Top Ten Tuesday (2): Books To Read Around Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke And The Bookish and this week the theme is Books To Read Around Halloween.

1. The Devouring by Simon Holt:
This trilogy still gives me cold chills when I think about it. And the very first time I read it was on the Winter Solstice. Yeah, kind of freaked me out. *SHUDDER* 

2. 7 Souls by Barnabas Miller: Go read the summary here  doesn't it sound creepy?

3. All Hallow's Eve by Vivian Vande Velde: I read this book a couple of Halloween's ago with my sister and found it delightfully creepy. I will never look at a scarecrow the same way again. Nor will I ever be able to hear the song "Up On The Housetop" without thinking of this book

4. The Hollow by Jessica Verday:
This book was based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, and  absolutely loved it. I think that it fits perfectly with this theme.

5. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh:        
It ties in with Edgar Allan Poe... Need I say more?

6. The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot: This book is not super sreepy, but it still has ghosts in it. I think that makes it perfect for someone who doesn't want to be scared half to death. (Pun intended)

7. Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel:  It's not a scary book, but still, a zombie invasion... Seriously, how could I not include this book? It is way beyond awesome.

8. Rampant by Diana Peterfreund: Killer Unicorns. That is all.

9. Devoured by Amanda Marrone:  This is based loosely on Snow White, which is what drew my attention to it in the first place. But it's not the version we all remember from when we were little. And even though it is not Extra Super Duper Terrifying, it's still pretty creepy.

10. Walk Of The Spirits by Richie Tankersley Cusick:
I love this book, I couldn't NOT include it. It's made of pure Awesomeness.


  1. Dearly, Departed mad it on my list too. And I really have to read Nevermore, especially if it's not too creepy as I don't do scary things :)

    My TTT list for Halloween

  2. I totally forgot about Dearly, Departed for my list, but it's a great one to have on there! And Rampant! I love that book and its sequel way, way too much.
