With myriad review commitments I seldom read the way I used to do before ‘The Blog‘. Then, I often read seasonally. That is beachy reads in the summer, Christmas reads at the end of the year and spooky reads in October.
Today, I’m sharing some of the thrillers, ghost stories, and horror titles that are patiently waiting on my TBR as of today.
Perhaps you’ll find your next October read!
“Blood Harvest” by the fabulous Sharon Bolton has been on my TBR for ages. I’m really looking forward to this one!
“The Dead Summer” enticed me with its attractive cover.
After reading a review for “The Ash House” in 2017, I added this title to my TBR. It really piqued my interest.
Again, it was the cover that first compelled me to add “The Broken Hours” to my TBR. It is a story of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.
A glowing review by a fellow bookblogger tempted me to add “The Wayward Girls” to my TBR.
(Bookbloggers are such naughty people)
“The House on Cold Hill” was another title that was recommended to me by a fellow bookblogger. To be honest, the author alone sold me on this one.
Again, it was the stunning cover that made me add “Cauldstane” to my TBR.
“Naomi’s Room” was recommended to me by a friend.
It was the combination of the stunning cover and a glowing review that tempted me to add “The Good Sisters” to my TBR.
A recent review by a fellow bookblogger enticed me to add “The Hive“.
Looks like I have some excellent reading in store!
I read “Harvest Home” over 30 years ago and I still remember just how creepy it was…
Again, I read “Whispers” around thirty years ago. It introduced me to one of the modern masters of horror, Dean Koontz.
I read “The Dead House” in 2018 and I was chilled by the book – especially the ending…
My review of “The Dead House” is here.
I read “The Woman in Black” about a decade or so ago. It is a classic for lovers of the gothic ghost story.
“The Haunting of Hill House” was the most frightening of any book I’ve every read. (the TV show was also extremely well done and very scary)
“The Weathering” by Lucy Wood has remained in my memory for its atmospheric chill.
My review of “The Weathering” can be found here.
I read “The Broken Girls” in April of 2018. Loved it. You can read my review here.
AND… since October is the month to watch a scary movie or two… Here is a movie that made me hide behind a pillow…
