Atmospherics: Spooky or Warm Fuzzies…We have some Halloween Recommendations for you!


Okay, see I’m really not into things that do much more than go bump in the night. You will never see me browsing through titles that are in the horror section nor some of those really thrillerish thrillers. I screamed, flinched and made myself ill over Michael, Freddie and a possessed home in Amityville long ago and I’ve done my time trying to impress the other kiddies with all my bravado. So, while I would like to recommend some stories that would make your hair stand on end, I can’t.

Instead, I’ve cobbled together a pile of books that are more suited to the shallow end of the creepy pool for the easily freaked like myself. If I list it as a series, I’ve read one, some or all.

First off, I give you my list of Atmospherics. You know- the ones where you feel the story and it’s not the warm fuzzies let me tell you:

Something Wicked by Angela Campbell

Something Wicked by Angela Campbell
Psychic- para romantic suspense

Our Review

 Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp
Another psychic romantic suspense- and the ‘his eyes’ part is she sees what the killer sees.

Review Made of Stars by Kelley York

Made of Stars by Kelley York
YA romantic suspense that has a open-ended finish

Review Home the Hard Way by Z.A. Maxfield

Home the Hard Way by ZA Maxfield.
M/M romantic suspense that gets pretty hot and is also a tad open-ended.

Our Review

 Review Mirage Beyond Flames

Mirage Beyond Flames by Melinda De Ross.
Contemporary Romance with light para elements. The latter half of this one felt so enchanting like a haunted wood.

Our Review

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.


    1. Thank you! I spent the afternoon working on it for you! I tried to do it last week but got so busy and decided Halloween was going to catch up if I didn’t find time. Thanks for the recommendations.

      1. Yeah, this month is flying by at light speed. I’m not ready for Halloween yet. 😉

        You’re welcome on the recommends. I’m not a big scary books reader person, but I try. Haha!

    1. No kidding! My list of want to reads is huginormous. I always feel a bit behind the eight ball when people make book lists for memes at their sites and I sit there and go nope, not yet, not this one but something else, never heard of it, and oh, I actually read one.

        1. With the ‘never heard of its’, I think that’s why I love visiting so many blogs and social media places b/c people introduce me to authors and books all the time that I wouldn’t have found on my own. I’ve got dozens on the pile just from reading your reviews and several more really good reading experiences that I’ve finished too. 😉

                1. Congrats for surviving the moving experience, Ro! I can’t even imagine if I had to do that. I can imagine you found all sort of things that you forgot about including books. At least, that has been my experience with moving. Hope you get time soon to explore some of those TBR pile books now that you’ve re-discovered them.
