October 31: Halloween Freebie! (Happy Halloween! Let your creativity run wild with a themed post to celebrate!)
Here’s my Top Ten Magical Books for Halloween. ‘Tis the season for some witches and wizards, spells and curses!
1.Storm Front; Jim Butcher. Wizard with plenty of magic, but less common sense.
2. The Witches; Roald Dahl. Classic children’s magic.
3. Coraline; Neil Gaiman. You need a little spooky for the season. Not all magic is nice…
4. A Discovery of Witches; Deborah Harkness. How about some magical research?
5. Johannes Cabal: Necromancer; Jonathan L Howard. Raising the dead is… not advised.
6. Summon the Keeper; Tanya Huff. Every Halloween needs a cat, and maybe a few portals to Hell.
7. Wyrd Sisters; Terry Pratchett. Not just about witches, but also with some Shakespeare references.
8. The Picture of Dorian Gray; Oscar Wilde. Magic comes with a price.
9. The Golem and the Jinni; Helene Wecker. Two magical creatures meet.
10. Mairelon the Magician; Patricia Wrede. A traveling magician who isn’t what he seems.
