scary books?

It's halloween right? Okay not october yet but... we're getting ready! The temperature dropped a tiny smidge and I'm ready to get out all the bat decorations. I also wanted to ask my fellow ljers here what's your favorite scary book?

I love reading horror in the fall. last year my favorite was "the girl with all the gifts" by mike carey.

I've read enough stephen king. I read Doctor Sleep, it was just okay. I think The Shining is an absolute masterpiece, I love dolores claiborne and carrie. but I was about 3/4 of the way through Salem's Lot when I realized that not every stephen king book is The Shining and maybe I've heard enough from this one author.

I just started "we have always lived in the castle" by shirley jackson, it's beautiful so far. I read "the haunting of hill house" last year.

I'm not usually a fan of series but I could try something. I'm not into crime or could-be-true thriller stories, I prefer to have ghosts or zombies or witches in the mix.

suggestions, friends?
