Happy Halloween, everyone! Today, in order of this spooky day, I will be reviewing my top 3 spookiest reads. They’re probably not very spooky due to the fact I have a paranoid brain and would legit scare myself with Ghost Hunters. Yes, Ghost Hunters – the show with a bald-headed man and the question that was routinely asked every two seconds, “Did you hear that?”
No, Mr. No-Hair, I did not hear that nor will I ever.
Still, nonetheless, I would scurry past a darkened doorway, literally run down the hallway at night to get to the safety of my room, only to worry about the possibly ghosts that may live under my bed and steal the socks off my feet. Thank you, Ghost Hunters. Thank you, creepy books.
Therefore, I did not read too many scary books because who knew what my paranoid brain would do. Would it be even more traumatizing then the time my Sims died in a stove fire? Or the time I vaguely watched The Ring out of the corner of my eye for the whole two hours?
These books didn’t quite do that to me, but they would still be my scariest reads. Check out my thoughts on them today, and have a very happy Halloween everyone! Hopefully you get your fill of tricks and treats – and a heck of a lot of candy!
My Top 3:
- Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz
- Slasher Girls and Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke
- Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Another spooky read: And the Trees Crept In and In the Shadow of Blackbirds.
If you’re also looking for a middle grade ghost story, Wait Till Helen Comes kept me awake for weeks as a child. My poor sensibilities.
What is the creepiest story that you’ve ever read? Was there a book that’s kept you awake a night – for the bad reason?
