October is for a lot of people what we call the spooky season. It’s the time of the year when it’s allowed to wear dark all the time (I mean, I already do it all year long but you know) and to read/watch tons of awful and scary stories. I’m a huge fan of the spooky season because, as I was born on the 17th of October all my birthday parties were Halloween themed and I ended up loving everything witchy and scary. I therefor read tons of books which could fit this theme, but decided to only go with three this year. If you want to find more recommendations from me, please check out the blog post I wrote last year!
Without further ado, here are three books to read this Autumn to get into the spooky mood!
(Please excuse me for the lack of posts last week. I’m now back in the game and ready to catch up with everything, including reading your posts!)
❥ NIMONA BY NOELLE STEVENSON
I read this graphic novel years ago but still think it’s the perfect read for Autumn. It’s about a girl who wants to become a villain and therefor starts working with one. It’s a story about friendship which grows wherever you last except it, and mostly about magic and tricks. Enjoy knowing more about those dark and complex characters!
❥ TRULY DEVIOUS BY MAUREEN JOHNSON
I only read Truly Devious recently but boy oh boy did it freak me out. (Granted, I do get easily scared while reading.) This YA novel is a murder story taking place in a boarding school for genius, and you follow two storylines, one with the murders which happened in years and years ago, and one with the murder happening nowadays. It’s well written, you won’t be able to stop reading and you will definitely get spooked.
Representations: there not talked about a lot but there is a non binary character and ones who wears the hijab
❥ THIS MONSTROUS THING BY MACKENZI LEE
I read this book years ago as it was a birthday gift from one of my dearest friend, and it still is one of my favourite books of all time. It’s a YA retelling of Frankenstein and one of the best retellings I have ever read (it is important to note that I love Frankenstein a lot too). It is super eery, weird and creepy, and it’ll definitely get you into the spooky mood.
And that’s it! Have you read any of those? I hope you loved them!
What book would you recommend to get into the spooky mood?
