Fun
Scary Godmother: Omnibus - Jill Thompson

This a cute kids comic about a girl who learns not to be scared of monsters.  And then about the Halloweens after.  It is cute, and beautifully drawn.  Appropriate for young children.

Good collection
Witches, Ghosts & Loups-Garous: Scary Tales from Canada's Ottawa Valley - Joan Finnigan

This is a very nice collection of oral tales from the Ottawa Valley. The tales come from a variety of backgrounds - so there is Quebecoise but also Anglo, Irish, Scots. Finnigan does a god job at capturing the voice. Well done.

Sincerity
Sincerity and Other Scary Tales - David Blixt

Well, this was disappointing. 

It's not just disappointing by comparison with the previous book I read, which was fab, but I am entirely put off by the fact that this was called a short story collection.

 

This contained five stories, that is true, but one was the preface to a novel, two were only a couple of pages long, one was so obscure that the author himself felt the need to explain it, and most of them I could not see the point in.

Halloween Bingo - Halloween
Sincerity and Other Scary Tales - David Blixt

I currently have four called and read squares sitting in a row, and the Halloween square is the only one missing. So, in anticipation of that square being called (which would give me a bingo), I'll turn to David Blixt's collection of short stories.

 

I did consider re-reading Hallowe'en Party by Dame Agatha, but I have had Sincerity on my kindle for a few years now and really want to get rid of at least one book on my virtual TBR.

One person from 4 different families have a possessed music box thrust upon them by a dead witch that has been stalking their families for 200 years.  They have 7 days from receipt to lock them down.  They must meet and battle the witch for the keys on her home turf.

Definitely will be reading book 2.
