Halloween Reading List

My colleagues at the literary blog WarrenAdler.com and myself came up with a reading book list to celebrate the season of scares, Halloween. Horror and supernatural thrillers are not my thing but it was fun to create a list that are mostly composed of classic literature. Definitely, I'm adding Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on my "To-Read" list.
