I’m back with some more horror books I want to read! Tell me if you’ve read any of these!
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
This bad boy is one of those books that I keep hearing about but also feel like I know nothing about. It’s written in weird ways. Little letters, codes that need to be decoded, pages written upside down, pages you need to read in the mirror, and so on. It’s basically about a family that moves into a house that’s bigger on the inside. It’s said to be one of the scariest books people have read.
Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
A missing God.
A library with the secrets to the universe.
A woman too busy to notice her heart slipping away.
Do you need to know anything else about this? I mean… it’s like perfect. A woman who used to be normal, before her parents died and she was taken in by a man they call Father. Her and her adoptive siblings were raised by acient customs, learning from the books in his library secrets of the universe, and wondering if their strict tutor might be a God. Now Father is missing and the Library is unguarded. This sounds confusing and weird and creepy and I’m here for it.
Black Monday Murders by Jonathan Hickman
A world where all the traditional occult schools are clandestine banking cartels that control society. A secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep all of us in our proper place. Does this not sound like the best graphic novel in existence?
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
A boy who is the assistant to a man that studies monster. When a grave robber comes calling with a gruesome find, he brings with him the most deadly case yet. This is the most vague description but it sounds like it will be mysterious and creepy and just… monsters!
The Elementals by Michael McDowell
Three Victorian house, two still used, one filling with sand, is empty except for a horror that is shaping nightmares of the nothingness in the air. Again, another vague summary, but I think it says enough. I just want to know what the scary thing in the sand house is! I want to know how it tears the characters apart!
Have I peaked your interest with any of these books?
