Happy October! 🎃👻🍂✨
Looking for some spooky books to cozy up to on a chilly autumn day?
I got you covered.
It’s officially my favorite month on the year and we’re kicking off Blogtober with some spooky reading recommendations in case you need any last minute books to add to your TBR this month! For even more books you can check out my list from last year HERE or you can take a look at the books I’m planning on reading for the rest of this month HERE…give or take a few since I’m a mood reader and all. Either way I hope you guys have the best spooky season and I’m going to try to update here as much as possible this month to keep the Halloween spirit alive and well in these weird times.
Let’s dive in!
Spooky Reading Recommendations
This dark fantasy is packed to the gills with supernatural creatures that will be sure to keep you on your feet from start to finish. I absolutely loved Fortuna Sworn and it’s sequel Restless Slumber! If you loved True Blood back in the day and enjoyed ACOTAR I definitely think this will be a hit for you.
You can find my review for books ones and two HERE!
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires
The Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires is a book that legitimately gave me the creeps. It’s not the scariest book out there by any means but it definitely has a few parts that will make your skin crawl because you know….who wants to read about cockroaches burrowing in ears and all that. But either way between the creepiness and the vampire slaying it’s a damn good time.
The Bone Houses
If you’re on the market for standalone with a deep mystery, epic adventure, and zombie-like creatures then I would highly recommend The Bone Houses. This is such a good read to curl up with on a chilly day and one that will hit you right in the feels too.
What’s Halloween without a good ol’ slasher movie or book? Final Girls has a lot of the classic horror tropes that we’ve all grown to love over the years and I’ll be the first to admit that I never saw the end of this one coming…because of that I’ll definitely be reading more of Sager’s work in the future!
I’m still not over how much I loved this book and I won’t leave much more of an explanation than that because I think I’ve gushed about this in my last three posts. There’s seriously so much to love but without a doubt this book is absolutely perfect to read during the month of October.
Catherine House is a creepy, unique story that will suck you in and make it almost impossible to look away. While I don’t think this book will be for everyone (it really wasn’t for me) it’s definitely one of those reads that you just need to experience for yourself and make up your own mind about.
Witches of Ash and Ruin
A witchy read is another must on the list of spooky reads! This book has really great anxiety and LGBT+ rep and left off on a very promising note for an action packed sequel that I’ll be excited to pick up once it comes out.
