Top Ten Books to Read During Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books To Read During Halloween

1.)     The Shining by Stephen King-The ultimate Halloween book!
2.)    Dracula by Bram Stoker
3.)    The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
-Both of these books books are gothic literature at its best!
4.)    Pet Semetary by Stephen King
Animals and people rising from the dead equal a great Halloween story.
5.)    The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova-Vlad the Impaler…enough said.
6.)    In the Woods by Tana French-This murder mystery was super dark and very creepy!
7.)    The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman-A book set in a graveyard is a great read at Halloween.
8.)    Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin-Oh my goodness, the murderer in this story was a FREAK.  So scary!
9.)    The Witching Hour by Anne Rice-Witches and ghosts and demons, oh my!
10.) Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith-Another murder mystery with an uber scary villain!

What books do you like to read around Halloween?


  1. I'm a big chicken, so I never read scary books, not even at Halloween. I know kids love scary books,though, so I always try to read something scary to my young kids at my school library during this time.

    I don't think I'll ever brave enough to read The Shining!

  2. #8 Sounds like just the book for me! ;D

    I just started "The Haunting of Hill House" (Shirley Jackson) yesterday, and so far it's turning out to be a good Halloween book.

  3. Dracula is a popular pick! haven't read it but I think ill make it a point to read it.
    Awesome picks!
