ARE YOU READY? Welcome to a spooky TBR time! The first of the Spooktober is here, Halloween is coming  duology! Today I am sharing the books I want, nay, need to read for Spooktober!

Finally, FINALLY, I can get started on all the spooky books! I have been searching around for spooky stuff and I am delighted to share with you all the books I got this year. I got some great ones both on my physical stack as on my Kindle/ebook stack! Back when I first wrote this post mid-September I didn’t have that much on my physical stack, but now at the end of September? Boo, I got so much again thanks to German manga + Kindle books + library hauls and I am all loving it! I am pretty sure I won’t get to read them all, but who knows. Whoop whoop! I cannot wait to get started on these, now the question remains, which one first. The age old question that I ask myself each year.

I got two parts again, this year I made some fun banners for them. Physical and Kindle books!

What are you reading this upcoming Spooktober? Do you have any recommendations on books I need to read ASAP? I love a good haunted house story! So let me know in the comments~

Oh, and look forward to my horror movies/series post coming tomorrow!

  1. Look at all these fabulous books! I’ve heard so many good things about Hell Followed with Us. It sounds incredible. Glitch looks like something I’d be interested in. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Hope you enjoy all the books you pick up this October! Happy haunting!

    1. I am currently reading Hell Followed with Us and so far I am very enthusiastic about it. It is a bit confusing at points, but for most it is good. Glitch was not that scary, but very mysterious and had a spooky vibe. You’re welcome! Thank you!! Happy Haunting to you as well!

  2. There’s so many I love it! I have read one of these, Four Found Dead, which is really solid on the tension, I just wasn’t too enthused by the plot and ending overall.
