#5OnMyTBR – Horror

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!

Hello, reader!

Welcome to another week and another 5 On My TBR! And I’m super excited for this one because the theme is horror 👻 I love horror movies, but I’m still dipping my toes into reading horror novels. Not because I don’t like them! Just because I usually push them to the side for my tried and true SFF books, lol. But I love a scary story and so I have quite a few horror books on my TBR that I hope will give me a spine-tingling good time.

Of course, that means it took me awhile to pick just five to feature. I’m happy with the ones I chose, though, because they are all books that are high on my list! Let’s jump in the post.

#1. The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

Ever since I read Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones, I’ve wanted to give another one of his books a try. I really got on well with his writing and his take on werewolves! Now I want to sink into one of his horror novels that taps into some dark places. I’ve heard so many good things about this one, as well! Fingers crossed that I have as good a time with this as I did with Mongrels.

#2. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

I had to include a classic of the genre! I’ve been wanting to read The Haunting of Hill House since I saw the 1999 movie adaptation. Which I loved even though it was terrible 😂 I have a soft spot for bad horror movies, okay? I’ve been curious about reading the source material for a minute and that curiosity ramped up when the Netflix series came out. I’m hoping to give this one a go soon because winter always seems like a good time to curl up with a scary story.
