Romance Girls Gone Goblin and GIVEAWAY

Muhahahahahahahaha! *crash of thunder and lightning* *bats flying everywhere*

Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you're all gearing up for a SPOOOOOOOKY Halloween weekend! To celebrate Halloween we're talking about our favorite scary, Halloween films and we're having a paranormal themed giveaway!

Now, when I was thinking about what to write for this Halloween post, I started to think about all the things I've done over the years in order to celebrate this fantastically creepy holiday.

On thing I'm sure we've all done at least once in our lives is trick-or-treating. But what about once we get older? When we're too old to trick-or-treat, but we don't yet have kids, how do we celebrate?

Along with going to Universal Studios' haunted houses, Halloween Horror Nights, one thing I love to do is watch Halloween or horror movies. It's a great way to get in that creepy, scary sort of mood while you're handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

So this year, to celebrate Halloween on the blog, I thought I would post an excerpt from my favorite Halloween movie (and well..quite frankly, my favorite movie ever). I hope you enjoy this little snippet and that it helps get you in the Halloween mood.

I hope you enjoyed the clip, of my favorite movie, A Nightmare Before Christmas! In honor of Romance Girls Gone Goblin, I'll be giving away a copy of YA paranormal romance, Iron King by Julie Kagawa and adult paranormal romance, The Fallen: Raziel by Kristina Douglas.

  7. Scary picture, Kaitlyn! Thanks for the giveaway. I grew up on a cul-de-sac and my favorite Halloween memory was all the families gathering around a long table at the end on trick or treat night. Kids got some fast candy by going down the table, taking candy from each bowl lined up, and neighbors got to catch up with each other. jenniferlanebooks at gmail dot com

  8. Well...I don't know that it's my favorite...but it sure left an impression. Alfred Hitchcock's, The Birds. Shiver! I can't see a large group of birds today without getting the creeps...'cause you know they can't be up to anything good!

    I only really have one halloween memory since I didn't come to the U.S. til my teenage years.
    My memory is when I'm already in college and I went with my theater cast and walked to a restaurant that turned out to be closed and then tried to go to KFC drive thru WITHOUT a car. they didn't serve us :( did i mention i walked in about 3" heels?

  22. Book Heroine--Aw! That's so sweet. My soon-to-be hubby is working tonight as well. He's a bartender though, so I haven't gone to see him 1) because I'm sick 2) because the bars are really busy on Halloween night lol. Thanks for following and thanks for entering! Happy Halloween!

    Arianne--Oh no! That doesn't sound like a good Halloween memory. Try and make some new ones this year! Some happy ones! Thanks for following and thanks for entering the giveaway! Happy Halloween!
