Short Books to Read at Halloween
It’s spooky season and that means it’s time for some spooktacular reads. However, if you’re time-poor like me, here are some short books to read at Halloween.
At only 56 pages long, this short story is the perfect Halloween read for people looking for a quick read.
Another short story, with a creepy edge rather than ‘scary’. If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games you’ll enjoy this ‘make-you-think’ short story from the queen of creepy fiction.
This is Oscar Wilde’s only completed novel and it’s a masterpiece about vanity, narcissism, and sexuality. It’s 252 pages and a fast-paced read. Very easy to finish within a couple of sittings, so good for a commute.
This is Agatha Christie’s most famous crime novel, and it’s a standalone of epic proportions. The many adaptations of it are excellent, but nothing beats the book. It’s incredibly fast-paced and rich with clever details. It always leaves you guessing. Until the very end.
The first in the series is less than 300 pages and a fun ride. Even if you disagree with the author’s views, as I do, it’s still a solid read for anyone no matter their age. You’ve got to love the troll scene at Halloween in the first book.
You don’t have to read all of these tales to enjoy them this Halloween. Instead, dip in and out of the collection for an enjoyable reading experience. A lot of them are a lot darker than most people realise.
And there have it. A list of short books to read at Halloween. Whats books will you be reading this spooky season? Let me know in the comments below.
