Here at Chicken House we love a good spooky read – something that you can read by candlelight (from a candle in a pumpkin, no less), curled up in an armchair on October 31st. So sit back, grab a copy of one of our fave spooky novels and prepare to feel all the chills …
The Halloweeds by Veronica Cossanteli (ages 10+)
Perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket’s dark humour! This middle-grade tale is a brilliant blend of laugh-out-loud funny, a little bit creepy and a twisty-turny mystery which will leave readers guessing right up to the exciting conclusion.
Darkmere by Helen Maslin (ages 14+)
A bunch of teens spend the summer hanging out in a castle by the sea. Awesome, right? Yep, except for the part where a nineteenth-century bride haunts the tunnels and towers of the castle – and whose curse now hangs over them now …
Dead Romantic by C.J. Skuse (ages 14+)
Solution to not being able to find the perfect boy? Making one yourself. At least, that’s what modern-day Frankensteins Camille and Zoe reckon. Bursting at the seams with C.J.’s trademark wit and humour!
