I’m sure it will not come as a shock that I was planning a spooky Halloween theme for the month of October. A couple of years ago in early September, I found several scary titles at my local library, which led to challenging myself to read 31 books by October 31…and I did it! This year I wanted to attempt this fun read-fest again, and I came into September prepared and ready to go!
Going through my vast book hoard, I pulled out these titles that have been sitting around for some time…
…as well as these newer titles I’ve been itching to start…
…and let’s not forget the 80+ horror-themed titles waiting for me on my kindle!
My biggest problem is trying to figure out where to start! There’s haunted houses and motels (even a haunted beer factory!), vampires, zombies, sideshow freaks, psychological terror, and some spook-tacular nonfiction thrown in for good measure. And don’t worry, I do have some fun, Halloween-themed cozy mysteries to help lighten the mood a bit and provide some comic relief.
While it’s too early to know what my Goodreads groups will choose for October, I do know that my friend’s local book club will be reading The Amityville Horror and I am sooo on top of that! I pulled out my well-worn copy and will be ready to start my 4th re-read on October 1st!
Will you be reading some frightening fiction in the next month or two? Let me know! Be sure to check out my weekly updates or my Goodreads page to follow my progress!
Stay safe, be kind, and Happy Reading!
