Top Ten Tuesday: Spooky Season

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

October 25: Halloween related freebie

Some people llloooovvveeee this time of year.  The crisp nights, pumpkin everything, the decorations, spooky stories, trick or treating (candy).  Frankly I can take it or leave it.  I enjoy some of the bats, vamps, and pumpkin flavored goodies.  Scary stories in print or on-screen, however, are not my cup or tea.  I don’t like blood and guts or being scared.  I don’t do situations I can’t control.  So for this week’s list I am going to pick some of the spooky, maybe not scary, stories that still fit into the spirit of the Halloween season.

Ten books for the Halloween Season

  1. Ruined (Ruined, #1)  A good ol’ Ghost story is up first.  This one is set in New Orleans and is a YA read.  It covers the basis if you are looking for this type of spooky story.
  2. Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries, #1) How about a zombie tale.  This one is another YA level read and is one of the very few zombie stories I have read, not really a fan of the whole theme…  This one is good though, give it a shot.
  3. Dracula How about a classic scary story for a change.  Vampires are classic Halloween monsters and this is the book that started it all.
  4. Cycle of the Werewolf Another classic monster for this time of year, the Werewolf.  Also what kind of list would this be without something from the master of scary stories the King himself.
  5. The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus Looking for something seriously scary and real?  Then I highly recommend this one about the true story of how the Ebola virus started. Truly frightening.
  6. A Dirty Job (Grim Reaper, #1) This was a fun listen about grim reapers.  More funny than scary but still fitting for the season.
  7. The Grownup This was a short little read that was pretty creepy and left you wondering.  Perfect if you don’t want to commit yourself to a longer read.
  8. The Passage (The Passage, #1) Like this one…  If you are sick and tired of the hunky sexy vampire trend then give this one a try.  The vamps in this book are the true monsters of old.
  9. A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1) The vampire central to this story however is all kinds of yummy, however.  Quite a bit of this story centers around this time of year and perfect if you are looking for a witchy tale.
  10. California Going to finish the book with a post-apocalyptic dystopian that is a frightening glimpse of what might become of our society if we don’t change things and start taking care of those who are struggling in this country.
