What to Read Next: Creepy Classics

Since the Halloween season is upon us you may or may not have been reading those time honored Creepy Classics of Frankenstein, Dracula, or Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Now you want some more but maybe a little less classics, more modern. Here are some options for you:

1) Stephan King-Looking for more creepy? Check out this author like now.

2) This Dark Endeavor duet by Kenneth Oppel-Looking for some books on Frankenstein himself? I highly suggest these which are a fantastic character study of a well-known character and how he came to be in the book of Frankenstein.

3) The Madman's Daughter Trilogy by Megan Shephard-Good series involving the daughter of the Doctor Moreau, the doctor in the Island of Doctor Moreau (the author of Jekyll and Hyde, a good creepy classic). The third book comes out in January.

4) The Nevermore Trilogy by Kelly Creagh
Awesome paranormal trilogy that deeply involves Edgar Allen Poe (he of the fabulously creepy short stories/poems) in a clever way. Sadly book 3 doesn't come out till summer of next year. Hopefully. We were actually supposed to get it this year but it got pushed back. ;frowns;

5) Stoker and Holmes series by Colleen Gleason
Fun Steampunk mystery series featuring the descendant of Bram Stoker (whose family all hunt vampires) and the niece of Sherlock Holmes. You know you want to read it.
