Spooky Audiobooks

It’s that time of year! The leaves are changing color, the pumpkin-spice pressure is real, and the spookiest of holidays is quickly approaching. To celebrate, a few of our bookseller partners are sharing their favorite spooky audiobooks, picked especially for Libro.fm listeners!

Before the Devil Breaks You

By Libba Bray • Narrated by January LaVoy
“Ghosts, supernatural events, and the Jazz Age- the scenes are spooky and the narration is spectacular. Love it, even when it creeps me out.”
—Laura Gibbons, The Red Hen Bookshop

Sawkill Girls

By Claire Legrand • Narrated by Lauren Ezzo
“I made the mistake of listening to this one before bed. That being said, never have I read a greater call to feminism than Sawkill Girls. Nor has horror ever been so utterly enticing. Sawkill Girls had me in fits of hysterical laughter as often, if not more so, than it had me on the edge of my seat. And the characters were so incredibly well-crafted.”
—Britt Hopkins, Second Star to the Right

The Cabin at the End of the World

By Paul Tremblay • Narrated by Amy Landon
“It’s frightening, suspenseful, and will leave you questioning everything.”
—Victoria Moore, Whitty Books

Heart-Shaped Box

By Joe Hill • Narrated by Stephen Lang
“I love ordering things and getting goodies for my collections but what if they were haunted!!”
—Cindi Whittemore, Ink Spell Books

Hollow Kingdom

By Kira Jane Buxton • Narrated by Robert Petkoff
“Seeing the Zombie Apocalypse through the eyes of a domesticated, sarcastic crow. A perfect spooky tale with humor for October!”
—Markie Rustad, Liberty Bay Books

The Hunger

By Alma Katsu • Narrated by Kirsten Potter
“Dinner party with a supernatural twist. Scary good.”
—Tricia Clapp, Mostly Books

Bunnicula

By James Howe • Narrated by Victor Garber
“Vampire bunny. ‘Nuff said.”
—Emily Somberg, Pegasus Books

I'll Be Gone in the Dark

By Michelle McNamara • Narrated by Gabra Zackman
“Part true crime, part memoir, all spook and creep.”
—Liz Decker, Caprichos Books

The Diviners

By Libba Bray • Narrated by January LaVoy
“It’s as if The Great Gatsby were a horror story with murder, magic, and demons. It’s one of my faves, but I absolutely cannot listen to it before bed.”
—Rebecca Speas, One More Page
