I did a similar post about scary reads last year but wanted to share some reads from this past year that I found particularly creepy (and a few that didn’t make the top ten cut from last year). Not all of these are focused on the paranormal and aren’t exactly fit for a ‘Halloween’ read but are no less able to get under your skin.

I’m glad to see that I have some of the books that you mentioned in my tbr pile and only heard the best things about them; The Waking Dark and Into the Shadows of Blackbirds. Also I’m always in the mood for creepy reads around this time, even though I don’t typically pick them up, so thanks for sharing your list with us Bonnie! 🙂 Jasprit recently posted…Review: Fractured (Guards of the Shadowlands #2) by Sarah Fine
I had a plan to read a ton of scary books this month but it didn’t happen. The Waking Dark and Into the Shadows of Blackbirds are both fantastic.. hope you get to them soon! Bonnie recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday – Best Scary Reads
The cover of on Demon Wings scares the crap out of me! OMG, so scary – I’d never be able to even open that one! 🙂 Terri Bruce recently posted…Hereafter Short Description
I like how you’ve divided these up, hah. I liked Blackbirds and Diviners so I will have to look out for those other two as well! We’re posting our spooky recs on Thursday, and I have some Halloween recs up tomorrow, too. Including The Waking Dark. 🙂 Wendy Darling recently posted…Mira Grant Recommends YA
Interesting list. I’ve only read The Diviners. A lot of these other ones sound fantastically eerie. Britt recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday
A very lovely mix of Scary! In the Shadow of Blackbirds is very much on my reading list.
Please do stop by for a look see at some fun Steampunkery costumes. Bookish and Comic.
