It’s officially Halloween weekend, which means you might have a few adventures up your sleeve. Whether you’re getting in the car for a leaf-peeping road trip, heading to a spooky-themed gathering, or just trying to make your commute scary in a different way, Audible and Waze have you covered.

The navigation app is teaming up with the digital audiobook and podcast service, creating a seamless integration that allows you to choose from a slew of spooky selections cherry-picked to celebrate Halloween. There’s something for everyone among the curated collection, including Audible original books featuring stories about deep, dark family secrets to classic haunted tales such as “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and “The Haunting of Hill House,” as well as more family-friendly picks such as “Goosebumps” and “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”

If you’re brave enough to listen to some seriously creepy audiobooks at night, you’ll find books that inspired fan-favorite horror films, such as “Pet Sematary,” “The Exorcist,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” and so many more — all included as part of these new horror-themed playlists.

Accessing all the hair-raising options is frighteningly easy, as long as you’ve got the most current version of each app available. Open the Waze app and tap the audio app icon on the right side of the screen. You’ll then select Audible as your audio app and click “Accept” to connect. Then, tap “Show list” on the Audible banner in the Waze app to choose a recent title from your library.

If you don’t have an Audible account, Prime members can enjoy a 30-day free trial of Audible Premium Plus along with two complimentary titles, allowing you to choose any two selections from the premium library that you can keep forever, even if you cancel before the trial is up. After the trial period is over, you’ll get one title per month at $14.95 plus any applicable taxes.

Just don’t forget to sleep with one eye open after you choose your chilling picks.
