October = Horror

My favorite month/holiday is forthcoming. I am excited and ready to pursue the realm of Horror once again. This used to be the only genre I would read. My mother is a huge Stephen King fan and I grew up on the movies based on his works (excited for the It remake). I watched Tales From the Crypt, my favorite movie for years was Demon Knight (Ahh, Billy Zane), followed closely by The Craft. As a child Goosebumps (along with, Are You Afraid of the Dark?) was my go-to followed by Fear Street. When I got older, I was drawn to even darker works. That being said, I am truly difficult to scare. Now, I search and search for something even remotely capable.

Below is my list of Horror books that came close, in no particular order:

10. The Omen


9. The Woman in Black


8. The Ritual


7. The Best of H. P. Lovecraft


6. The Child Thief


5. The Darkest Powers Series


4. Let the Right One In


3. The Vanishing


2. The Terror


1. The Hellfire Club


Again, these are in no particular order, just my top 10. I do have a young-adult series in here and I would encourage any horror fan to pick it up. There are some moments where I was even taken aback. This series played on my particular fears.

What are your favorite Horror novels? I’d love to add to my collection.
