Top Ten Tuesday Halloween-ish Reads

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe Halloween is THIS week. The time has gone too fast and I’m not feeling as Halloween-ish as I usually do. I love this time of year so I really need to amp it up and get in the mood for festive times.

Today I’m going to share my Top Ten Halloween-ish reads. These aren’t necessary scary books more creepy and atmospheric.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a different question is posed and gives us bloggers an opportunity to share our top tens on all different types of bookish topics.

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Tucholke, In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters, The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud, Thin Space by Jody Casella, The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey, The Fall by Bethany Griffin, This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee, A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis and The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

Each of these books are out right now so if you’re interested you can pick any of these up.

I’m curious what your favorite creepy reads are? I’ve actually not done a lot of creepy reading this season so that could be one reason I’m not feeling like it should be Halloween yet. I’m still stuck thinking school just started.

    The Dead House, Madness So Discreet and The Girl with All the Gifts are on my TBR. I don’t normally read straight-up scary books, but I am branching out. 🙂

    The only books I have read from this book is The Girl With All the Gifts, and I really enjoyed it though! I didn’t find it as spooky as it could have been, because I read it on holiday. By the pool, camping in glorious sun doesn’t make an eerie atmosphere! I’m thinking of picking up The Dead House for Halloween – I own it, and I’ve heard some good things. Great recommendations! ♥

    I’ve read Anna Dressed in Blood and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I’m loving both paranormal aspects of the book, it gives creepy, dark and gothic atmosphere. But I don’t like the romance part of both books…
