Goodreads rating: 4.01
A locked door in Coraline’s home has always perplexed her. When she finally opens it, the door leads right into a brick wall. But on her second try, the door opens to an alternate world that’s chillingly similar to Coraline’s own, complete with “other” parents and people with buttons for eyes.
Recommended for those searching for an otherworldly read, or those of us tempted to crawl into a small door in an old house.
The Graveyard Book
Goodreads rating: 4.10
After the murder of his parents, Nobody “Bod” Owens is raised by ghosts and other supernatural creatures in a graveyard. Graveyards are generally considered dangerous for children, but terror and the want for spilt blood are the threats which Bod would face if he ever left it.
Recommended for those who enjoy unconventional reads.
