Ten Books/Authors To Get Me Into The Halloween Mood
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year, and I still like dressing up in costume! There are some books and authors I associate with this time of year, and these are my top ten books/authors I associate with Halloween and fall.
- Harry Potter. I swear, Harry Potter is my answer to everything. But I always associate the series with Fall/Winter, and it’s the perfect series to get me into the Halloween mood.
- Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. I totally admit that I like the t.v. show a lot better than the books (the repetitiveness of the books is what made me stop the series halfway through) but the mystery and craziness of A is something I associate with fall and Halloween.
- Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I recently read this one and it’s really creepy and a good Halloween read.
- Stephen King. If he’s not Halloween, I don’t know who is. Seriously. The man screams Halloween.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This circus seems very much like a book that will get you in the Halloween mood. I think it’s because it’s a very different circus, and the magic seems very Halloween to me.
- The Dreaming by Queenie Chan. This manga is perfect for Halloween! It’s weird and creepy and this school seems very isolated.
- A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. I’m not completely sure why I associate this series with Halloween, but I think it’s the magic and the Gothic vibe that the series has.
- The Name Of The Star by Maureen Johnson. This series about ghosts and the people who can see them is perfect for this time year.
- Anne Rice. I’ve read a few of her books, and yet she is someone I associate with Halloween.
- Beautiful Creatures/Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The secrets and curses and history make me think of Halloween.

Harry Potter is great for every season, but I agree Autumn/Winter, especially Christmas are particularly good times to read it.

Harry Potter definitely works for anytime of year, but I will forever associate the series with autumn/winter.
I remember being quite surprised the first time I read a Stephen King novel. I was expecting cheesy horror, but discovered how thoughtful and introspective his novels can be, as well. Truly a master of the genre.
His books are more thoughtful than I think a lot of people would expect, and when I think of horror, he’s the first author I think of.
Hi! I read an Anne Rice book (forget which one). It was too scary for me. haha
Horror isn’t for everyone…especially Anne Rice!
Oh my god I seriously need to read The Night Circus. I’ve heard such great things, and the title just screams amazing. YES.
The Night Circus is amazing! I haven’t listened to the audio book of it, but I’ve heard really good things about the narration. I think it’s narrated by Stephen Fry (but don’t quote me on that), and one of my friends LOVES the audio version of it.
HARR POTTER IS THE BEST NOW I AM DYING IN FEELS THOUGH. *dies cause feels are real* also I looove the Night Circus it is the best book ever. I have also read the crowns game which is basically a ripoff of it so me NOT HAPPY
I read The Crown’s Game too, and I was surprised by how much it reminded me of The Night Circus!
I basically said the EXACT same thing in regards to including Harry Potter on my list this week! =D But it’s so accurate so I feel no shame!
