Some people like scary movies, but we prefer spooky books. Here are FYI Denton’s suggestions for this Halloween.
Curl up with a bag of giant bag M&Ms and one or more of these books:
“Doll” by Miracle Austin
“Sinfonia” by David W. Landrum
The vampire chronicle brings readers into the world of Nelleke Reitsma, a woman who must navigate her life as a new vampire in 17th-century England. With an aptitude for playing the lute, she uses her musical abilities to rub elbows with the likes of Queen Elizabeth and William Shakespeare, but she then must embark on a mission to save her vampire coven from a dangerous talisman and the villains who control it.
“Redcap” by Larry Yoakum III
A man comes home for a family death and is forced to stay with his extremist religious parents. Soon memories began to resurface, and he recalls a horrid little monster that has been tormenting him since his youth. The help of a mysterious private detective seems an unwanted thing at first, but once he comes face to face with the creature straight out of folklore, his new friend is his only real chance at surviving.
“Cemetery Tours” by Jacqueline E. Smith
The book follows the story of Michael Sinclair, a young man who can see and communicate with the dead. While many may consider this gift a blessing, as far as Michael is concerned it has only ever been a curse. That’s until he meets Kate Avery, who has just moved in next door with her brother, Gavin. Kate and Gavin are haunted, and not by a dearly departed loved one; the spirit is aggressive, menacing and harboring a dark resentment toward Gavin.
