Ten Not Too Scary Books to get you in the Halloween Mood
1. World War Z; Max Brooks. A very thoughtful zombie story–more about the price of war than the undead.
2. House of Leaves; Mark Danielwski. A creepy architectural tale, about a house that’s outside dimensions don’t match the inside, and it gets weirder the farther you go.
3. No Rest for the Witches; MaryJanice Davidson, Lori Handeland… A cute collection of romances in a magical town.
4. Welcome to Night Vale; Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor. A town in the desert where all conspiracies are true–developing the backstories of characters from the podcast.
5. Graveyard Book; Neil Gaiman. A story that takes place in a cemetery with plenty of ghosts is great for Halloween.
6. A Monster Calls; Patrick Ness. A short, dreamy story, where the lines of reality are blurred.
7. Emily the Strange: Piece of Mind; Rob Reger, Buzz Parker… About a 13-year-old girl who makes monsters, with plenty of spooky pictures.
8. Station Eleven; Emily St John Mandel. A dark and lovely end of the world story.
9. Witches Abroad; Terry Pratchett. Witches and magic and fairy tales gone awry.
10. The Replacement; Brenna Yovanoff. A dark fairy tale, about what happens to those changeling children the fairies leave behind.
