Top 5 Wednesday | Favorite Creepy Settings

Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted Sam from Thoughts On Tomes over on Goodreads. This week’s topic is top 5 creepy settings. I don’t read enough horror (working on it), so this was kind of hard!

5 – Rainstorms/Bad Weather


Inspired by my current read, It by Stephen king, rain surprisingly makes things a decent amount creepier! Thunderstorms? Well, there’s a reason they use thunder in scary movies.

4 – Graveyards


I know, I know. Graveyards aren’t really that scary and whatnot, especially not in the morning, but they freak me out! Not during the day, but. Eugh. I’m not great with scary, okay.

3 – Deep, Dark Woods


Tons of books could be used as examples for this one, because what woods setting in a book isn’t used for at least a little spook factor? Looking at you, Harry Potter.

2 – Asylums

*Nope nope nope bad GIF search nope nope nope nope nope*

Fully blame Outlast for this one, I really want to read some books with asylum settings. I know there are a good amount out there!

1 – Abandoned Houses/Hospitals/etc.


This one just speaks for itself, I think.

Well it’s 2 in the morning as I write this, and I’ve spooked myself just from thinking about these settings (and GIF searching). Great!
