Favourite Horror/Spooky Books Recommendation 2023 Edition

Favourite Horror/Spooky Books Recommendation 2023 Edition

Afternoon all!

Welcome all to a new post! I am recommending some of my fav (mostly 4.5+ starred) spooky books~

Each year I read plenty of spooky books, the most I read in October. The past years I shared during Halloween (see 2022 and 2021), and I will also definitely do a fun post on Halloween with the books I read this month (well, if I get my luck back for spooky books as so far they haven’t impressed me just yet). But I thought I would do a MEGA recommendation post to share all my favourite books from November 2022 to September 2023. And believe me everyone, you won’t be bored! Because it is really MEGA! I went through my Don’t Turn on the Lights (horror) shelf and selected 5+ starred books, 5 starred books, and also added a few 4.5 and 4 starred books because I had to add them! And by posting it early October you all got plenty of time to read all of these for the spooky season! I got something for everyone. I got zombies, things that go bump in the night, dares that may just summon demons, I got ghosts that are in your house (right behind you), and other critters of the dark!

Oh, and in the case of Zombie 100 and Aveline Jones and Fright Watch, I have added the covers to the first books and added a link to the series!

So are you ready for this superduper big list of books? Let me know in the comments if you found a book you want to read (or books)!
