Book Recommendations for the Spooky Season

book recs for the spooky season

October is the time for all the spooky books so I thought I’d recommend you some books that I think would be great to read at this time of year. These books have different kinds of spookiness to them, some have a creepy atmosphere, some are scary and some are just books that I thought have an autumnal feeling about them.

The Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag

The Ultimate Recommendations book tag was created by Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx and its a fun tag where you recommend some of your favourite books. I wasn’t tagged for this but I thought it’d be fun to do anyway and I couldn’t stick to just one answer for some of the questions.


1) Recommend a book from one of your favourite genresThree Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie and House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

2) Recommend a short bookEvery Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire and This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

3) Recommend a book-to-screen adaptation – I can’t think of a specific answer for this question. Some tv series I’ve loved are based on books that I haven’t read yet so I don’t think I’ll pick them for this question. Catching Fire would probably be one of my favourite book to screen adaptions so I’ll pick that.


4) Recommend a book out of your comfort zoneIn the Company of Killers series by J.A. Redmerski – This is a dark romance contemporary series about a group of killers/hit-men who are all very morally grey and the first book is about Sarai who has been held captive for a lot of years, she escapes and then ends up crossing paths with the group of killers.


5) Recommend a book seriesThe Diviners by Libba Bray and the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews

8) Recommend your ‘staple’ bookCity of Bones by Cassandra Clare – I don’t know if I’d call this a ‘staple’ book but I love the Shadowhunter world. City of Bones was one of the first books I read when I got into reading (after Harry Potter and Twilight) and I’ve been reading a Shadowhunter book almost every year since then.


9) Recommend the book/s that got you into readingHarry Potter by J.K Rowling, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis and Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

10) Recommend 3+ bloggers who recommend great booksOctavia @ Mermaid Reads, Emma @ Never Judge a Book by its Cover and Sofii @ A Book A Thought.

I’ll not tag anyone but if you want to do this tag you should just do it because who doesn’t love recommending books? What books would you recommend?
