October is Halloween month and right time to read spooky books. Today, I was browsing through my bookshelves and realized that I have hoarded way too many spooky books.
Some of these are classics like “We have always lived in the castle” by Shirley Jackson, “Turn of the screw” by Henry James and “The woman in white” by Wilkie Collins. All these have been on my TBR for a long time now.
I bought a copy of Stephen King’s IT last year for Halloween, since I have never read anything by Stephen King (I mean, his fiction. I have read his memoir). I was obsessed with Stranger Things and people said this was very similar to ST. I am not sure if I will be able to actually read this book, considering how I am a chicken when it comes to horror.
I have one horror book that I bought this year about killer mermaids –“Into the drowning deep” by Mira Grant. I started reading this book earlier but put it down in order to read something else.
I also want to finish Locke and Key series by Joe Hill which I started last year. I also have “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostava but I read The Dracula last year and want to read something else this year.
I also have “The day of triffids” by John Wyndham and “The Island of Dr. Moreau” by H.G. Wells, but I am not in the mood to read Science Fiction lately and I am totally in fantasy mood now. So I might not read that.
I might pick and read a few books from this TBR in october, depending on my mood.
