Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Best Books To Read For Halloween.
Please note that this list is not created based on the scare factor of the book, but on the Halloween feel of the book.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Alice in Wonderland with zombies. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect Halloween book?
2. The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
A madman, his daughter, and an island, the perfect Halloween atmosphere.
3. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
The cover just screams Halloween! Plus, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is a bit gothic.
4. The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman
People dying. Enough said.
5. Something Strange & Deadly by Susan Dennard
The entire cover manages to scream Halloween, even though that girl is wearing such a pretty dress.
6. Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
The whole pattern on the cover of Paper Valentine reminds me of Halloween for some reason. Also, Paper Valentine is about murder and a serial killer – aka the perfect Halloween topic.
7. Enclave by Ann Aguirre
Monsters called Freaks that are actual freaks. This book screams Halloween. Plus, look at that creepy cover!
8. The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan
How is gargoyles not related to Halloween?
9. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Title and cover self-explanatory.
10. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Boys involves a graveyard, ghosts, and death. How is that not a perfect read for Halloween?
