October 30: Halloween/Creepy Freebie

Here’s some books with a Halloween feel, if you need a spooky read!

  1. House with a Clock in its Walls; John Bellairs. Read it before you see the movie!

2. Written in Red; Anne Bishop. Blood prophets, and supernatural Others.

3. World War Z; Max Brooks. Interview after the fact, on the price of winning.

4. Once Burned; Jeanine Frost. For those that hot vampires gets you in the spirit.

5. Coraline; Neil Gaiman. Creepy, but not too creepy.

6. Midnight Crossroads; Charlaine Harris. Ghosts and vampires.

7. The Necromancer; Jonathan L Howard. A bit of fun with raising the dead.

8. We Have Always Lived in the Castle; Shirley Jackson. A quiet kind of scary.

9. Mystery of Grace; Charles de Lint. Day of the Dead, ghosts of the past.


10. Frankenstein; Mary Shelley. Thought-provoking and tragic.

    Great list. I read The House With A Clock in its Walls many many years ago. I’d like to give it a reread before checking out the movie. I love We Have Always Live In the Castle and Coraline. Here’s my list: https://franlaniado.wordpress.com/2018/10/30/top-ten-tuesday-halloween-creepy-freebie/
