Today’s Topic is: : Halloween Freebie (So today we got a freebie and I decided to write about 10 spooky books that made me curious and which I want to read! XD)
1.) „Mexican Gothic“ by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I finally got this from my library and even though it’s almost the end of October I still want to read it! I might finish it after Halloween but I’m sure that won’t take away any of my enjoyment! XD And for everyone who never heard about „Mexican Gothic“ before: It’s a book about a girl that gets a letter from her cousin who just married an English man and asks for the MCs help! Apparently strange things happen at their house and it’s full of secrets. Sounds mysterious and right up my alley!
2.) „The Guest List“ by Lucy Foley
I think everyone and their grandma already read this so I decided to jump on the hype train and to read it soon! One year too late but we all know I’m a snail! ;-P What makes this book interesting for me is the murder mystery on a deserted island. I can never resist those and of course you can bet that I’ll try to solve the murder in this as well. *lol*
3.) „Afterlove“ by Tanya Byrne
A book about fierce girl reapers that collect the souls of the dead until they can make their way to the afterlife and a f/f star-crossed love story on top of it? Do I really have to say more? Nope! I don’t think so! The cover says it all and I’m so here for it!
4.) „Shade“ by Chad Nicholas
So many of my fellow BookTubers raved about this and by now I’m so curious that I put it on my TBR. „Shade“ is a psychological thriller about a serial killer and the people that try to stop him. I really don’t know more about the book than that but the excitement of other reviewers was so strong that I just can’t help but want to read this. It sounds very intriguing and complex and as we all know I love books like that. XD
5.) „The Wicked Deep“ by Shea Ernshaw
This book has been all over my feed for years and the plot sounds super interesting. I mean three sisters that were sentenced to death because they were believed to be witches and that now return every year in order to steal the bodies of 3 young girls to do… Well, to basically lure boys into the harbor and to drown them in cold blood. Sounds like a perfect Halloween read to me! Plus I love myself some nasty witches! ;-P
6.) „The Sullivan Sisters“ by Kathryn Ormsbee
Okay, so first of all I’ve to declare that I’m in LOVE with this absolutely stunning cover! Like seriously! ❤ This said, this is a story about three sisters that couldn’t be any more different even if they tried and that have more secrets than they need. But then, just before Christmas, a letter about a dead uncle they had no clue existed arrives and apparently he even left an inheritance for them. A possible murder, a family mystery, three sisters. This book seems to have it all! Give it to me! =)
7.) „Empire of the Vampire“ by Jay Kristoff
It’s about VAMPIRES and Jay Kristoff wrote it! So how am I supposed to say no to this?! *lol* But seriously this book sounds great and I can’t wait to read Jay’s take on vampires. I bet this is going to be super dark and bloody and very, very adult! So yeah! I’m ready! Bring it on, Jay! ;-P
8.) „The Cavern“ by Alister Hodge
A sink hole that uncovers a mysterious cave system and an expedition to explore it? Ahh this sounds so damn intriguing! And as if we wouldn’t already have to deal with the pressure of being underwater (quite literally) and not seeing the sun there’s a savage predator in those caves as well? Sounds super spooky and I’m all in!
9.) „Broken Things“ by Lauren Oliver
Three girls alone in the woods and only two return out of it alive. What happened 5 years ago when Summer died and Mia and Brynn were the only ones to come out of the woods? Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend but is this really true? I guess it’s about time to find out.
10.) „The Walls Around Us“ by Nova Ren Suma
I have no idea what this is about, but I know that it’s a supernatural story about the question of guilt and innocence and that it’s about three girls. One of them in prison, one of them a dancer on the outside and the last one Orianna, well, apparently she’s the big mystery that connects them and needs to be solved.
So what about you? Which horror books or thrillers do you want to read? Do you know some of the books I spoke about and if yes, which ones did you read? Can you recommend any other good books for the spooky season?
