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
- 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.
- 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.
- How about a classic scary story for a change. Vampires are classic Halloween monsters and this is the book that started it all.
- 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.
- 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.
- This was a fun listen about grim reapers. More funny than scary but still fitting for the season.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
