Not-So-Scary Halloween Book Recommendations

(For those not able to see the video, click here)

I hate reading scary books – I get terrified by them! So I thought I would put together a video full of books that are perfect to read at Halloween if you’re like me and get frightened easily. There are creepy inns, haunting pictures, and dead bodies! Enjoy!

Books Mentioned:

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – With pictures to help tell the story, now is the perfect time to read it as the film is released in 2016.

Glimpse by Kendra Leighton – Based on one of my favourite poems by Alfred Noyes, Glimpse is about a girl who has lost her memories and a boy that haunts her in her dreams.

Dead Romantic by C.J. Skuse – In this hilarious novel, two girls set out to create the perfect boy from body parts that they collect. Think Frankenstein for a teen audience.

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson – One of my favourite books of the year, The Name of the Star explores what would happen if the Jack the Ripper murders started happening all over London again with a supernatural twist.

    I really NEED to read the Mrs. Perigrine’s … series! My favorite scary book I’ve ever read was House by Ted Dekker. I don’t read scary books much if at all, because I don’t enjoy them as much, but I really enjoyed House. I’ll have to check out the books you mentioned.
