TOP TEN TUESDAY: Ten books to read if you like... Supernatural

(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! I was trying to decide on books to read if you liked a specific author, or a specific series... But I just couldn't think of any that would work. So I thought - hm, TV! This Top Ten Tuesday will help you find books to read if you enjoy Supernatural, the spooky, ghost-hunting, paranormal extravaganza.

10) 'You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)' by Felicia Day
I don't know why, but I have a feeling Felicia Day's memoir would appeal to our trusty heroes...

9) 'Shiver' by Maggie Stiefvater
A child gets attacked by a wolf in the woods - that can't be a one off incident. Yes, 'Shiver' and the following two books are a little bit too romance-y, but I can imagine Sam and Dean bursting in and making everything much more awkward. 

8) 'Working Stiff' by Rachel Caine
A medication gets created that stops the dead from dying - the ensemble cast of characters have a bloody tricky time getting everything sorted out, so I think they'd need to contact the Winchesters to make everything a little bit easier. 

7) 'The Darkest Part Of The Forest' by Holly Black
Strangely attractive horned man is asleep in a glass coffin, and has been undisturbed for years. Perfect for an episode of Supernatural in which the boys go sight-seeing and accidentally disturb a magical entity.

6) 'The Girl At Midnight' by Melissa Grey
The secret underground societies of the Drakharin and Avicen - dragon and bird people respectively - would definitely draw the attention of the Supernatural squad. 

5) 'Burn For Burn' by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
Ghostly happenings on a mysterious island - the spirit is rather malevolent... Yeah, Sam and Dean would be called in for this one. 

4) 'The Walls Around Us' by Nova Ren Suma
'The Walls Around Us' includes a haunted prison, and the suspicious deaths of multiple teenage girls at a high school ballet performance. If that doesn't shout Supernatural at you, I don't know what will. 

3) 'Ignite' by Erica Crouch
Fallen angels? Check. Humanity in mortal peril? Check. Sam and Dean would be right in the middle of this one.

2) 'The Archived' by Victoria Schwab
'The Archived' is based on the idea that when people die, they are kept in a library and their histories can be revisited. They manage to keep the situation under control quite well, but sometimes the Histories get violent and attempt to escape. If it got really, really bad, I can imagine the brothers would definitely investigate this one. 

1) 'Silverwood' by Betsy Streeter
When I read 'Silverwood', I couldn't get it out of my head that the main character was in a very similar situation to Sam and Dean - her father is absent, and then terrifying things start taking over her life and she ends up monster hunting. Perfect for a Supernatural fan. 


  1. The Darkest Part of the Forest is on my TBR list ! keen to start reading it ! and I LOVE SUPERNATURAL TOO ! Dean and Cass = OTP <3

    Here's my TTT :)

    1. Destiel is ultimate ship. I find it difficult to ship other ships because they're just so perfect! You should definitely read Darkest Part of the Forest - it's so much fun!

  2. Hi! I connected my list to TV too :) Great idea haha
    My TTT

    1. I'm glad it wasn't just me! I read a really wide range, so I find it hard to delve too deeply - ten books that are closely connected is impossible for me to think of.

  3. I love this post. I love this post. I love this post! I LOVE IT!

    As I type I am (not even joking) wearing a "Hunting Things, Saving People" Winchester sweatshirt.

    I am very rarely an uber fan, but Supernatural has me practically panting. Grew up with the show, and both my brothers were obsessed as well.

    Have I said how much I love this post?

    I love Felicia Day (The Guild FTW!) and had no idea that she had a memoir out. TBR. I've seen "Archived" around and actually own "Burn for Burn", but I won it so I actually had zero idea what it was about. Now I think I'm actually interested!

    GREAT Reader's Advisory post!

    Top Ten Books to Read if You Like J.K. Rowling

    1. Thank you! I adore Supernatural, but I haven't been able to catch up on the last season because of all the damn reading I've been doing - I really need to get on that soon!
      You should definitely read 'Burn For Burn', because it looks like it's just going to be an ordinary contemporary high school drama series but it is SO MUCH BETTER than that. I seriously recommend it.

  4. Haha, this is a great list! One that Sam & Dean would definitely approve. I've been meaning to read The Darkest Part of the Forest for awhile now, but I still haven't gotten around to it. Thanks for sharing!

    My TTT

    Obsessive Compulsive Reader

    1. Thank you! You should definitely read The Darkest Part of the Forest - I cannot recommend it enough <3

  5. oops have not read any of them yet, great choice though

  6. Supernatural is one of my favorite shows - great choices!

    Check out my TTT.

  7. I really want to read 'Burn For Burn'! I enjoyed your list, it was cool!
    Here’s mine, please feel free to read it!
    Happy Reading!

  8. Being the Supernatural obsessed person that I am, I loved this post :D Sam & Dean would make these books so much better than they already are, I'm imagining them in Shiver disrupting the romance (possibly by killing someone ahah) and can't stop grinning!
    Can't wait for more posts - new follower :)

    Most recent post on Enchanted by YA:

    1. You're definitely right that they'd make the books better than they already are - I always thought the Shiver series was really in need of some more violence and a bit less romance!
