Greetings you guys! It’s the Tuesday before Halloween and time for Top Ten Tuesday. This week is a freebie, as long as you stick with the Halloween theme. As always, TTT is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.
Halloween isn’t a festival season here in South Africa, but I love the season of chills and thrills and we are ever so grateful for the blogging community to celebrate with. Seeing that I’m a cat and it took me a couple of years to grow into being not a scaridy cat, I will share all my feline friends who are bound to bring you a few thrills this Halloween.

Have a fun Halloween you guys!
This is seriously the cutest post!! Love it!! I have seen the movie adaptations of some of these but haven’t read the books!
Cats can be wicked, but sure make the cutest posts ever.
I forgot about the cat in Coraline! Such a great character. If you’re ever in the mood for a cozy mystery you might like the Diane Kelly series set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The main character has a cat that I imagine looks like Elza! They call her Yeti but her real name is Baroness Blizzard or something like that.
I’m going to take a look at that series right this minute. Thanks so much for sharing!
I’ve read most of these! I didn’t realize there were so many spooky books with cats in them.
AJ! Yea!! How are you doing? I’ve only read about half and I have to admit, I had to search for a few of these… LOL!!
Thanks for the visit – I hope you are doing well!
I just watched the Coraline film recently. Definitely an interesting story… but also one I forgot was a book first. 🙂 Thanks a bunch for visiting my website this week.
I’ve read Coraline years ago, but actually never seen the movie. Let’s make that a yet. I still want to!
Thanks for the visit and so sorry for the late reply….
I just finished Needless Street the other day and what a journey!
A journey indeed… I’ve listened to it on audible and think I need to read it in physical form as well.
Sorry for the late reply!
That is a fantastic twist, I absolutely love it. I did a challenge with cats on the cover once. It was so much fun but they were all different from yours. Just shows how many books like that there are, right?
Thanks for visiting my TTT this week this week is a Top Thirteen of songs that can be played at Halloween.
Hi there Marianne!
Ooooe I’m trying to get up to date with all my comments and it’s taking time…! There are thousands of books out there with cats on the covers. I have twisted TTT so many times to accommodate cat books and I hardly ever use the same books… So cool!
Cats are obviously a very likable topic….
I twist the topics all the time but haven’t done cat books often. Probably because I don’t have one. But I love them.
Some great choices here! I really enjoyed City of Ghosts (and loved Grim!) and Coraline was such a fun spooky book.
I’ve read Coraline years ago and really need to read it again. City of Ghosts are such a brilliant book. I wanted to get to the second instalment this year for Halloween, but it didn’t happen…
Now THAT is a creative post! I’m only familiar with a few of the books, but the covers are all amazing…..and those cats! 🙂 I tried We Have Always Lived in the Castle but it wasn’t a fave. However, I’ve added Last House on Needless St – it sounds appropriately spooky!
Thanks for the visit.

Loads of cats!
I love all these spooky cat books!
I haven’t read any of these books, but the 1990’s The Witches movie scared me when I was a kid and caused me to be scared of paintings for a few years. I also have a theory that all of his books take place in the same universe.
Thanks for visiting my blog! Marie @ Pages to Explore
Love your cat-themed list of books! Such a fun idea…it totally made me smile. 😀
Ooh fun topic choice! I recently read the Hocus Pocus one! I thought it was cute. I was curious to see what their version of the sequel would be like before I watched the movie. It was an interesting take too!
Thanks for visiting my TTT!
I haven’t read the Hocus Pocus book, but it might be fun yes.
Glad you liked our post, hope you will have a wonderful weekend ahead!
This is so cute!! I love the cat in your graphics. So adorable. And I love your spin on this week’s theme!
You have so many great books on the list. Take care and have a wonderful week ahead!
Hi there Sara!
I also loved that graphic and just used it over and over again. LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a good week so far!
What a cute post!
Thank you Lisa!
Such a cute way to showcase bookish cats!
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
Hi there Pam!
Somewhere cats always seem to creep into my posts ….
Fun post!! Have a great week!
Thank you Cindy!
Same to you!
I love that list! And the pictures too!
My favourite cat has to be Carbonel – from Carbonel King of the Cats.
Have a great week!

Hi there Emily!
Glad you enjoyed our post. I don’t know Carnobel, I will have to take a look immediately. Thanks for telling me about it!
Cats often play such a big role in spooky season reads – this is such a cool post! And even though Halloween isn’t a holiday where you are, I hope you enjoy some candy on the 31st in honor of all the cats for Halloween!
Thank you! Yes, cats sure know how to set the tone for a scary read.
I will definitely have some candy on Monday!
Love this post! Fun twist to focus on cats and the visual is adorable. Gotta love Thackery Binx!
Hi there Lindsey!
Thank you! I was quite disappointed that Thackery Binx wasn’t in the new Hocus Pocus. Wasn’t crazy about the new one as whole to be honest.
I loved roald Dahl as a kid- I wonder how they’d hold up now? And Elza would love all the Halloween festivities here- all the kids coming to the door. Well, maybe. I’m not sure what my own cats think of it, TBH.
Roald Dahl is still very popular in our library! Such a classic author indeed. The kids love his work.
I can imagine all the kitties go into hiding. Just to scare the living daylight out of you when it’s all quiet again and they decide to come out….
Great idea of post!
Thank you Emma!
Hope you are doing well!
Great topic for a post! The Cat from Coraline is a personal fave.
I didn’t know Halloween wasn’t celebrated in South Africa. Interesting!
And, yeah, Pet Sematary was super scary.

Church is a scary cat for sure. Shame, pure kitty. Not his fault at all.
Nope, no Halloween here in SA.
Thanks for stopping by Lydia!
Poe is always a good choice at this time of year! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
You can say that again! Love Poe and he always pops up this time of year yes.
Thanks for stopping by!
These cats are so cute!
Some of them are cuter than others, but mostly – all cats are cute!
Fantastic theme and beautifully illustrated, Mareli!
So many great scary cat books!
I also loved the graphic and just used it over and over….
