This week is the last week of October. Since Halloween is on a Sunday this year, we get a full weekend of spooky reading. I wanted to highlight some of the wonderful things I have been seeing people read in case you need inspiration for your week’s reading. And, since it is Top Ten Tuesday, I am going to use this week’s Halloween Freebie to highlight my top-ten places to find a great scary book to read this week.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. I participate in a very hap-hazard manner but the lists are fantastic. Literally all the ones I have seen this week have given me Halloween love! Make sure and check them all out.
TOP TEN (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER)
Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction has participated in Frighteningly Good Reads for years and I have come to rely on her for all my spooky NonFiction needs. I am loving her post with Unbelievable and The Zodiac Killer but also would count cult leaders as FGR and her post on Cultish and Slonim Woods is calling to me! I am (embarrassingly) intrigued by cults. I couldn’t even make it through a tour of a sorority so I feel safe from the call of a cult. That makes it the perfect amount of scary for me.
Ryan @ Muse with Me is also a frequent participant of FGR. Ryan has been doubly busy lately with other-than-book-reading endeavors but his site is absolutely perfect if you need a graphic novel or terrifying tale as Ryan reads these all year long. Check out the fantastic review of Hellboy: The God Machine or Axiom’s End.
Classy X Book Reviews is doing a whole month of Blogtober. I am loving the everyday posting but my recent favorites are If you Like This then Read That post and the For the Wolf review which looks amazing.
This fantastic round up of Halloween picture books from Erin @ Cracker Crumb Life.
The City of Ghosts book review from Beth @ The Books are Everywhere. I finished this book this past weekend and I agree with all Beth’s thoughts! (I know, I need to write my own thoughts, but if you are curious about the book, she reviewed already!)
Meena @ Strawberrys Corner review of R.L. Stine’s Second Evil. There is never a bad time to read Stine.
Tell me, please! What is your favorite part of Halloween?
