I even used the last post’s picture, basically because I liked it and also, laziness. 

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is: Halloween related freebie! I totally copied this from a post I did like 10 years ago, because guys, I am tired. I have a blog post in the works about that, shockingly, but here we are.

So, today is a Halloween freebie (again)! And, would you look at that, Shannon needs a Halloween book to read (again)! But alas, I cannot decide anything, and certainly not a spooky/creepy/eerie book to read. So… YOU shall. And then I will read it this week. And I’ll let you know how it was in my monthly recap! (True story, I actually read the last one you chose, so chances are good that I will listen to you all!)

What are some of your favorite scary/creepy/spooky books? I am hit or miss with them, which is probably why these are still on my shelf, BUT I really want to read them so… may the odds be ever in their favor!

  1. This is a really great idea.
    I switch up on reading any books really. In horror, sometimes I’d want to read something supernatural, others I just want a good ole teen scream book with stalkers and serial killers. Usually in October I do themes, and this year was Urban Legends. It was pretty interesting reading those books!

    I’m not really an outright scary book kind of person, but I do enjoy a good spooky book. The Diviners series was a lovely spooky book series discovery last year. I also love The Raven Cycle for that kind of eerie vibe, and the Unwind series for a more obviously scary series. The Skuludggery Pleasant series has a great mix of spookiness and humour which is probably why it’s one of my favourite series.

  3. I know it’s not really horror, but right now I’m reading the “new” Twilight book. I will be finishing it on Thursday. I will be reading next Malorie by Josh Malerman. It’s the sequel to BirdBox.

    So, Dark Matter was highly rated by a number of our Bookish Games cohorts, which makes me think that’s a safe choice. But Obscura has an unreliable narrator, which I feel always makes a read more thrilling. But Sin Eater sounds wickedly creepy. But Ninth House I hear so many good things about. But some of my favorite book bloggers adored Bone Houses. Gah!

  5. I voted for Dark Matter generally because that’s the only one I’ve read from this list and I absolutely loved it. Feels more of a massive unputdownable thriller for me than a horror but still really, really good nonetheless.

  6. I used to hate scary books, but now I kind of love them. I’m a big mystery/thriller fan. I voted for Mexican Gothic because it’s one that I hope to read in November. I also have Ninth House and None Shall Sleep that I hope to read soon. I don’t have Obscura, but it’s on my wish list!


  7. Okay but Horrid!!! It’s a quick read and the ending is just WOAH and I definitely hope you try it ??? I also really super love Ninth House of course ? and None Shall Sleep is genuinely CHILLING.
