Bloggers Dressed in Blood 3

Happy Halloween month!! Welcome to our Bloggers Dressed in Blood event. Kate, Steph, Danielle and I hope that you take time out to join us for all our festivities this month!

Lessons Learned.

In order to participate I’d like you to tell me the best lesson you’ve learned from a horror book or movie and which book or movie you learned it from.

For example: I learned that if there is an attacker in the house you should never run upstairs if you can run outside from Scream.

Leave me your answer in the comments below and I’ll pick a winner, via random number generator, on Sunday, October 7. Challenge ends at 11:59pm EST on October 6.

The winner will receive a ARC copy of The Farm by Emily McKay. This challenge is only open to US residents. Sorry! You must be 13 or older to enter. Please see my contest/giveaway policy for the rest of my rules and policies regarding contests and giveaways.
Emily McKay The Farm

Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…
And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…
Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race…

Don’t forget to stop by our Bloggers Dressed in Blood post to learn how you can enter to win our month long contest! Good luck!

    I’ve learned that it does not matter if you (as the victim) hold the world record for fastest run/sprint. The bad guy, who is probably a broken, reanimated zombie with a pair of seemingly useless legs, is ALWAYS faster and he’s gonna catch you – from every scary movie/book ever. : )

    Wow, Tanya… I really need to read my copy of 77 Shadow Street!

    I learned alcohol does not put out fire (a very important lesson to learn!) from Slumber Party by Christopher Pike.

    *Obviously I’m not entering the giveaway, but I still wanted to answer! ;)

    From Criminal Minds I have learned that I am NEVER going camping again! I learned from Psycho that it is perfectly valid to be afraid of the shower. And I have learned from pretty much any horror movie ever to hold on to my virginity for as long as possible!!!

    If you hear a weird noise in a dark basement, DON’T GO DOWN THERE! Classic case of “curiosity kills”….

    Your best chance at survival in most horror movie situations is to visit the library. Seriously, how much time does Buffy the Vampire Slayer spend in the library? How many times has the secret to unlocking a haunting been found in a musty book in the house’s well-stocked bookshelves? And by library I don’t mean just books. With the internet and wireless technology, IMDB and Wikipedia are just a few finger swipes away when you need that reference to an urban legend that will save your skin. Knowing is half the battle.
