As you can see from the photo above some of the books from my September TBR have been carried over to my October TBR…. I don’t have a super good explanation for this other then I have been having a bit of a struggle getting through Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Right now my plan is to read Pet Sematary after I finish Frankenstein and after the any of the other I get through is a bonus. So here is a bit of why I chose these books for this months TBR.
Dracula by Bram Stoker
I think everyone who has watched or read a book about vampires they know that Dracula is the classic vampire book. I don’t feel like I need to explain it. Oddly enough as much as I love Halloween and have read a lot of vampire books I never did read Dracula. Not even for my Honors English 11 or 12 (same thing as AP English).
Into A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
So what I know about this book is very little but a few months ago it was all over Booktube and people either loved it or hate it. What I do know is that its about a girl named Nora who is invited on a girls weekend and decides to go and things don’t go as planned.
The Giant Book of Ghost Stories by Henry James and others
This is a collection of ghost stories. Halloween and ghost stories also go hand in hand.
Pet Sematary by Stephan King
Stephan King is the king of horror/ thriller books. It has been about eight years since I last read one of his books which is sad because the book I read (The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon) was really good and Stephan King is also one of my Grandpa’s favorite authors, as in he has read and owns all of his books even the ones written under his pen name Richard Bachman. Plus I think Stephan King and Halloween are perfect together. I know people are going to ask why I’m not reading It since there is the remake of the mini series that’s is in theaters. Well to but it simply its huge, almost 1200 pages for the editions I’ve found, and I’m already planning to read Les Miserable by Victor Hugo and Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy this winter. Of course it would be great to read three huge books this year but with all the books I have on my TBR its not likely, I might not even read the other two before the new year. Also the movie Pet Sematary is absolutely terrifying. Yes its old and that makes it kind of odd at moments but serious go watch it and tell me you not a little scared. Anyways Pet Sematary is about the Creeds who move into an idyllic home in rural Maine. They are the American ideal family: mother, father, daughter, son, and pet cat. Things seem almost too good to be true for the family and that’s because it is.
