Ring Shout

By P. Djeli Clark
Narrated by: Channie Waites
Length: 5 hours 36 minutes

Ring Shout

“The emotionally charged, wild ride of Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark was one I did not want to end. Clark pulled me into the life of Maryse and her band of monster hunters and held me hostage. With beautiful language, deep characters, and a fully immersive world, this story of vengeance and self-forgiveness unfolds. By the end, I was in tears. Ring Shout perfectly takes on a dark, violent history, but also an uncertain, terrifying future. Everyone needs to read Ring Shout.”

My Heart Is a Chainsaw

By Stephen Graham Jones
Narrated by: Cara Gee
Length: 13 hours 3 minutes

My Heart Is a Chainsaw

“This frequently amusing and ultimately satisfying meta-horror novel follows Jade, a Native high-schooler with no friends, no extant future outside her janitorial job, and a deep love for slasher flicks, which are her coping mechanism in the face of an alcoholic father and absentee mom. Film trivia pervade the narration at every turn, but slasher newbies (like myself) will find the references easier to follow thanks to Jade's essays, presented in between chapters. Soon enough, a series of deaths convince Jade that a real slasher cycle is starting. Is this the overactive imagination of a struggling teen? And if not, what is it? My Heart Is A Chainsaw balances its obligations to both developing real characters of the sort not seen in pulp films, and functioning as a slasher itself, one that will keep you guessing until the end. On the way there, horror tropes are used to examine Native American identity, economic inequity, and childhood trauma. If you're into slashers, this is one you can't afford to miss; otherwise I would suggest listening to a sample to see if the narrational style is up your alley.”

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Best book I have read this year. An amazing, gripping tale of a young woman in a strange old house. It's an epic ghost story mixed with some element for "Girl with all the Gifts." Compelling characters and a twist ending that will have you in the edge of your seat until the very end. 10/10 would recommend. ”

Slewfoot

A Tale of Bewitchery

By Brom
Narrated by: Barrie Kreinik
Length: 14 hours 14 minutes

If you enjoyed Krampus, then you’ll love Slewfoot.

“As both novelist and illustrator, Brom's work often explores the delicate and devilish dance between monstrosity and humanity. Slewfoot, a story about a young girl, an ancient spirit, and the burgeoning magic between them, is no different. While Slewfoot is a dark tale of witchery and devilry, it is also a book that explores our connection to nature, the push and pull opposing religions, and the good and evil at the very core of humanity. With a wonderful narrator, Slewfoot is a delightfully wicked time and the perfect audiobook to kickstart your Halloween reading this year.”

Set in Salem in the 1980s, we follow a group of high school field hockey players as they struggle with their new dark powers and attempt to end their losing streak. One of the strangest, most satisfying books I have read in a long time!”

The Ex Hex

A Novel

By Erin Sterling
Narrated by: Caitlin Davies
Length: 7 hours 23 minutes

The Ex Hex

“In line with Halloween classics such as Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic, The Ex Hex is a funny, witchy rom-com about a hex gone so wrong. Main characters Rhys and Vivi have good banter as they work out the many curses affecting the town. A quick and entertaining read. My favorite character is, of course, Sir Purrcival the cat.”

The Last House on Needless Street

By Catriona Ward
Narrated by: Christopher Ragland
Length: 11 hours 49 minutes

The Last House on Needless Street

“This one lives up to the hype. Although there are numerous points where the story is revealed to be something quite different from what it appeared, you won't remember it just because the plot twists left your head spinning, but rather because of the fascinating, exquisitely-voiced narrators (including, yes, the gay Christian housecat) and haunting atmosphere. The audiobook is excellent -- Ragland invents a convincing and unique voice for each character, and when the emotions of the story run raw, his voice carries that intensity. If you are looking for a straightforward horror story, you might be disappointed, but if you're looking for something strange, beautiful, and unexpected you'll enjoy your time in this house.”
