Library Title Picks – February 2023
Hello Horror Lovers, and welcome to another month of great library picks!
Each month my library system lets me pick out 3 titles for them to purchase. It’s a wonderful way to support my fellow authors and read their works for free while getting the word out to all you bibliophiles out there.
This month I stuck with my favorite genre, horror. Man, I can’t wait to give these a read!
If you’re feeling adventurous, take a look at these book picks of mine below, and if you’re feeling generous, buy a copy or request one at your local library. Happy book hunting, bookworms!

Deep is the debut novel by Aquino Loayza, an intersection of New England Folklore and surrealist Lynchian Imagery woven together through the backdrop of rural Maine. Weather The Storm.
There are places on earth that carry an air of the ethereal—an aura of malevolence that can only be felt in the breathless whisper of a passing breeze. One of these places is found along the rugged mystical coastline of Maine’s northern shores—Juneberg. Since its inception the morbid mishaps of the city were carried on the murmurs of sailors and visitors who have seen the peculiarities up close. From people vanishing in the dead of night, as though they had been carried out to sea. To hushed utterances in the darkest corners of taverns about a nefarious Cult scheming in the underbelly of the city’s ancient tunnels.
Giovanni Divale is one such person, becoming obsessed with the town from a young age. Fate has brought him to its boundaries before, but this time the city may not be so keen on letting him leave. Will he discover the truth buried in the desolate decrepit city? Or will he become lapped up in the whirlpool of eldritch madness?
ONCE IN A LIFETIME
Three low-income families have been given a handsome retainer to join Geraldine Borden for a day at her cliffside estate. All the parents must do to collect the rest of their money is allow their children to test out the revolutionary playground equipment Geraldine has been working on for decades. But there’s a reason the structures in the bowels of her gothic castle have taken so long to develop—they were never meant to see the light of day.
When a band of dysfunctional children is suddenly thrust into a diabolical realm of violence, they must grow up instantly to have a chance at survival. Will they find a way to put their differences aside, or be swallowed up by the insidious architecture all around them?
“With Playground, Aron Beauregard transcends himself, delivering a genuinely chilling, uncomfortable novel that will make even the most jaded horror fan squirm. A harrowing, relentless read that left me breathless.”
– Brian Keene
This volume contains 15 interior illustrations.
WARNING: This book contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.
The tower appeared overnight, but it wants to keep you forever.
Thursday night, it was a dirt lot.
Friday morning, it was a 60-story skyscraper.
A tech billionaire wants the building’s secrets for herself. She hires a team to reverse-engineer the overnight construction. But she knows more than she’s letting on.
A curious 9-year-old decides there’s treasure inside, and goes exploring. His terrified dad chases close behind.
Inside, the facade of an empty office building is quickly shattered. Ghostly figures stalk the explorers. The walls themselves are hungry. And something is waiting on the top floor.
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed these library picks of mine!
