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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Stephen King.  If he’s not Halloween, I don’t know who is.  Seriously.  The man screams Halloween.
  5. 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.
  6. The Dreaming by Queenie Chan.  This manga is perfect for Halloween!  It’s weird and creepy and this school seems very isolated.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Anne Rice.  I’ve read a few of her books, and yet she is someone I associate with Halloween.
  10. Beautiful Creatures/Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  The secrets and curses and history make me think of Halloween.
