There once was an awesome blogger named Ginger and she decided to create a super fun feature where fellow bloggers would answer fabulous questions via blog posts every Friday. TGIF was born and we all have Miss Ginger at GReads! to thank for that! This week’s question is:
Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?
I would like to think that I am a tough person who can handle scary books but in reality I am a big, big baby. However, I have managed to sneak in a few creepy books and by somewhat of a shock, I actually enjoyed them. The first couple are books that just really freaked me out. The rest are ones that have Halloween-ish elements in them (a.k.a. Paranormal books that I find to be totally, freaking awesome!!!)
Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith
I just read this one. HOLY FREAKING CREEPY!
The Dead of Summer by Camilla Way
I read this one over a year ago and I STILL think of how twisted that story is!
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Of course fighting off demons with swords can be considered a great Halloween read!
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
This is a book about a girl who can sense dead bodies, FREAKY!
Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks
This book is more of a love story but the main characters do spend quite a bit of time in the cemetary which is ALWAYS good for freaking people out.
Both of these books a million times YES! Everything about them shouts great Halloween read! Plus Ethan and Lena…I <3 those two!
The Childe by C.A. Kunz
This is the PERFECT book for this time of year. It definitely makes me think of one of those cool made for TV movies that ABC Family always has this time of year. It could totally be right up there with Hocus Pocus!
The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
I love me some Stacey Kade! You can’t have Halloween without a friendly little ghost (or in this case, a spoiled little ghost who wants things to go her way!)
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
I was so surprised by how much I loved this book that is based so heavily on Edgar Allen Poe. This story is dark, creepy, and twisted, what more could you want?!?
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
I don’t think this one has anything to do with this time of year but I think it is a phenomenal paranormal book!
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Oh yes, definitely a great paranormal book that is perfect for reading this time of year!
Released by Megan Duncan
Demon slaying people on the run? YES please!
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Oh how I love this book! Another great paranormal book that has NOTHING to do with Halloween but you should read anyway!
So what do you think? Are any of these on your list of books to read during Halloween time?
