Pick your favorite horror movie, and we'll give you a book rec

Halloween is upon us! If you've been paying attention, you'll know Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love it so much! Honestly, I would dress up and go to haunted houses every day in October if I could. Alas, dressing as a witch or a goblin everyday is generally frowned upon, and there are no haunted houses close enough to my house for me to visit everyday. So how do I get my Halloween fix through the month of October? Movies and books, baby! But how to decide what to read next? I GOT YOU! Pick your favorite of these scary movies, and I'll give you a book to add to your TBR. Reader, beware! A spooky time awaits!

7 Perfect One Night Standalones to Binge (one for each night of the week)

NOVL Hot Take: Sometimes, I much prefer standalones to super long series. They’re compact, contained, and can be devoured in one sitting. You spend a perfect amount of quality time with a character, and are always satisfied by the end of the book (no sneaky cliffhangers!). Lucky for me, I work with so many PERFECT standalones at LBYR that I rounded them up for you.
