Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a Halloween freebie.
Since I haven’t read too many scary books, I’m gonna do a mix of eerie/scary settings and books would make for great reads this time of year.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller- Written about the Salem Witch Trials, and in my opinion, a must read this time of year.
The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne- I remember reading the Great Illustrated Classics edition of this when I was younger. It contains supernatural elements and witchcraft.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs- Some of the images in this book are quite creepy, but so isn’t the thought of an abandoned orphanage.
Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty- This book is mysterious, but not in a creepy way, still, a good mystery is always good this time of year.
Bittersweet by Beverly Miranda-Whittemore- While this book does take place in the summer, mysteries are solved and secrets are discovered.
The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis- This is another book that contains a mystery, and lots of secrets concerning events that happened years ago.
Little Hangleton Graveyard- This graveyard is the final resting place of the Riddle Family, and it is extremely eerie.
The Dark Forest- “But there are werewolves in there,” there’s a lot of other things in the forest too.
The Black Lake- The mermaids make this lake so damn creepy, and they are beautifully creepy themselves.
Godric’s Hollow- There is a sense of eeriness I get when reading about Godric’s Hollow.
