We asked our Instagram followers what books they suggest during spooky season. Here are the titles they recommend for a frightful night in!
Last week, we asked our Instagram followers for their spooky season book recommendations.
Ranging from the atmospheric to the downright terrifying, here’s what our followers had to say about their favorite scary stories!
The Halloween Tree, by Ray Bradbury, pretty much every October. 🎃 👻 🌳
Dracula, a timeless classic.🧛
How Love Came to Professor Guildea by Robert Hichens 🖤
Oh definitely some Edgar Allan Poe 👻
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman! I’m 32 and will continue reading it until I’m old and gray! 🖤🦇🕷🕸👻
Loch by Paul Zindel and any of his other cryptid books! 😍
I LOVE revisiting Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes. It’s the perfect Halloween read and just an all-around tremendous novel 🧡🖤
Anything by Shirley Jackson.
I read The Shining and The Exorcist pretty much every year. By now they don’t even really scare me; they are more comforting than anything else.
I always enjoy some Clive Barker
Bag of Bones by Stephen King
Any and everything Edgar Allan Poe! ❤️
Something Wicked This Way Comes, Ray Bradbury
Reading and enjoying a new one by Gemma Amor, Six Rooms.
