Each year for the #HoHoHo Readathon I try to read a horror story or thriller as my winter selection. Let Me In was an Audible daily deal. Murder, suspense and paranormal woo-woo await you in this page-turner.
I used to think only good things came in heart-shaped boxes. Things like chocolates or jewelry. That all changed when I listened to Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill during the Fraterfest Readathon earlier this year. Nope, I will forever hesitate when I open those boxes.
Deadmarsh Fey by Melika Dannese Lux is the first novel in the dark fantasy series, Dwellers of Darkness, Children of Light.

Ghosts, demons, fae, dragons and treachery await you in this twisted fantasy with elements of Victorian horror and lore.
The Owlmen by S. E. England was an atmospheric tale that will keep it’s audience on edge. Narrated by Henrietta Meire I quickly found myself caught up in Ellie Blake’s story as it unfolds just outside the moorland village of Bridesmoor.
The Outsider by Stephen King was an intense and creeptastic tale that renewed my faith in King, The audiobook narrated by Will Patton, drew me in as a man with a rock-solid alibi finds himself accused of a heinous crime.
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland is an alternate historical fiction where the Civil War ended when the dead rose hungry. Narrated by Bahni Turpin I quickly found myself caught up in this tale. A clever, sassy, kick-ass heroine and fantastic world-building left me itching for book two.
I grabbed Witch Hunter: Into the Outside by J.Z. Foster after his mom and author Lori Foster shared his book on Facebook. With the promise of witches, horror, and paranormal creatures I was excited to dive in. Richard Fitcher, a nerd and witch hunter who is a non-believer stumbles into a nightmare and pulled me along with him.
