It’s only two weeks until Halloween so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about my Halloween reads. I’ve owned The Diviners by Libba Bray for two and a half years so I’m excited to finally read it. I’ve just got to be prepared for gruesome murders across 1920s New York City. Watch the creepy trailer! I also thought it was time to select another book from my Roald Dahl box set, so of course The Witches was the perfect choice. I’m hoping to catch the adaptation on TV this month! And lastly, I’m going to get the chance to start the Lockwood & Co. series and read The Screaming Staircase and the sequel The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud. I’ve seen nothing but positive reviews for these books, which see teen ghost detectives spending the night in one of the most haunted houses in England, and trying to escape alive. Spooky!
(I’ve also blogged about more Halloween reads at the end – tell me what you’ll be reading!).
Want more Halloween reads?
If I get the time, there’s a few other books that’d be perfect for Halloween too, like The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel (Vol. 1&2), The Midwich Cuckoos (more science fiction, but described as ‘unsettling’, which is good enough for me), Hollow Pike, Hollow City (the sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse, The Sleeper and the Spindle, The Imaginary, and The Shining Girls. I could also finally finish The Historian!
