January’s theme is Scare up a Good Book

All over Australia this summer, children will be up late with flashlights reading scary books during the Summer Reading Club.  But why should children be the only ones who can’t sleep?

This month we will be reading scary titles: both true (scary tales of disaster, or of people’s lives) and stories of fiction (including horror).

You can join us and tweet about what you are reading in January using the twitter hashtag #suagb.  You can also use this tag on other social media sites such as flickr or when you post about your reading on your blog.

You might also want to add tags for each month’s reading to TroveLibrary Thing and your library catalogue (if that is possible).

Some suggestions for scary summer reading:


It by Stephen King
Passage by Connie Willis
The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
Dracula by Bram Stoker
The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
2666 by Roberto Bolano
