Happy (almost) Halloween!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a Halloween freebie!

I’ve decided to focus on great books to scare or give the willies. To mix things up, I’m highlighting five books that I’ve read, and five from my TBR list:

Icky, squicky, creepy, scary books that I’ve read (with links to my reviews):

The Dead Lands by Benjamin Percy (review)

Breed by Chase Novak (review)

Creepy, chilling, horrifying-sounding books that I really want to read:

  1. Ohh good choices on your list! The Girl with All the Gifts is great. Bird Box is on my TBR, Horrorstör sounds good and I am about to start The Book of Dead Days by Marcus Sedgwick, so I might give A Love like Blood a read afterwards! Great Top 10. Here’s my TTT.
