Top Ten Tuesday (28) : Ten Books To Read for Halloween Time

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a Halloween freebie one, yay! I think it’s one of the first freebies I’m doing, so I hope it’ll turn out okay. Today, I picked out some books that are, for me, books to read if you’re looking to get scared a bit. If you want to be looking over your shoulder, or looking at others in a weird way, only to realize that well, you’re not in that book anymore, you’re in the real world. Yes, just like that.

1 • The Mara Dyer Series, Michelle Hodkin

I know, I’m a big fan of this series, so I manage to talk about it, well, a lot. If you haven’t read it, PLEASE DO SO. These books are perfect if you want to be scared, freaked out, and have your mind blown.

2 • The 5th Wave, Rick Yancey

Okay, if you’re asking me, I did have some issues, at first, with this story, I have to admit that I felt freaked out while reading it. I don’t want that to happen, so I’m gonna go hide right now.

3 •  More than this, Patrick Ness

Another book I absolutely LOVED. Patrick Ness, I need all of your books right now. I think he painted such a chilling story of the world. And it’s one I can totally see happening.


4 • They all fall down, Roxanne St Claire

In a different genre, They All Fall Down certainly takes you in one hell of a ride. The intrigue, the mystery, and the atmosphere of the story kept me on the edge a little bit. Perfect for Hallowee-time!

5 • Truth or Dare, Jacqueline Green

Looking over your shoulder, wondering what’s happening, who’s there, who’s doing this…Truth or dare is this kind of book that keeps you guessing, wondering, lost in dark corners and strange notes. A great read!

6 • The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

A popular choice, here we go again! I have to say that I find this story kind of scary. Because the author based it on two very real things in this world. And because I can see it coming, happening. Perfect if you’re looking to get the chills.


7 • The Goosebumps series, R. L. Stine

I read a LOT of books from this series, a while ago, but I find it fitting this theme perfectly. I probably wouldn’t get scared as much as I did before while reading this, but I’m sure they still make a perfect Halloween read!

8 • Marina, Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I don’t know if you guys are familiar with this story. I read it a while ago, too, but I was hooked right from the start. Mystery lovers, you’re in for a treat, please pick that up!

9 • Get Even, Gretchen McNeil

If you’re looking for a mysterious story, one that keeps you guessing and wondering, well this book is perfect for you. And for this theme, too: it won’t keep you from sleeping at night, but it will keep your brain from resting a bit, and certainly will make you look over your shoulder.

10 • The Originals, Cat Patrick

This is a story about triplets. They’re not evil, they’re no Chucky or anything like that. But they’re different, and that’s what makes this book chilling. Why, you’ll have to read to find out!

Did you read any of those books? Which ones would you add to this list? Let me know everything in comments! 🙂

  1. We have some similar books on our lists. I’ve got some Goosebumps on my TTT too. Some of them were so terrifying back then! They All Fall Down has a really creepy cover, I might have to check that one out. It’s like Pretty Little Liars gone wrong, haha.

    1. I was scared to pick it up, too, let me reassure you!. The story is really chilling, and it’s even more scary as it keeps you guessing every single page about what’s going on. But that’s what makes this story so powerful and unforgettable! You should try it sometimes, and maybe read in the comfort of your bed, haha 🙂

      1. Well, I guess it depends, haha. I found it very creepy, to be honest. It’s not ‘there’s a zombie attack and we’re all going to die’ scary, if I might say, it’s more really of a ‘I have no idea what’s happening and what’s going to happen and my heart is gonna explode’ kind of feeling, haha! 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

      2. Tbh that’s the worst kind of scary for me haha. I’m pretty bad with zombies and chainsaws and blood but I’m even worse with things like ghosts. Just things that I can’t see or predict. It makes me super paranoid! I’ll still give the book a try though!
