Looking for a good scare this October as we gear up for Halloween?
It's one thing to watch a scary movie, but there is something about reading a truly terrifying horror book that stays with you much longer than any movie jump-scares.
And while Halloween is a great time to read something spooky, the really good stuff can be picked up anytime of year.
Ranker, a website that collates votes of internet users from around the world, listed some of the scariest horror-fiction of all time in 2020.
While some time has passed since the list was last updated, good horror holds up for years, even decades after it first tops the charts.
So if you're after a real scare this October or just want to pick up a new book you've never tried before, these are the novels you need to flick through.
But fair warning; you may want to invest in a nightlight while you read them...
