5 Spooky Books for October
I wrote in my September Life Lately post that I wanted to write some more short posts and not dedicate 3 days and 2000 words to every single topic.
So inspired by my friend, Michelle, who is both brilliant at writing short posts and loves October, here's a little mini post on some of my favourite spooky books for Halloween season.
Now I love a spooky book, and I've loved a spooky book since the Point Horror books of my teens. In fact, until a few years ago I would read any scary book but I was terrified of most scary films (this has changed a lot - I'm planning a post on my favourite scary films soon too!).
When I went through my Goodreads to hunt for my favourite scary books, I found myself with a stupidly long list (what me? Writing a long list? Me who wrote a post so long I lost count of all the points?), and it was also way too hard to pick favourites.
So I went with my gut and went with the first books that came to mind when I think of spooky books (though these are all definitely in my top 10 favourite scary books). Some of these are old classics and some are more recent, but these are all great books for getting you in the spooky spirit this October:
