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!

  1. No surprise you have some of Neil's books! He's awesome. I have several of the Scary Stories books and they are scary good too:)

    1. Yeah! Neil Gaiman writes some awesome scary books and I've always loved the Scary Stories series!

  2. I haven't read any of the books on your list, but I'm definitely intrigued! Great list! :)

  3. I loved both Coraline and The Graveyard Book! Definitely fantastic for this time of year. And oh my gosh, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark... that's my childhood right there. I'd love to see if they're just as scary today. :)
