It’s October, and Halloween is just a few weeks away,To celebrate, I thought I would share my picks for spooky autumn reads. Since there are only so many times you can re-watch Nightmare on Elm Street.
It- Stephen King
I’m sure everyone has heard about this book by now especially with the movie now being in theater. I first read this book when in was in high school, about 10 years ago. This time around I am listening to it on audio book. It is about a small town called Derry, where there are strange murders are going on where no one is to sure what is happening. As we the reader though know they are being committed by someone dressed as a clown. There is a group of children and the story is told in different POV’s between all the character’s from when they were kid’s and now as adults. This is a very long book to read over a thousand pages, the audio book is 44 hours. I think this is a perfect book to read in October.
How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather
This witchy book is the perfect book to read this time of year. I read it only a few months ago and really enjoyed it. How to Hang a Witch is set in Salem the town famous for the witch trials. Our protagonist Samantha has moved in with her stepmother to her Father’s childhood house. She becomes enemies with a group of girls called the descendants, actual decedents of witches from the trials. If that inst enough Sam also encounters a ghost of a boy who is angry that Sam is in the house. You can see my review here.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
This novel was described as Scream in YA form. Highly anticipated thriller by Stephanie Perkins. Makani, an African american/native Hawaiian girl is sent to move in with her grandmother by her divorcing parents. Here she befriends a trans boy named Darby and his friend Alex. There are a close knit group of friends, when Makani starts to date Ollie they are suspicious of him as there are strange murders happening around town. I enjoyed this novel and recommend picking it up if your looking for a fun fast read. This is my most recent review and you can see it here.
