Some more recommendations from us at Of Wonderland: http://ofwonderland.com/2017/10/01/wo...


WhatIReallyRead For a very Halloween-y atmosphere I recommend:
- Labyrinth Lost (look at that cover OMG!!!)
- Frankenstein (a classic for the theme)
- Roses and Rot (this is a dark fairytale - nothing gory or too scary)

Angela | 40 comments I'm a big fan of horror, having discovered Stephen King at a young age. Here's a few I've really enjoyed:
Outpost - zombies, but original
14 - haunted house style book with a twist.
Anna Dressed in Blood
The Deep - supernatural. Also The Troop by the same author.
Let the Right One In
The Haunting of Hill House - it's a classic.
Dark Matter
The Pilo Family Circus
The Historian - a bit more dense than the other books but well worth it if you're a vampire fan
Dracula

I second Frankenstein and The Haunting of Hill House: both are good Halloween-y classics. I'm also not a big fan of horror, but the following books had a good creepy atmosphere and/tell a dark story perfect for October:

1. We Have Always Lived in the Castle (from the same author as "The Haunting of Hill House")
2. The Butcher's Hook
3. The Call
4. A Monster Calls (warning: this book may break your heart!)
5. Horns
6. The Ocean at the End of the Lane & Anansi Boys
7. The Kind Worth Killing (a nail-biting thriller)

Are you enjoying it? We did it in book club last year and we were all surprised by how much we enjoyed it.

Not much, to be honest. I am only around 100 pages in though. I hope it gets better
