20+ Spine-Tingling Haunted House Books to Read This Halloween
From Gothic mansions to modern apartment complexes, the haunted house books on this list will convince you that spirits can show up anywhere. The horror genre is full of werewolves, vampires, and serial killers, but nothing beats settling in for a good old-fashioned story about a real estate nightmare. From the clueless family at the center of The Shining to the poor skeptics who sign up for a nightmarish visit to Hill House, the books on this list all have one thing in common: houses that love to mess with their inhabitants' minds. These dark domiciles range from the outright foreboding to the misleadingly inviting, but every single one of them comes with a story that will leave you checking your closet for monsters before you go to sleep at night.
