Recommend Me Books! – Horror Edition

When looking at my shelves for something to read this week, I realized something – I’m severely lacking horror books! I have some Stephen King, some YA books here and there.. But all in all my collection is rather tiny. And with Halloween coming up (yes, I’m already excited for that), I need your spooky book recommendations.

I’m looking for:

  • a book that can be considered “scary”
  • it can have ghosts or creepy crawlies, but also murderers or haunted houses or just a general menacing atmosphere
  • both adult and young-adult are great
  • romance as a subplot is okay, but not as the main focus of the book
  • something that will really get me in that autumn Halloween mood

If you’re curious to see what I already read, check out my Goodreads account. I keep track of all books I read on there. Don’t be afraid to recommend a book that is already on my to be read list, often I forget which books are on there!

To give you an idea of what I like, here are some scary books that I really enjoyed:

horror books

The Shining by Stephen King – (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn – White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick – Asylum by Madeleine Roux – The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff –
Eye Spy by Tahir Shah
