Hey, everyone! I’m not sure if this giveaway will work because I don’t have as many followers as people do when they typically start doing giveaways, but I wanted to do something in celebration of Halloween. So, if it does work out, awesome. If it doesn’t, I don’t have to spend any money and that’s cool too. :)
But, just in case…..
Rules:
1. You don’t have to follow me (unless you want to, of course) as this is a Halloween celebration and that’s not limited to my followers. 
2. No giveaway blogs.
3. Likes and reblogs both count but be careful not to spam your followers.
4. Open Internationally through Book Depository (If they don’t ship to your country, I will try to figure something out but I apologize if arrangements can’t be made so be prepared).
5. There will be two winners (chosen randomly) and they get to choose one book from the ones listed (may not necessarily be the editions listed).
6. You must be comfortable giving me your address (I won’t do anything else with it, I promise) and you’ll have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen so make sure your ask box is open!
6. Giveaway ends October 31
The Books:
These aren’t all horror novels or scary books, but they all have spooky or ghost-ish elements to them. I’ve read some of these books but not all of them, so I can’t personally vouch for every single one. Click on the links to check out the goodreads page.

Those who say the Black Widow’s fighting style is just movie bullshit can see the above. ^ Shit is terrifyingly real. 

I think I’m in love.

She’s so tiny.
But she could kill me.
Great.

^ That

I will reblog this flying head scissors every time it comes on my dash because it’s so fucking awesome.

Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.
10. Do not ramble.
11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.
12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.
13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.
14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.
15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.
16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.

Oh, fuck it. Here’s forty seconds of Ben Whishaw reciting Keats, in his audition tape for Bright Star. I love how he gets across the impression of a poet composing; his eyes flicker back and forth as if he’s reading the poetry off the inside of his own head.

"This group of men used their collective power of colloquial language to create poetry that emphasized intuition and the pastoral. Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, and Keats banded together to form the Romantics: the Avengers of classic literature."  

William Blake
Super Power: Prophetic Prose
Motto: “It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.” 

William Wordsworth
Super Power: Self-Reflection
Motto: “The mind of man is a thousand times more beautiful than the earth on which he dwells.” 

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Super Power: Suspension of Disbelief
Motto: “Good and bad men are each less so than they seem.” 

Lord Byron
Super Power: Aristocracy
Motto: “The great object of life is sensation – to feel that we exist, even though in pain.” 

Percy Shelley
Super Power: Radicalism
Motto: “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?” 

John Keats
Super Power: Sensuality
Motto: “I want a brighter word than bright.”

Credit to Maria Vincente for her brilliance
