Nothing But Blackened Teeth, by Cassandra Khaw

Staff Pick

When a group of friends opts to spend the night in an abandoned Japanese manor, what starts out as an evening of fun quickly turns sinister. The rumored spirit bride that haunts the decaying house is real and she’s feeding off the emotional baggage that the young adults have brought along. Steeped in Japanese folklore, this is a haunted house story where the visitors might be more haunted than the house.

The Longest Race, by Kara Goucher

Staff Pick

Kara Goucher’s marathon best is only a few minutes slower than the half marathon I ran a few days ago, so it goes without saying that I am in awe of her.  But along with tales of making Olympic teams and taking world championships, Kara’s memoir details the rampant harassment and exploitation that ripples out from Nike’s inner circle to its best athletes. Running takes guts--and so does exposing corruption; if I didn’t think this athlete was great before, I certainly do now.

Yours Cruelly, Elvira, by Cassandra Peterson

Staff Pick

The Mistress of the Dark is not only a sexy horror icon, she’s a hilarious and talented writer, too!  I laughed out loud from beginning to end of this memoir, as Cassandra/Elvira charts the glitz, glamour, and celebrities that followed her from her early career dancing as a Vegas showgirl to her current big hair and runaway fame.  My only quibble with it all is that I can’t claim the title “Queen of Halloween” for myself.
