Spooky Challenge Day 2

Spooky Challenge

I'm such a Halloween fan so this looks like a fun way to lead up to it I just have to join in. 

I like the idea of scary books but when it comes down to them I tend to pass them by. 

Day 2 is 

I wasn't going to do this one because I couldn't think of a really awesome scary author that is one of my favorites only because I don't read a lot of horror. However I had a moment while looking at my collection of books and decided this author would be perfect. 

Christopher Pike

As a young teen he was one of my favorite authors I loved the scary spooky stories that he creates. I think I have them all. I have such fond memories of reading his books and I'm debating re-reading them for October. 

I don't know which book was my first of his. So I'll just pick a few of my favorites to share. 

The Last Vampire Series was one of my favorites. I remember my parents running me to Barnes and Noble the day the new one came out to pick it up. 

I was kind of excited that he started to write them again and I've read the first new of the new Thirst books but even though I own them I haven't continued. I'm kind of on the fence because I love the first 6. I'm feeling like I need to read them now that I've been thinking about them. I might have to start the first one today. 
The Weekend was another one of my faves and I've read it a few times over the years not recently though. It's on my list for October. Thankfully I never had a scary weekend with my friends when I was in high school. 
Last Act is one I still have in paperback form sitting on my bookshelf. It's worn from being read so many times over the years. This very well could be my first Pike book. I really liked the concept for this one the whole idea was intriguing. 
 I read Witch World when it came out. It's different not classic Pike but I did enjoy it. I haven't read the rest of the series yet but I do have them on my to do list. 

Do you have a favorite spooky author?
