Top Ten Books To Read During Halloween

1. It by Stephen King - Seriously this one scared the pants off me! It's a brilliant book and I'm glad I read it but I'm not sure I'm brave enough for a second turn.

2. Outpost by Adam Baker (Review) - Another one that sent a chill down my spine and had me afraid to turn off the light at bedtime lest the zombies get me!

3. Dark inside by Jeyn Roberts (Review) - Another zombie book but it's YA so less gore for people with weaker stomachs.

4. The next thing I knew by John Corwin (Review) - If you prefer your horror funny then try this one instead, it's hilarious.

5. Undead and unwed by Maryjanice Davidson - This series is good if your not a horror fan at all but want to get into the spirit of things, it's a really funny Vampire series.
6. Wicked: Witch by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie - These days you'l find this book as a bind-up with the second book 'Curse' but I thought I'd just suggest the first one. It's a YA series about witches, can't get more halloween than witches.

7. Mister Creecher by Chris Priestly (Review) - This is a fabulous twist on what happened to Frankensteins monster.
Unfortunately I can't think of any more, I haven't read many horror books and I didn't want to just make a list of Vampire books (not that I couldn't lol)
I'm sure lots of lists will have Dracula and Interview with the Vampire but I haven't read them - yes I know, shame on me!

Which books would you suggest for Halloween reading?


  1. Ha! It was my second guess of books by Stephen King you might read. That is such a great book. But I only read it the once. It's creepy with that clown *shudders* but I also found it so very sad. And I said I'd never read it again in case my viewpoint changed.

    But it is totally creepy.Outpost looks so good, too! I haven't read many zombie books, but this one from the cover sounds terrifying!

    I haven't read this Nancy Holder Debbie Viguie book, but I know they have a book coming out next month, Unleashed, I think? I can't wait to read something by the two of them.

    But I still say vampires are much more Halloween-y than witches ;)

    Great list, even without 10 picks. And no, I didn't even pick Dracula for mine, with the whole vampire <3, but you should read the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles, at least Interview and Lestat.

    Thanks for stopping by. Happy Halloween reading to you!

  2. You have some great books there. I like the cover of The Next Thing I Knew, looks really creepy. I haven't read a lot of these books but I will be checking them out on goodreads. Thanks for posting =).

  3. He he! Dracula did make my list although I haven't read it yet either. It is one book I'll never read - I'm terrified of clowns to start with so I probably wouldn't make it past the first page!

    My top ten is here if you'd like a look :)
