   It's Tuesday and today I'm participating in this awesome meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. The meme is created to share top 10 lists with fellow bloggers on bookish topics. Today's topic is books I think would be great reads for Halloween. Here they are my picks in no particular order:

Top 10 Great Halloween Reads

  1. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendra Blake- I recently finished this one and absolutely loved it. It's probably the best YA horror book I've read in a very long time.
  2. Dracula by Bram Stoker- I can't believe I never read this book considering how many paranormal books are on my reading list. I think it'll be very interesting to see how this cautionary tale and genre evolved.
  3. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury- A Halloween pick from the children's librarian at my local library. I have this one sitting on my shelf for a while and never read it.
  4. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff- This book has an extremely creepy cover. It's been on my tbr pile since last year.
  5. Dust and Frail by Joan Francis Turner- A great pick for zombies lovers, but I couldn't handle the blood and the gore. 
  6. Solitary: Escape from the Furnace #2 by Alexander Gordon Smith: An edge of your seat horror/ thriller series that will really appeal to middle school/teen boys and reluctant readers. I've read the first two books and really enjoyed them.
  7. The Dreaming by Queenie Chen- A three book, horror graphic novel series that revolves around dead boarding school students who disappear outside of campus.
  8. The Collector by John Fowles- I started this book in high school but it really creeped me out. I think I'll give it a second chance.
  9. Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman- I stumbled upon this book when I was compiling a book list and it sounds really good.
  10. The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey- I've heard great things about this series. I have it on my tbr pile, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

    I've been wondering about the Furnace books! Thanks for the heads up about them being good for reluctant readers. Thirteen Days to Midnight has been on my TBR forever, so I'm glad to see it made your list. Same for The Monstrumologist.

  4. Love your list - I've been wanting to read The Monstrumologist for a while too.

  5. Ooooh! Great picks! Do read The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. Fabulous, and it takes place during the right time of the year!

  6. Jenni Elyse Says:

    I haven't read anything on your list. But, I'm not surprised. ;) However, Anna Dressed in Blood and The Replacement made my list for books I'd like to read for some Halloween. :)

  7. I've heard amazing, amazing things about the Monstrumologist series. I'm totally looking forward to reading it, though I heard it's a gorefest!

  8. Lauren M Says:

    I definitely agree with you about Anna Dressed in Blood! It was SO good, and creepy at the same time! :)

  9. DT Says:

    You have a really unique list!

    I am new to your blog but I will be sure to follow you and check out your posts. I am a teacher too so I love that you recommend books that you think certain students will like!

    Great post!

  10. Jenny Says:

    Oh Ray Bradbury! I love his books, they were some of my favorites of the required reading we had to do in school:) Anna Dressed in Blood is definitely a perfect Halloween read, loved that one!

  11. I'd imagine that if I can't even read the titles of the books without shuddering that the book might be too scary for lil' ol' chicken me!
