The Best Halloween Books for Adults
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
A Classic that's creepy but won't keep you up all times of night jumping at the slightest sound.
The Haunting of Hill House (Penguin Classics)
One of the best ghost stories ever written, this book follows four strangers: an occult scholar, his assistant, a troubled woman with a history of supernatural encounters, and the soon-to-be heir of the house as they gather at Hill House.
My Soul to Keep (African Immortals series)
One of my favorite creepy/scary books. From Amazon:
"When Jessica marries David, he is everything she wants in a family man: brilliant, attentive, ever youthful. Yet she still feels something about him is just out of reach. Soon, as people close to Jessica begin to meet violent, mysterious deaths, David makes an unimaginable confession: More than 400 years ago, he and other members of an Ethiopian sect traded their humanity so they would never die, a secret he must protect at any cost."
Winner of the Bram Stoker award, this book follows a generic midwest town where everyone is obsessed with a menacing figure of a little boy with a weapon who emerges annually on Halloween night in the cornfields
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
The Halloween Classic! If you haven't read this book ever, this is the perfect year to go ahead and see what the fuss is about
The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe (Timeless Classics (5))
If you haven't read Edgar Allen Poe's scary poems or collection of short stories, now is the time to start.
The Ballad of Black Tom
Charles Thomas Tester hustles to put food on the table, keep the roof over his father's head, from Harlem to Flushing Meadows to Red Hook. He knows what magic a suit can cast, the invisibility a guitar case can provide, and the curse written on his skin that attracts the eye of wealthy white folks and their cops. But when he delivers an occult tome to a reclusive sorceress in the heart of Queens, Tom opens a door to a deeper realm of magic, and earns the attention of things best left sleeping.
Think Lovecraft country...scary...
From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes “a terrifying twist on classic gothic horror” (Kirkus Reviews) set in glamorous 1950s Mexico. “It’s Lovecraft meets the Brontës in Latin America, and after a slow-burn start Mexican Gothic gets seriously weird” (The Guardian).
It: A Novel
Stephan King's CLASSIC about 7 adults who come come to confront from their teenage years...IT
Not your everyday Vampire book! This is the story of an apparently young, amnesiac girl whose alarmingly unhuman needs and abilities lead her to a startling conclusion: She is in fact a genetically modified, 53-year-old vampire.
I hope that these spooky stories and creepy reads to help you enjoy this halloween season even more! Hope you enjoy this list of halloween books for adults! And have a Happy Halloween!
