When it comes to horror, sometimes a book can be just as effective as a film. Whether it’s a classic such as Dracula, or the newest YA novel from an aspiring author, horror sink its teeth into our minds through the use of written words. To celebrate the new year, we here at Nightmarish Conjurings have looked back at some of our favorite books that we read in 2018. Hopefully you’ll find something that speaks to your soul and leaves you with nightmares for days to come!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year... for horror! With the holidays, snow, and seasonal depression on its way, the only cure to warm yourself up in the next few months is through the watchings of your favorite winter and Christmas horror movies. Seeing as nobody in their right mind would want to read a list that’s forty films deep, I have narrowed it down to fifteen of my favorites (in no particular order) that I like to throw on from now until winter’s dreary end.

I read a lot.
Laundry goes undone. Dishes are left to grow fuzzy green mold in the sink. My children run like wild animals out of a scene from "Lord of the Flies". All because I'd rather be reading. This year, I made it a point to read outside my typical genres - horror quickly became one of newest loves. Not all of these books were published in 2016, but I read them this year, which totally counts. I hope you find your new favorite read in one of these.
