Happy Friday, everybody! It’s almost Halloween, so this Friday Fifteen is brought to you by the world of creepy books. (Spoiler alert: I get scared really easily.)
1. Howliday Inn by James Howe
A sequel to Bunnicula, Harold and Chester go to a kennel where animals go missing.
2. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King
Trisha ends up alone in the woods with something creepy. Reason #45 not to hike.
3. Coyote Moon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Book 3) John Vornholt
Say it with me, everyone: “Carnie were-coyotes.”
4. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
No, it’s not just a musical. Erik, the phantom, alternates between sympathetic and totally creeptastic.
5. Clifford’s Halloween by Norman Bridwell
Who’s that under the ghost costume? He’s house-sized, but I dunno if it’s Clifford.

Did you find Erik at all sympathetic, really? I thought he was a total jerk, and couldn’t see what Christine saw in him at all.
I did, since he had a horrible childhood because of his deformity and might have turned out differently because of it. But then he was also vengeful and a stalker and murderer. Sympathy only goes so far.
