Top 10 Tuesday: Best Halloween Reads

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by the fancy folk at The Broke and The Bookish

I had a lot of trouble narrowing this list down from 10,000 to 10. I thought about making it a least to most scary reads list, but ended up struggling with that since I gravitate to the scariest books possible. What I landed on though was 10 books which encompass various levels of scariness and focus on different nightmarish topics, and all are favourite reads of mine. There are vampires (3 actually), good vs evil epics, exorcisms, nihilistic dystopians, creative graphic novels, and violet-eyed witches. They're all fantastic well-written, well constructed and edge-of-your-seat reads. Some will break your heart, others will make you reevaluate your beliefs, and all will demand your full attention. Happy Halloween reading!
