Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Top Ten Books To Get In The Halloween Spirit.
I’m not sure I can make it to ten this week, since I can’t really think of many Halloween books that I have read, but I shall give it a try.
- It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown by Charles M. Schulz. While I have to admit the video of this is better than the book it’s still something I think of around Halloween time. Can’t wait to read this to my son but also to have him watch it on T.V. so he too can enjoy it.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker. Not much need of an explanation here. It’s a classic and the best part is the vampires don’t sparkle. A must read for Halloween time.
- Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Yet another classic that is a must read for this time of year.
- It by Stephen King. A story about a clown, a scary, scary clown. While I haven’t read the entire book yet, it’s huge and I haven’t had much time for reading the last two weeks, it still gives me the willies and thus is a great Halloween book.
- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. I read this years ago and it definitely comes to mind every time Halloween rolls around.
- Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. I only just started reading this book but it definitely has that scary feel to it. Hopefully it will not disappoint, but I’m adding it here because at this point I think it deserves to be listed. Plus it happens in a town that’s about four hours from where I live and visit frequently, how cool is that.
- Goosebumps by R.L. Stine. I remember reading a lot of these as a kid and it was really my first look at scary stories. Granted they weren’t exactly scary but I do remember enjoying them.
Well I almost made it to ten. The thing is I tend to watch more scary stuff than read it, that’s something I need to change in the future. So what do you read to get in the Halloween spirit?
