The first book I want to recommend is The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.
Shirley Jackson is a great writer and this novel is considered one of the best Gothic novels of all time. I have already talked about this novel in the review dedicated to him that you find here: http://www.mjpsreviews.com/2018/10/16/the-haunting-of-hill-house-book-by-shirley-jackson-review/

Another book that I recommend a lot is IT by Stephen King.
The story of IT is quite famous. Everything is set in Derry, an American town where many children, are killed and disappeared, victims of a clown, Pennywise. I also made a review of It, and I recommend it a lot because I found it terrifying and very deep. Here is the review: http://www.mjpsreviews.com/2017/11/27/1713/
With the next title, however, it changes a bit. Let’s move to England with Agatha Christie and her most famous work: And Then There Were None.
Traditionally this novel is considered a mystery, but I do not think so. Despite maintaining a structure of a whodunnit, And Then There Were None does not have a detective or a policeman, but only the ten strangers who find themselves having to divide a roof, when they strangely begin to die, one after another. The situation is strongly horror, as well as some scenes, reading it, it is really scary.
For the last two titles I chose classics, which helped to create the horror genre.
The first is a great classic that has inspired millions of movies and books: Dracula by Bram Stoker.
The epistolary novel by Stoker has made history and is a more than valid title to get some good scare during the night of 31. A novel that scares a lot, especially with the discovery of the character whose name it bears.

But we have reached the last literary council and, of course, we can not speak of Edgar Allan Poe his Tales of Terror. These stories have been published in various editions, often combined with those of mystery and fantasy. Poe has certainly helped a lot to create the now modern horror genre and his stories are truly terrifying. I have yet to read them all, but one day I will recover them. And you should do it too.
