Ten Halloween Reads

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

It’s Halloween! I’m sure I’m not the only book lover who has books they like to read during a certain time of year. This is a list of books that I recommend to read around Halloween. They are all different genres. Some are “classics” and some are newer. None of them are necessarily Halloween-themed, but they have creepy aspects or creatures that are associated with the holiday.

All titles are linked to their corresponding Goodreads pages.

I haven’t read it yet, but I’m going to assume Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is a good fit for the list. This is one that I definitely want to check out.

Have you read any of these? Tell me what you’d add to the list!
