Top Ten Books to get into the Halloween Spirit


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books to Get into the Halloween Spirit


I haven't read a horror/thriller book for a while so some of these are "old" books I read many years ago. I wouldn't say these are scary but I think they fit with Halloween really well. 






































The Uninvited is a book that I have only just started but I think it fits here just for the fact that within a few sentences at the beginning says ".....when a young child in buttery pyjamas slaughtered her grandmother with a nail-gun to the neck." Loc 9, 1%  

What is your top ten this week? Leave me a comment so I can visit yours. =)

  3. Great list! I read Cujo when I was 11 or so and it scared me so much. Pet Semetary is my favorite SK book. It's so creepy!

  6. Awesome lists, since you posted on mine that you had only read Anna, I have to recommend that you check out The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, it was so great and it had a creepy vibe to it and I just loved the book (I just read it so I am still in a bit of fan girl mode lol) I can't read Stephen King because of It I read the book when I was younger and I am terrified of clowns, it scared me to death lol. Awesome list!

  7. I had The Hunger Games on my list, but changed it for another title. It's pretty scary (well I thought so anyway) so it's suited for Halloween!
