Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year, and I really love watching horror movies, spooky TV episodes, and reading creepy stories throughout the month. I think it’s a fantastic holiday because it brings out the creativity in people, and everyone can bond over their love for tales!

I started this series early on this year, and it’s fabulous! There are several different main characters, but the first two books are told from the point of view of Elena, the only female werewolf in the world. Not the most original concept, but Armstrong has a gift for writing loveable characters. If you’re looking for werewolves, witches, ghosts, demons, or more, then this series is for you.
Want a thrilling novel with an unreliable narrator? OF COURSE YOU DO. Mara Dyer (so far) is one of my favourite trilogies, and the grand finale is out in just a few days, so you don’t have long to catch up so you can freak out with everyone else!
I’ve read all three of Flynn’s books, and Dark Places is the best so far. The mystery was very well done and it was completely captivating. And I didn’t hate every single character! Success.
I’ve loved this series since I was eleven. It’s one of the most well thoughtout series I have ever read. Cirque du Freak starts with the main character, Darren, as a boy, and the Saga follows him as he grows up and matures, and the writing matures along with him. It’s fantastic.
This wasn’t my favourite book, but I think everybody should read it for the magnificent style that Bray writes in. The Diviners is set in the 1920’s, and the writing completely fits the setting. There is a very creepy murderer on the loose, which makes this a great Halloween read.
I read this one years ago, but I remember really enjoying it. It’s a ghost story, and it’s one of the few that actually managed to scare me.
