The Perfect Halloween Reads

There’s nothing quite like a spooky read that gets you in the mood for Halloween. I mean ABC Family does their best by showing scary — yet family-friendly — movies each night leading up to the night of tricks and treats, but watching a movie is not the same as reading a book. Reading takes place entirely in your own mind. Your brain becomes the fear landscape. Everything feels a little too real. Sometimes causing you to slam the book shut and hide under the covers. Trust me, it’s happened to me before. And I don’t scare easily.

I’ve come up with a list of middle grade and young adult books that I can promise will send shivers down your spine and possibly make you sleep with a night light for a while. If you have any books that you think are great — and spooky — Halloween reads, let me know in the comments!
