Top Ten Books To Read During Halloween

I take it that this means scary books. I am not one to read really scary books (I don’t watch scary movies either), so my answers might be a little disappointing to some of you. Here it goes:

Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann – The cover itself is just creepy, isn’t it?  This book is mysterious, horrifying, and sweet, all in one.  
Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry – This is the first zombie book I’ve read and it was incredible.  Really enjoyed it, it is a little disgusting, is action packed and full of mystery and secrets too.
Dreamhunter duet by Elizabeth Knox – After I finished these I couldn’t stop thinking about the story (and I still do!) The book has a really original plot, confusing at times, but with a good ending.
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson – This is another book that had me thinking for a while after I finished.  It involves serious discussions on medical ethics, but the creepy part is that you know (just as Jenna knows) that something is not quite right, and we discover what it is just as she does.
Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent – If demons, banshees, maras, reapers and other supernatural beings is what you are looking for, look no further that the Soul Screamers series.  These books are action packed, full of romance, conflict and much more.  I love them!
Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine – Although I haven’t read the last two books in the series, I really enjoy the residents of the Glass House and their adventures (or misadventures?)
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce – This book has a dark undertone to it and it is one of the few books around in which werewolves are the bad guys.  It is also action packed and has some kick-ass heroines.
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross – Why is this book in this list you ask?  Well, it does have some weird characters, wouldn't you agree?  It also has plenty of scary things happening.  Loved it!
Harper Connelly or Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris – Technically this is not one book, but several and adult reading as well, but I really enjoy the Harper Connelly series and the first books about Sookie as well.  They are also full of creepy stuff!
Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows by J. K. Rowling – For some reason Halloween reminds me of Harry Potter, and what better book in the series than the last one!
What good "Halloween" books are on your list?


  1. I've been wanting to read Rot and Ruin. I love zombie books; they are one of the few villains that really scare me. Sisters Red is on my list, too; it really was very creepy, wasn't it? Especially the way the wolves transform.

  2. I'm seeing a lot of cryers cross haven't read it but I think it's good.
    Awesome picks!
