Top Ten Tuesday #5

This is an meme from The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers.

Top Ten Books for Halloween

1. The Phantom Of The Opera:  This is a really great gothic horror romance. Not quite as scary as Dracula, but still a great Halloween read. Plus Erik (The Phantom) is one of my favorite characters of all time.

2. Dracula: This is "the" vampire book. All other vampires pale beneath him...or sparkle...and can I just say again, VAMPIRES DON'T SPARKLE!!!!!!

3. It: As if clowns weren't scary enough, Stephen King makes them more terrifying. Actually any classic Stephen King novel will do here.

4. R.L. Stine's Fear Street Series:  A Tween Series yes, but still quite scary.

5. John Saul - Suffer The Children:  No joke, this one gave me nightmares!

6. My Sweet Audrina: V.C. Andrews written by V.C. Andrews = creepy. Anything ghost written is horrid and a discredit to her wacky writing.

7.  Clive Barker - The Damnation Game: This was one of the first horror novels I read back between high school and college. Clive writes some pretty scary stuff.

8. Coraline: Its kids creepy care of Neil Gaiman...The Graveyard Book is another good kid's story.

9. Heck: Where The Bad Kids Go: Not really scary..but it is about the many circles of Heck!

10. Interview With The Vampire: Best vampire fiction aside from Dracula!! No sparkles!!!

How could I have forgotten Phantom of the Opera?! It is definitely an awesome Gothic story, and unlike the movie it's legitimately creepy.

I am totally with you about the vampires. They do not sparkle!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
