Halloween is my favorite holiday, and what better way to celebrate than with some spooky, creepy books?
If you want the synopsis of each of these books, just click on the title to see the Goodreads page.
Dracula–A classic. Can you even have a list like this without it?
The Yellow Wallpaper–Creepy. Psychological. Feminist. What more could you want?
Anything by Edgar Allan Poe–Again. Can you make a Halloween list without Poe?
The Diviners by Libba Bray–Ghosts. Psychics. A spooky museum. A mystery. A serial killer. All the Halloween essentials in one tidy package.
The Eterna Files by Leanna Renee Hieber–This is book one in her latest series. Gilded age leaders search for immortality, and end up killing a lot of people in the process. Our main characters have to deal with their ghosts, and the threat left behind.
Brimstone by Cherie Priest–I’ll have my full review up next week.
Ghostland— An American History in Haunted Places by Colin Dickey–Great balance of fact and myth, and the psychology and history behind some of America’s most famous ghosts.
Asylum by Madeleine Roux–This series is so creepy, I’ve only gotten through the first two books so far. It’s not something I can marathon.
The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston–She survived the witch hunts of the 1600s, only to have her most dangerous foe track her down in the modern age.
Let the Good Times Roll by Missouri Dalton–A haunted mansion in Louisiana holds all sort of dark secrets.
The Other Side of Midnight by Simone St. James–This is my other favorite author for ghost stories. You could pick up any of her books, but I think this one is the best for Halloween.
