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.
City 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.
The 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.
Miss 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.
Unwind 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.
Forbidden 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?
