Well for October I should have had way many more posts than what I’d done, which so far is this one. However, I thought a Top 5 was a good way to start because it’s Halloween and Horror is the perfect genre! There are so many to choose from so this was definitely a difficult list to narrow down to just five. I have many many books in this genre that I adore but this is my top 5 today. Maybe tomorrow that will change, who knows?
Let’s dive in to the five books that I picked for my top 5. I’m going to list number 5 first and work backwards so number 1 will be the last book you read about!
#5. The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
This book is great, I did a review of it. It’s got that cool found footage feel to it and the twist at this end is really great. Didn’t see that one coming at all. I delve a bit more into it in my review so be sure to check that out if you are interested in it.
#4. Asylum by Madeleine Roux
I found this one after I had read Miss Peregrine’s because it had the same idea with the pictures to help tell the story. I really enjoyed this story, it has that perfect ghostly feel to it for this time of year. You can read my review if you want to learn a little more about it.
#3. Dreamland by Nick Clausen
This one is technically a horror because it’s got ghosts but it’s on the list because it’s just a great book. It isn’t scary but it’s wonderfully written and such a fun read. I did a review on it that you can read if you want to get a bit more of what I thought of this one.
#2. Haverscroft by S.A. Harris
This book is amazing. If you want a book that has a suspenseful ghost story while also showcasing the misconceptions of mental illness and why it’s such an important discussion. Please read my review because I really go into detail about what is great about this book.
#1. The Dark Game by Jonathan Janz
This book messed me up. In the best of way. I would say hands down one of the best horror novels I’ve ever read. It is a deeply disturbing book but I loved it. There were so many twists and turns in this one. Seriously if you haven’t read it. Jonathan Janz knows how to write some scary stuff! If you want more details on what I liked about this one, please check out the review I did.
Okay so I didn’t even realize when I picked these that I’d done reviews on all of them but then I realized that I had when finished this post. So that’s a bit of a coincidence. I really enjoyed all these books and I would recommend them to anyone that wanted a good spooky book to read for Halloween!
I’d love to know what you guys think about these about these choices! Comment below! I read all my comments and reply as soon as I can!

Great, thank you for the recs!! Hopefully there shall be one in there that will work for me ?
I’ve seen asylum on my libby app.. and while I thought about reading it, im not so sure how I feel about the pictures?? specially in e-book format..
Yeah I don’t know how it’d work in an ebook but if you got a hold of the book it really adds to the atmosphere of the book.
Thank you so much!
I never heard of any of these! I think I will start light with this genre and stick to Miss Peregrine for now 🙂
of these, ive only read The Dead House but I really enjoyed it! Dawn is so lovely too!! 🙂
Same. I heard there was a sequel but I’m not 100% on that
