20 Awesome Horror Reads for October


OCTOBER IS ONLY A MONTH AWAY! If you are like us, and just love everything Halloween and horror, October is the best month of the year. Any other time, people look at us funny for spending our waking hours with our noses in a good scary book or watching a classic horror movie, but not in October! For those of you who want to join us in our foray into the creepy, we've compiled a reading list of twenty completely awesome horror novels to enjoy. If you're not too sure how much is too scary for you, and how much of the blood and guts you're comfortable with, we've included a handy "Scare Factor" meter from 1 to 5, the lowest being accessible for everybody, and the highest only for seasoned horror vets. Hold your applause until the end!
