This has been a fairly slow reading year for me with anxiety, a full time job, a social life and my Netflix addiction. But I’m pumped to read the following books to see in the cold cosy nights.
- The Birds by Daphne du Maurier
I read this short story yesterday to get me in spooky mood. The book is set in remote farmlands and the birds turn on humans. It’s definitely a haunting read with an ending that leaves you on edge
2. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
So this book is not really fitting the theme for scary books, despite the terrifyingly rich family of Nick Young. I watched the movie when it came out last year and have just started the book. The story follows Rachel an American/Chinese woman as she navigates her boyfriends crazy rich family in Singapore.
3.The Chronicles of Narnia
I embarrassingly don’t remember if I read these as a kid or not. However, I do remember the films and the amazing villain the White Witch. This is definitely going to get me the autumn spirit.
4. Pans Labyrinth
My absolute favourite film of all time made into a book!! Of course this is on my reading list for this month, this is an absolute classic fantasy horror from the ridiculously talented Guillermo Del Toro. I cannot wait to read how the terrifying pale man is portrayed in this book!
Eragon is another childhood classic that I seemed to have missed because I was reading old lady books. I’ve heard really mixed reviews about this one but after recently enjoying another dragon based novel “Seraphina” I’m optimistic.
What are you reading this Halloween month?
