4 Haunted House Books You Should NOT Read When You’re Home Alone

Haunted #WickedGoodReads

Books that feature haunted houses really creep me out – and I love ’em!!! What are some of your favorites? Below you’ll find 4 of my recommendations – 4 totally awesome, #WickedGoodReads.

77 Shadow Street, Dean Koontz

The Pendleton, which is at 77 Shadow Street, is one apartment building I’m glad I don’t live in! Every 38 years, some serious shit goes down and people start dying in gruesome ways.

The Diviners, Libba Bray

There’s a house on the Upper East side of Manhattan with some seriously bad juju. Naughty John used to live there many years ago, and he found his way back to life. This house in NOT a place you want to find yourself in – at any time!

The Shining, Stephen King

The Overlook Hotel in Colorado (US) is a bad bad place. I’m all for isolation, but being cut off from the rest of civilization for months at a time because of Winter is quite the recipe for disaster. Definitely a good, creepy book to read – and the hotel that inspired the book is open for tours – anybody else think that’s oh so wrong?!

The Haunting of Hill House, Shirley Jackson

A very haunting, atmospheric novel about 4 people who are staying at the notoriously “unfriendly” Hill House. It was like watching a tragic accident unfolding.

What books have you read that featured a haunted house? Would you buy a house that was rumored to be haunted?
