Halloween Reading List

Oh yes, it is that time of the year! My favorite time of the year! And I need a book list to go with it, obviously. So here is the run down:
  • The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley. Recommended by a friend.
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Because I have never read it. I know, shame on me.
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker. Again, one I have never read. I plan to listen to this one.
  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. Another new one that I plan to listen to.
  • Oh and The Sword of Summer, the new Magnus Chase book by Rick Riordan. Because I wait all year long for his books to come out. I don't care if it's Halloween-y or not. I will read it as soon as I can get it and you can't stop me!
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I always read this one in October, but I may not get to it this year with my other planned reads. 
  • M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman. This is a collection of stories I stumbled across more than a year ago and haven't read yet. I have it as an audiobook and will read it if I finish my others in time.
  • And, if time allows, The Diviners by Libba Bray. New one that I have seen recommended by a couple of book blogs I follow. It sounds spooky, but not scary. Right up my alley.
It started to turn into a list of classics because last year I realized how few of these I had read. It's about time I fixed that.

I also decided to participate in this book challenge by purrfect.reads on Instagram:

Anyone else have spooky reads this year?
