Books I wish I’d read this Halloween­čĹ╗

Hello and howdy!

So Halloween has come and gone with me writing exactly 0 posts for the occasion. #FakeBookBlogger. It’s not like I can use the excuse of “I was just so busy reading Halloween themed books, I didn’t have the time”. No, I’ve just generally not been very festive during the years Spooky Season which is honestly sad.

had to include this somewhere.

I spent my Hallween weekend watch all thee Fear Street movies with my housemate on Friday night. If you haven’t watched them yet, you’re missing out. Theyre so good!! I do recommend watching all three in one go though. Saturday I was working and Sunday I was back on the couch with my housemates watching movies again, this time Scary Movie and the not so Halloween-ey Burlusque.

I also didn’t read any spooky books, so today I come to you with five books I kind of wish I’d been able to read for Halloween :))


The Taking of Jake Livingston by Ryan Douglass

Does this book cover not just scream Halloween? I mean the colours, the ghostly hands reaching out and the terrified look in the eyes of who I’m guessing is Jake Livingston.

The Taking of Jake Livingston is said to Get Out vibes, and the tag line says that this is a horror story where survival isn’t guaranteed as it follows Jake, one of the only black boys at his school. Not only that but Jake can see ghosts and when he meets Sawyer, a troubled teen who killed six of his classmates and then himself who is set on revenge, things get complicated for Jake as everything he knows about the rules of ghosts is thrown out the windows.

It’s no secrete that I am weak for stories where the characters can see ghosts in some way or another so this is right up my alley.I actually was accepted for an ARC of this book this month and was holding out hope that I’d be able to pick it up, but of course that wasn’t the case.

­čĹ╗Halloween Recommendations­čĹ╗

Hellooo ­čśŐ

God it feels like forever since I’ve sat and written a post (it’s been like 5 days but let me be dramatic please). I took a couple of days because I was feeling burnt out and needed to not think about blogging for a little while but I’m back and I’ve got some recommendations!!

Today I’m here with a list of books that I think will make the perfect Halloween reads.

I don’t read proper “horror” novels, I’ve never read Stephen King and all the other classic horror authors. I’d like to but they’re not my thing, I think I’d probably get bored. But I do still think I’ve got a pretty decent list of books that I’m sure will get you in the Halloween spirit and keep you highly entertained ­čÖé
