Turning Off The TV #1: Supernatural

tottvheader

Welcome to my new Thursday feature: Turning Off The TV! In this feature I’ll be recommending books similar to TV shows or films you may have enjoyed, both entire series and specific episodes.

The TV series this week is: Supernatural.

Two brothers follow their father’s footsteps as “hunters” fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth.

I’ll be covering Supernatural quite a bit in this feature, as there are so many different themes and monsters to discuss – but I’ll make sure to mix it up every week so it’s not just Supernatural for months!

Enjoyed ‘The Wendigo’ (Season One, Episode Two)?

Then you might like these reads that feature a Wendigo in some way. In fact I’m sure almost every Stephen King book could be recommended to fans of Supernatural! I’ve read some of Stephen King‘s work, but sadly not this one – I do like his writing though.

Enjoyed ‘Skin’ (Season One, Episode Six)?

Then give these books featuring skin-changers (also known as skin-walkers) a try. Unlike this episode, the skin-walkers are not necessarily the villains. The Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris is one of my favourite series, if not for amazing writing, then for just being a genuinely fun series to read.

Enjoyed ‘Asylum’ (Season One, Episode Ten)?

Asylums are certainly creepy places, and have been widely represented in literature. Here are some more stories to make them seem even creepier… Shutter Island is one of those books that really gets you thinking – one minute you’re sure of something, the next you’re questioning whether it’s the opposite.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Are you a fan of Supernatural?
