Happy Halloween: 6 Spooky Reads I Love

Happy Halloween!

So for today I decided to feature some of my favorite spoooooky reads. They will be ordered randomy and I recommend each and every one! ♥

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
Nevermore is one of my all time favorite books and trilogies from way back in the day (2012) that has one of my ultimate book boyfriends: Varen Nethers. Please tell me there are people who still remember him. *dreamy sigh* Also, it all involves Edgar Allan Poe and his stories if that wasn't obvious yet because of the title. ;)

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco
I don't read a lot of horro but this is probably the creepiest book I've ever read. But even so this (and the sequel) are actually really good. Rin Chupeco writes the best characters, in my opinion. I always end up loving them so much, even when they scare the living shit out of me.

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
This is a classic story but one of my favorites by Poe. It's part of Penguin's Little Black Classics collection, which I am so obsessed with. As far as the story goes, it's one I always re-read around Halloween. It's perfect for it.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
This is a very recent release that I think has been on everyone's radar pretty much. I also recently read it and now it's one of my top favorites of 2019. There are a lot of scenes that were spooky and creepy and just nasty but damn I loved it all! I think it's Leigh's best book so far.

The Fall by Bethany Griffin
This is a retelling of Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the Hous of Usher. Yes, Poe again. I'm obsessed, okay. But anyways... I really enjoyed this book. I adored the writing so much. It's really beautifully written and the story by Poe is my favorite by him so I couldn't not mention this retelling here.

Another classic! This is actually what I consider my favorite classic of all time. I collect different editions and covers of this book, that's how much I love it. And how beautiful is the cover of this edition, by the way? I adore it so much!

What are your favorite spooky reads?


  1. The Girl from the Well -- DAMN that's creepy! I am so eager to get my hands on Bardugo's newest! Though slightly apprehensive you have it on your spooky reads list!

  2. Ooh, that is a beautiful edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray! I read that earlier this year and really enjoyed it! The Girl From the Well - even the name is creepy! I'm staying away from that one!

  3. hmmm the only book I am familiar with is the Leigh Bardago one.. but nevermore looks good... Think I will check that one out :)

  4. I haven't read any of these but I would love to read Poe, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Ninth House soon!

  5. What a great list! There are so many here that I have yet to read. The Girl From the Well is one that I have had my eye on and I am so happy that you enjoyed it. :)

  6. Ninth House and The Picture of Dorian Gray are two books I really want to read as soon as I possibly can!
