It's almost the most wonderful time of the year! Let's read something great and scary! There is no theme for this month.
**Remember, books that get seconds and thirds have a greater chance of making the poll. Please do not nominate books that have been read in the past year. Check here for a list of previous reads: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Authors, please do not nominate your own books.

How about some ghost stories: A Gathering of Ghosts by David Haynes


message 10: by Negan88 (new)

Negan88 | 21 comments Here are a few that I think would be good choices. Some are not very huge authors, but I really want to read them. Being that it is Halloween season I chose books that were slashers. With the exception to one supernatural/ demonic horror.

The Demonic by Lee Mountford

Escape From Happydale: The Last Final Girl book 1 by Jack Quaid

Camp Slasher by Dan Padavona

The Butcher Of Camp Barlow by Derek Slaton

Or last which I’ve heard is somewhat like Scream:

The Last Final Girl by Stephen Graham Jones
