This Friday's Question:
Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?
Alright, if you read my blog, you know that I love horror. All types of horror, its probably my favorite genre ever and I read a lot of it. So, its safe to say that I have an immense pile of books that I could shove in your hands of books that you should read in the month of October and around Halloween.
- Stephen King. So many of his works are perfect for this time of year. A few that really come to mind are 'Salem's Lot and Pet Semetary, which are two of my favorites and both are equally super creepy.
- Of course, there are the classics that everyone associates with Halloween. Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I just read the latter for the first time in honor of Halloween. :]
- Richard Matheson. I am Legend and Hell House. Though I've never read either of these, these are books that I want to read and make me think of Halloween.
- Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I've seen that all over the blogosphere this month and I want to read it, though I haven't had to chance yet :[
- I read The Sleepwalkers by J. Gabriel Gates not that long ago and completely loved it. It was like reading a horror movie through subtitles. You can read my review here, it creeped me out and is fantastic to read for Halloween!
- Dead of Winter by Brian Moreland. This one I also read recently and really loved it. Combines the supernatural, demon passession and quite a bit of gore. I dreamed about the creatures from the book for several nights. You can read my review here, but I highly recommend it!
What about you? What are your favorite Spooktacular reads?
