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!
