I am the kind of young adult who loves nights in! I’d much prefer to be in my baggy clothes, belly free to wobble where it likes, hair up in a messy bun and a book in hand or a horror film at the ready! During Autumn I feel it is more likely to be the season of spending more nights at home due to the temperature dropping and it being too cold to stand outside with heels on half tipsy hehe (not that I don’t at times enjoy that).
Here is my blog post about my go to horror/ thriller books this Autumn!
Goosebumps - R.L. Stine
I read these four books in two days! They are spooky, fun, interesting and an easy read. I’m never disappointed by R.L. Stine’s work and look forward to starting book after book!
‘Scream School’ is an awesome read about a world famous horror directors son who is trying to prove to his dad that he isn’t scared of the horror films he directs! There are twists and turns and it keeps you hooked right until the end. Want to know if Jake proves himself to his father? Take the next step and go read this one!
‘Revenge R Us’ is a constant high throughout the book. It is on edge, creepy and kept me full of adrenalin. My mind was boggled! I was constantly questioning how I felt and who I sympathised with. It is about an adolescent girl who is constantly bullied by her big brother. As anyone else would, she seeks constant revenge. To find out if she succeeds, you’ll have to give it a read! hehe
‘The Twisted Tale of Tiki Island’ is an interesting read for sure! It most certainly lives up to it’s ‘twisted’ title. This read is a unique experience for everyone reading as it allows the fate of your character and the overall outcome to be placed in your hands. It puts you in the drivers seat and gets you thinking quickly to save yourself and friend(s). My first experience was a quick one and I managed to get to the end alive and safe with my friend in the book hehe! What will your ending be?
‘Brain Juice’ is an awesome tale of brother and sister who will go to any lengths to improve their school grades. They always feel stupid and get bullied from ‘smarter’ classmates. Just how far will they go to be clever? Will they have to pay a price? You can find out!
Talking with female serial killers - Christopher Berry-Dee
This gem has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while now just waiting for me to dive in. I thought what better time than Halloween and Autumn to take the leap into this chilling real life wonder.
Being a fan of criminal psychology and serial killers, I love to find out the stories behind our most notorious criminals. More so rare are female criminals, especially when it comes to the topic of serial killers, so this book makes me super excited to begin!
Criminologist Christopher Berry-Dee is a wonderful, intelligent being and I was so happy to see that he released this book to the world. Through his eyes we speak to the most evil women in the world and they happen to be serial killers.
If you’re into your real life horror; this book is for you. Open up the first page and get inside the mind of Christopher Berry-Dee and come face to face with these evil females of the world.
Skulduggery Pleasant - Derek Landy
This book started a wonderful journey of exploration and the love of books for me. It is the kind of book you can get lost in and almost live it through your own eyes. You follow a unique girl who has always felt different, who finds her calling throughout her uncles passing. This book is followed by a huge series and one after the other they are fantastic and adventurous reads!
I have been fortunate enough to meet Derek Landy and I have three signed books by him. He’s just as awesome as the characters in his books and I am so glad I live in a world where that man exists!
If you’re looking for an energetic, fun and edgy read, this one is fantastic and will open up a world of curiosity and awesomeness!
Tobin's spirit guide
Tobin’s spirit guide is the book featured in one of my favourite film series….(drum roll) GHOSTBUSTERS!!
I bought this book for my boyfriend as he is a ghostbusters fanatic and we both love collectables and replicas from movies.
This book is full of awesome ghost busters universe spirits, demons and gods. I guess this is like the ghost wikipedia hehe!
John Tobin’s original book was huge so ghostbusters Egon and Ray came together to create a smaller more practical version to help with identifying more common phenomena.
Absolute legends. When there’s something strange in the neighbourhood, go buy this book!
Necronomicon - H.P. Lovecraft
This H.P. Lovecraft collection of best weird tales is a work of pure art!
Necronomicon features truly twisted and dark tales in true Lovecraft style.
This one is a difficult read. It is long, small text and is written in such a unique way that goes hand in hand with the dark and mysterious content.
This book is the perfect go to Halloween read – It is perfect for those nights where you fancy a chilling tale to accompany the dark and cloudy skies and a warm drink. Get cosy and give this book a go, you never know what you might find and discover. There truly is a whole world waiting for you within this book. Lovecraft will not disappoint.
My week has looked like this image above hehe! I have been reading spooky books, writing blog posts and drinking green tea. I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has been so fitting to the month and season and I can’t wait to read more this year. These books have really opened my mind and I am so inspired and uplifted by these authors.
I recommend picking up that book you’ve been storing for a while and just diving in, even if it’s a few pages a day, it’s so worth it!
