Top Ten Books To Get In The Halloween Spirit
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s that time of year again… Halloween! Can you believe it? I don’t know about you guys but I never thought Autumn would ever come around. It was one seriously long Summer and I’m glad to finally have cooler temps… although I’m sure snow is right around the corner though.
But in the meantime, in order to get ready for Halloween here are a few of my favorite creepy stories!
Carrie by Stephen King
I had yet to read anything by Stephen King so when I finally decided to dive in I chose to start from the very beginning. Carrie is his first book and is a definite classic.
Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
This is one of my favorite books ever. Looking for something awesome, creepy, and full o’ ghosties? This is definitely your book.
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
I read this one when I was a teen and loved it. Super creepy with a great storyline.
Very interesting ghost story with a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming!
Anna Dressed in Blood was amazing and super creepy and gruesome!
So this book is on that list of books that scared the absolute crap out of me. After finishing I made my fiancé go into our dark room and turn on the lights before I would walk in. Yeah, I’m a wimp.
Horns by Joe Hill
After loving Heart-Shaped Box I had to read more by Joe Hill. Not as fantastic as HSB but still a fantastic storyline (and soon to be movie!)
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz
I remember reading these when I was a kid and being super creeped out but loving it.
Anything and Everything by Edgar Allan Poe
Poe is classic creepy. The type of creepy that really gets under your skin and leaves a lasting impression.
And last but not least…
Okay, so this isn’t just one book but I don’t actually have a favorite Goosebumps. These were hands down my favorite books when I was a kid. I had a TON of these and I would re-read them over and over again. I want to find the time one of these days to read some of them again just to see if I’d still enjoy them.
