Need a spooky but not gory book for OctoberNeed a spooky book for October but not gory Chris #recommend
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. One of the most chilling stories I have ever read!
@Chad loved it!
Netflix is also releasing a movie adaptation of it this October
@Jensen This is great news!
There have already been two other movies based on this novel:
I’ve heard good things about Bird Box by Josh Malerman, but haven’t started it yet. It’s on my coffee table and up next! 🙂
Following for ideas, too!
Me too! ?
We have always lived in the castle
The Auctioneer by Joan Samson
The Halloween tree
Yes! Such a delightful read. I strongly recommend reading it out loud – the words are delicious, and need to be felt and heard.
Ann Charles Deadwood Series
I second the Deadwood Series!
Ha! Funny running into you here!
That’s what I was thinking! Lol
This house in haunted by John Boyne. Chilling, well written, Victorian ghost story. Perfect Halloween reading.
LOVED that book!
A Head Full Of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay
Loved this too! Lol!
Man, all of these so far are either on a long wait list or not on there at all on my Libby app ?
How old is the reader? Even though I was in my late forties, I loved reading Wolfbrother and the rest of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness by Michelle Paver with my teenagers.
I am waiting for Halloween week to rest Bird Box
Good question, @Chris! I’m following! Might have to check out Bird Box!! Is this for a Book Club?
@Marcy yes. It’s my turn to pick! They’ll be soooorry!
Bird Box was available when i checked, so I downloaded it! I’ll let you know what I think of it! Might be too scary for me! ?
“The Little Stranger” by Sarah Waters
Murder on the orient express by Agatha Christie!! Or (I haven’t read it yet) “And then there were none” – I’ve heard it’s super good! ?
Was Murder on the orient express made into movie too right? I saw it in the commercial.
@Empanada yes! There is an older movie from the 70/80s I think (?) and then there is one that came out very recently
Any books by Shirley Jackson.
@Stephanie I am finishing Frankenstein and then these two are next.
There is a read along I’m participating in on Instagram. You might be interested.
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Dracula and Campfire
Well done! We will try Bird Box. Thanks all!
Kill Creek, Scott Thomas. Awesome haunted house book.
Ghost orchid or night film
Both of these are spooky but not nightmare worthy
Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff.
The Girl With All the Gifts
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King
Speaking of King, I honestly don’t remember- Is there any gore in Salem’s Lot? It’s been over a decade since I read it, but I seem to remember that it was one of his milder ones….
@Stephanie ohh, i loved that book!
we read it in high school for an English class , so i’d say no
Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw
The Winter Peole
