Top Ten Tuesday {4}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's question: Top ten books to read during Halloween.

1. Z by Thomas Michael Ford
This book scared the living daylights out of me. I'll warn you though, it has a doozy of an ending.

2. Generation Dead by Daniel Waters
The creepiness in this one is a little more subtle, but I love it. The zombies here are so much for the brain-eating, but I love them anyway. In fact, this is the series that hooked me onto zombies :]

3. The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
This is another one that has the subtle creepiness going for it. It kind of permeated the whole story and honestly, I was even a little creeped out by the time I finished :P

4. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
I have some serious love for this series. I spent much of this (and the other two) with my stomach in knots and my breath held. The zombies are scary and the emotions are just so real.

5. Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
This was another one that was just kind of whatever until the end and then I was all "so, it was a bad idea to read this right before bed..."

6. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
So, this one isn't really creepy, but it has a ghost, so that counts, right? It's more of a cute Halloween read, but I figure there's a market for that.

7. Gone by Michael Grant
You might think living in a world where parents don't exist would be awesome, but it proves everything but in this book. It's not your typical Halloween scareiness, but it's definitely freaky and I totally love it.

8. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
The cover really says it all. Basically everything about this book is creepy :P

9. The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen
Mysterious and disturbing. That's like the whole package.

10. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
You definitely aren't expecting the creepiness when you look at the cover, but let me assure you, the necromancy brings a serious creep factor to the series.


  1. Wow. The Replacement looks so damned creepy! Just looking at the cover sends shivers down my spine!

  2. I like the way you annotated your picks. I should go back and do that for mine since I added strange books to my list, at least that way people would understand my reasoning.

    My Head is Full of Books


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
