Top Ten Tuesday is a meme by The Broke And The Bookish, and will be a feature on Emma, the Bibliophile-Librarian. In Top Ten Tuesday I make lists of books, because I love books and I love lists. Here at the Bibliophile-Librarian, I cannot guarantee that it will always be posted on a Tuesday, but I will try.
With Hallowe’en just around the corner, here are my top 10 Hallowe’en reads. There are so many other great Hallowe’en books that aren’t listed, but this is a good solid list (complete with scary pictures), which includes books from a variety of genres.
1. Any Stephen King Book… The Shining, It, Carrie, Misery (pictured below), Pet Sematary, Salem’s Lot. I picked up this fabulous copy of Misery at a book sale, and now I want to collect more of his books!
2. Kelley Armstrong’s Cainsville series: Also Armstrong’s YA Paranormal series Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising are great, but adult series tend to be more creepy.
3. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness: This series is a bit more romantic than the other two, but it seems like a good Hallowe’en read.
4. Any John Harwood Book: I love his writing and his books are legitimately creepy!
5. Any Wendy Webb Book: I loved The Fate of Mercy Alban and The Vanishing. I also like to promote true thriller/horror novels written by women.
6. Maureen Johnston’s Shades of London series: This series is honestly really creepy, and Southerner Rory, who is attending a London boarding school, is a great narrator!
7. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: A horror YA about monsters, lessons, and emotions.
8. The Moth Diaries by Rachel Klein: This book just looks so creepy!
9. R.L. Stein’s Goosebumps and Fear Street: How could I not? Goosebumps started by love affair with creepy stories!
