Top Ten Tuesday this week is about
❄ Horror TBR List ❄
(In no particular order)
1. This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzie Lee.
I love the original Frankenstein story by Mary Shelley, so I have to admit that I'm looking forward to what kind of retelling Lee has written for us. I actually have this on my Kindle, so I can't wait to get to it! I think I'm going to read it exactly on Halloween, just to make it a bit creepier.
2. Horns by Joe Hill.
I've been wanting to read Horns forever now, but I just recently moved to a different city, and now I can't find the book from my local bookstore! UGH. I think I just need to rely (once again) on the magic of Bookdepository.
3. The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma.
Another beauty! I just wish I had all the money in the world, so I just could keep on buying books like this. I've read so many good reviews on The Walls Around Us, and as it sounds exactly my piece of cake, I promise that I'll get around to it. Sometime. Promise.
I have a huuuuge confession to make. I've never read a book by Stephen King. There, I said it! The source of my eternal shame. It's not that I don't think his books aren't appealing to me, but it just that they are very intimidating. In size. I'm sure many of us been there. I mean, I see this very interesting book, but then. You see how big it is. And you get scared and run for the hills. BUT. I want to do it as well. And I will.
5. Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by various authors.
Are you serious?! Short stories by Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Nova Ren Suma, and April Genevieve Tucholke, among many other cool names. This is a must.
Yet another book which has been on my TBR list forever. I'm kind of starting to feel sorry for myself for not even trying to read these wonderful sounding books. What's wrong with me, seriously. Take The Passage - it has such a unique premise with all kinds of survival, sci-fi, and horror elements in it. And I think I even might have it on my Kindle.. Yep, just checked it. I have it on my Kindle. No excuse anymore then.
7. Coraline by Neil Gaiman.
Another walk of shame but this time with this little dark baby. To add even more to your shock, I haven't seen the movie either. And the thing is that I could get the book online only for a couple of pounds. Maybe I should...
8. Let the Right One In by John Ahvide Lindqvist.
Reading this bad boy here would serve me in two different ways: 1) most likely entertain to me to death (no pun here intended..) and 2) the original book is in Swedish, and since I really want to practise my Swedish, I could try to read in the original language. Even though I might miss half of the plot in the end.
9. Blood and Salt (Blood and Salt #1) by Kim Liggett.
I was a bit hesitant at first to add Blood and Salt to my list, since many of my Goodreads friends hadn't exactly loved it. BUT. I do find the synopsis pretty intriguing and I'm willing to give it a chance.
I just discovered this book about 10 minutes ago when I was on Goodreads, and I was immediately hooked by the blurb as it described the novel as 'eerie' and it has illustrations! And besides, the rating is over 4.0 so count me in.
What Halloween-y or horror books do you have on your TBR list?
