Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This weeks topic is one I have been waiting for ever since we started October, as I had planned to fill the month with so many spooky reads that this list would just be jam-packed with Halloween books for me to recommend. However, my reading didn’t go as well as planned this month, and so this list isn’t as long as I would have liked it to be because I just did not get round to all of the horror books that I wanted to.
But nonetheless, here are still six fantastic books to read this Halloween!
This is one I read specifically for the Halloween season, and so is a perfect book to read for it. It’s a murder mystery that will leave you guessing until the very end, and is perfect to read soon because the movie adaptation is out very soon as well.
This book manages to combine gorgeous writing with a captivating and mysterious story that will draw you in from the offset.
If your not a huge fan of horror books but still want to get into the Halloween spirit, then this series is perfect. It so magical and whimsical that includes some absolutely amazing characters, and with Maggie Stievfater’s writing making this one of the most atmospherical books and settings I have ever read.
This is another of my recent reads, and one that is a little different to your usual Halloween read. It takes place in a city where monsters are real, and are created from violent acts, and is such a interesting story that will just draw you in and make you never want to put it down.
This is another one that is spooky and has that Halloween feel to it without being a super scary horror, but instead is a gorgeously unique story about a group of peculiar children that will still creep you out with its use of old photographs.
Finally, if you enjoy classics a little bit more, then this one is perfect. It so dark, both in its English moors setting, and in the story and the characters themselves, and is just such a complex and intriguing read.
