TGIF 10.28.11

TGIF is a feature brought to you by greadsbooks we answer a question and sum up our week on the blog.

Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?

OK so.. One book does come to mind as a great Halloween read but it wasn't bone chilling lol.
I really did enjoy this book it was full of lyrical quotes and spells witches and mystery.
Halloween really would be the perfect time to read it! and I think many who have read it will agree with me :)

Description from Amazon

The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.

And there are no strangers in the town of Near.

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.

But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.
