A Special Slate of Spooky Spectral Reads

A banner with the words The Top Ten Tuesday List on it.

How perfect is it that Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year? Beyond the fact that it means no little monsters prowling our streets on a weekend, it enables us to have a perfectly timed Top Ten Tuesday list for our lovely readers. Well, it enabled Gracie to make a great list for you, as I mostly sat this one out due to life being life, and all of that.

Now, we gave you a list of interesting sci-fi / horror movies to consider watching for the lead up to All Hallows Eve, but if none of them tickled your fancy, perhaps one of these lovely books will.

Gracie has put together an excellent list of spectral-themed books that she’s paired up with commonly known (and liked) spooky movies for you.

We hope everyone has a safe, happy and haunting Halloween!

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by Broke & Bookish

Now that you’ve hopefully got a book or movie in mind that you can watch in betwixt visits from ickle ghosties and goblins a’rappin’ at your door, why don’t you take a minute to talk about Halloween with us?

Are you going to dress up to hand out candy or to escort your little monster from door to door? Do you go all out for Halloween around your house?

We like it when you talk spooky with us. – L&G

  1. We’ve never prepared for visitors or had them in this house; it sits behind another house and so is almost invisible. But this year we decided to light the place up, even with a lit pumpkin on the front step where it can be seen, and a bowl of chocolate. So far, some children, under 10.

    Meanwhile, the stereo is playing list of 40 spooky/supernatural-themed songs we assembled for a party on the weekend. From “A Night on Bald Mountain” to “Ghost Riders in the Sky” to “Season of the Witch” to “Tubular Bells” to “Godzilla” to “Nature Trail to Hell (in 3D).”

    1. We’re in an awkward spot for people to stop as well so we drive to a neighboring city to walk around there. There’s always a lot of people in cool costumes and the houses are pretty cool. We got rained out this year, though.

      I recognize the rest of the music but “Nature Trail to Hell” (3-D, no less) has me intrigued.

      1. “Nature Trail to Hell (in 3D)” is a “Weird” Al Yancovic song. At least one fan-made video of it on YouTube uses forest scenes from the “Friday the 13th” movies.
