6 books to give you a fright this Halloween:

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been in the Halloween spirit since October 1st and preparing myself with lots of sweets and attempting to find a good Halloween costume.

But whether you’re working and treating yourself to the discounted Halloween sweets, out trick or treating, or spending a quite night in, here are 6 books to give you a fright this Halloween

Sleeping Beauties, Stephen and Owen King:

Would this list really be complete without a bit of Stephen King? I read this a while ago now and I still think about it.

Some of the scenes are absolutely horrifying, in true King fashion. I really loved the story with this one, and besides cringing all the time, fully immersed myself into the world where women disappeared…

If awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed, the women become feral and spectacularly violent…

Awakened, James S. Murray and Darren Wearmouth:

I reviewed this one a while back and still won’t stop raving about it – sorry, not sorry. This one definitely makes the frights on Halloween list, because it still haunts me.

It will fill all your horror/ sci-fi/ thriller needs and the suspense is just unreal. You’ll want to read with all the lights on, trust me.

There’s something living beneath New York City, and it’s not happy we’ve woken it up

Dracul, J.D. Barker:

Now, I haven’t read this yet, but this is the book I’m going to be reading leading up to the big day.

It’s a prequel to Dracula and based on the notes left behind by its creator. Now, I’m a big big fan of Dracula, and this book looks like it won’t disappoint. It also looks like quite a long book, so you can guarantee I’ll be sitting down with a glass of wine on the night before Halloween and immersing myself in this Gothic Fiction.

For all those who knows monsters are real

The Moor, Sam Haysom:

Still one of my favourite books in the horror genre, The Moor is so gripping; it has the don’t-stick-your-leg-out-of-the-covers-in-case-of-a-demon-creepy-vibe.

This book had to make the Halloween cut, just make sure you’re fully locked away, so you don’t have anything to make you tenser. It’s not needed – promise.

It begins with a ghost story around a campfire

What Was Lost, Jean Levy:

I am attached to this book in so many ways. It’s quite a long book, but perfect if you’re just spending the whole night in but want to be confused and full of emotions when you finish it.

This book is so precious that you might find it difficult to put it down and answer the door to trick and treaters. Entirely unpredictable and a psychological thriller at its finest.

But perhaps some things are best left forgotten…

The House, Simon Lelic:

Ready to lose sleep? Whether that’s from staying up all night to read it, or just getting creeped the f* out, this book is exactly what a psychological thriller should be.

Scary, thrilling and fast-paced. What more could you want on Halloween?

The perfect couple. The perfect house. The perfect crime
