31 (or 13) Days of Halloween

I have decided that to get myself in the mood for Halloween, I am going to try to read as many spooky, gorey, Halloween-ish books as I can before October 31st. My ultimate goal is 31, but since I have several large papers, a short story, and a handful of tests this October, I am going to give myself a little leniency. I will read at least 13 chilling reads for the month of October.

My list of possible book choices
1. Playing with Fire
