Hello Horror Fans!

To celebrate the month of October and all things Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve or Samhain, whatever your spooky flavour may be, we are sharing a list of some of the most popular horror fiction, some newer scary stories, and some of our freakiest finds!
So, light your candles, lock the doors, cuddle your safety blankets and limber up for the upcoming jump-scares!

Horror fans (and even non-horror fans) won’t be surprised to see that our top 4 most borrowed horror fiction books are written by the GOAT himself, the king of nightmares: Stephen King. If you’ve never braved a Stephen King story or movie, well, I’d be incredibly surprised for a start! This man has been writing for quite sometime, has won innumerable awards and has published 64 novels, many of which have been adapted for film and television and 100s of short stories. In the words of Ian Molly Meldrum: “Do yourself a favour” and dive in to a terrifying tale today!
