Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Halloween themed freebie--Top Ten Scary Books!!

*in no particular order


1. SLASHER GIRLS & MONSTER BOYS by Multiple Authors--this was a pretty creepy anthology! I really enjoyed it! It's actually in my Spooktacular Giveaway too!
2. TEN by Gretchen McNeil--I know not everyone liked this one, but I did. And it's creepy in that real life way. You know, you're stuck on an island and some psycho is killing everyone. Scary! LOL.
3. 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil--she's amazing at scary creepy books! This one involved doppelgangers and that's kinda terrifying itself! Especially when everyone you know thinks you're the monster and the monster is the real you!!

4. ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD by Kendare Blake--totally creepy! The title alone gives you chills!! The perfect creepy ghost story!
5. SWERVE by Vicki Pettersson--another real life creepy story! A woman doing the bidding of the psychopath who's holding her fiance hostage! 
6. THE DEAD HOUSE by Dawn Kurtagich--a totally bizarre (in a GOOD way!) and creepy read! Kind of involving multiple personalities and a totally separate lingering evil. This was a twisted read, yet spooky and delightful! 

7. DOOMED by Tracy Deebs--one of my previous Spooktacular giveaways because this read scared me so bad! And it's not that it's a "scary" read. But it was scary because this dude pretty much brings about an end of the world scenario and he did it using our technology. So yeah. SCARY!!!


8. DARK SHIMMER by Donna Jo Napoli--this one sounded creepy in that Gothic horror sense! Totally can't wait to read it!
9. BLOOD AND SALT by Kim Liggett--been hearing all sorts of good things on this one! Especially its creepy level!
10. DIARY OF A HAUNTING by M. Verano--read good things about this one too! Sounds like a creepy good read! The cover alone can give me nightmares! LOL!


  1. I'm not a big fan of Dorothy. Maybe I should read this version.

  2. That tease is funny! Not of a fan of scary book but I am digging your list.

  7. I love the cover of Blood and Salt! It's got such a creepy look to it!

    Alexis @ http://stayathomereader1022.blogspot.com/

  8. I'm thinking I should read "Dorothy Must Die" first. Good one. Here's my teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-Zp

  9. The more I hear about Dorothy must die, the more I want to read those books. Maybe some day. And I loved The Dead House, it's a great read for this time of year! My TTT

  10. I liked Ten too-I picked it up because of it being like a young adult version of And Then There Were None, which is one of my favorite books of all-time. I didn't love Ten, but I did like it-it was definitely creepy!

  11. Ohhh, great list! I'm super curious about Slasher Girls & Monster Boys! I must read it soon. :)

  12. I liked Anna Dressed in Blood too! I also realy want to read Blood and Salt. I was lucky enough to win a copy of Dead House from Goodreads, but who knows when it will actually arrive. You've got a great list of books this week. What I haven't read, I added to my TBR shelf. Happy Halloween and thanks for visiting my blog!

    And those books look very creepy, especially Anna Dressed in Blood! My TTT

  16. I just bought 3:59, I love Gretchen!!!

  17. Someday I really should try this series. Somehow it didn't catch my attention when it first came out. My YA teaser this week features The Anatomical Shape of the Heart by Jenn Bennett. Happy reading!

  18. Is this a twist on The Wizard of Oz? I'm curious!
    My Tuesday post features Shem Creek.

  19. So many interesting books in one post! :D
    The teaser may be the best one I've read so far today.

  20. I haven't read any of the books you've listed in your post this week. Quite a few of them sound really good, so I'll have to add them to me ever growing reading wishlist.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment on my TTT post this week. Happy Halloween!!

  21. The only one of these that I've actually read is Blood and Salt. Tho I can say I've seen a lot of them around. And are on my TBR. I still haven't read Dorothy Must Die eep! But your teaser has me needing (even more-so) to read this series. Great list!

  22. I'm a little bit over halfway through Slasher Girls and Monster Boys and I'm just not very impressed so far. I hope it gets a little creepier!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  23. All of these definitely look scary...too scary for me anymore! Great list!

  24. Haha! I love that quote from The Wicked Will Rise! All of those books are on my tbr. I've been meaning to read Ten for a while, especially. The Dead House is up soon, I can't wait! Great list! Happy Halloween!

  27. I love the cover for Diary of a Haunting. It's so creepy and wicked.

    Carrie @The Book Goddess

  28. Ahhh, the cover for Diary of a Haunting freaks me out! I'm not good with things on the ceiling. Just when I thought I'd recovered from scaring myself with my scary book list. *breathes into paper bag*.

    Here's my TTT. I feel I need to get involved with Teaser Tuesday too!

  29. Anna Dressed In Blood is perfect for Halloween! I love that book so much!
