At Chaminade University, our Faculty are one of the core elements that make Chaminade such a special place to learn and grow. Along with dedicating countless hours to prepare for their classes and help students flourish academically, they are also engaged in their own scholarly communities and contribute to the growing world of academic knowledge.

October Chills & Thrills Reading List

The rainy weather and slight temperature dip offers perfect conditions for one to cozy up with spooky books eliciting just the right amount of chills. Below is a selection of hauntingly good books to bring you delight.

"In the middle of the eighteenth century the Gothic became the universal language of architecture, painting and literature, expressing a love not only of ruins, decay and medieval pageantry, but also the drug-induced monsters of the mind... Gothic Histories is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the Gothic and its literary double, in the horror genre, leading the reader from their origins... to the very different worlds of Hannibal Lecter and Goth culture." - from publisher

Carroll, R. (1996). Chicken skin: true spooky stories of Hawaii. Bess Press. 

Across the State, spooky stories have been told from generation to generation. In this collection by acclaimed local storyteller, you will be reading with your lights on as you learn of the ghost stories that have taken place in your own backyard. Ancient stories of Pele, the Fire Goddess, to modern hauntings in burial caves, the stories will cause you skin to tingle and your breath to quicken.

Grant, G. (1997). The secret Obake casebook: tales from the darkside of the cabinet. Mutual Publishers.

Known as the authority on local ghost stories, Glen Grant captures hundreds of spooky stories told in the Islands. Ranging from short stories to creepy campfire tales to spook, warn, and terrify. These paranormal tales will linger in your mind for days after you are done reading.

Schwartz, A. (2017). Scary stories 3: more tales to chill your bones. Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

"More traditional and modern-day stories of ghosts, haunts, superstitions, monsters, and horrible scary things." - from publisher

Shelley, M. W. (2003). Frankenstein. Borders Classics.
