October 03 Read Spooky Stories

Ghost Reading Spooky Stories

On those cool Autumn evenings just before Halloween there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting on a cozy chair in front of a fireplace and reading spooky stories. It’s the perfect way to get into the Halloween mood. There are so many books and stories you could read, but I suggest you don’t rush through them. It’s better to pick a couple your most interested in and really take your time to read them slowly. That way you get a chance to get fully immersed in the elements of the stories your reading. That will also allow your imagination to conjure up images of witches, ghosts and magic that are written into the pages. So, grab a book, curl up with a warm blanket, sip your hot chocolate and dive in to a frightfully macabre story.
