Halloween Horror Reads!

It’s officially October, which means it’s time to start thinking about all those great Halloween reads, either in your TBR already or hitting up the bookstores from some personal Trick or Treating.

I love a good Halloween-themed read, especially over the 31 days between now and month’s end. My review commitments are keeping my reading time pretty tight this month, though, but I’m hoping to spice things up with a few pumpkin frights in between all the ARCs demanding my attention. Here are a few of the many Hallowen books in my TBR that I’m planning to pull from in the coming weeks as October wears on.

Some of these - most of the anthologies in particular - I’ve read previously and can personally vouch for and won’t be returning to again this year simply due to time constraints. Others will be brand new to me, like Bryan Smith’s All Hallow’s Dead, John Everson’s The Pumpkin Man, and Norman Partridge’s Dark Harvest. I’m hoping to get to each of these three if nothing else, but we’ll see. Time is a rare and fleeting commodity these days.

Below are thirteen (naturally!) Halloween horrors that have caught my eye over the past few years. Click the pic to head over to the Amazon product page to find out more about these titles and buy a book or two if they strike your fancy (and remember, this site does use affiliate links, so purchasing a book I’ve linked to helps me run this site, in addition to supporting the authors and publishers of the works featured here). And head down to the comments section to recommend some Halloween-specific reads, especially those by women authors, which I had a difficult time pinning down for this list!

Happy Halloween!
