Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
It’s that time of the year! If you’re averse to horror, maybe some friendly fantasy will keep you company this Halloween.
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I just read this one, and it’s so lovely! Seriously innovative magic system too, and roots (see what I did there) in Polish fairytales.
- The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani. This is a middle grade read, and it’s so adorable! Definitely take a look at it.
- Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Yes, I had to mention this. Alternatively, watch the Studio Ghibli movie! It’s not totally true to the book, but still adorable.
- Sabriel by Garth Nix. You can skip ahead to book two, Lirael, if this one is too slow!
- Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. COMPULSORY HALLOWEEN READ. You’ll laugh so much.
- A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. Bonus for historical setting!
- The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud. Ah, good ol’ classics. If you haven’t read this…what are you doing?
- Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. Stuffed with humour and fabulous characters.
- White Cat by Holly Black. I recently reread this, and it’s so wonderful even the hundredth time around. Another super innovative magic system!
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. Such a great book – absolutely impossible to put down!
What books are you reading this Halloween?
