Spooktacular Giveaway Hop: October 24th to 31st

Hi, everyone!

Welcome to Stop #130 of the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by Kathy at I'm A Reader, Not A Writer and co-hosted by Rhianna at The Diary of a Bookworm.

Over 400 blogs are offering a book related giveaway, and we are all linked up together so that you can easily hop from one giveaway to another! The hop runs from Monday, October 24th through Monday, October 31st.

Details of my giveaway:

There will be three winners, and each will win his/her choice from one of the books below (please note that the book cover of the copy that you receive from The Book Depository may differ from the one in the photo).

I have chosen some classic spooky stories, some horror novels that are sure to scare you, and some Young Adult Paranormals. Don't worry if you are not a horror fan, because I have rounded it out with some Halloween-themed cozy mysteries!! 

Below the photos is a list of the books with links to Goodreads so you can read more about each book.

If Darlene's Book Nook surpasses 750 followers on Google Friend Connect during the hop, I will celebrate my "750 Follower Giveaway" simultaneously and draw THREE ADDITIONAL WINNERS who will receive his/her choice of book from the selection posted below:
