Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Horror Book Titles


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Unique Book Titles - I'm going to narrow it down to horror titles for Halloween.  All of these I enjoyed (except for Jojo's - that was just a bit too bizarre for me), and my reviews are linked.  Without further ado, here we go:


My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix


Only the Dead Know Burbank by Bradford Tatum


The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel


Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn


The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan


Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Part 1 - Phantom Blood, Vol. 1 by Hirohiko Araki


Night Film by Marisha Pessl


The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman


I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus by S.G. Browne

Have you tried any of these horror novels?  As always thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps commenting down below!

  1. The only one on your list I've heard of is Night Film! It was really making the blogosphere rounds back when it released. Don't really remember what it's about but I will say - THAT COVER is spot on perfect. :)

  4. Gosh you have some fantastic books there, Lauren! I didn't know some of them were even horror. And the others, I've never heard of them, except for Neil Gaiman's .... is that because I'm a Brit? lol

    1. You know I totally wouldn't say no to more from Gaiman on that one - the Hempstock women are awesome!

      That Zombies one - I lucked out and won that on Goodreads ages ago... :)

  10. I love the list. They do sound crazy when you read them like this. I didn't do horror for my list but yours make for a more fun experience. Come peek at mine if you find time.

  12. I have The Forest of Hands and Teeth sitting on my TBR shelf right now. I mostly bought it because of the title . . .

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  13. I'm so sad I wasn't able to fit in My Best Friend's Exorcism this month. I love The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Why are so many Neil Gaiman titles so charming?

    1. You totally just need to pick it up anyway, Alicia! :)

      Neil Gaiman is one of those author's that I will read regardless.

  15. What a great list! I’ve never heard of most of these and I’m so intrigued, which is good because that’s pretty much the whole point. 😂

    The only one I know is Neil Gaiman’s (love him) Ocean at the End of the Lane. So many people have told me it’s good, but I haven’t taken the plunge yet. I’m glad they weren’t wrong!

    1. You've got a great place to start if you're looking for great horror books, then! :)

      Gaiman has become one of those authors that I'll read no matter what, personally!

  16. I actually own a copy of the Zombie book - I need to pull it out to read this Christmas. Great list. I think the cover of the Burbank book is my favorite and what an awesome title!

  17. Great list! Also, I haven't heard of many of these books, so thanks for mentioning them.

  18. The Summer That Everything Melted doesn't even sound like a horror title. XD I don't know. Maybe it means more after you read the book?

  19. Some of these sound amazing and the last made me laugh!!
