Share it Please


Not everything has to be spooky and gore-y in order to qualify for a mood-appropriate Halloween read. 
So here are ten books that are all chilling in their own ways but by no means will spill guts and blood in your face while reading. You're welcome.




FORESHADOWED - Holly M. Campbell
Concept: a serial killer is planning to kill you and you're psychic, so you know he'll come. But one thing - your psychic abilities aren't very precise. Constant vigilance it is then. (Dec 2014, 48Fourteen) Goodreads

THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN - Holly Black
Who thought putting ALL vampires in a single enclosure was a good idea? Sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Reality in this one. (Sep 2013, Little Brown Books) Goodreads

LABYRINTH LOST - Zoraida Córdova
Bisexual witches are here to give you a tour of the land of the dead. (Sep 2016, Sourcebook Fire) Goodreads



THE FORBIDDEN GAME - L.J. Smith
Jumanji YA style. L.J. Smith is one of the pioneers of YA and this woman just knows what she's doing. This trilogy is absolutely terrifying and wonderful and swoony. (Jun 2016, Simon Pulse) Goodreads

DON'T LOOK BACK - Jennifer L. Armentrout
So you're found alone wandering in the woods, covered in blood. Next thing they tell you is that yout best friend disappeared. Do you want to know what happened that night? (Apr 2014, Disney Hyperion) Goodreads

UPROOTED - Naomi Novik
There's nothing more terrifying than a forest at night. Especially if that forest starts eating people. (May 2015, Del Rey) Goodreads




ABANDON - Meg Cabot
You can never go wrong with a good-old Persephone & Hades retelling. Even less so when it's a Goth Hades and a Latina Persephone. (May 2011, Macmillan) Goodreads

THE 5TH WAVE - Rick Yancey
I can't imagine anything more creepy than aliens taking over the planet and systematically eradicating humanity step by step.  (May 2013, G.P. Putnam's Sons) Goodreads

MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN - Ransom Riggs
This isn't scary-creepy this is more like... Addams family-creepy. With the movie coming up it's a safe tip to give it a shot! (Jun 2011, Quirk) Goodreads



ALIVE - Scott Sigler
Have you ever woken up alone in a coffin before? ... do you want to? (Jul 2015, Del Rey) Goodreads
