Scary Reading for October

by Cheri

Here is the gigantic list of creepy books I’d like to read during the month of October! The order is my own preference, so I know it doesn't make sense. Most here could be classified as horror but some are thriller/psychological thriller mysteries.This will probably take more like 2 years, but let's see how far I get!

[Editor: We'll update Cheri's progress as she completes each book, so check back all month!]
