So for Halloween, would the perfect book be an old classic like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein that even now can you scare you senseless, or would it be a contemporary horror by say Stephen King?
One of the books I remember reading when I was young was the Point Horror teen series, in particular Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersley Cusick. I just love reading about big old houses that creak and groan and have secret passages and hidden rooms.
It’s something about the mystery that takes me straight back to my childhood, reading Enid Blyton’s Five Get into Trouble. If I could read Nancy Drew and the Famous Five now, without feeling like a very old child, then I would be extremely happy!
But does a good Halloween book even have to be a horror? Would a spooky paranormal fit the bill better? Something with ghosts and spirits and a bit of mystery like Charlaine Harris’ Grave Sight. Or perhaps something with zombies or vampires?
So I ask, what would be your perfect Halloween read?
