Top Ten Books to Get You in the Halloween Spirit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Books to Get You in the Halloween Spirit
Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Though this one isn't that scary it does get you in a great Halloween mood!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
This one is so epic and the vampires are quite creepy!
Frankenstein (Penguin Classics)
Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
Frankenstein is one of most loved horror stories for a reason - not only is not creepy as hell but it mkaes you think too!
  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
This one is more of a suspense horror novel because there are none of the typical paranormal creatures, but it is really chilling!
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Nothing beats a classic!
666 Park Avenue (666 Park Avenue, #1)
666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce
I'm reading this right now and it's quite creepy!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austin and Seth Grahame-Smith
This one can get just outright gory and really freaky!
Witch Eyes (Witch Eyes, #1)
Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey
This one takes place where I live and I really hope our town doesn't have all the scary demons and witches as depicted in this book!
Velveteen (Velveteen, #1)
Velveteen by Daniel Marks
A purgatory revolution, a psychopath killer, and all the gory details, Velveteen is damn terrifying!
Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
This one is scary enough to make grown men run behind their mother's legs in fright. SUPER SCARY!


  1. Alice in Zombieland! How could I forget that? Lol. Great list! :D

    Here my Top 10

  2. The cover for Pride, Prejudice & Zombies is so creepy! I loved Anna Dressed in Blood. Awesome list.
