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.
Tighter by Adele Griffin (My Review)
Very interesting ghost story with a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming!
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake (My Review)
Anna Dressed in Blood was amazing and super creepy and gruesome!
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill (My Review)
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!)
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.

  1. I loved Goosebumps as a kid (and Fear Street too!) You have quite a few books on your list that are on my shelf… unread. Happy Halloween!

    Oh Halloween, how I adore thee. 🙂 I love this post, Bonnie! Shirley Jackson, Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King (and don't forget Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker) are all authors that write my favourite classic horror novels that always give me the chills because of their creeeeeeepiness. I've never read the Goosbumps series as a kid but I read, I think it was called- Fear Street? Something of the sort, and they always scared the crap out of me.
