Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is:

The Top Ten Books to Get You in the Mood for Halloween

     Hello!  Demonic possession get anyone in the mood for Halloween?

   Silver by Talia Vance

      To me, nothing screams Halloween like the ancient Celts.  After all , they are the original celebrators of Halloween.


     No Halloween list would be complete without a book about the zombie apocalypse.

   The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

  Seers that speak to the dead? Yeah, you can find that in this creepy read!

       Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

       A creepy mystery, an odd family returning to town and tales of murder most foul.  This book will definitely get you in the mood for Halloween.

      Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

     This one is a zombie book set in the Victorian era!

      The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

      You can't have a Halloween list without a vampire book, and if you are going to read a vampire book this year, it must be this one!  Julie Kagawa has worked her magic on the undead.

      Misfit by Jon Skovron

      This book features demons galore!  A half-demon heroine, her demon mother and other demons chasing her down. 

      The Cellar by A.J. Whitten

    This zombie book is for those who like a little more gore with their zombies.  There were scenes that really squicked me out in this one!

    The Hollow by Jessica Verday

    This is my required ghost read.  This book not only features ghosts, but it's set in Sleepy Hollow!

     Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

     I know that this is actually number 11, but I just had to put this book on the list.  It's not scary at all, but this tongue-in-cheek look at vampires is so, so entertaining!  Think of it like the book version of the Monster Mash!

So, these are my Halloween reads.  What books would you recommend to get in the mood for Halloween?




  1. I still haven't read the Immortal Rules book yet. I am dying too! Great list!

  2. I haven't ready any of these (yet). But THE RAVEN BOYS is very high up on my TBR list.

  3. I haven't read any of these either @ Jessica ^^
    Great list! I'll definitely be checking some of these out soon. :)
