Often times with school starting again bookworms either find themselves without any time to indulge in a good novel or they can never find a great book.

Halloween is soon approaching and many find themselves ready for a book that will scare them silly. The books that will do just that are The OutsiderandOwen King by Stephen King and A Stranger in the Houseby Shari Lapena. These are guaranteed to knock readers socks off, but the book that will truly entice readers with every page is House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.
