5OnMyTBR: Halloween Freebie

Thanks to @LocalBeeHuntersNook for #5OnMyTBR – a weekly bookish meme where we share 5 books on our TBR list from prompts (which you can find here).  The prompt this week is Halloween freebie!


Since today’s 5OnMyTBR is a freebie, I’ve decided to choose 5 books perfect for Halloween that I haven’t got around to yet: these are all horrors with various degrees of spookiness!

The Girl from the Well


✿ young adult, paranormal horror

✿ 267 pages

✿ published 2014

The Girl from the Well is a ghost story based on Japanese legends. It’s been described as creepy so it sounds like a good way to get into horror. Also I’ve heard great things about Rin Chupeco’s works (I still need to get to The Bone Witch series!)

The Library at Mount Char


✿ fantasy, horror

✿ 388 pages

✿ published 2016

I’ve seen a few booktubers talk about The Library at Mount Char. I don’t understand the synopsis and I’m prepared to be confused and scared and shocked at whatever this book is!

My Best Friend’s Exorcism

41015038. sy475

✿ young adult, supernatural horror

✿ 337 pages

✿ published 2016

My Best Friend’s Exorcism has an 80s feel (just look at that cover) and I’m excited to see what happens, because it sounds spooky but not that scary? We’ll see!

✿ horror, sci-fi

✿ 288 pages

✿ published 2020

Lakewood really sounds horrific. It “takes an unflinching look at the moral dilemmas many working-class families face, and the horror that has been forced on black bodies in the name of science.” I’ve heard a lot of great things about it since it’s come out, too.



✿ horror, thriller

✿ 306 pages

✿ published 2011

Kin is a gory slasher with lots of different storylines and characters, in the aftermath of tragedy. There’s definitely mixed opinions about this one, but I still want to try it out. Apparently it’s not for the faint-hearted!

Thanks for reading! Do you like horror?
