October 26, 2021

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Read Girl.
Each week features a book related topic to spotlight your Top Ten.


Halloween Reads

I will admit it....I don't read horror style books, I don't watch horror movies either. Hocus Pocus is right up my alley for Halloween Movies. My husband wishes otherwise, but oh well. 
Now, I love a good mystery that make you jump and be surprised, but I just can't do crazy creepy. However, if it is a good criminal thriller, I'm your girl. 

Here are some books I think are perfect for this time of year. 

by Tracy L. Higley
It's a dark setting, very mysterious based on one of the wonders of the world. 
by Jessica Dotta
This is a gothic style series. So much suspense and unknown. 
by J.K. Rowling
Just fun in general and Halloween is featured.

by Ted Dekker
It's a very dark and grisly series of sorts, but is so well told.
by Abigail Wilson
Gothic style stories. Written with mystery and similar to Jane Eyre.

by Jaime Jo Wright
All written in split time and offers mysteries and a a spooky feel.

Historically accurate and a bit of a darker story. Very gripping.

What books do you like to read this time of year?


  1. Same. I like a story that sends shivers down my spine but doesn't give me horrible nightmares. I've only read one of the books you listed—I'll have to give some of the others a go.

    Happy TTT!

  2. Pretty much the same! And...Jaime Jo Wright made my list this week too.

  3. I don't do horror either, but I love a good mystery! Harry Potter is definitely perfect for this time of year. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  4. I'm not one to read spooky books either.

  5. I love horror! But, a creepy thriller is good too. :) Thanks for the recommendations!
