Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday

Sooo you might have noticed that I skipped TTT last week…after starting just two weeks prior to that. It was just so hard! I couldn’t think of any books I would change the titles of, not to mention what I would change those titles to. So, I took the easy way out and skipped it.

This TTT is Halloween freebies, aka so much more manageable than title revisions!

Let’s Talk Halloween

Before I get to my list, I want to bore you with some rambling. I love Halloween, but my love of the holiday always sneaks up on me. I don’t really get all that creative with costumes, I don’t usually decorate, and I typically don’t go to Halloween parties. Still, there’s something about the holiday that speaks to me. I don’t like scary movies but I love to hate getting scared at haunted houses. I don’t usually eat a lot of candy but I give myself all the cavities for Halloween. I love the crisp nights, seeing trick or treaters, and driving past everyone’s decorations.

And this year, I’m learning that I love spooky books! So, to pay tribute to my newfound love, here’s a list of my top ten spooky, unusual, and disturbing reads from this year.

  1. Strange Grace
    Spooky highlights: witches, the devil, and sacrifice
  2. Sawkill Girls
    Spooky highlights: monsters, murder, disappearances
  3. House of Salt and Sorrows
    Spooky highlights: curses, ghosts, murder
  4. The Wren Hunt
    Spooky highlights: witches, betrayal, dark magic
  5. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children 
    Spooky highlights: monsters, odd photographs, old house

  6. The Gates
    Spooky highlights: the gates of Hell, demons
  7. Anna Dressed in Blood
    Spooky highlights: vengeful ghosts, gruesome murder
  8. Winterwood
    Spooky highlights: witches, murder, haunted woods,
  9. The Vanished Bride
    Spooky highlights: bloody murder, foggy cliffs, ghosts
  10. Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse Spooky highlights: mouse ghost, monsters, creepy house

I think my love of Halloween all started with my love of Scooby Doo. Honestly, what’s better than Scooby Doo? Anyway, go to your local library/bookstore/Kindle and grab yourself some of these books! I guarantee you won’t regret it.

  1. Anna Dressed in Blood is such a great Halloween book! I used to pick it up to reread it every Halloween! I even dressed up as Anna one year! Great picks! Happy Halloween!
