Happy Halloween to everyone! I thought for today I would recap the posts I’ve made for October Fright and the books I’ve reviewed.
Here I made a list of the creepy reads I wanted to get to this month and it seems I was really overreaching. I still plan to read the books I didn’t get to, so look for those reviews.
I thought I’d take a walk down memory lane and recall the horror books that defined my childhood. Most notable, of course, were the three Scary Story to Tell in the Dark books. I have such fond memories of scaring my brother with these.
There are horror books I enjoy and then there are those that scare the living daylight’s out of me! These are the books I refuse to ever pick up. Honestly, this is me documenting my greatest fears, so if anyone really wanted to scare me, well they could learn a lot from this post (but try not to get too many ideas).
My last October Fright post showcased my favorite shory-story author, the incomparable Edgar Allan Poe and some of my favorite stories by him. If you’re looking for a quick read to put you in the Halloween spirit, I suggest you pick up one of Poe’s short stories. It’s certainly what I’m planning to do.
There were also a few books I read and reviewed this month that I would classify as horror-ish (meaning they include magic, witches, ghosts, killers, or stalkers). Click on the titles below to read my review:
And lastly, I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
