Spooky Season: Hauntingly Good Reads

Spooky Season: Hauntingly Good Reads

October 21, 2021

Horror fiction has the power to ignite the imagination in terrifying and amazing ways. The desire to experience intense emotions and face our inner fears is what drives many readers to the genre. There’s something so satisfying about a strong resolution after an entire novel’s worth of nail-biting fright! But horror isn’t the only genre where you can find those spine-tingling reads. Psychological suspense hits a lot of those same marks.  

If you’re looking for some great reads for spooky season, check out my 10 picks for a hauntingly good time!
