Top 5 Wednesday: Spooky Settings

I am excited to post again this week with Top 5 Wednesday! T5W is a weekly meme is hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes.  You can visit the Goodreads T5W group for more info. This week’s theme is Spooky Settings--which goes along quite well with my post from yesterday.


Sleepy Hollow Cemetery from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow // Okay, I have not actually read this story yet. But I have recently rewatched the Disney cartoon. And that headless horseman is scary! Fun fact, I have visited the actual Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and it’s really neat!

The Games Arenas from The Hunger Games // When you think about it, this is really a terrifying setting. Children are put in a hostile environment sent to kill each other. It’s dangerous and scary. And a great setting!

Geneva, Switzerland from Frankenstein // I am about half way through this novel by Mary Shelley. I find the hill where Victor’s brother is killed and he first sees the monster near his home really creepy.

The Maze from The Maze Runner // I have my issues with this book and it’s plot. But the terror of the maze is well written and definitely a bit freaky. Check out my review here.

The Department of Mysteries from Harry Potter // There are a lot of settings from Harry Potter that I love and that are spooky. I am reading The Order of the Phoenix right now and this one jumps out at me. Between the prophecies and the death eaters and the mysterious nature of the place, this department really is spooky.

What are some of your favorite spooky settings?
