The Library Lady Blog

Hi there, I'm the Library Lady, or Andi to most people. This blog tries to focus on aspects of self-care, complete with books, hot baths, and being outdoors or exploring around.

Tis the season for Halloween books! This has to be one of my favorite seasons of the year. The colder evenings, a brisk chill in the air. Beautiful fall colors, pumpkins everywhere, and cozy drinks and warm crock-pot soups. What more could you ask for?

And then comes Halloween, the fun, spooky times filled with shrieks, giggles, and treats. I love sharing the spirit of Halloween with any friends, and for this post, I want to share my love of books and Halloween. 🎃

As usual, let’s start with the kiddos!

Now, for the big kiddos!

  • There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins. Not the creepiest read, which would be perfect for your teens at home. It has all the things teens love, a little teen humor, a little love between the characters.
  • What the Dead Want by Norah Olson. It has a great vintage, creepy feel. The plot has a mysterious feel, where you need to find out what Gretchen needs to find out about her missing mother.
  • How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather. I’ve actually been wanting to read this for a while now. It involves the Salem Witch Trials, and I love anything to do with them. I love it when a good author makes a good story out of such a strange, twisted tale. By the way, she has a newer book as well, Killing November! It’s on my to-read list as well.

And we can’t forget about the adults out there. We need good stuff to read too!

  • Dracula by Bram Stoker. Such a classic, you can’t go wrong.
  • An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks. One of the newest thrillers to come available.
  • In The Woods by Tana French. This is a fun series by French, it includes five books. If you are looking for a new series to start, this is great place to start.
  • A Guide to Haunted New England: Tales from Mount Washington to the Newport Cliffs by Thomas D’Agostino. Why not throw some non-fiction in? Some spooky ghost stories to read by candlelight. Perfect for Halloween!
  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. So I haven’t seen the movie adaptation, but apparently, it is a great scary movie, that was on Netflix. Why not read the book before the movie? We all know books are usually better than the movie. 😉

Well, I think that is it for me today! I’m trying to get through my Halloween reading list, I’m enjoying a few that I’ve picked up. I hope everyone is having a great October. 👻
