Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is a bookish meme hosted by none other than our lovely Borke and the Bookish; be sure to check her out when you can! Each week bloggers are given a topic and challenged to list their top ten on that topic.
This week is a sort-of toss up: Ten book recommendations for ______________. I’ve been GISHING all this past week with my fellow GISHERS during #GISHWHES (hi, guys!), and I’m still in the Supernatural mindset from our resident actor and GISHWHES Overlord, Misha Collins.
Sooo, I’m digging through my shelves and finding books that fans of “Supernatural”, or maybe just the supernatural would enjoy. You won’t see any sparkling vampires or romantic trysts with ghosts in this list.
As always, if you have a book to add to the list, or would just like to add your own TTT, or both! leave it in the comment section below. AND don’t forget to enter the #GISHWHES inspired giveaway, where you have a chance to win $15 toward a book of your choice AND a $15 donation in your name to Books for Kids.
Pet Sematary by Stephen King
One of the few Stephen King books that I like. With pets raising from the dead and killing their former owners, Sam & Dean would be on this one in a second. No Sam, you can’t have a dog. Cas, stop interrogating the cat.
The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells
In Supernatural, we’ve already experienced how sometimes humans can be the worst monsters of all, add in these creepy scientists that make human/animal hybrids and we’ve got ourselves an episode in the making.
Ring (Ring #1) by Kōji Suzuki
Oh yeah. The boys would be elbowing each other out of the way fighting over who gets to watch the mysterious killer tape and who just has to wait and see what happens. My vote is that Dean wins out on Sammy.
Cryptozoology A to Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras & Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature by Jerome Clark, Loren L. Coleman
Of course I don’t have a fancy hidden bunker of my own full of old texts with lore of every creature ever spotted, but I do have one of the better known creatures. It’s always good to keep track of where they are, you know, just in case they decide to go rogue. Nessie may seem harmless but just wait till dead sheep start popping up in that lake of hers.
Mysterious America: The Ultimate Guide to the Nation’s Weirdest Wonders, Strangest Spots, and Creepiest Creatures by Loren Coleman
It’ll be a hit-and-miss a few times before you dig up one that’s real, but you gotta start somewhere, right? You might find your very own Mystery Spot.
