Top Ten Books To Read To Get In The Halloween Spirit

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week it is Top Ten Books To Read To Get In The Halloween Spirit.

This list is going to be HARD for me to create as I shy away from scary reads. My imagination just always runs away with itself. So please excuse my rather ‘tame’ list!

As ever, click on the book image to take you to Goodreads!

Hollow Pike


This book is particularly creepy! I found it very eerie, but so engrossing!

Cruel Summer


Cruel Summer definitely has a I Know What You Did Last Summer vibe. I loved it!

Say Her Name


James Dawson does it again with the very creepy Say Her Name. It is based on Bloody Mary. *shudders*

Into The Darkest Corner


This book is more of a psychological thriller. It’s still pretty disturbing though…if you like a disturbing read!

Follow Me Down


Tanya Byrne is an amazing writer. This book is mysterious and engaging!

The Drowning


I don’t recommend this book if you’re experience flooding and horrendously wet weather. Like I was, when I read this… *shudders again*



Another warped psychological thriller. I really enjoyed this book!

Dead Silent


I absolutely love this series! Dead Silent is particularly creepy.

The Girl Who Wasn't There

I read The Girl Who Wasn’t There as part of my feature I do with Luna from Luna’s Little Library.

A book I’m looking forward to reading with a Halloween vibe!


Alex Bell is a good friend of mine. Her first YA Horror novel is coming out soon in paperback. It is available as an e-book at the moment. It looks and sounds so creepy. I’m pretty sure she thinks I won’t read it… but I will!

What books put you in the Halloween spirit? Feel free to leave a link to your posts and I’ll stop by!

  1. I’m such a weenie when it comes to books (or really…everything), so I’m totally with you on scary reads haha. I haven’t read any of these! …and I’m not sure I could handle trying any of them either

  2. The Girl who wasn’t There has a gorgeous cover! Despite your disclaimer that you shy away from scary reads (as do I) I’d say you’re pretty brave to have read some of these based on the synopses…Say Her Name looks particularly terrifying *shudders*

  3. I haven’t read any of these but Hollow Pike and Say Her Name are both freaking me out, based on the covers alone. I love them, but in a really creepy way. I really want to check out Say Her Name but I am really scared! Great list!

  4. I haven’t read any of those books (I really scare easily) but I think I will have to check some of them out. But not the one based on Bloody Mary, I can’t handle that. (Yes, I am totally afraid of Bloody Mary, lol) I do enjoy mystery though. Great list!
