Top 10 Books To Read During Halloween
Wow, Halloween’s coming around already! Hmm.. let’s see if I can remember 10 of the scarier books I’ve read… I think there’s going to be a lot of Stephen King on here…
- Cell by Stephen King –> It’s more gross, in parts, than “scary”… like gruesome thriller.. good read tho. Highly recommend.
- Any of the Ghost Hunter books by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson –> I absolutely love the show, and loved reading more about the real cases they’ve investigated.
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley –> A classic. We were supposed to read this in grade 12 and ran out of time in the semester… and me, being the bookish nerd that I am, took it home and read it anyway 😎
- Ghosts of New York City by Therese Lanigan-Schmidt –> I bought this as a “souvenir” from my trip to NYC last year.. Loved reading about the ghost stories from the places I had just visited!
- The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold –> Maybe not jump-out-at-you scary, but it’s definitely an eerie book… narrated by the dead girl…
- Storm of the Century by Stephen King –> Based on the TV movie (which I absolutely loved), it’s a really creepy tale… definitely check out the movie itself if you’re interested. Colm Feore is amazing in it!
- Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill –> The amazing debut novel by none other than Stephen King’s son!
- The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris –> For a lighter, funner “creepy” read, the vampires and other paranormal creatures in Bon Temps will be sure to tickle your fancy!
- Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King –> CREEPY disturbing collection of short stories.
- Blindness by Jose Saramego –> I personally couldn’t quite get into this book as much as I should have/could have… but I appreciated the fact that it’s a book that will mess with your head! It’s pretty intense…
