8 books to read this Halloween!

Yes, I am making my own list of books to read for your enjoyment this Halloween. I do understand that we are barely into September at the present moment but this gives everyone plenty of time to either purchase the books or check it out from your local library or however you normally acquire books to read. The list is in no particular order whatsoever. Enjoy!

This is a book I read last year around summer time. It’s a book about good versus evil, however, there are some horror elements to it.

This book is typically labeled as a mystery but I find it kind of scary. 10 people are stranded on an island and then people start mysteriously dying one by one. This book will keep the pages turning.

I read this book a couple of years ago but it’s still one of my favorites. A man who is a legendary rock artist who is haunted by a ghost, this book will stick with you even after you’ve finished reading it.

I read this book last year on my Kindle. It’s a great read for anyone who would enjoy a good haunted house story.

This is another favorite of mine that I read a couple of years ago. A group of people go to a house to investigate it to see if it’s “haunted” and by the end of the book, you won’t be able to sleep without the lights on.

This is one of my all time favorite books to read if you’re looking for a good scare. A teenage girl moves into a run down mansion with her father and weird things start happening as soon as they move in.

This isn’t really a haunted house story but more about a specific family that is haunted. There are some nice twists that will keep you reading.

Two sisters run away to go live with their aunt in order to escape horrible living conditions at home, only to find that the safe haven they thought they were walking into isn’t really as safe as they thought.

“Hallowe’en Party” by Agatha Christie

I just recently finished reading this book so now I can write about it. I’ve read some of Agatha Christie’s work before so I know she is a good author to pick up with I’m in the mood for a classic “who done it” novel and this novel definitely fits that bill. I did enjoy this novel even though I was able to guess the ending before we got to it (at least, partially speaking). If you want to know what I mean by that statement, you’ll have to contact me because I don’t want to blast any spoilers out there for anyone who hasn’t read this novel yet and would like to do so. Anyway, if you love a good mystery or a nice murder mystery, you may want to pick up this novel.

Synopsis: A teenage murder witness is drowned in a tub of apples… At a Hallowe’en party, Joyce—a hostile thirteen-year-old—boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the ‘evil presence’. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer…
