#TopTenTuesday 20

 

top-10-tuesday

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.

  1. Godric’s Hollow reminds me of Harry Potter. Nice post, I have only read Peculiar Children, and I didn’t find it scary oe creepy, just plain weird.
