My Halloween Reads

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!).

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!

  1. Great post, Stacey! I might have to do one too. I spent all of 2013 reading creepy, spooky, frightening YA/MG literature for my graduate thesis…

    DIVINERS is a book that stalks me. Seriously. I see it everywhere. I pick it up and wonder if I’ll like it. I put it back and wait a bit before looking at it again. I don’t know why I haven’t given in yet; every book that’s stalked me (NIGHT CIRCUS, BLYTHEWOOD, and DEFIANCE, to name a few) I’ve ended up loving. That creep-tastic trailer has really pushed me now…

    • Oh yes I’d love to see your recommendations!

      I’ve seen a lot of people reading The Diviners for the first time this year – it’s a sign you should join in!

  2. I really enjoyed The Diviners – can’t wait for its sequel! – and I hope that you will too. Your edition is beyond gorgeous! Super jealous of those Neil Gaiman books in your pile :p

    Happy halloween and may you have a fabulous halloween reading experience! 🙂

  3. I just finished the second Lockwood – read these next, they’re just brilliant! Absolutely loved it and I want the third one already!

  4. Thank you for the reminder of the Witches! I want to reread that now! I have had the Diviners in my list forever too, I might have to sneak that into my reading list soon. You should definitely finish the Historian-that comes over all creepy in the end!
