Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in which you make a list of ten to do with a certain topic. This weeks topic is“Top Ten Creepy Books I Want To Read”.
I’ve got to confess that I’m so easily scared it’s almost laughable. So I avoid anything creepy like the plague. Yet, there are a few creepy/scary books which have piqued my attention. I don’t know when I’ll get to these, but for now they’re sitting on my TBR pile.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
This was on my TBR for this month but I doubt I’ll get to it since there are only 7 days left in the month. I’m contemplating rolling this over onto my next month TBR too because I’ve owned a copy of this for the longest and I really do want to read it before I lose interest in the series.
You by Caroline Kepnes
Everyone seems to be reading this recently. Now this book isn’t scary but it’s narrated by a stalker who refers to his victim as ‘you’ which sounds very creepy/invasive. If I can get my hands on a copy I’ll read this one soon(ish).
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I’ve already watched the movie, which I really enjoyed. If I’m being honest, I really wish I’d read the book first because now I don’t think I’ll enjoy it as much as I would’ve if I didn’t know the twist. I do still want to give it a try but I’m in no rush to pick it up.
It by Stephen King
I remember back in secondary/high school my english teacher told us that if any of us read and finish this book he’d give us a reward. Me and my friend planned to read this together then but we never ended up getting around to it. I do want to read it soon because I read King’s The Shining which I enjoyed a lot more than I’d expected to. Maybe I shouldn’t read it right now though, with all those creepy clowns popping up.
Carrie by Stephen King
I watched the latest movie based of off this book and it had me curious about the book since people say the book was better. This is pretty short too so maybe I’ll read it eventually.
