Which Scary Story Should You Be Reading Based On Your Horoscope?

As always, I find articles written and posted on Bustle's website to be fun to read and the article titled, The Scary Story To Read Based On Your Zodiac Sign by Charlotte Ahlin is no exception! In the article, Charlotte Ahlin writes the following:
It's that time of year again: everyone's drinking gourd-flavored coffee and warding off violent clowns in the streets. Orange has become temporarily fashionable. Halloween is almost upon us, and now is the time to read horror stories, as assigned by your horoscope. So here is the one scary story to read, based on your zodiac sign.
Look, I understand that astrology is a... soft science at 
best. Some might even argue that it's not a science at all (although I feel like Victor Frankenstein could maybe get behind it). But last I checked, zombies and vampires weren't real, either. Sorry to disappoint. If you're going to suspend your disbelief for long enough to get thoroughly freaked out by monsters, ghosts, and masked madmen, you might as well go the whole nine yards and start making decisions based on your astrological sign. It's more fun, anyway.
 Based on my Zodiac Sign (I'm a Gemini), my scary story choice is 
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. I haven't read this novel yet, so may just have to add it to my ever growing reading wishlist!

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a great classic! You should really read it.

    I'm a Virgo so my book is Carrie by Stephen King. I haven't read it, but I've definitely seen the movie. Will have give the book a try.

    1. I now have the ebook version of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson... Now to find the time to read it. So many books to read and so little time to read it seems!

    2. I hear yah! The little time that I have has been taken over with textbooks instead. However, I do get to read children's books so it's not too bad.

    3. Yes, reading textbooks & college course can put a damper on reading for fun!
