Halloween Reads - Top 5 Picks

by - Saturday, October 15, 2016

It's the time of the year again! Although I'm not really a huge fan of horror books/movies, I am oddly infatuated with gothic themed works (weird, I know). As an example, I scare easily when I watch horror movies like The Conjuring or Annabelle, but TV series including American Horror Story and Supernatural are my guilty pleasure. I also really like YA/NA horror! Probably because they aren't as scary :p 

In preparation for Halloween, here are my top 5 YA/NA picks for this year's Halloween Reads! 

#1 - The Dead Things Series by Martina McAtee

Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (Dead Things, #1)29391251

#2 - The Darkest Power series by Kelley Armstrong

2800905The Awakening (Darkest Powers, #2)The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, #3)

#3 - Red Hill by Jamie McGuire


#4 - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2)

Chamber of Secrets deserves a special mention because I remembered totally freaking out when I was reading the book and watching the movie. With students turning into stones and Ginny's creepiness, it was too much for my young heart to handle at that time :P 

#5 - Shade series by Jeri Smith Ready
