These were my spooky book recommendations for Halloween on the The Feeder Live!
I've included a mix of spooky genres—suspense, gore, mystery, murder, horror—enjoy at your own risk.
IT, by Stephen King is the scariest book I’ve ever read. But, really a masterpiece by the master of horror and suspense.
The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix. Steel Magnolias meets Dracula. A southern book club has to take matters into their own hands to fight the vampire next door. Gory, hilarious and totally original.
Social Creature, Tara Isabella Burton. Single White Female meets Gossip Girl. Lavinia takes Lauren under her very privileged wing. When she tires of Lauren, how far will Lauren go to stay in her world? Spoiler alert: pretty far.
Pretty as a Picture, Elizabeth Little. I love a book with a quirky heroine and Marissa is just that. A talented film editor, she is drawn into a murder and becomes a target while working for a mysterious director on an isolated shoot. Funny, with a great story and characters.
Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann. A fascinating non-fiction account of the systematic murder of members of the Osage Nation in the 1920s. They were the wealthiest group of people per capita in the world and were murdered for their land rights. Also discusses the inception of the FBI, which came in to try to help solve the case.
Bonus: The Hot Zone, Richard Preston. Published 30 years ago, this true account of the Ebola virus is scarier than any fiction book I’ve read.
