Top Ten Tuesday- Eerie Places in Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is a Halloween freebie so the topic I’ve chosen is: Eerie Places in Books. There are definitely some places in books that give you chills when the main character goes there so I thought I’d list some of the places that stand out to me.

cobCity of Bones/The Silent City (The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare) – When Clary first goes to the City of Bones I thought it was very eerily described.

dasab.jpgThe Moors (Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire) – This was definitely a creepy place and when I was reading it I kept picturing the Halloween town from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

mp.jpgMiss Peregrine’s Time Loop (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs) – Miss Peregrine’s Time Loop is not really a place but the time loop paired with the home itself makes the books feel like they are set in very eerie places.

unwindUnwind Harvest Camps (Unwind by Neal Shusterman) – The Harvest Camps in the Unwind series are not just eerie but very frightening especially when reading from a character’s perspective who’s in the camp.

hpForbidden Forest (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling) – In both the books and movies of Harry Potter the Forbidden Forest seemed like an eerie spooky place.


What are some places in books that felt eerie and creepy to you?

  1. Love the idea for this post! Creepy places in books are some of my favorite. Totally agree about the Forbidden Forest! I mean, it’s forbidden for a reason, right? šŸ˜‰ The Moors were definitely super creepy, too, and I didn’t picture Halloween Town, but oh my gosh, now that you mention it, I can see it. That’s so funny. xD
