Book Blogger Hop

Happy Friday! It's time for the Book Blogger hop, hosted by Crazy For Books. It's a weekly get together of book bloggers to get to know each other, discuss new books, and meet new people.

This week's question is: What is your favourite spooky book?

Answer: Thinking about it, I don't really read spooky books these days. I honestly can't think of one I have read recently, not even a mystery. However, back in the day I used to love reading Christopher Pike books and some of those were pretty spooky given the age I was when reading them. Here are a few of my favourites:

The covers bring back such memories! I'm going to have to head over to my mom's house and see if I still have my copies.

What are your favourite spooky books?


  1. Oh man, I loved Christopher Pike's books as an older kid/teen! There was a long stretch when I only read his books and Fear Street books, haha.

  2. Ugh, I can't believe I didn't list any Christopher Pike books since The Midnight Club inspired by blog name and book club name. Although I do have to go with Final Friends, Chain Letter, Slumber Party and Weekend as my all time favorite Pike books. I own most of his books (even the one Cheerleaders series book he wrote, despite the fact that it doesn't have anything to do with scary stuff, well, except cheerleaders). Thanks for reminding me how much I love him!

    Happy hopping from a new follower!

  3. I just don'r read spooky books, but one i just finished sent chills in my body, so i'll use that one.

  4. Ooooo the Christopher Pike books used to freak me out! I was also big on the Fear Street series as a teen. How much I've changed, lol.

    Happy Blog Hop! :-)

  5. I loved Christopher Pike back in the day too. The Midnight Club was one of my favourites also. I liked the vampire and remember me series he did too. Great books. I wish I still had mine.

  6. Oh, wow, those covers bring back memories! Mostly of me being too scared to read them in elementary/middle school. :D I've always been such a wuss about scary books!

    Happy Friday! My Hop's over here if you'd like to stop by!

  7. Oh wow... Loved Christopher Pike's books!! great post!! here's my Friday hop:

  8. Yep, kids still check these and RL Stine out at the library ;) How are you liking the Ellen book?

  9. Never read these, happy Friday!

  10. I used to love, love, love Christopher Pike. He was my favorite author in junior high. His books used to keep me up all night.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  11. I'm so happy to see so many other Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine readers! It's also nice to see that kids are still reading them!

    Joy - I'm enjoying the Ellen book, it's a nice easy read and it's just like she is on her talk show!

    Thank you for hopping by everyone.

  12. I remember Christopher Pike books. Quite creepy when read as a youngster.

  13. I don't know if I read Christopher Pike when I was younger (what with all the Sweet Valley High books I had to read) ... but I did try reading The Last Vampire last year and absolutely hated it! Might have to give something else a try.
