Top Ten Creepy Books for Halloween

Max here! Right in time for Halloween, here are a couple of books to make your Halloween a little bit more fun (and by fun I mean scary). I'm not a big fan of horror books, so these books are more suspenseful or a little bit creepy than full on scary, but I still think they're capable of giving you the goosebumps.

1. The Archived by Victoria Schwab

The Archived (The Archived, #1)

Victoria Schwab writes some of my most favorite books, and The Archived series, especially the first book, are the best for Halloween. The main character, Mac, keeps the peace in a library of dead people. It's seriously spooky and all-together awesome. 

2. Angelfall by Susan Ee

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

I know that I mention Angellfall basically every other post I write, but it's an amazing, underrated apocalyptic gem, with evil angels and creepy creatures. 

3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is hard to describe--is it a psychological thriller, or straight up paranormal? Either way, it's sure to get you in the Halloween mood. 

4. Enclave by Ann Aguirre

Enclave (Razorland, #1)

Post-apocalyptic zombies!

5. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

This is Not a Test (This is Not a Test #1)

Even more zombies! I actually enjoyed this book more than Enclave, but they're both zombie books perfect for Halloween!

6. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)

Levana's perspective in Fairest by Marissa Meyer is more creepy than anything, but with Winter coming up in well, winter, now's a perfect time to catch up on the Lunar Chronicles!

7. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)

If you haven't already picked up Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, it's chock-full with scary, old and downright peculiar old photographs that are incorporated into the plot, which involves a group of kids with some pretty unique powers. 

8. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

All Our Yesterdays

All Our Yesterdays is the least scary book on this list, but I thought I would include it because a) it's about time travel, and who doesn't love that? 
and b) it's super suspenseful, which I though fits with Halloween.

9. Alive by Scott Sigler

Alive (The Generations Trilogy, #1)

Once again, Alive by Scott Sigler was definitely more suspenseful than scary, but I still think the mystery behind it and the creepy atmosphere is perfect for Halloween! 

10. Sweep series by Cate Tiernan

Book of Shadows (Sweep, #1)

Last, but not least, the Sweep series, while not being the best books around, are all about modern-day witches, which is really interesting and Halloween-y. 

I hope you like my top ten Halloween books! Post your favorite creepy creature books down below, and have a great Halloween!
