1. Haunted -- Things that frighten me more than anything else are the capabilities of the human mind. The depravity of some people is bone-chilling and sickening. This masterfully writen, but so horrible at the same time. I didn't want to be around anyone for two weeks after starting this.
2. The Safety of Objects -- What's really behind the doors of the suburbs? Be sure you're prepared before you look, it isn't safe.
3. Something Dangerous -- An all boys school with old secrets and parents to far gone to turn to for help; human depravity and specters!
4. A Choir of Ill children -- This starts off disturbed and then alludes to the supernatural and just gets darker and darker.
5. Age of Consent -- A house with a bad history many times over. This is Scary, there are possible possesions, death awaiting at every corner and that's just the mild parts.
6. Angels and Demons -- This is all action spurred on by discovering a threat to the Catholic Church from the most infamous secret society: The Illuminati. Thrilling, in a word.
7. Frankenstein -- On the other side, a "monster" one could empathize with. This story is simply the plight of the different.
8. Anna Dressed in Blood -- Witty and suspenceful. A can't put down book about violent ghosts and the young man that must put them to rest for good.
9. Uglies -- Government control hidden behind what we all want: to be beautiful and wanted. Scary conspiracy, big-brother kind of story. And it's the first book in one of the best series around today, BTW.
10. Fahrenheit 451 -- How could a book lover not be terrifyed by a story starring a fireman: not one that fights fires but instead destroys free thinking by burning books. Also a must read for book lovers at anytime of the year, so if you've never read this get on it.
Honorable Mention For something lighter:
Devilish -- A deal with the devil is a classic Halloween theme. This one, though, comes with all of the hilarity and quick wit of Maureen Johnson.
