  9. Some really scary ones on this list! Love Rebecca and I've always wanted to read Dracula. I'm afraid of Amnityville Horror, and I've seen the movie Psycho. I haven't read Ten but I have read And Then There were None by Agatha Christie which was the original - great read! Good list thanks for stoping by mine too!

  10. I definitely want to read Ten - I've seen it on so many lists today, and I know it's based on my favourite Agatha Christie mystery. I haven't read Rebecca, although I have seen the film and if the book if anywhere near as creepy, I might have to sleep with the light on! And YES to Rocky Horror. Absolutely wonderful any time of year! :D

  15. I can never spell this name, so i'm just going to say number 10, the home for peculiar children is a good book, rather than embarrassing myself trying to spell the name. xD And Stephen King is a good one! Thanks for your comment on mine!

  16. I can't believe I haven't checked out any of Edgar Allen Poe's works. I must fix that in the near future...have also been meaning to check out Miss Peregrine's Home for Pecuilar Children, the cover and premise sounds positively eerie!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog earlier! =)

  20. Wow, I haven't read a single one of these! I'm considering reading Ten, but I'm not 100$ sure if I'll thank myself for it afterwards! I get creeped out so easily that I have, so far, just decided to read ATTWK before, and see if I like it enough to consider reading a modern adaption!
    Great list!

  23. How did I forget about Miss Peregrine?! Ah, so disappointed in myself, that's perfect for Halloween! Also, I;m dying to read some Poe. I went to a lecture last night on Poe's influence on detective stories, so now that's all I want to read. Thanks for following me, I followed you right back! Great list.

    1. Poe is the best! Its very fitting to read Ten during Halloween week...enjoy!

  26. Oh, I love Poe! And since I'm kind of a YA fanatic, I have to recommend Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. The works of Poe play a big part in the story.

  27. Miss Peregrine is a really good choice! I'm not a huge fan of Poe's short stories (I love his poems, though), but they do fit the season. (: Ten is so creepy!

    Great list!
