Book suggestions: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury, Joyland by Stephen King, Hallowe'en Party by Agatha Christie, Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern or Carniepunk, an urban fantasy anthology!

Book suggestions: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, The Last Policeman by Ben Winters, The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, The House with the Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs.

 

New release: mystery, suspense, horror or supernatural that was published after 10/31/17.

 

Book suggestions: too many to count, but I am personally looking forward to reading Tricks for Free by Seanan McGuire, which was released on 3/6/18!

 

Genre: Suspense: anything that fits into the suspense genre.

 

Book suggestions: again, this is a broad category - there are so many available books. I haven't settled on anything to fill this square.
