Top Ten Books with Things that Go Bump in the Night

Vampires, Zombies, Ghosts, and Witches, oh my! I don't read a lot of scary books, because I can be a total wimp.  However, I have read a lot of books that feature the above paranormal creates.  These books aren't necessarily scary, but they do feature beings that you are likely going to see at a Halloween party.  Well, in addition to all those lame sexy kitties.

This series features a bit of everything, I guess it's mainly witches, but there are special guest appearances by shapeshifters and other fun paranormal creatures. Not scary at all, just a good read.

This book is pretty creepy.  More suspenseful than true horror, but the spooky is really there.  The first book has been my favorite in the series.

This book probably gave me the biggest creeps.  It's just a really good spooky ghost story.

Lots of ghosts in this series.  Some are good and many are bad. I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of some of these ghosts.

Werewolves.  Not scary werewolves, just beautifully written werewolves.  I loved this series.

I would hardly describe this series of witches scary.  I guess for the intended audience the later books can be scary, but this awesome series makes the list because of all the witches and paranormal creatures.

 My Love Lies Bleeding (Drake Chronicles #1) by Alyxandra Harvey

An awesome series featuring very not scary vampires.  Vampires!  They're just like you and me, except they like blood.

Just finished this series, and it's good zombie fun.  I wouldn't classify this book as scary either, it just kick zombie butt fun.

This book was scary if only because it made me realize I will so NEVER survive a zombie apocalypse.  Nope, I will quickly join the ranks of the undead. I found this book to be very suspenseful, but not particularly scary.


I have read some really scary books in the past that scared me badly. Stephen King is most responsible for many of my nightmares.  After too many bad nights of sleep, I now tend to avoid his books, as awesome as they may be.  That being said, for me the book of his that scared me the most was 'Salem's Lot.  I slept with some weird stuff by my side for weeks after I read that book.  This is not a YA book, although I was stupid enough to read it while I was in high school, so I decided to include it.


  1. MEDIATOR SERIES!!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this series!!! It was one of the rare paranormal YA series in a time with NO paranormal YA! It holds a special place in my heart for that! And we're getting so much closer to book 7!!! I cannot wait!!

  2. Yes! I was also terrified of Salem's Lot, which is funny because I grew up with the mini-series. Reading it, though, was a different story. My dumb butt actually read it one rainy night when I was home alone.
