Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Get Into the Halloween Spirit

Top Ten Books to Get into the Halloween Spirit
Whether these books are horror or paranormal with a creepy twist, they are all perfect to get you into the Halloween season.

1) Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender- Dolls that come to life and a killer cast of characters are just two reasons why you've got to read this one. Super creepy just in time for Halloween!

2) Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake- Horror meets Supernatural (the t.v. show) in this non stop thriller ride. Loved the main character and the ghost he is after!

3) Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake- Same terrifying imagery as the first one with a plot that will keep you on bated breath till the last page.

4) A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray- Nothing says scary to me better than a good Victorian boarding school novel filled with witchcraft and societal rules. Plus, the baddie is super scary!

5) The Devouring by Simon Holt- This is one of the few books that kept me up a night because I was too terrified to sleep. Clowns, gore and plenty more, there is something scary for everyone.

6) The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff- There is something so pleasantly off about the world Yovanoff created in this novel that you can't help but fall in love. It feels a little bit Tim Burtonesque to me.

7) The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab- Told in a fairy tale sort of way, this one reads as a cautionary tale not to follow the voice of the witch into the night. Definitely worth a look see.

What are your scary good reads this week?

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
