Horror Haunts: General (Light) Horror to Read

Hello friends,
I am back with another horror haunts installment. This is for all you readers out there who don’t really like the gory, scary, keep you up at night kind of horror. Sometimes you just want something a little weird and creepy, rather than something truly terrifying. Here are a few books that I want to read that don’t seem very scary.

Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw

Greta Helsing inhartied her familys specific and peculiar medical practices. In her lab she treats banshees for vocal strain, mummies for entropy, and she has been groomed for this job since childhood. She has accepted this simple life, until a group of murderous monks emerges, killing live and undead londoners alike.

If a doctor for the undead didn’t sound good from the beginning, stopping murderous monks sounds pretty darn good.

The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

On Halloween night a group of boys run to meet their friend at the haunted mansion outside of town. Instead the meet Mr. Moundshroud, who must lead them on a journey to find their friend when he is swept away by a dark something. They travel through time and space to find their friend and the meaning of Halloween.

Welcome To Nightvale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

From the creators of the podcast by the same name, Welcome to Nightvale: A Novel follows a nineteen-year-old pawn shop owner who is given a piece of paper with a strange mark on it by a mysterious man. Jackie, the pawn shop owner, is determined to discover the truth of the mysterious man and the piece of paper, both of which unsettle her.

The Babysitters Coven by Kate Williams

Esme Pearl is in a babysitter club, and destruction seems to follow her everywhere. Cassandra Heaven enters the picture, she is rebellious, hot, and dresses like she doesn’t care, but she is will to take on the worst jobs to join the babysitters club. Cassandra’s mother left her a note that read “Find the babysitters. Love, mom.” Soon, the girls will find out that they have more in common than they think.

All I can say is teen girls discovering they have magic powers sounds like the life I wish I had.

Are there any spooky books you are excited to read?

Hauntingly,
Alex
