As I don’t watch a lot of movies, I’ve decided to change up the theme this week a bit, instead using TV shows.
1. Anna Dressed in Blood Kendare Blake.
This book was creepy, creepy, creepy! Definitely a recommended read for fans of Supernatural, though at times I thought that it was a little too similar, you know? But if you’re a fan of ghosts/horror, you’ll probably like this.
2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
This is a book that seems to have reviewers divided — but there’s no denying the creep factor that Ransom Riggs wrote so beautifully into his novel; and also, the pictures are cool. Who doesn’t like pictures in books? ALSO? Time travel!
3. Hemlock Grove.
Hemlock Grove is a pretty good show. I’ve only watched the first seven episodes of the first season (damn you, exams!) but if you don’t mind a little bit of gore and sex, this is awesome. Plus rather creepy, too — perfect for Halloween. I also think it had one of the best werewolf transformations I’ve seen on television.
4. Carrie by Stephen King.
I didn’t love this week (not really a fan of Stephen King — I know, shocking), but man, I think it would be the perfect read for Halloween!
Okay, do I really need to say anything here!? Apart from I LOVE THIS SHOW.
6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.
So, honestly, I wasn’t that much of a fan of the first novel (the second one was much better I thought) but daaaaaammn. There were definitely some creepy scences!
7. The Vampire Diaries / The Originals.
Oookay, so I don’t actually watch this show anymore (I do want to catch up on it, though!) but ohhhhh, Damon. <3 THOSE EYES. AMAZING. Ahem. Anyway, where was I? This is about vampires, but not the Twilight kind (well, some are, but they don’t sparkle) and it’s quite a bloody show and times. I binge-watched the first few seasons when I first started watching it. The Originals is a spin off series, but is pretty good.
8. Dangerous Girls by Abgial Haas.
HUMANS ARE DISTURBING CREATURES. That is all.
9. Teen Wolf.
It took me a long time to warm up to this show. If you take away the not so great script-writing, the cheesy dialogue and romance, there’s actually a pretty good story underneath. If you haven’t seen this before, I should probably point out this: It’s not just about wolves. There’s a lot of different mythology taken from other cultures — which is awesome. It’s also hilarious, too.
10. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.
Zombies, people, zombies! You can’t get more Halloween-ish than that, can you!?
