So, you all have probably seen a lot of book lists for Halloween. Most of them have probably included the following: Dracula, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, Edgar Allen Poe etc. While those lists are right, these books are great for Halloween, maybe you're looking for a bit of a twist on them. So here are some retellings/Reimaginings of creepy classics of yore.
Love Edgar Allen Poe? Love paranormal romance? Then you will love this trilogy that does so many great twists from the world of Edgar Allen Poe.
This reimagining takes a simple premise: what if the doctor from the Island of Dr. Moreau had a daughter and gives it a great spin. It doesn't just stop at Dr. Moreau either, it deftly weaves together plots from Jekyll and Hyde as well as Frankenstein.
These are a great pair of books examining Victor Frankenstein's youth. Sometimes these prequels like to ignore canon, but this one does not and it's all the better for it.
Haven't yet read this one myself, but apparently it's a modern take on Dracula.
This is a new release from last month that is based on Frankenstein.
Dystopian series that was inspired by one of Poe's lesser known but no less creepy works.
YA retelling of Jekyll and Hyde if they were actually two people and in love.
YA retelling of Edgar Allen Poe's poem Annabel Lee
A biography of sorts of the life of Dracula.
Series about Dracula's ancestors and their adventures/mishaps/etc.
