Halloween Reads-Updated Edition

I haven't done a Halloween book list in a couple of years and I definitely have some spooky titles to share that weren't on there.

Get your flashlight and cozy blanket handy.

See What I Have Done, by Sarah Schmidt, is a fictional take on the real-life Lizzie Borden mystery- the gruesome murders of Fall River, Massachusetts. This will definitely keep you up at night.

J.W. Ocker's memoir A Season with the Witch: The Magic and Mayhem of Salem, Massachusetts is a fun, interesting and only slightly scary tale of one family's time in the Witch City. I grew up in and around Salem and Ocker gets its combo of schlock and history just right.

Dan Chaon's Ill Will is a long and frankly terrifying crime novel with a brutal twist ending. If you've never read him before- or even if you have- buckle up.

Out is a crime novel from Japan about how evil seeps into everything around it. The tale of a group of women drawn into a murder and its consequences, all the while moving around a vicious killer none of them knows about, will keep you turning pages to the bitter end.

Last year I finally read Bram Stoker's Dracula and if you haven't read it, you really have to. It's an incredible read and one of the foundations of modern horror.

Have a great Halloween!
