Hi everyone, it’s Allison.
It’s officially time to get into the Halloween spirit.
Here are some books to help you out!
1) The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat by Stan and Jan Berenstain
This is a classic book from my childhood, and it was the first book that came to mind when I thought about books and Halloween. I guess it has really stuck with me, hasn’t it?
2) The Legend of Sleepy Hallow by Washington Irving
This is a classic book for Halloween. What is my favorite version of The Legend of Sleepy Hallow? WISHBONE! (Click for YouTube link)
3) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
A ghost hunter & a homicidal ghost? The perfect combination to get you into the Halloween spirit.
4) Dracula by Bram Stoker
Admittedly I haven’t read Dracula yet but I have always planned on it. I mean, it’s a classic novel, and it’s about vampires. What would Halloween be like without vampires?
5) Possess by Gretchen McNeil
Demons. Possession. Murder. Mystery. Need I say more? This book definitely has the spookiness that is required for Halloween in spades.
6) A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Reading all about the “Members of the Order” is the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit. Plus, it’s Libba Bray, and you can’t go wrong with that!
7) The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
This book sent chills up and down my spine when I read it – very suspenseful and creepy which would make for a good novel for Halloween.
8) Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again…” This book really is a classic gothic psychological thriller. Also, Mrs. Danvers is CREEPY!
9) Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery by Deborah and James Howe
A vampire bunny? Yes, please! This book is super cute, and entertaining, and all these years later it has stuck with me, and made me think of Halloween.
10) The Goosebumps Series by R.L. Stein
What Halloween book list would be complete without R.L. Stein? Some of these books still creep my out and I’m twenty-five years old!
What are some of your favorite books to get you in the Halloween spirit?
