As October comes to a close, I realize I’ve posted what feels like a gazillion times about novels in the horror genre. As a result, I have accumulated quite a few new books that I want to read.
1. The Ring by Koji Suzuki
Everyone tells me this book is fantastic and way scarier than the movie. I freaking loved the movie (because it was terrifying), so naturally, this has to be high on my list!
2. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
I only heard about this book for the first time this year! And then to additionally learn that it’s a classic? MUST READ.
3. Ghost Story by Peter Straub
Another one I hadn’t heard of until recently, but when I found out that it’s one of the most popular horror novels of all time, I had to move this up to the top of my horror TBR!
4. World War Z by Max Brooks
I love zombie stories. PERIOD. They’re probably my favorite type of horror. That being said, this novel had been on and off my TBR a number of times. First I heard I wasn’t going to like it, but then enough of you have told me it’s excellent and worth the read that I decided it’s time for it to be back on the list! Hopefully by the time next year’s Bookish Halloween Bonanza rolls around, I’ll have a review of it waiting for you.
5. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
As mentioned above, I love zombie novels. So this is an obvious choice!
