Top Ten Tuesday: Atmospheric Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!

This week's theme is: Atmospheric

 It has been quite some time since I participated in a Top Ten Tuesday post, but I had some extra time this week and I love an atmospheric book so I decided to jump back in this week! I tried to pick out some books that felt extra-atmospheric to me when I read them, and honestly most of these make for some perfect Halloween season reads so it feels like perfect timing. Let me know if you've read any of the books below and what you thought of them, and feel free to share some of your favorite atmospheric reads well!


Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia 

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones


The Tenth Girl by Sara Faring

House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig


The Gobblin' Society by James P. Blaylock

Horseman by Christina Henry


The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling

The Grace Year by Kim Liggett


Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier


  1. Rebecca is making the rounds today. I have heard it's creepy.

  2. I loved Rebecca! Some of your others look interesting as well.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post: https://storiedconversation.com/top-ten-tuesday-atmospheric-books/

  3. I've only read REBECCA. I didn't love it like lots of people do, but it definitely is atmospheric!

    Happy TTT!

  4. Rebecca was the first one I thought of, so I was happy to see it on your list! Seems like atmospheric reads and spooky reads go hand in hand!

  5. The Only Good Indians is a great choice!
