Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish was such a fun read! Oh I really enjoyed this one. If you know me then you know I love celebrating holidays however I can. Any and every holiday. This year I was a bit sad as I was on vacation for Halloween, my favorite holiday, and so I missed out on my Halloween fun. I missed out on all my Halloween reads. Not that I won't read them the rest of the year, I just like having holiday specific reads as well. I missed out on the costumes and the decorations and the food and everything I usually do for the holiday. Luckily this book gave me a little bit of everything I was so sad to have missed. This book had everything I love about Halloween wrapped up in a pretty sweet story.
Nora used to be a bully in middle school. She was pretty horrible to a few people, one of which was Brendan. Brendan the huge horror movie buff with a popular website with a large following. Brendan who is coming to the haunted house where she works to see how it stacks up against the others in the area. Brendan who she hasn't seen since middle school.
Brendan remembers Nora and how horrible she was to him. He doesn't dwell on it, he has grown up, but he would remember her if he saw her. Nora knows this so she makes sure to be in costume when she first sees him. She needs to scare him to win a bonus, to have her haunted house make his list, but things don't go exactly as planned. Brendan grew up and is pretty hot now! She feels terrible for how she treated him in the past, but they start to get to know each other when she is in costume and they start falling for each other. But what will happen when Nora finally admits who she is?
This book was a lot of fun to read. I loved the descriptions of the haunted house. I loved how Nora tried to scare Brendan. I loved the costumes and their back and forth and the cheesy conversations and just everything about this story. It is a quick read, but I had a huge smile on my face the entire time. I'm so glad I read this story as it is just plain fun. I am going to have to see if there are more books by this author as this was just so good.
