Top Ten Spooky Reads

This weeks theme was actually a Halloween freebie. I both love and hate freebies. When I have an amazing idea for it its great but when my mind goes blank as to what to do it makes a hard list harder haha. So this week I am going to talk about the top 5 spooky books I have read, and the top 5 spooky books I want to read.

 Top 5 Spooky Books I Have Read:

1. You by Caroline Kepnes. Being inside Joes head was truly a spooky experience.

2. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice. I don’t remember how scared I was while reading this book, but the end of it caused me so much emotional distress that I bawled my eyes out, never picked it or any of the rest of the books up again.

3. The Passage by Justin Cronin. While I don’t like zombies as genre, I did like this book and when I get over how angry the ending made me I do want to finish off the trilogy.

 

 

 

 

4. The Archived by Victoria Schwab. It took me a moment to get into it but I really enjoyed it. I didn’t realise it was considered a horror.

5. The Dogs by Allen Stratton. I think this is literally every single horror book I have ever read.

Top 5 Spooky Books I Want To Read:

1. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes. Back in the day when I bought the book I read the first two pages and was instantly hooked but made myself put it down before I read anymore because at the time I didn’t have a moment to actually read it and I have never picked it back up. Hopefully sometime soon.

2. The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. I love the movies and really want to do the book. This is technically the second book but everyone knows what series I am talking about if I mention this one.

3. Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill. I know nothing but it has been on my shelf longer than I can remember.

 

 

 

 

4. Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. This has only been on my shelves for a few years I think but I still don’t really know anything about it. The blurb on the back has been enough for it to remain on my shelves even after some culling.

5. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. An oldie but I hear its amazing.

 

 

 

 

Be sure to share your lists! I haven’t really read that many spooky books so I would love some recommendations for Halloween reads.

Top Ten Tuesday – Liked Books I Don’t Remember

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish, but has now been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Books I Liked But Don’t Remember Very Much

I would like to thank Goodreads and my Reviewed and Rated list for helping me to remember the books I have read and forgotten about.

1. Every Day by David Levithan. This one easy takes first place for me because I have read it twice in a span of a couple of months, but only because I completely forgot I had ready read it. It wasn’t until I was already a little bit of the way through that I remembered. I enjoyed it both times though hahaha.

2. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. Excluding the first three and the one I didn’t like I don’t remember pretty much anything that happens in any of them, but according to my reviews I liked them. IM part of the way through number 10 and I remember nothing.

3. Keeping Her by Cora Carmack. I remember Losing It and I loved that, but for some reason this one just left my brain.

4. Ever Near by Melissa MacVicar. Literally nothing. It was about ghosts maybe?

 

 

 

 

5. The Perks of Being Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This one is on the list for a bit of a different reason. I feel like I remember a good amount of it, but I remember not liking it. Then I look at my review and rating and apparently I liked it?

6. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I read this one not long ago but I still could not remember enough detail to write a full review. I remember the ending and some parts but I couldn’t remember the clearly enough.

7. Whats Left of Me by Kat Zhang. I really need to reread this book so I can finish of the rest of the series.

 

 

 

 

8. The Dogs by Allan Stratton. Apparently ones about ghosts leave my mind. I think this book has ghost dogs in it.

9. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I have been wanting to reread this one for the longest time cause I know everyone thinks its amazing but for some reason I never wrote a review and then I didn’t pick up the other ones because I didn’t write a review and now I remember nothing.

10. The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry. I remember being so very pleasantly surprised while reading this book by how much I loved it but I cannot for the life of me remember why I loved it.

 

 

 

 

It disturbs me how easy this list was for me to make.
