Halloween is over, but we’re heading into the season of dark and cold, so why not curl up with a book? The kind that spreads delicious chills down your spine while you drink something hot and think you’re safe. The first one I’d recommend is a classic:

Dracula, by Bram Stoker

It’s called a classic for a very good reason. It builds quietly, pulling us into a different time and place until we’re caught in its net. And there are no sparkles here.

The next two came highly recommended, although I haven’t read them yet.

A Book of Horrors, by Stephen Jones (Editor) Format: Kindle Edition

From Amazon: A collection of original horror and dark fantasy from the world’s best writers, including Stephen King and John Ajvide Lindqvist.

Harbor, by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Suspenseful and chilling. I’m easily scared but I might still read this one—during the daytime.

And finally, something for the younger set, although I think it’s good for adults too:

Great Ghost Stories of the Old West, Edited by Betty Baker

Who says ghosts only reside in houses? These tales are alternating scary, hauntingly beautiful, and mournful. What’s not to like?

Happy reading!

    Dracula is such a timeless story.

    It is! I’m going to be rereading it this week. 🙂
