Top Ten Books to Get Into the Halloween Spirit
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz – Who remembers this book?! I remember reading it to my brother and freaking myself out! To this day we still talk about how this book traumatized us as children! I need to find these at the library VERY SOON.
Goosebumps series by R.L. Stein – Who didn’t read this series as a kid? Welcome to Dead House? Night of the Living Dummy? STILL SCARED OF THEM.
Carrie by Stephen King – We are reading this now for Book Club at the high school and it is FREAKING ME OUT. I can’t deal with those thrillers that get into your head ::shiver::
Grimm’s Grimmest by Maria Tatar – Haven’t you always wanted to read the real story behind Cinderella or Snow White? This book reminds you that Grimm’s Fairy Tales started off as tales fit for adults and not children.
The Witches by Roald Dahl – Ahh possibly my favorite Roald Dahl book. Not too scary but a fun way to get into Halloween nonetheless.
