Spooky October reads

Although horror is not my genre of choice, there have been a few horror titles that have stuck with me over the years.  Because of this, I’ve decided to share five titles with you.  I’m anxious to see if you’ve read any, or all of these, and would love to hear your thoughts.






  1. Harvest home” by Thomas Tryon
  2. Whispers” by Dean Koontz
  3. The woman in black” by Susan Hill
  4. Misery” by Stephen King
  5. The haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson

AND… since October is the month to watch a scary movie or two… Here is a movie that made me hide behind a pillow…

    I’ve read Misery and novels by the other authors but not the titles you suggested. So, cool, my October TBR plate is now full.

    I’ve read The Woman in Black and the Haunting of Hill House and really enjoyed them both so I should check out your other suggestions.

  4. I’ve been meaning to read The Woman in White for ages! Good time for it.


  5. Misery is brilliant!


  6. The Woman in Black is an amazing read and SO much better than the movie adaptation. Shirley Jackson is also a great author for October! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on these.
