Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I’ve always loved fantasy, and while I don’t always say I’m a horror fan, fantasy and horror are pretty similar genres. I practically grew up on Stephen King novels — the old ones like Firestarter and The Dead Zone. I think some of the best children’s books, like The Wizard of Oz, are the scariest ones. I think that’s because in a well-written book, fear is a journey. It’s not just ghosts and goblins, it’s facing challenges and building strength and finding out something new about yourself. Scary stories take us out of our own lives and let us experience fear in a non-threatening way.
So, here’s to Halloween, and here are ten books (or authors) to put you in a Halloween kind of mood.
I’m sure I’ve missed some good ones! What are your favorite Halloween reads?
Happy Halloween and please join me this weekend for the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop! I’ll be giving away a couple of new or nearly new books I’ve recently reviewed.
