Top Ten Tuesday: Books to get in the "Halloween" Spirit

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's topic is Top Ten Books To Get In The Halloween Spirit. I'm not one to celebrate Halloween or to read scary stories. But there are ten suspenseful books, a few nonfiction books about the spirit world, and a few about Martin Luther in honor of All Saints Day

Top Ten Books to Get in the "Halloween Spirit"

1. The Messenger by Siri Mitchell
There is a creepy guy in there actually.

2. The Last Jihad series by Joel Rosenberg
A very intense fiction series written 2002-2008 about politics in the Middle East and the End times. The crazy thing is that Mr. Rosenberg started the first book in the spring of 2001 and began his novel with terrorists using an airplane to wreck havoc in America. It's amazing how many times events in his novels foreshadowed actual events in the Middle East.

These were intense stories and I could not read the series straight through without taking a break and reading something more lighthearted and less sobering.

3. Kitty, My Rib by E. Jane Mall
A wonderful biography of Katharina von Bora, Martin Luther's wife. If you have not read this you should!

4. The Healer's Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson
Perhaps an odd choice for this list, but I'm including it because it's one of the few novels I've read that actually acknowledge (and include) that there is a spirit world and that demons or demonic forces can affect our lives.

5. The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
Hard to mention demons without including this classic.

6. Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Plenty of suspense. Especially in The Hound of Baskerville - there's a creepy story for you.

7. What would you add?

Sorry I couldn't come up with ten, although there are five books in the Last Jihad series if you want to count that.
