If you love a good spine-chilling mystery, or gripping psychological thriller, but won't go near horror novels because they make you lose sleep at night, this is the reading list for you. These 45 books are seriously spooky, but not out-and-out scary.
These books have been banned at some point in time and yet include some essential stories that I think make them extremely noteworthy. I own many of these and plan to encourage my kids to read at some point in their life.
Promise Not To Tell - Jennifer McMahon. This book goes from past to present. A nurse returns to care for her mother and on that night a young girl is murdered. It pulls the nurse back into her childhood and the death of her friend. A terrific spooky read.
