Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
This weeks prompt is Halloween/Creepy Freebie. As this one was is a freebie, I have decided to split it up and do some of my Creepy Halloween Recommendations.
1) The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich. I LOVED this story. It is told in through Mixed media. Some of the entries is told through Diary entries others through video transcripts. It is such a creepy story told in a unique way, if you read one book for Halloween it should be this one.
2) The Call/The Invasion by Peadar OGuilin. This story is beyond creepy and gory and is so vividly narrated that it is perfect for a Halloween read. I recommend both, but even you could even just read the first book, and be pleased with the ending.
3) Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown. This book is perfect for someone looking for a quick and creepy read. This book has illustrations throughout, and they really amp up the storyline and make the pages fly.
4) Slasher Girls and Monster Boys by Various Authors. I am not completely finished with this anthology but so far, I am loving it. I would totally recommend this for the reader who isn't looking to commit to a series or an entire book. This book is filled with creepy stories that take no more than fifteen minutes to read.
5) I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. I know I have talked about this book a lot, but I really enjoyed them and think they are the perfect murder mystery for Halloween. However, this is a trilogy so it does take more commitment.
6) Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin. This steampunk-esque dystopian is a perfect read for Halloween.
7) Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge. This story is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. A VERY demented retelling. It has fighting, magic, and death. Thus making it a perfect read for the Halloween Season.
8) How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather. This book has it all: Magic, Witches, and Ghosts. This is the perfect read for a young adult reader looking for a little romance in their Halloween read.
9) Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George. This book is perfect for a History Buff. This book is set in 1890's Romania. I can't say too much as I do not want to give away the plot, but it would be a great Halloween read.
10) Caraval by Stephanie Garber. This story was such a ride. It had such a beautiful and intricate plot that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I chose this book to be in my Halloween recommendations due to the magic elements to the story.
