's short stories. They're creepy and disturbing and just so fantastic. If you love Roald Dahl or short stories or creepy-ness, check them out. You'll thank me.
Before I Fall
Lauren Oliver
 So perhaps this isn't a Halloween read, per se. But it could be, if you let it. It's about a girl who dies in a car accident, and then relives that one day seven times.
And because we're talking about spelling, I'll admit that I first typed her name "Lauren Olive." I almost didn't catch it.
 Wildwood Dancing
Juliet Marillier
Okay, again, maybe not a Halloween read intrinsically. But it has magical creatures! And dancing in the forest! And frogs that talk! And it's set in Transylvania!
See? It totally sounds like a Halloween read now.

{: Happy Halloween! :}
