T5W: Top Halloween Recommendations

Top 5 Wednesday!

Top 5 Wednesdays is hosted by Ginger Reads Lainey and you can find the goodreads page here.

This week is Top 5 Halloween Recommendations. I ended up going with books that aren't necessarily Halloween, but more so just creepy books in general.

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich



I was never really sure what to think what exactly was going on with this story. Was it a demon? Or, Was it just split personalities? I'm not sure I will ever know.





Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo


I have read the 1st and the 4th book in this series. Both books were equally creepy. They follow murders and how they happened and don't really sugarcoat much at all. 






Escape from Eden by Elisa Nader


This isn't probably going to be what most people consider to be a typical Halloween recommendation as it's not, really about anything fictionally creepy or about murderers. Instead, this book covers a dystopian type society based around a religious cult. When you start really think about what happened in this book it is pretty scary.






This whole series can be used for pretty much every holiday from now until after Christmas. I'll try not to use it a lot though. I choose this specific book though because there is an actual Halloween night in it.





Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith 


This book isn't super scary or anything like that. But it is about vampires and history and was very interesting and actually somewhat believable. Which I think is hard to do when changing history a little bit.






That was my Top 5 Halloween Recommendations. I tried to do a mixture of scary and some not so scary as well. What do you Recommend for Halloween reads?

  1. I've heard such mixed things about The Dead House but it definitely intrigues me! Will have to see if my local library has a copy!
