Top Ten Tuesday | All Hallow’s Eve and All the Spooky and Creepy Reads!!


Hey, hey happy reader friends. Today’s another Tuesday which equals another round of Top Ten Tuesday meme-ing – this time around, it’s sporting a spooky vibe.

Anyone who’s read this blog for any length of time knows I don’t celebrate All Hallow’s Eve. Since I already talked (overmuch??) about my October 31st aka Halloween non-celebratory feelings, in my latest Booktube Talk post, we’ll leave that thought there.

Instead, let’s focus on ALL THE BOOKS!! Because, let’s face it, don’t we all enjoy a mysterious read now and again if not a spooky one? I know I do. In fact, most of the time I tend to read more mysteries this time of year – or maybe that’s simply the fault of publishing houses since they publish more of the genre this time of year. (Or is that just me who thinks this?) No matter what, there’s always plenty of mystery reads on my shelf and TBR.

Let’s take a look at some mysterious – both cozy and white-knuckle, and spooky reads.

1. Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Antsey | As so many books are on my Top Ten Tuesday lists, this is another one I haven't read... but it's one I've intended to read , so much so that I've added it to my shelf. Now I just have to crack open its pages. Amazon | Goodreads

2. Everneath by Brodi Ashton | Since I read one of Brodi's contemporary novels, I'm all the more curious to read this one. The supernatural themes isn't always my genre, but it still intrigues me. Amazon | Goodreads

3. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo | Why did I add Wonder Woman? I don't know except that it feels somehow like a really good autumn read... and likely, it does boast some white-knuckle moments! Amazon | Goodreads

4. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman | Since my YA historical reading is slim, one of the ways I'd like to improve on that is to read this one! It sounds so good. Amazon | Goodreads


5. Jane Steele by Lindsay Faye | Yet anther one I should read and haven't. Amazon | Goodreads

6. Bewitching by Alex Flinn | It surprises me how well I like this book (and character!!). We first meet Kendra in the novel Beastly, so when it was announced that she'd have her own story, I was shocked. Amazon | Goodreads
  
7. There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins | Horror is NOT my genre, but I do adore Stephanie Perkins as an author, so my hope for this one is a cautiously optimistic thought. Amazon | Goodreads

8. Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Politano Davidson | Reading this one now, and so far, it's amazing. I love the intrigue and the "period drama" appeal of its historical setting. Dear BBC, let me introduce you to your next production. Amazon | Goodreads

9. Jackaby by William Ritter | A "copy and paste" scenario (as what I've said of the rest of the books on this list) can also be said of this book. Amazon | Goodreads

10. Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson | This one has sat on my shelf for a looong time, and it remains one of the most interesting reads I'd like to read; it tells a story about a girl who  Amazon | Goodreads

  1. There's Someone Inside Your House actually does look interesting, even though that isn't my normal genre.
    I'm hoping to get a copy of Lady Jayne Disappears here soon.;)
    So many good choices!

    1. It's not my normal genre either, Amanda. In fact, I'm cautiously optimistic about it and hear it's more "mystery" than overtly "creepy," so... here's hoping!!

      YAY! Hope you enjoy 'Lady Jayne.' I'm really liking it so far. :)

      Thanks, as always, for visiting.

  2. Hey,

    Bewitching seems really interesting! I've never really celebrated Halloween so I don't really get into the vibe very much.

    1. It is interesting! I'm surprised how well I liked the story. :)

      Same! I don't celebrate Halloween either, but once in a while, I DO like watching a Gothic period drama.

      You too. Have a great week; appreciate you stopping by - thanks!! :)

  3. I'm looking forward to reading Stephanie Perkin's new book. I can highly recommend Brodi Ashton's Everneath series. I loved it!

    1. YAY! I'm so glad to know Brodi's series is good. I really liked her recent contemporary, so I'm curious to discover this supernatural series. :)

      Me too! Hope we both like Stephanie's latest.

      Glad you visited, as always - thanks, Chrissi.

  4. Wonder Woman was a great book. This month I`ve finally read my first Agatha Christie novels and I loved them. Will definitely finish the Hercule Poirot series.

    1. YAY! I'm so glad, Carmen. I cannot wait to read Wonder Woman; it's getting all the praise heaped on it, so I'm certainly intrigued.

      I should have added 'Orient Express' to my list because I'd REALLY like to read that one prior to seeing the new film. Glad to know you liked Agatha Christie. :)

      Thanks, as always, for visiting!

  5. I think Warbringer is a pretty good autumnal read - perfect for dark nights and being tucked up all safe and warm while you read.
    Great list!

    1. 'Prisoner' has been on my shelf for a long time, Jo, but I'm hoping it'll be worth the wait. It sounds SO interesting, plus that cover?! It "screams" perfect-fall-read. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting!

  7. Halloween's always been a favorite holiday of mine. Although, it could be because it's a state holiday in these parts. :D Getting off school for any holiday makes it 100000x better, right?

    Excellent list, I'm going to have to check some of these out now.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  8. Wonder Woman does seem like an autumn read. I actually just one an ARC and it's the perfect season to start.

    1. YAY! Hope you enjoy, Alicia. I don't know if I'll like this one, but it's a book I simply *had* to buy a copy of, so we'll see what the story is like inside. :)
