Books have always been a huge aspect of my life and I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
I can easily sit for hours with a cup of tea and a good book. I read literally anything and everything.
So I am here today to talk to you about books, unless you haven’t yet noticed.
Now onto the main part of the article.
As this month is the month of Halloween I thought why not write about a few books that have a spooky theme. Or at least recommend some that I have read and enjoyed. I do love a lot of horror and thriller books, so this time of year is simply perfect for that sort of thing. Don’t you agree?
I read most of these last year during the month of October and they really set the vibes, although some of them I read years ago.
1# – For the older readers:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
There are various other kinds of these classic novels that include a horror twist, although I have yet to read any others. If you have please let me know if they are any good. I would love to hear from you.
The Silent Companions: by Lucy Purcell
This is a tantalisingly creepy and menacing gothic horror novel, populated by ghosts, and set in 1866 and 1630’s. It really stuck with me and would be the perfect book to read during the month of Halloween.
Anything by James Herbert, although I can particularly recommend The Secret of Crickley Hall. I think that one is my favourite so far by him. He always sends shivers down my spine.
Stephen King is also a brilliant horror writer. I haven’t read much by him so far but he is definitely an author that I plan to read more of. Currently having only read three of his novels those being Carrie, Christine and Misery. I can safely say that he is a hard reader to follow and his books can often get a little confusing.
2# – For younger readers:
Gobbilino the Witches Cat:
This book is funny and light-hearted and one that I still enjoy now even after first reading it almost 10 years ago when I was 11. I can definitely recommend it to to younger readers. Nothing creepy, just humorous and about a little black cat with a white paw trying to find his way in life.
Breathe: A Ghost Story: by Cliff McNish
This book is aimed at those around the age of 13. It is a little creepy at times but nothing to horrible so of you are looming for a ghost story that will chill you to the bone then this is definitely not the book for you. Yet it still makes a good ghost story and most certainly worth a read.
hope you enjoyed this and I will see you tomorrow.
