Books with Spooky Beings

Bonjour mes amis! Comment ça va?

So Halloween is just a couple of days away and I am so ready to get my spook on! To celebrate this grave occasion, Jessica over at Reading With Jessica came up with the Haunted Halloween Hop.

First Lines Fridays {5}

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Finally… reveal the book!

P.S. I’m taking this topic in a slightly different direction.
