It’s a new kind of fright night this season—one that’s particularly more bookish than you ever could’ve thought before! That’s because we’re teaming up with Barnes & Noble to bring you the most epic selection of spooky, ghastly, and chilling reads for the season, all based on our fave horror movies! And honestly, what could get better than that?

Now, we’ll admit, a lot of horror stories can get silly. But isn’t that part of what makes the genre so fun? The movies we chose—Friday the 13th, Scream, The Purge, The Conjuring, and Happy Death Day—walk the line best, we think, and so we thought we’d have a little more fun! We rounded up some of the most iconic cliches and stereotypes to come from the horror genre and want you to tell us just how much you hate them. In exchange, we’ll tell you which hair-raising book you should move to the top of your TBR!

Sound like a ~spooktacular~ deal? Yeah, we thought so!
