Witness these book recommendation posts we've gathered in just the past few days:
Ten Halloween romance books to read: Alison Doherty says her picks skew more cozy than creepy, but in terms of the explicit content, there's something for every preference level (BookRiot).
Eight horror books that question our obsession with beauty: Steph Auteri highlights a few reads that help push back against society's ugly insistence on physical perfection (BookRiot).
Eight ghostly short novels that you can read in one sitting: Author Nghiem Tran recommends these quick works in translation, from authors from around the world (Electric Literature).
Twenty must-read stories of eerie cabins and haunted homes: Emily Martin theorizes that these novels (and others like them) are so utterly terrifying because they make us believe that nowhere is truly safe (BookRiot).
