Haunted #Horror Books - #Zombies #Monsters & More!

It's March... already? Time got away from me, so I'm catching up here with some literary gold! (art:

I've really been drawn to Haunted house books lately... Here are some that sound good, plus some other spooky, eerie reads and a bunch of zombie books!

Haunted Houses


The Haunting of Hill House, Shirley Jackson - The classic haunted house story! Published in 1959, four seekers come to Hill House. At first they experience what seems like unexplained phenomena, but the house is gathering its powers - and soon will claim one of them as its own.

The House by the Cemetery, John Everson - Rumor has it that the abandoned house by the cemetery is haunted by the ghost of a witch. But rumors won’t stop carpenter Mike Kostner from rehabbing the place as a haunted house attraction. Soon he’ll learn that fresh wood and nails can’t keep decades of rumors down. There are noises in the walls, and fresh blood on the floor: secrets that would be better not to discover. And behind the rumors is a real ghost who will do whatever it takes to ensure the house reopens. She needs people to fill her house on Halloween. There’s a dark, horrible ritual to fulfill. Because while the witch may have been dead... she doesn’t intend to stay that way

This House is Haunted, John Boyne - A governess goes to a new position in Norfolk in 1867 and finds two children with no adult present. She soon finds herself followed by a malevolent prescence. For her and the children to survive, she must uncover the house's long-buried secrets.

BONUS! Check out some great Apocalyptic Books. Check out a fantastic group of Apocalyptic books highlighted here all March! See website.

What I'm Reading:


Plague - Apocalypse

Infected, Scott Sigler - I'm reading this right now...  A mysterious disease is turning people across America into crazed murderers... (Yikes! I'm almost finished. Crazy, creepy, eerie, skin-crawling!!)

Of Blood and Bone, (Chronicles of the One book 2) Nora Roberts -  The city she lived in is in ruins since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Now those like Fallon, who have gifts, are hunted. The time is coming when her gifts can no longer be hidden.  (I'll be starting this shortly. I read book one (last year?) It's been awhile, so I forgot the story. I was intrigued enough to look for book two, so we'll see.)


Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter,  C.A. Verstraete - What really happened when Lizzie Borden supposedly picked up an axe and killed her father and stepmother in August, 1892? What if she had a reason to kill? 

Zombie Games (Uncut Boxed Set), Kristen Middleton - This YA story is a lighthearted adventure filled with zombies, butt-kicking teenaged girls, a man obsessed with video games, an annoying but totally HOT karate instructor, and humor when needed. 17 & up. 
Includes - Origins, Running Wild, Dead Endz, Road Kill, End Zone. Plus: Paxton Vs. The Undead.

Free at time of listing:

Broken World, A Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Novel, Kate L. Mary - Follow a group of survivors on a journey that spans eleven books and twenty years as they search for safety in a world overrun by the dead...

Contamination: Zombies are Human book 1, Jamie Thornton -  A plague ended the world. A drop of blood can change you. Sometimes it fills you with rage. Sometimes it does something else. 

Since the Sirens (Sirens of the Zombie Apocalypse, book 1), E.E. Isherwood - The sirens are bringing in the zombies. Liam's distraction today is called "survival."

The War on Horror: Tales from a Post-Zombie Society,  Nathan Allen -  What happens when the zombie apocalypse becomes an aberration? Life is nearly back to normal, zombies are quarantined, then the undead control agency is going bankrupt. A lucrative opportunity... sleazy politicians and more...
