This Week’s Question

Have you ever read a book on Halloween? If so, what was the title?

Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.

I’m always reading, so more than likely I have read a book on Halloween! Asking me to remember specific books, however… That’s why we go to Goodreads to check!

Apparently in 2019, I was reading The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup. Which, honestly, is a great book to read on Halloween! It’s a thriller that definitely had some creepy scenes. I enjoyed this one quite a lot. It read like a TV show, which makes sense as he author has previously written screenplays. And now this is a TV show on Netflix! I kind of want to give it a watch and see if it translates to the screen as well as I thought it would. Now would be the perfect time of year for it, too!

This story follows two detectives on the trail of a murderer who has a calling card: a small chestnut man left at each crime scene. There is another layer of mystery added when the fingerprint of a missing, presumed dead, young girl is found on one of these chestnut men. It’s a thrilling read that isn’t necessarily fast-paced, but keeps you in it’s grips from page one til the end. You can read my full review here.

Do you like to read on Halloween? What was the last book you read around this time? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
