Jan's Top Ten Book to Read During Halloween

Tuesday, October 25, 2011


In keeping with Halloween this week's Top Ten List hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is all about getting your scare on. While my list has several books I have also listed a few short stories that are great reads for this time of year.

Morpheus Road:The Light by DJ MacHale: A truly suspenseful tale with a great protagonist this one is also a fantastic audio book and will have you reading with the lights on.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff: Creepy with lots of great atmosphere. The setting is almost as amazing as the characters.
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson: Loved the story and the connection with Jack the Ripper.


Nevermore by Kelly Creagh: Want a little romance while you are getting your scare on than this one has it and lots more.

The Dead Boys by Royce Buckingham: Lots of ghost and a very evil boy eating tree this one is short enough to read in on Halloween night, but long on the fright-o-meter.
Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver: While this doesn't have the creep factor of any of the others ones I have listed, it is long on story and fearing the worse for the protagonists. A really fantastic story.

Pemba's Story: A Ghost Story by Marilyn Nelson and Tonya C. Hegmin: Based on research with an actual eye witness, this one is also a book that can be read in one night and has you jumping at shadows.
The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allen Poe: It's Poe enough said.
"The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe: Ditto of the above.
"The Monkey's Paw" by William Wymark: Very suspenseful and while it is easy to predict what is coming, this is one heck of a masterful short story and perhaps the first zombie tale. Great read-aloud next to a fire for effect.
