In this edition of A Fortnight of Fright, we’re talking about all of our favorite Halloween reads! Read below, as I have listed some of my favs for Halloween and some I want to read but haven't gotten to.
1. Bram Stoker's Dracula - This is a spooky read and a classic for good reason. I loved reading this last year, and I think everyone should devote a Halloween to reading it. Lsat year I read it while waiting for trick-or-treaters. I was into the Halloween spirit!!!
2. The Shining - I have not read The Shining not because I don't think I should, but because I am scared to read it! I mean, seriously, I watched the movie and it creeped me out so much, that I haven't had the guts to pick up the book. Should I?
3. Anything James Patterson - This October, I am catching up on my James Patterson reading. Mr. Patterson is always writing about blood, gore, murder and creepy people. In my opinion, it's the most Halloween inspired non-paranormal human activity imaginable.
4. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield - This book is just engrossing. It's weird and eerie without being overtly scary. The supernatural elements are intriguing. It's about a writer who gets wrapped up in a dark, haunted ruin of a house, which guards family secrets that are not hers and that she must discover at her peril.
5. Salem's Lot by Stephen King - I haven't read this either, but I am told this is required horror reading. After reading some reviews, it seems that this is true, but I'm not sure. Would love some input!
Okay, so there's my list. I also have Frankenstein and The Tell Tale Heart on-deck. What do you read or want to read this Halloween? For more inspriation, click on the links above to see other lists!
