October 30: Halloween/Creepy Freebie

I don’t read a lot of horror or thrillers so this list will be short. These stories either gave me a chill or made me think how sick the world can be.

Creepiest books I’ve read:

1) Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn

2) Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus, by Mary Shelly

3) The Forest of Hands and Teeth, by Carrie Ryan. Her short story “Bougainvillea” from Zombies Vs Unicorns is set in the same universe.

4) NOS4A2, by Joe Hill
I am currently listening to this audiobook as my October/Halloween creep fest.
I thought about adding Horns to the list, but my memory of it is more from the movie, which felt more like a dark comedy. I recently got the audiobook of Horns.

5) Poe is a master of creepiness. My favorites are: “The Cask of Amontillado”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and “The Pit and the Pendulum”.

6) I Am Legend (and other stories) by Richard Matheson. I don’t remember much about the short stories, but reading over my review I did like them.

This is kind of sad. Maybe by next year I will have more to add to this list.
