      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.  

Horror Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm new to the forum so I apologise if I'm duplicating an old post.


I'm looking for recommendations for really REALLY scary horror novels. You know, the kind of stories that give you heart palpitations as you're reading them. Ones that really play on your mind so that you can't sleep, or have to have the light on for a while after reading them.


Preferably ghost stories but will take anything really. I've previously read books like Woman in Black, The Shining, IT, and also stories that feature haunted asylums. I'm good with gore and stuff but I just fancy a really good scare Haha!


Any author is fine, well known or not. In fact I love discovering and supporting new and upcoming authors. 


Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!


Thanks in advance!

Dark Matter by Michelle Paver is one of the creepiest books I have read. What about The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson? That one has received a lot of attention, what with the recent Netflix series.
