TOP TEN BOOKS TO GET IN THE HALLOWEEN SPIRIT
Fall is in the air. Halloween is but a week away. It’s my favorite time of year. And it is a great time to curl up with an atmospheric and perhaps creepy book. Here are my favorite books to get in the Halloween spirit.
1. Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier
So very atmospheric.
2. The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern
Every word is a delight.
3. The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman
I highly recommend the audio book of this Newbery Medal winner, read by Neil himself.
4. Her Fearful Symmetry, by Audrey Niffenegger
Makes me want to visit Highgate Cemetary.
5. The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield
7. Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
Classic for a reason.
8. The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova
Longish but very good book about the Dracula myth.
9. The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Spooky and has a library of forgotten books!
Honorable mentions go to Coraline, by Neil Gaiman; The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins; and the Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling.
