Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen - I loved the 1845 setting and who is more creepy than Edgar Allan Poe? I loved this adult read.
The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle - This one had some great fantasy elements and was just spooky enough for me.
Blythewood by Carol Goodman - This historical fantasy series has it all: great atmosphere, an eerie setting, magic, and romance.
The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters - There's a great historical setting, many visions of darkness, hypnotism and fantastic atmosphere in this page-turner.
Made for You by Melissa Marr - This YA novel has a Southern Gothic vibe and includes an edge-of-your-seat mystery involving a killer.
The Diviners by Libba Bray - I almost didn't add this novel to my list, because this novel did scare the bejesus out of me, but it's so well written. If you like your novels a bit scarier than I do, you'll enjoy this historical fiction/fantasy novel that kept me turning the pages late into the night.
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready - This is my kind of ghost story. It's one of my favorites and I enjoyed the entire series.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - This one is a creepy paranormal novel that kept me glued to the pages. It's very haunting and very creepy.
Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin - Here's another ghost story that is right up my alley; plus, it's set during the Civil War time period. I loved the scrapbook portion with illustrations as well!
Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester - This novel is a fun who-done-it middle grade mystery with a great historical NYC setting.
