24 Hour Horror-A-Thon TBR

Ashley’s Little Library on YouTube now hosts a bi-monthly 24 Hour Horror-A-Thon, which feels like the perfect way to spend a day the weekend before Halloween. I’m looking forward to joining in and reading as many short horror books as I can, although I do have family plans this weekend, so my readathon will be a little shorter. Even so, I think it will be a lot of fun and I’m excited about the books on my TBR.

I may not have time to read all of these books during the readathon, but I am planning to get through all of them over the weekend. Here are all the books on my 24 Hour Horror-A-Thon TBR:

Anna and the Apocalypse
by Katharine Turner

Anna Shepherd is a straight-A student with a lot going on under the surface: she’s struggling with her mom’s death, total friend drama, and the fallout from wasting her time on a very attractive boy. She’s looking forward to skipping town after graduation–but then a zombie apocalypse majorly disrupts the holidays season. It’s going to be very hard to graduate high school without a brain.

To save the day, Anna, her friends, and her frenemies will have to journey straight to the heart of one of the most dangerous places ever known, a place famous for its horror, terror, and pain…high school.

by Stephen King

The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.

The Haunting of Hill House
by Shirley Jackson

Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable noises and self-closing doors, but Hill House is gathering its powers and will soon choose one of them to make its own.

The House
by Raelyn Drake

The old, abandoned house at the end of Grace’s street is a local legend. All the neighbors say it’s haunted, but every Halloween someone leaves candy on the front porch. Grace and her friends decide to investigate, hoping to find out once and for all if someone–or something–really is haunting the place. But what if there is more to the house than there seems?


Kimihiro Watanuki is haunted by visions of ghosts and spirits. He seeks help from a mysterious woman named Yuko, who claims she can help. However, Watanuki must work for Yuko in order to pay for her aid. Soon Watanuki finds himself employed in Yuko’s shop where he sees things and meets customers that are stranger than anything he could have ever imagined.

by Tim Seeley

In almost every slasher movie, there’s one girl who makes it all the way to the end. She’s the survivor… the last girl. Meet Cassie Hack, the lone survivor of an attack by a vicious slasher called The Lunch Lady. Now, Cassie – along with her monstrous partner, Vlad – travels the country, hunting down other slashers before they can leave a trail of blood and terror.
