Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Scary Books I’d Like To Read (But Probably Won’t)


So it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and The Bookish, and this week’s theme is a Halloween freebie. I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to scary books, so a list of the books I’d like to read but probably never will seemed a good idea! (No fancy pictures this week though- I’m typing on my phone while on the bus and just no.)

1. The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley

2. IT by Stephen King

3. The Magic Cottage by James Herbert

4. Haunted by James Herbert

5. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

6. Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

7. Pet Sematary by Stephen King

8. The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

9. The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson.

10. The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty.

I own two of the books on that list and my parents own most of the rest, but I still don’t think I’ll ever read them! How about you? Have you read any of them or are you a wuss like me? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Yep! It doesn’t help that my dad used to tell me they were far too scary for me to read (I mean, I probably was far too young at the time). Maybe I’ll manage some of them in the summer when there are long, bright days to chase away the scariness!


  1. It is exceptionally well-written. I though it turned less creepy as it went, or rather, the creepiness became secondary to everything else in the book (the recent movie didn’t get this across at all; the movie pretty much took only the showiest bits from the novel!)
