The Scare Your Pants Off Giveaway

As I write this, a near empty gallon of apple cider sits in my fridge. The leaves outside are yellow, orange, red and brown and I gaze at them from inside, full of butternut squash soup. My sweaters sit in my closet as the days of their escape grow near. It's definitely fall. Yet the other week as I set up the Halloween display in the children's section of my local library, I realized that even though it's not until October 31st, Halloween isn't all that far away. While you bet that I love the picturesque aspects of this season such as apple cider, bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins, it's just not Halloween unless there's at least a bit of horror involved. Readers, I want to help you experience this feeling of fright, that of hiding under your bed while your loved ones try to coax you out with all manner of devices as your cat or dog stretches out atop your bed (at least, that's what my dog, Macey, would do). So I've spent the past couple of months acquiring fantastic, Halloween appropriate books that I've read or that are in my TBR pile.

Since Zombies vs. Unicorns edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier was just released, I thought this would be a great opportunity to help you all engage in the battle, educate yourselves and pick your side (I am currently Team Unicorn, but as I have yet to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, this could change). Of course, I also included a few books that aren't related to these particular topics. With this being said, you have the chance to win one of three prize packs. Here's the breakdown.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
