Top Ten Tuesday (2)

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme to share your top ten bookish things. It is especially funny for people who like to make lists.

This week's theme is Top Ten Books for Halloween. Here are mine:

1. Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann - It's a sheepish detective story and I have the urgent need to recommend it to all you people because nobody seems to know this fabulous author.

2. In the Woods by Tana French - I just read this book, I think it's my favorite read this year.

3. Out by Natsuo Kirino - Murdering women is all I have to say.

4. Her fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger - Again a great novel or better say ghost story by Niffenegger.

5. The Perfume by Patrick Süßkind - Again the urgent need to step in for German language authors. What a horrifying read!

6. Dracula by Bram Stoker - I'm currently reading this book but as I grabbed it as Halloween read on the list it goes.

7. The Woods by Harlan Coben - There is something about creepy woods.

8. Coraline by Neil Gaiman - I so loved watching the film in this case! Often I hate the film when I already read the book.

It seems like I can't think of two more right now. And I'm not going to force me.


  1. I am dying to read In The Woods! It might have to be my last minute read before Halloween is over. Love your list!

  2. Oh I haven't seen Coraline as a movie yet! Read the book though, for my children's lit class, and I have to say that some aspects of it are certainly creepy.

  3. Ooh! I read Out. While it didn't creep me out, it was definitely gruesome. In that way, it reminded me a lot of Battle Royale. I wanna read more by her though :) Especially Grotesque.

    Nice list!

  4. Oh I -love- In The Woods! Definitely one of my favourite books this year. Her Fearful Symmetry made my list too.

  5. I never read scary. I end up with too many bad dreams.

    Here's my TTT:

  6. Ah, I've heard such good things about In the Woods! I love the cover. It's kind of creepy.

  7. The Coraline movie followed pretty closely to the book I thought. And what they added in, I didn't mind so much. Great list!

    My Top Ten

  8. Haven't read Coraline, but the movie was awesome!

  9. It is a shame that not more people have read "Perfume". I personally don't find it horrifying but rather fascinating. Admittedly, Grenouille is a horrible character, but I wouldn't consider the book to be in the horror genre.
