Top 5 Wednesday is a group on Goodreads that I’ve been apart of for awhile, I’m happy to make my first post! It was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and is now run by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. With the spirit of Halloween this week the topic is the 5 spookiest settings… here we go!
1. The Grey Land – The Call
A book I recently finished so it’s fresh in my mind, the Grey Land is where you’re on the run for you life, the enemy always at your heels and whether you’re caught or not your worst nightmares are realized and come alive.
2. Soldier Island – And Then There Were None
The setting was spooky in this one mostly because of the isolation on the island with the killer. I was on edge reading this, it felt the characters always had to constantly check over their shoulder.
3. Childhood Home – Surfacing
I read this book for class and it wasn’t my favourite, but something I remember was the eerie feeling I got when reading about the house and isolated island the narrator grew up with her family.
4. Asphodel Meadows– The Lightning Thief
Ever since I read this book when I was a lot younger, this scene has always stayed with me. Fields of Punishment was bad but Asphodel Meadows wasn’t much better. I remember just thinking about the possibility of spending eternity in Asphodel Meadows gave me serious chills.
5. The North Side past The Wall – Game of Thrones
I’ll admit I haven’t read the book yet, but from the few episodes I’ve seen (still planning on reading it and I didn’t want to spoil the plot) the North Side is terrifying, the amount of unknown is really what’s scary.
Those are my Spookiest Settings for Top 5 Wednesday! What do you think?
Until next time, Emily
