Top Ten Tuesday #9

This week topic is:-
Top Ten Books To Read  To Get In The Halloween Spirit
This is a weekly event created by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers post a new "Top Ten" list for the particular week's topic. This week topic is in no particular order.

Slight Change to Top Ten Horror/Thriller Books on my TBR List

Australians don't actually celebrate Halloween. Its quite a weird festival anyway and I cannot say I like it - no offence to Americans! Its just an American thing that I don't feel like we should copy.
   1. A Monster Calls (Patrick Ness)
Nightmares coming to life? This sounds intriguing! I have heard so much buzz about it and nothing but compliments.

2. Devil Let Me Go (Nathan Robinson) 

I really loved Nathan Robinson's Starers so I really want to give this one a go too.

3. Ten (Gretchen McNeil)
The cover and description reminds me of the television program show Alcatraz. The premise sounds so creepy and amazing. Definitely high on my TBR and wishlist lists!

4. The Name of the Star (Maureen Johnson) 

A Jack the Ripper retelling? Colour me intrigued already.

5. Dark Places (Gillian Flynn)

I read but didn't enjoy Gone Girl so I am hoping that this will be better. It is supposedly gritty, raw and quite "filthy". A perfect thriller for this time of year.

6. In the Shadows of Blackbirds (Cat Winters)

One of the highest rated book among my GR friends. Everyone loves this one. Definitely need to pick it up. Plus look at the cover! *shivers* I love it though.

 7. Mice (Gordon Reece)

This book has been on my radar for ever and ever. I cannot believe I still haven't read it...

A weird one, I know, but it looks interesting. I love the cover.

9. Doll Bones (Holly Black)

This book sounds right u my alley. I am not a huge fan of horror at the best of times but middle grade horror is always so well done.

 10. Thirteen (Tom Hoyle)
Love the sound of this but I am going to be honest and say that this only got my attention because it is one of the coolest looking books I have ever seen. The spine is yellow and has all this black text on it. I adore it!


  1. These books all sound creepy, although I haven't gotten the chance to read any of them. I've heard so many good things about 'A Monster Calls' and it's been on my TBR shelf forever! Great choices (:

    1. Thanks Morrighan! I know, I cannot wait to pick some of them up. I most excited about "Thirteen" but "A Monster Calls" is also one I am very excited for.

  2. These sound like some pretty creepy reads! I can't wait to read Ten myself, and try Gone Girl even though my family members really didn't like it. Nice list :3

    1. Thanks Olivia! I cannot wait to read Ten either. I heard such good things about it... Yeah, I wasn't a fan of Gone Girl either. Maybe you'll have more luck...? :)
