Spooky reads recommendation

Soooooooo I was going to do this in weekly posts but I’ll be honest. I don’t have the time. So I’m just going to make it in one post. So since it will be a bit long I won’t go into detail about each book. 

So we start with the classics:

  • Edgar Allan Poe 
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Really you can read just about any King book and get spooky but here are a few favorites

  • IT
  • Bag of Bones
  • Pet Sematary
  • Carrie
  • The Shining
  • ‘Salem’s Lot
  • Misery (which I’m currently reading)

I’ve just recently been introduced to Ray Bradburys other works (love Fahrenheit 451)

  • Dark Carnival (this is an extremely hard book to find and when you do it’s ridiculously expensive)
  • The Halloween Tree 
  • The October Country 
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes
  • The Illustrated Man

These are ones I’ve read recently

  • My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier (comes out in November in the USA)
  • Brother by Ania Ahlborn 
  • The Neighbors by Ania Ahlborn

Ania Ahlborn is like a female version of Stephen King! She knows how to creep! I just recently bought the rest of her books and another one comes out in November. 

Here are some that I’ve been told by others are a good spooky read

  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
  • The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
  • 172 hours on the Moon by Johan Hardstad
  • The Mercciless by Danielle Vega
  • Seed by Ania Ahlborn

These are ones I found off a Goodreads list (I will star the ones I’ve read from this batch)

  • House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski 
  • NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
  • Heart-Shapped Box by Joe Hill
  • The Wintet People by Jennifer McMahon
  • Interview With a Vampire by Anne Rice 🌟
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier
  • Doll Bones by Holly Black
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman 
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness 🌟
  • Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake 🌟

Well that’s all she wrote folks!!! Has anyone read any of these? What are your thoughts? Happy spooky reading!
