Top Ten Tuesday – Ominous October 2016 Plans

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

A few years ago, I started doing a feature on the blog called Ominous October. Basically it consists of reading nothing but horror books the entire month of October and it’s something I look forward to every year now. I’ll read some modern horror but mostly I’ve been trying to chip away at all the classic horror novels that are the inspiration for all that came after. I’m really looking forward to my picks this year and hope I’m able to get to the majority of them and maybe a few more if I really stay on top of it.

  1. I love your TBR. I did a similar theme and only mentioned books I wanted to read for Halloween. I keep meaning to look for The Death House and The Women in the Walls comes out today so maybe I will grab it for my Kindle. Hope you love all of these. I remember reading Hell House quite some time ago and really enjoyed it.

  2. I always love reading scary books this time of year. I am a bit sad that I am not doing Wicked this year, but I just wasn’t up for it. I am still reading some good ones though. I just read The Family Plot by Cherie Priest. It was pretty darn good.

  3. The only one of these that I have read is Stephen Kings Misery and it was very creepy. The way he writes his characters is superb and makes it easy for you to picture what’s going on which is another reason it is so creepy. I hope you enjoy all of your scary reads.
