{Top Ten Tuesday} Books that Deal with the Unknown

Posted October 29, 2019 by Leah in Memes & Features, Top 10 Tuesday / 25 Comments

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Woohoo, it’s almost Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday, best known for being the time when the veil lists between the worlds of the living the dead and spirits walk the earth. It’s also known for even scarier things. I was racking my brain for hours trying to come up with a topic that is also an homage to my favorite day, and I decided we would look at some books that deal with the unknown. Things and places just beyond our understanding, where myth is as real as a name, where monsters can look and act like people. Let’s go through the veil into these realms.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman–Because this would not be my list without it.

The Diviners by Libba Bray

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

The Hunger by Alma Katsu

Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

A Taste for Monsters by Matthew Kirby

City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky


Happy Halloween! What are some of your favorite books dealing with the unknown?

      The Graveyard Book is one of my all time favorites. 😀 And yay, someone else who has read Girl With All the Gifts!

  1. Great list, Leah! There are actually quite a few on here that I want to read, especially Bone Houses, Ninth House and Not Even Bones! I didn’t know about that book until I came across the new webtoon that was published earlier this week. It’s so great! Definitely makes me wanna read the book 🙂
