You know the drill for the Top Ten Tuesday post, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we got a Halloween-themed freebie and I have to admit that I am mostly at a loss when it comes to freebies. I always want to do something really creative and cool, but my mind is mostly blank. I don’t read any scary books, because I don’t like the feeling of being scared … So, all I could think of were books that included some sort of supernatural creature or magical being (be it vampire, ghost, werewolf, witch, fairy, etc.). Hope you enjoy!
1. The Mortal Instruments/The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare
Okay, so what do you want? Werewolves, faeries, vampires, demons, warlocks? You name it, because that book very likely has it!
2. The Magicians Series by Lev Grossman
There are a ton of fantastical creatures in the books that I did not know before, but they also have quite regular ones like demons.
3. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
I don’t know about you but the title already suggests werewolf and werewolf it is. If you continue with the series though, witches and the likes will appear.
4. The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
Those are the books the TV show True Blood is based on. Vampires! ‘Nough said!
5. Witches of East End by Melissa De La Cruz
Okay, the title is obvious enough, right?
6. The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
You see me grasping at straws now …
7. The Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
The book has ghosts in it, but they are not the real focus of the story.
8. Tithe by Holly Black
Faeries!!! Because well, the series called Modern Faerie Tales, but I haven’t read any of the other books.
9. Cirque du Freak Series by Darren Shan
Again vampires. There are a lot of books with vampires.
10. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
I just threw this in for the fun of it. There’s a sort of ghost in the story, but for the sake of not spoiling anyone, I am not going to say who it is!
I know, I know … I’ve done better and there were a ton of books I didn’t mention. What about Harry Potter or Vampire Academy you may ask? Well, I didn’t want to put in any books that I haven’t read. Now, please don’t shame me for not having read HP and tell me all about your TTT lists instead!
