I am an absolute scaredy-cat  and I DO NOT read horror. Not that I have anything against that genre but seriously, I GET SCARED SHITLESS when I read horror. In fact, I don’t believe I ever finished a horror novel – EVER!

However, I do get my “horror” fix by reading creepy, non-horror books. With that, here are 10 creepy books that WILL NOT scare you – much.

ihrya-ttt-coraline

Perhaps one of the scariest of these lot is Coraline because HELLO OTHER MOTHER! I mean, don’t you think she was really creepy? And evil? And just – shudder! Those button eyes?!

ihrya-ttt-stalking

Stalking Jack the Ripper. How can you not get creepier than that?! I just finished reading this book and it was AWESOME! And awesomely creepy, too! Not to mention the amazing Audrey Rose and Thomas?! Victorian Era London IS CREEPY.

ihrya-ttt-madmans

The Madman’s Daughter is a retelling of Dr. Moreau’s Island featuring Juliet, Moreau’s daughter. AND THIS BOOK IS REALLY CREEPY! I have only one word: JAGUAR!

ihrya-ttt-dark

Her Dark Curiosity is the second book in The Madman’s Daughter series and this is a retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This time, the whole book happens in London and OMG the creeps! And Jaguar is still here!

ihrya-ttt-cold

A Cold Legacy, the last book in the series is a retelling or Frankenstein and OMG the creeps! I personally think this is the second creepiest book in the series. And bloody. And I love Juliet’s dark thoughts.

ihrya-ttt-daughter

Daughter of Smoke and Bone isn’t really scary but it features Angels and Demons and Chimera. So yeah, in a way, it is really creepy. The world building for this book is FREAKING AWESOME!

ihrya-ttt-halfway

Halfway to the Grave is one of my favorite paranormal romance books. Of course, it IS NOT scary, but it is a little creepy. And kick-ass, too! Oh, and BONES <3

ihrya-ttt-graveyard

The last creepy book that I read a while back is The Graveyard Book and although it is NOT scary, it is creepy. Imagine a boy living in a graveyard talking to ghosts?
