    Thanks for the recommendations. They all sound worth a look for sure. 🙂

  2. Man, I should have known better than to look at your list! I added 5 books to my TBR/wishlist and I already had 3 from the list on it. Just joking. Thanks for the recommendations. It’s not easy finding bloggers that mention horror books on a regular basis!

  3. Donna says:

    Mirror Image and A Shadow on The Wall sound good. Terrifying but good.

  4. I don’t read horror at all but you have some great ones in your list. I can feel the scariness just looking at the covers.

  5. tpolen says:

    So many of these I want to read!!!! Just got an ARC of Dead Souls – loved Poe by this author.

  6. Ashley says:

    Great list! These all look and sound really interesting. I’ll have to add some to my TBR!

  7. Chesca says:

    Your Brother’s Blood looks pretty awesome. A zombie story from the POV of a zombie? Like, what the heck could be going in their minds?

    And definitely checking out Robert Eickman. I have no idea who the guy is too hahaha

  8. Yay! I’m interested in a few of these, thank you for the heads up!

  9. I’m so thankful for you and your blog. You always have the best horror recommendations!

  10. Cassie-la says:

    Oooh, I love the idea behind Only the Dead Know Burbank!

  11. I love haunted houses stories, even if they keep me from sleeping at times, hahaha. Great recommendations thank you 🙂

  12. From the POV of the zombie, huh? Intriguing…

  13. I’ve run into occasional Aickman tales in anthologies, and they’ve usually been good. I’ve long been interested in tracking more of his stuff down. Seems I’ll have the chance!

  14. Oooh, Your Brother’s Blood by David Towsey sounds like it could be really interesting! I’m not a big zombie person but I love stories told from perspectives they’re not usually told from, and you’re right that there’s very few told from the zombie’s POV. 🙂

  15. Anna says:

    Wow, all these books look really cool. I can’t wait to read them! 😀

  16. Wow! Hats off to you for being able to pick so many horror books for your highly anticipated list! 🙂 I am one of those few that have absolutely no guts to read a horror novel, and even if I did, I’d pity my husband for having to deal with my fear 🙂
    That said, I just might be able to muster up enough courage for The Night Parade..

  17. I wouldn’t say I was a huge horror book fan, but some of these sound really quite interesting. I love the sound of Only the Dead Know Burbank because I’m also really interested in the whole golden age of Hollywood so it may be the perfect one to start to see if I enjoy this genre.
    Also you managed to pick some good books for this week despite it being difficult for you! 😀
