Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a Halloween freebie! I didn’t have enough time to really brainstorm a topic, so I thought I’d just update a theme I did a few years ago — horror novels on my to-read list that I really do need to get around to reading! Some of these are upcoming new releases, and some are books that have been around a while:
Have you read any of these? Which one should I read first?
What’s on your Halloween TTT this week? Share your link, please, and I’ll come check out your top 10!

Good job! I’m not into scary, but these raised hairs on the back of my neck just looking at them.
I like horror, although typically more creepy than bloody… I like looking at all of these and getting the shivers!
Good timing! 😉
If I can’t focus on horror right before Halloween, then when can I? 🙂
What great covers.
I love creepy covers!
Firestarter was excellent. Hope you like it!

I’ve read a ton of King books over the years, but that’s one I’ve missed!
I haven’t read any of these; I’m not much into proper ‘horror’ reads but do like reading slightly scary stories or ones with a gothic vibe. What Moves the Dead does look interesting though.
I love that cover, and the author is so talented!
The cover for What Moves the Dead is beautiful! Creepy, yes, but also so striking. Amazing set of covers.
I agree, it’s a beautiful (and disturbing) cover!
Great list! If you only read three of these, definitely start with The Phlebotomist, You Let Me In and The Last House on Needless Street:-)
I do want to read all three! I know I have The Last House already, so hopefully soon!
Great list! I love the cover of What Moves the Dead and I’ve heard so many good things about The Hunger.
I’ve been wanting to read The Hunger for a while now! My daughter did a school report on the Donner Party years ago, and ever since it’s been a favorite topic of ours, so to have a horror story set then sounds amazing.
Great list! Firestarter is a good one. And so is The Hunger. 🙂
I’ve been meaning to read Firestarter for ages now!
Firestarter is on my list too. I can’t wait to get to it, it seems like one of his popular books!
I’ve heard it’s great! I’ve read a lot of his early books, but that’s one I somehow missed.
I am eagerly awaiting my library hold of The Last House on Needless Street. I also want to try some T. Kingfisher. Hope you enjoy all these!
T. Kingfisher is amazing! She wrote two of the creepiest books I’ve read in recent years!
Ooh, which ones?? I have been trying to figure out where to start.
The Twisted Ones and The Hollow Places — they’re both so disturbing and inventive!
I hope you enjoy these when you get the chance! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
I probably wouldn’t read any of these books, but the cover for The Phlebotomist is stunning.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
I agree — I love the color and design!
I’ve read Firestarter and The Hunger. Firestarter isn’t my favorite King novel. I loved The Hunger. I hope you enjoy all these!
So I have to ask – what IS your favorite King book? 🙂 I’ve read a lot, but with 60+ books out there, there still are plenty left for me to read.
