I read the first book in this graphic novel series last year and loved it. I finally got hold of all the books and finished them this month by binge reading them. They are now one of my most favorite graphic novel series of all time. There are totally 6 books, but I got the master edition where each volume is a bind up of 2 books. This is written by Joe Hill, son of Stephen King so I went in with high expectations.
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.
I finally finished Dracula after wanting to read it from a long time. I was pretty sure this book would scare the hell out of me and would give me nightmares which was the reason for keeping it as a Halloween read but I couldn’t be more wrong. This book did not scare me one bit.
I don’t usually read horror books as I get scared easily. I stay away from ghost stories and haunted house stories but I do love reading gothic fiction. Especially when it comes to reading classics, I love gothic literature more than anything else. I love how these stories also have a science fiction element in them.
These are my favorite gothic books which are perfect for Halloween – as they are creepy but not as creepy as some of the other horror novels out there.
Happy Halloween Day everyone! 🙂
While in India, I was barely aware of this. But here they celebrate it in a very grand manner. This year we had a pumpkin decoration contest at office. My friend S suggested that we participate and I agreed instantly. We started planning on how to decorate. They said they will give us the pumpkins on 26th of this month and we need to submit the decorated ones on 29th. They kept the pumpkins and the decorating materials on 26th and you wont believe I had a meeting on 26th from morning 10. I could not go with S to pick the pumpkins or the materials. S, later on, thought she will pick them all by herself. The tragedy was by the time she went there, there were 1 or 2 pumpkins left and only one of them had the stem. She picked it up and some decoration items (all the carving materials were gone). By the time I came back from my meeting, even those were gone. I was glad that she picked them up in time.
