Okay, I admit it: I buy Halloween candy “for trick-or-treaters,” but usually most of it has mysteriously disappeared by the time the 31st rolls around. Why not enjoy a more grown-up treat of a spooky story this Halloween? Whether you’re a fan of vampires, ghosts, or just anything that goes bump in the night, we probably have a book that will send chills down your spine!
Here are just a few classic fearsome favorites:
At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny
The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe
Shadowland by Peter Straub
The Shining by Stephen King
The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
Enjoy these terrifying tales and remember…it’s okay to sleep with the light on.
