It’s Halloween! I’m sure I’m not the only book lover who has books they like to read during a certain time of year. This is a list of books that I recommend to read around Halloween. They are all different genres. Some are “classics” and some are newer. None of them are necessarily Halloween-themed, but they have creepy aspects or creatures that are associated with the holiday.
As always, all titles are linked to their corresponding Goodreads pages.
The Passage by Justin Cronin
The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe (anything by Edgar Allan Poe, really)
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Pet Cemetery by Stephen King (there are several more I could’ve chosen)
Phantoms by Dean Koontz
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Haunted Book by Jeremy Dyson
John Dies at the End by David Wong (for a weird but not so creepy/scary read)
I haven’t read it yet, but I’m going to assume Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is a good fit for the list. This is one that I definitely want to check out.
Have you read any of these? Tell me what you’d add to the list!
