Take a Look at These Scary Halloween Books
My friends and I have tried may various ways to fete Halloween. Twenty years ago, we would joyfully don our Halloween costumes. Wearing the Halloween costumes was such a wonderful experience. We would of course consume our favorite Halloween foods and drinks, but what we were most eager to do is to take out the books that we used to call Halloween books. We took turns reading to the others just to scare them or at least give them the willies.
Our favorite collection of Halloween books is undoubtedly represented by Edgar Allen Poes books. These Halloween books will certainly have the same effect now, as they did before evn though it's years later.
I loved to read my favorite short stories - The Fall of the House of Usher and The Masque of the Red Death. The first one was about a haunted house while the second was about a Halloween party in a house where one imagines and one is trapped, with other people.
If you do not prefer to read Halloween books but you want something scarier and terrifying like the occult genre, a metaphysical, Para psychological, real people haunted by real ghosts and others like these, it is better to take true scary stories. I will recommend you the following:
Amityville Horror written by Jay Anson this book is really quite creepy. The book is based on true events. It has a photo of the real house on its cover. The windows and the doors make the house look alive. They are placed in a way that gives the illusion of a face. The book tells the story of a man who killed his family and of the new family who moved in and became possessed by the ghosts of the former house inhabitants. This is the first Halloween book that I remember when hear the words Halloween books.
The Shining written by Steven King most of Steven King books are good enough to be Halloween books but this one is so realistic that it makes you terrified. This Halloween book tells the story of a writer who is staying in a locked hotel with no electricity in New England full of ghosts, while outside there is a snowstorm.
The Mephisto Waltz by Fred Mustard Steward this one is a very good Halloween book. This Halloween book tells the story of a woman who is trying to get out but the guard dogs, Doberman Pinschers, are tracking her in a terrifying manner, whenever she tries to get out.
I do not approve these Halloween books to be read to children. There are just my favorite Halloween books for adults. Halloween books like The Happy Pumpkins will not make me tremble of fear for sure!
