Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND sign Mister Linky at the bottom to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Don't worry if you can't come up with ten every time...just post what you can!
Hi everyone! This week I wanted to do a Top Ten Tuesday in honor of Halloween, so I've picked out my top ten 10 spooky/creepy/scary books for the season. And, okay, some of them might not have actually scared me, but they are appropriate for Halloween.
Ok this one might be alittle hard for me to do.
1. Scary stories to tell in the dark- Whats' weird is a few ago and friend and I went to HPB and she went over to look these books up and got 3 of them I believe and we went to her house, and read them. I got to admit they're still kinda creep. "The worms crawl in the worms crawl out." What the hell? Or the big toe story. Yeah!
2. The Funhouse by Dean Koontz- Once there was a girl who ran away and joined a traveling carnival. She married a man she grew to hate - and gave birth to a child she could never love. A child so monstrous that she killed it with her own hands... Twenty-five years later, Ellen Harper has a new life, a new husband, and two normal children. Joey loves monster movies and Amy is about to graduate from high school. But their mother drowns her secret guilt in alcohol and prayer. The time has come for Amy and Joey to pray for her sins... because Amy is pregnant, and the carnival is coming back to town.
It may not sound creepy, but this thing was weird as hell. It was also a little demented I think.
3. Cujo by Stephen King- I haven't actually read this yet, but I do have it in my library.
4. Are you afraid of the dark? tv series- I know this isn't a book, but I'm having a hard time coming up with books. This show came on back in the 90's on Nickalodeon(sp). They had some that still creep me the hell out like the dollhouse, or I think it was called the phone police (never make prank calls you never know who listening), and a few others. If you go on you tube and tyoe in are you afraid of the dark you can watch episodes.
5. The Shining- Yeah, I still don't like one. I never read the book, but the movie was bad enough.
6. IT by Stephen King- Clowns! Killer clowns! need I say more I remember watching this at my grandparents house when I was younger then 10. Probaly, not smart.
7. Rose red- even though I liked this movie. Still kinda scared me.
8. I'm still thinkg
9. told you I probably couldn't make it
10. to ten//hum
Yes I know these aren't all books, but I liked the list and had to add in the movies and shows. Apparently, are you afriad of the dark has some books. What do you think?
