13 Halloween Reads!

Hellooooo! It is a week till Halloween so I am here today with 13 halloween reads. They may not be scary but they have a spooky vibe to them I'm not to give much away about these as it may ruin them and some of them I haven't read too :)

  • Dracula, Bram Stoker. Introducing Count Dracula!
  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving. The headless horseman.
  • The Women in Black, Susan Hill. An old creepy house all alone on the marshes, isolated by the tide.
  • The Women in White, Wilkie Collins. Ghost!
  • Edgar Allan Poe, many poems and short stories with dark undertones. The word atmospheric comes to mind with him.
  • Inferno, Dante. 14th Century journey into hell.
  • Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson.
  • Unrest, Michele Harrison. Haunted houses, mystery and bodies taken over by spirits. (this 1 creeped me out!)
  • Frankenstein, Mary Shelley. Its alive!
  • Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs. Time travel and monsters.
  • Hollow City, Ransom Riggs. More time travel and monsters. (sequel to the above)
  • The Miniaturist, Jessie Burton. Amsterdam, 1686. A dolls house that's seems linked to the  household in mysterious ways.
So why not give 1 or 2 of these a go? Let me know what you think if you do!
Speak soon,
