Halloween Month: What I’m Reading

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.

  1. 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!

5. Eragon


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.

  1. I would definitely argue that Crazy Rich Asians fits into the scary theme of October considering how terrifying Nick’s family is. Also I’m interested to see what you think about the book version of Pan’s Labyrinth. I LOVE the movie, so if the book is good I’d definitely get it.

  2. You have some great reads coming up!! I also can’t always keep straight which books from my childhood I read or didn’t read, or whether I liked or didn’t like them. So my opinion: If it’s a “classic”?Probably worth a re-read as an adult!

  3. Oooh, I’ve been really wanting to reread Narnia lately too. πŸ™‚ I’m PRETTY sure I skipped reading The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian because I only watched the movies? I think? I don’t really remember either. XD But I read all the other ones. Except when I was 8 my babysitter INSISTED on reading it to me. Despite my being fully capable of reading it by myself smh. XD But I’m sure I actually read all the other books. πŸ˜›
