Top Ten Halloween Freebie

  

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is a Top Ten freebie for Halloween! 
Wooh bring on the scary stuff. After much deliberation (well, not that much) I decided to go with books about people being stalked or chased- because who doesn't like that at this time of the year? Well, fictionally speaking. So here are my Top Ten run for your life reads.        


Blackbird (Blackbird, #1)

Why are they chasing her? 

Ten 

Stranded on an island. 

Echoes

This was a trip. 

Survive the Night

Trapped under NYC in abandoned subway tunnels... and being hunted. Yes please.   

City of the Lost (Rockton, #1)

A town off the grid and lotsa secrets.

13 Secrets

Nasty faeries and a group being picked off one by one- what's not to like? 

An Unwanted Guest

Trapped by a blizzard and a killer on the prowl. 

The Woman in the Window

I love stories where someone hears or sees something but no one believes them.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

I guess this one's a no- brainer in the run for your life category.

This is Not a Test (This is Not a Test #1)

Ooh does a zombie apocalypse count?     

Three Days to Dead (Dreg City, #1)

I loved this urban fantasy - with a character named Chalice Frost, how could I not?? 

Freeks

I rather liked this urban fantasy carnival.

Menagerie (Menagerie, #1)

More urban fantasy + carnival 

What She Saw

Poor Lana saw something she shouldn't have...

Contagion (Contagion, #1)

Creepy AF at times.

  1. Haha, I love your choice of topic. I did love City of the Lost, because if there's one thing worse than being stalked or chased, it's being stalked and chased in the middle of nowhere where there's no sign of civilization to be had for miles and no one to help you.

    1. Thanks! Yes I loved city of the Lost partly because whenever she was in the woods, Armstrong managed to capture that is-there-someone-behind-you feel haha!

    1. I recommend it- not everyone liked it but I liked the paranoia of it, the sense that it was almost like a Hitchcock movie.

  3. Every time I see Freeks, I think I have it on my Kindle and then I look and I don't. I must have a book with a similar cover. I am still interested in Ten and Survive the Night. 🎃

    1. Ten is very YA and Freeks is pretty good!

  4. Oooh, love the theme you went with! I'm always looking for more good stalker stories, haha. I haven't read any of these except The Hunger Games and Contagion, but I loved both of those, so I'm gonna have to add some of these to my TBR! :) Happy reading!

  5. Stalking scares me so much. Great top for your Top Ten!

  6. Being stranded on an island? That plot alone is CREEPY!! *shudders* THG also fits well because well, yeah, the plot is pretty self explanatory.

    Thanks so much for the Finding Wonderland visit, Greg.

    1. Right? That would definitely be freaky I think.

  7. Didn't know Contagion was so creepy. Interesting. :)

    1. I didn't know it was going to be either, but I really liked it!

  8. I love THIS IS NOT A TEST!! I can't read a ton of zombie books bc they give me nightmares, but that was one that I braved bc I'm a big fan of the author. Also, zombies aren't in it THAT much. SURVIVE THE NIGHT is one I own and really want to find time to read.

    1. Yes it's awesome. In fact I may need to reread it at some point (and the novella).

      Delete
  9. I still have to read any of the books you listed here, but they are on my endless TBR pile! Probably Menagerie is at the top of my list :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. OOoh great picks! Seeing a lot of favorites! Menagerie, Survive the Night, ANY Kelley Armstrong book, Three Days to Dead, Ten, and ECHOES! I loved that one!! Dying for a sequel to it too! I still need to read Contagion but I was leaning towards binging it with the sequel next year!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Yes Echoes NEEDS a sequel! And I highly recommend Contagion- although w/ that ending, binging it with the sequel might be a great way to go!

      I loved three Days to Dead (especially Isleen) and I ned more Armstrong.

      Delete
  11. Great list! Survive the Night sounds really fun. I'd also recommend Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None - there was a wonderful BBC adaptation of it a couple of years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Some of these I still need to read but I definitely love the series by Armstrong, it is one of my favorites and I can't wait for the next one!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I need to grab Contagion from the library and I own Freeks - I got it in a subscription box. Survive the Night got on my nerves and I wish I had read The Merciless instead. Great list Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The Woman in the Window was one of my favorites this year. Can't wait for the movie!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes! The Casey Duncan series! An Unwanted Guest sounds good. I'll have to check it out. :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. It was fun- and yes the Casey series such a fave right now.

      Delete
  16. I have to agree, stories about people being chased terrify me! Great choice for the topic. I've read several of these, Ten and Survive the Night, and it's almost more than I can take as a reader, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The cover of Ten always creeps me out. It looks so foreboding. And yeah, Hunger Games is the ultimate “run for your life” tale. I actually used Effie is my post for today. :)

    1. Right? I love that cover. I'm not sure the book QUITE lives up to it, but it's fun.

  18. A few of these are on my list-Survive the Night, Contagion, An Unwanted Guest, and I loved Three Days to Dead!

  21. Good choice for this week!

    Echoes was definitely interesting, and of course, who could forget The Hunger Games! Contagion sounds interesting, but I haven't read it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love This Is Not a Test. Super curious about Survive the Night!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I received an ARC of This is Not a Test a few years ago. It was really good. Good recommendations.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ha fun list! I just read a book about a serial stalker, that would be an interesting twist

    ReplyDelete
  25. Awesome list! Menagerie sounds so good! I really want to read that one.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great list. Some of these covers are really awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is a great list! I loved Ten, This is Not a Test, The Hunger Games (of course) and An Unwanted Guest and totally want to read Echoes and 13 Secrets. Happy Halloween!

  28. Bwahahahaha Greg yes Hunger Games is a no brainer to run for one's life LOL Great choices here! Sophie @bewareofthereader

  29. Cool topic. The only one I’ve read is The Hunger Games, but if any of these other books are as good as that series, I need to read them.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  30. I don't even need the NYC subway to be abandoned for it to scare me.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have not read any of the books on your list, guess that means I don't really read much about people getting chased or stalked, although I did try to read the hunger games once but just couldn't get into it.

    have a lovely day.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh yeah, being stalked is definitely super creepy!! Makes my skin crawl. I still need to read An Unwanted Guest!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've had This Is Not a Test on my TBR for a million years, and I meant to read it this month but I've ended up running out of time. Oops. Hopefully I can get to it soon, though :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. "Trapped under NYC in abandoned subway tunnels... and being hunted." Yikes! Glad I'm reading this post after my NYC trip rather than before, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This Is Not a Test and Contagion *almost* made my list! And Echoes did, because I want to read it. I love that THG is on here, too! And I think I feel like the person in Woman in the Window? Someone sees something and no one believes them? It's me in Bookish Games! Also I really love the idea of the abandoned Reaper... er, subway tunnels, I will probably have to give that one a try! Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ooh great list! Run for your life books are always so intense and they stress me out so much! I haven't read any of these books apart from The Hunger Games and I don't know if I'm game enough to try!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday

    ReplyDelete
  37. How much deliberation exactly? :-P The topic you decided on is unexpectedly specific lol. I couldn't even think of one book about people being stalked/hunted, let alone ten! But I have read The Hunger Games, so I'm prob just bad at remembering lol. 13 Secrets sounds kind of awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like where you went with his topic!!! I really want to get Echoes and City of the Lost. The Woman in the Window is great for the topic!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What She Saw totally caught my eye. Nice list topic :)
