5 Atmospheric Horror Books For Your Spooktober Reading List

Halloween’s my favorite holiday, but this year it looks like it’s going to be a little . . . different. But that doesn’t mean it has to be disappointing!

Here are 5 books to add to your Spooktober reading list if you’re looking for a creepy, atmospheric escape!

The book that got me back into reading ghost stories! This one delivers all the chills, thrills!
I couldn’t put this one down! There’s a lot going on here, and it gets wrapped up in a neat, creepy package.
Creepy house? Check. Vulnerable female lead? Check. Something wicked afoot? Check.
Slow burning gothic horror that culminates in a chilling climax!
This one goes off on an odd tangent, and I wasn’t the biggest fan, but there’s no denying the eerie atmosphere in this one!
