Goldilox and the Three Scares Classic Horror Week Kick Off Post

We're doing something a little different for Halloween this year. This time of year always brings out the monsters. And some of our favorites are the ones from literature. We're looking at retellings and reimaginings of horror classics like Dracula and Frankenstein. And we're starting off with some that we've already reviewed. Watch for more reviews of books inspired by Classic Horror this week, along with some Halloween book recs.

It wouldn't be an event without a giveaway, so we've got a couple of those for you. The first one's right here at the bottom of the page. Check out our Instagram for another classic horror-themed prize.

Hunting Prince Dracula by Keri Maniscalco
Probably the most popular of the Classic Horror novels is Bram Stoker's Dracula. We loved Kerri Maniscalco's take on it.

The Diabolical Miss Hyde by Viola Carr
Not only does Carr include the daughter of the original Dr. Jeckyl (And she's a Steampunk CSI! How awesome is that?) but other classic characters like Dr. Frankenstein appear in the series as well.
Read Gretl's review.

Alice by Christina Henry
While they're not generally considered horror since they were written for children, I would argue that the surrealist elements in books like The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland can be horrific. They come from the same Gothic roots as the horror classics and certainly lend themselves to frightening retellings. Christina's Henry's very adult take on Alice is a great example.

Need a great Halloween read? We're giving away a copy of Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco and a pair of SJTR-inspired candles from Novelly Yours.
