Spookily Good Books to Read this time of year | Halloween Read

So we’ve come to the end of another month, can you believe it’s November tomorrow? Jeez! But before that, today is Halloween, a good excuse for sweets and treats and to dress up as something, or someone, depends what takes your fancy.

Below I’ve listed a few books to read, that’ll get you in the mood for this Spooky day:

  • Anything by Stephen King.

So before I get rotten tomatoes thrown at me or something, I haven’t read a Stephen King book, YET! I have A Bazaar of Bad Dreams on my TBR pile so will endeavor to have a read of one of the stories in the book around Halloween time.

Stephen King is known for his spooky and slightly, or very, creepy books, so is the perfect pick for a Halloween read!

  • Otter Loves Halloween by Sam Garton

I came across this loveable otter on twitter one day and he is just too cute for words. Yes, this book is aimed at children but it was too good an excuse to add the book to the list.

Perfect for young children, this book of Halloween fun will surely have adults smiling and laughing at young Otter’s adventures.

  • The Hidden People by Alison Littlewood

I’ve recently read this book, review to be up this coming month, and have to admit, I couldn’t read this in the evenings. There’s just something about it, and the way it was written, which freaks me out just a bit, nothing is ever truly certain in this book.

The ending is a bit scary and strange too, perfect for this time of year, but I won’t give anything away. This book mainly focuses on changelings and fairy creatures, which can be just as scary as ghosts and ghouls!

  • Grimm’s Fairy Tales

This is not your average fairy tale book, you have been warned!

This is a different, and original take of all those fairy tales you grew up with, all about love and happy endings.

There’s a reason these Fairy tales are called Grimm.
