Top Ten Tuesday Week 6 (it's been way to long)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, each new week they will post a new top ten list, seems easy, right? It totally is.

 This weeks top ten is...
Ten Books Perfect for Reading Around Halloween!

1. The Name of the Star: Maureen Johnson. I just started this actually. It's set in present day London and someone is copycating (spelling?)Jack the Ripper. It's suspenseful and creepy.

2. Dearly Departed: Lia Habel. I haven't read this yet but it sounds like stellar read and very appropriate for Halloween, Zombies, nuff said and I am such a sucker for anything steampunk or victorian era.

3. Dead of Night: Jonathon Mayberry. I received this book for review few weeks and haven't gotten around to it yet, but I've heard such zombie-tastic things about his books, what better way to spend Halloween week reading this?

4. Dracula: Bram Stoker. I watched this movie last weekend (1992 version with Gary Oldman and Wionna Ryder) It was so ridiculous and I feel like picking up the book. I mean this is the original vampire story. 

5. Dead Witch Walking: Kim Harrison. I loved, LOVED this series and it has all the halloweeny type characters we all love. Witches, Vamps, Fairies and let's not forget demons.

6. Interview with a Vampire: Anne Rice. You can't have a halloween reading list without an Anne Rice novel.  She writes the epitome of gothic and horrific vampires tales.

7. Harry Potter Series: JK Rowling. Wizards, spells and an enchanted forest? Hogwarts has it all for a splendid Halloween reading session.

8. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy: Libba Bray. This is one of my all time favorite gothic and victorian stories. I could definitely re-read this series, especially near Halloween.

9. The Crucible: Arthur Miller. I remember reading and watching this in high school. I love some good ol' witch trials. 

10. The Body Finder: Kimberly Derting. I just recieved this from my Fall Santa. (I need to do my thank you post soon) and this sounds creepy and perfect for Halloween.

What about you? What is your top ten for Halloween Reads? Thanks for stopping by!

I also have Dracula on my list too! I'm surprised I've never read the book considering all the YA vamp books I've read. Heh. I did have Anne Rice on my list last year.

I've heard some good things about Name of the Star lately, it sounds really intriguing! Great choices!

Awesome list =) I thought of The Body Finder for this list, just because it's about a serial killer. If I had Dearly, Departed I'd definitely be reading that, but I'm definitely going to be reading The Name of the Star to get in the Halloween mood.

Name of the Star is SUCH a good book. It totally started off my list too. I didn't even think of Harry Potter, but how could they not be great Halloween books? Ghosts and pumpkin juice and Deathday parties! Perfect!

My Top Ten List is over here if you'd like to stop by! Happy Halloween!

Interview with a Vampire was great, although I must say that I liked the movie better. Kirsten Dunst as Claudia was amazing!

I have both The Name of the Star and Dearly, Departed on my TBR list. I'm glad to see that they're good!
