Top Ten Tuesday #22: Top 10 Creepy Books to Read for Halloween!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
So today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is a Halloween Freebie and I chose my top 10 creepy books to read for Halloween, which includes both children's books and adult books!
So, here's my top 10 Creepy Books to Read for Halloween (in no particular order).
1. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
This is like the darker and edgier version of "Alice in Wonderland" and it's a fantastic book that every young horror fan should check out!
2. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Another creepy book from the imaginative mind of Neil Gaiman! This book seriously has some of the most dangerous and intense monsters ever created!
3. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Being raised by ghosts? Who could not love a book that has that theme as apart of the book!
4. The Gruesome Guide to World Monsters by Judy Sierra
A fantastic little book for children and adults who love reading about different monsters around the world and how to avoid them!
5. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
This old time classic is definitely worth reading aloud during Halloween time!
6. American Vampire by Scott Snyder
This is a fantastic graphic novel series that truly shows the scary side of vampires!
7. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz
Awesome, awesome series of spooky stories that will easily terrify both adults and children for many years!
8. Halloween ABC by Eve Merriam
Probably one of the spookiest children's books that deal with learning your ABCs in a creepy way!
9. Boris and Bella by Carolyn Crimi
Two ghoulish characters who don't like each other is seriously one book you should check out!
10. Cinderella Skeleton by Robert D. San Souci
An awesome retelling of the classic "Cinderella" story with a spooky twist!
