31 Days of My Favorite Horror Books – Day 19 – A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS by Paul Tremblay

For the month of October, I will be writing brief essays about my 31 favorite horror books.


This is one of the most recent entries on my list. Tremblay takes the possession story trope and updates it and spins it around in some very ingenious ways. The story primarily focuses on two sisters, the younger of the two who may be possessed by a demon. A reality show gets involved documenting the sister and the attempts at giving her an exorcism. But that all happened years ago. The book also flashes to the present where the older sister, now a writer for horror outlets, is giving an interview to a book writing looking back on what happened.

Multiple time periods, viewpoints, a media make this an extremely engaging book that constantly has the reader wondering what is going on and where is this all headed.

While I enjoyed the novel while reading it wasn’t until the end and the two final “twists” that I was really blown away. The ending left the story lingering in my mind for days and consider how much horror media I consume, that’s really saying something.

You can buy this book here.
