Top Ten Books To Get In The Halloween Spirit
Yay! Fantastic topic.. I love this time of year for all the scary reads, since I love my ghost stories. Speaking of which, I’ve got a contest going on right now.. ends on the 28th. Share a creepy ghost story for your chance to win a scary book! Maybe it’ll be one of these on my list!
- Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
- Ten by Gretchen McNeil
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs | Not even so much as the story is super scary as the pictures! The photographs definitely up the creepy factor
- The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
- Cell by Stephen King | Not necessarily one of his most famous ones but this book stuck out for me as creepy and gruesome! Great for zombie fans
- The Black Isle by Sandi Tan | I’m reading this right now actually and this story set in Asia is pretty ghost-filled and eerie.
- The Passage by Justin Cronin
- Blindness by Jose Saramago | While I wasn’t a huge fan of this book, it definitely is a creepy mess-with-your-head kind of read. Great for crazy Halloween times.
- The Shining by Stephen King | Another Stephen King pick, this time a classic. Book was scary, movie was creepy, TV movie was even scarier – but what makes it creepiest for me is seeing the Ghost Hunters investigation of the Stanley Hotel that inspired King for this book. THAT makes this book even creepier.
- Everything’s Eventual: 14 Dark Tales by Stephen King | He’s the master of horror for a reason. This collection of CREEPY short stories includes “1408”, which has been made into a movie starring John Cusack.
