Bev's Book Beat-October 2023
“Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows’ Eve.”
October is my favorite month as it is the start of my favorite season. Nothing is better than the beautiful colors of fall.
October is also the month to read those scary, spooky books. Books that keep you on the edge of your and keep you up all night.
Here’s a few;
Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
The Birds by Daphne du Maurier
Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
I Am Legend by Richard MathesonAbraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
MacBeth by William Shakespeare (a favorite)
The Wave by Todd Strasser
I could keep going, hope you find one from this list.
Unfortunately the list of banned books is growing.
"Books are banned because
they hold the power to
inspire readers, change minds, evolve society."
I encourage to read a Banned Book!
