12 Books for Spooky Season

Move over film, literature is making a comeback! Ok it never really left but sometimes we forget the pleasure of curling up with a spooky book that has us gripping at the edge of our seats or too intense we need to throw it in the freezer, i.e. Joey Tribbiani. (Although Stephen King didn’t make the list, we can all agree all his books are pretty much amazing and might have taken up the entire list!) We have scoured the classics, and some newcomers, of the literature world to bring the best books for October, or really any other time of the year, for you to read.
