Hey there Bookish Babes! So I know I’ve already posted an October TBR, but I wanted to chat about the most anticipated spooky reads on my bookshelf. Halloween is one of my absolute favorite seasons but I haven’t always been into the horror aspect of it. Over the past couple of years I have definitely gotten more into horror movies/TV shows and now I want to get more into spooky books!
I picked this up at second hand book store in Denton, TX a few years ago for only $6! I have already read several stories in this collection but I really want to read the whole thing through. Edgar Allan Poe is definitely my kind of creepy so I’m excited to get more into this collection.
So this is more of to re-read than TBR. My husband gave me this book as a Christmas gifts several years ago when we were dating and I LOVE it! These Barnes and Noble leather bound books are just absolutely beautiful and look fantastic on a bookshelf. I’ve read through this collection of stories and I really love reading the creepy original tales and seeing how they compare to the watered down versions I learned as a kid.
This is one where I’ve seen the movie but have yet to read the book (I try to avoid doing this). I really love the movie and have heard great things about this series so I was excited when I found a copy at a library sale earlier this year. I’m looking forward to seeing if this lives up to the hype.
I really don’t know too much about this one, it caught my eye a few months ago at a library sale. I’ve read some of Peretti’s young adult horror books and really enjoyed them as a teen which made me curious to try this one out.
This is another one where I’ve seen the movie before reading the book. I really enjoyed the movie even though it received a lot of criticism for being so drastically different from the book. I’m interested in seeing how the book differs as I don’t know too much about it besides what the movie portrayed.
Just like Monster I picked this up on a complete whim at a recent Half Priced Books warehouse sale (haul coming soon!). The cover definitely drew me in and I found the description intriguing. This is not something I would normally pick up, but ’tis the season!
Do you love reading creepy books during the Halloween season? What are some spooky books you’ve been wanting to read? As always I would love to know!
