Happy Halloween! Did you gift someone a scary book in honor of All Hallow’s Read? I didn’t (maybe next year), but I thought I’d celebrate Halloween by recommending some scary/creepy/atmospheric Halloween reads to you! The links take you to GoodReads.
Kiernan’s second book, Threshold, could be argued to be more dark fantasy than horror, and the prose in it might not be for everyone, but I loved it. Heart-Shaped Box is the purest horror novel on this list – it’s more disturbing, and will scare you.
Threshold by Caitlín R. Kiernan
Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
Hope you like these recommendations, and have a creepy Halloween!
