Halloweeny TBR & TBW

Halloween Wallpaper 02 - www.HopIMG.com

It’s October!  You know what that means!  It’s almost time for Halloween.  To get in the mood, I have prepared my entire month of reading and watching movies around Halloweeny type things.  I’ve tried to include a little bit of everything: witches, paranormal, vampires, zombies and slashers.  Although I didn’t include any paranormal in my movie list, I have plenty for backup if I run out of movies to watch.


My TBW includes:

  • Hocus Pocus (witches)
  • The Craft (witches)
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer (slasher)
  • I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (slasher)
  • The Crazies (zombies)
  • Scream 1-4 (slasher)
  • World War Z (zombies)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (slasher)

UPDATE: Brandie reminded me that I completely forgot one of my all-time favorite movies!  PRACTICAL MAGIC!  I am officially adding it to my list of movies to watch!


My TBR includes:

  • The Witching Hour by Anne Rice (witches)
  • I Am Legend by Richard Matheson (zombies)
  • Salem’s Lot by Stephen King (vampires)
  • The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich (paranormal)

The Witching Hour is over 1000 pages so I have only selected 4 books for my set TBR.  And for backup books in case I finish all 4 books, I have selected a few alternates.


  • Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness (vampires and witches)
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker (vampires)
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (monsters)

And just in time, I got my awesome Halloween bookmark pre-orders from Happy Hello Art!


I am so excited to start off my October with some creepy reads!  I am going to start with a re-read of The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich so I can finally read it through with the finalized pages.

HAPPY OCTOBER!  Are you reading any creeptastic reads this month?

  1. Love it!! I love those bookmarks – I wanted to order them. I haven’t seen Hocus Pocus in years, I need to rewatch it. Scream is probably my second favorite scary movie ever. Great selection of movies! I also love Practical Magic.

    I hope you enjoy all of your scary books!

  2. I love the way you did your pictures! 🙂 I thought about taking pictures of my books, but some of them are e-books, so I decided not to use my own pictures.

    Great movie choices! I haven’t seen the Scream movies in such a long time! I can’t wait for Hocus Pocus. Your TBR also looks awesome! I can’t wait to read The Dead House, it looks like it’s going to be a great read!

    I really hope my Happy Hello Art bookmarks come in! I got a few Halloween ones from Craftedvan too.

    • Thanks 🙂 I love the Scream movies. Some of my favorite “scary” movies. I love the Happy Hello Art bookmarks. I need to check out Craftedvan too but then again, I already have sooooo many from HHA lol.

    • I have a huge collection of Happy Hello bookmarks lol. I can’t seem to stop buying them.
      It’s been years since I last watched Texas Chainsaw so I am really looking forward to watching it again!


  3. I love the graphic you made, Maren!

    Salem’s Lot was the first Stephen King book I ever read. Still like it. I have the first movie, made quite a while back starring David Soul. Tried watching the newer version, but gave up on it.

    My first October book has plenty of paranormal with vampires, Werewolves and probably a witch among other assorted ghouls. It’s the last Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead Ever After.

    • I’ll be very interested to hear what you think of the way Harris ended the Sookie series! I’m a big fan of the series but wasn’t too keen on the ending.
      I didn’t realize Salem’s Lot was made into a movie! It will be my first Stephen King novel.

      • Salem’s Lot – twice, although at least one of them may be a tv movie.

        I’m only 50 pages in to Dead Ever After, but wondering if I’m seeing a hint of the direction it will take.

      • The ending of the Sookie series came as a total surprise to me. I caught an inkling of it in the beginning of the last book, but thought it might be a red herring. Not quite what I wanted, but probably one of the very best for Sookie.

  4. Love your lineups. We’re planning a Screaming Screening in October where friends gather for scary movies. We’re watching Halloween, The Birds, Scream, and have yet to decide on a fourth. As for books, I really want to know what you think of The Witching Hour as it’s on my TBR list. For now I’m reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

    • Thanks! Good choices for movies! I just ordered Halloween the other day to fill out my horror collection. Maybe I’ll even get to it this month. I love the Scream movies! I will definitely let you know how The Witching Hour is. I need to check out The Haunting of Hill House.
