Songs For Your Halloween Party Playlist

The title says it all.

It’s that time of the year again. I’m sure many of you are invited to some sort of Halloween party and eagerly preparing your costume. But what about the people who are HOSTING the party? They have a lot to prepare, and one of those things is the MUSIC! Sometimes it is hard to choose which music to play at your party. Let’s just say that I am here to help. Here is a list of songs to play at your Halloween party (most of them are pretty old, so bear with me).

  1. “Abracadabra” by Steve Miller Band
  2. “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater revival
  3. “Boris the Spider” by the Who
  4. “Clap for the Wolfman” by Guess Who
  5. “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
  6. “I Want Candy” by The Strangeloves
  7. “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads
  8. “Scary Monsters” by David Bowie
  9. “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell (super cool!)
  10. “The Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett (one of my favourite Halloween songs)
  11. “This is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas
  12. “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (same goes for this one)
  13. “Witch Doctor” by David Seville (Love this one too!)
  14. “Witchy Woman” by the Eagles

And there you have it. I would love to know which songs you will be using at your Halloween party (let me know in the comment section below)! 🙂

Reading List (October 2013)

27 Oct

20131027_090823

I have been quite busy this month, but I have still managed to get some reading done! Here are the books I have read so far this month:

  1. Haunting Violet – Alyxandra Harvey
  2. The Lives We Lost – Megan Crewe
  3. Halloween Trivia – Tonya Lambert

Haunting Violet

20131027_090851

I found this book rather interesting. One thing that I didn’t like is the overuse of the word SWOON. I hate when words are repeated too many times in one chapter! Drives me crazy.

Summary:

Violet Willoughby doesn’t believe in ghosts. But they believe in her. After spending years participating in her mother’s elaborate ruse as a fraudulent medium, Violet is about as skeptical as they come in all matters supernatural. Now that she is being visited by a very persistent ghost, one who suffered a violent death, Violet can no longer ignore her unique ability. She must figure out what this ghost is trying to communicate, and quickly because the killer is still on the loose.

Afraid of ruining her chance to escape her mother’s scheming through an advantageous marriage, Violet must keep her ability secret. The only person who can help her is Colin, a friend she’s known since childhood, and whom she has grown to love. He understands the true Violet, but helping her on this path means they might never be together. Can Violet find a way to help this ghost without ruining her own chance at a future free of lies?

The Lives We Lost

As I mentioned in my last reading list, I was trying to get my hands on a copy of this book. Now I finally have it! I have not finished reading this one yet (I am near the end), but I love it!

Summary:

First, the virus took Kaelyn’s friends. Then, her family. Now it’s taken away her home.

But she can’t look back—the life she once had is gone forever.

A deadly virus has destroyed Kaelyn’s small island community and spread beyond the quarantine. No one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a vaccine in her father’s abandoned lab, she knows there must be someone, somewhere, who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the mainland, they encounter a world beyond recognition. It’s not only the “friendly flu” that’s a killer—there are people who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the vaccine. How much will Kaelyn risk for an unproven cure, when the search could either destroy those she loves or save the human race?

Halloween Trivia 

20131027_091001

I absolutely adore this book! It is the cutest thing ever! I contains folklore, jokes, customs passed down through out the ages, and much more! It was definitely worth buying.

Discription:

Halloween is one of the most celebrated times of the year among North Americans. Find out in this fun-filled, fascinating collection of little-known facts about all of the odd customs of Halloween and where they originated.

(All summaries from Goodreeds )

That’s all for now! Feel free to leave some suggestions on what books I should read. Who knows, maybe it will be in next month’s reading list (plus credits to you for the suggestion). 🙂

I will post the links where I got these designs from under each picture. However, I hope to make my own nail art tutorials in the future. Let me know what you think in the comment section below and if you aren’t already, make sure to follow my blog! 🙂
