Thursday’s Top 4: books that haunted you

Find out more about Thursday’s Top 4 here! It’s basically a meme I started mainly for myself, but anyone can participate! Visit this page for the upcoming topics 🙂

This week’s topic is books that haunted you, for Halloween! These are books that you kept thinking of long after you read them.

Morning Star (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown

This whole series, really. But the ending blew me away. I read it on a plane and as soon as we landed, I texted my friend Andrew about it. Then gushed about it with him next time I saw him. Then described in detail the ending to my boyfriend (who tbh is never going to read it). It was just amazing.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I just adored this book and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it or recommending it. I just feel so passionately about it.

Nothing by Janne Teller

I read this book in high school and immediately bought it for my English teacher. I loved it and still think about it all the time. It’s so creepy and disturbing but I think it’s so important and I highly recommend it.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

So this one’s a bit different. Honestly, I wasn’t the biggest fan of TFIOS. I read it and thought it was fine, but I wasn’t as blown away as everyone seemed to be. And I kept thinking about it and felt like I’d missed something maybe? But I’ve reread it a couple times since then and still feel the same way. So it haunted me in a weird way?


Thanks for reading! Are there any books you feel “”haunted”” you?

  1. SMOKE AND MIRRORS by Tanya Huff haunted me in a more Halloween-type way. I lay awake at nights after the first time I read it, afraid of nightmares. I’ve since re-read it, and I don’t have the same issues with it as I did the first time, but it really creeped me out after that first read. (It doesn’t help that it’s essentially about a haunted house and I read the creepiest part at night before bed…)

      1. I really like it! It is the second in the series, though, so while you could probably read it first there will definitely be spoilers for book 1 if you decide to do it that way.
