Hello there everyone!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by those fine bloggers over at The Broke and Bookish!
So, this week’s official theme is Top Ten books to put you in the Halloween mood. That is a great theme, but I don’t usually do creepy books, so I’m calling this like it is. I’ll probably never read any of these titles because I’m a HUGE wimp when it comes to scary. This still amazes me because as a teenager in the mid-90s I used to devour R.L. Stein’s Fear Street books like they were covered in chocolate. Seriously. So, I guess I’ve gotten wimpier in my old age.
These are all books that I have heard awesome things about, so I assume they’re good reads, but I’m too much of a scaredy-cat!
I don’t care what this book is about. I’ve heard it’s awesome. But that title already has me way creeped out! I don’t want to be dressed in blood and I don’t know if Anna does either.
This cover is freaky. I don’t like super close up faces on covers…they creep me out. This cover, plus the titles, plus the summary….Sounds really, really scary!
This cover makes me think of the Sixth Sense. My students LOVE this series, but I just can’t bring myself to see what’s under that curtain.
This book isn’t even categorized as horror, I think it’s dystopian. I don’t even care, I can’t look at this super scary cover! It’s so disturbing! Again, I’ve heard it’s good though!
This one is about evil demonic beings that inhabit humans. It sounds super intriguing, but it also sounds super scary!
Okay, so I probably will read this one. I like Maureen Johnson’s books and I bought it at my school book fair, so I’ll try to read it even though I’m pretty sure it’s going to scare me.
Yeah, I’ll probably read this one too. It sounds very Agatha Christie, which I love, so even though it’ll probably freak the poop out of me, I’m most likely going to go for it!
I just know this book will give me nightmares. For reals.
The cover. Do I have to say more?
I want to read this book so bad. I even promised I would last year…I didn’t. And it’s because I’m too afraid.
So there you have it. These are all books that I’ve heard good things about, but am scared to read because I’m a humongous wimp when it comes to all things creepy. Have you read any of these? Are there some I need to just buck-up and read?
