Something about fall makes me want to curl up and read something spooky. See, normally, I stay away from anything that can give me a scare. Recently, however, I’ve been watching thrillers and actually seeking out a good spook. Who knows, I might even go to Halloween Horror Nights this year. Who am I?
Well, here’s what on the TBR for all things fall. Pay no mind to the fact that it’s mostly Stephen King…
Pet Sematary by Stephen King
I know, I know, how haven’t I read this yet? I’m an infant, okay? I just don’t read anything even remotely scary so I have been underappreciating Stephen King for a while even though I have owned this book for about a year now.
The Shining by Stephen King
I’m unsure if this will make it worse… but I’ve also never seen the movie. So, my current plan is to read the book then see the movie, even though I know Stephen King didn’t like this movie at all but, you kind of have to watch it, right? I feel as though this blog post is becoming a confession of how many pop-culture things I somehow missed out on. But, there’s no time like the present to fix that!
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
I was absolutely obsessed with Gone Girl, which is what lead to the purchase of this book. I honestly have incredibly high hopes for Dark Places. So, Gillian Flynn, please don’t let me down. I also scored this book from my local library for only a couple of bucks. Let me tell you if you don’t take advantage of used book sales, what are you doing?
Right now, I am keeping my TBR pretty short. But, what is on your list for the fall? Comment below! Hopefully, I’ll be able to add some of your suggestions to my TBR.

Great list! I listened to Pet Sematary earlier this year and really liked it. I’m actually going to start reading the Shining soon too and then read Doctor Sleep. I also loved Gone Girl but Dark Places was a little too much for me. I hope you enjoy your fall TBR!
How’s the audiobook for Pet Sematary? I was thinking about trying to grab it from the library but wasn’t sure if it was scarier lol
I liked the audiobook. Have you seen the show Dexter or do you know who Michael C. Hall is? He’s the narrator and I think he makes it a little more suspenseful. I think Pet Sematary is a good book to start with.
Omg, I’ll have to check it out! I really liked Dexter, but I honestly never finished it. I heard the ending was disappointing. But he’s an amazing actor so I’m sure his reading of it is fantastic.
Yes! I watched Dexter and it’s probably okay you didn’t finish it, I agree about the ending. But if you like his voice I’m sure you will love his narration.
