1. Authors share their own personal spooky stories on Twitter
Marie Lu, author of the Legend series, shared a spooky story a couple of days ago on Twitter and inspired many others to do the same. If you like real life stories involving creepy apartments, freaked out animals and Korean evil-eye curses, I suggest that you have a look.

Be careful, this song will be stuck in your head after a single listen!
