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.

    1. 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.


    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Sabriel by Garth Nix. You can skip ahead to book two, Lirael, if this one is too slow!
    5. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. COMPULSORY HALLOWEEN READ. You’ll laugh so much.
    6. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. Bonus for historical setting!
    7. The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud. Ah, good ol’ classics. If you haven’t read this…what are you doing?
    8. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. Stuffed with humour and fabulous characters.
    9. White Cat by Holly Black. I recently reread this, and it’s so wonderful even the hundredth time around. Another super innovative magic system!
    10. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. Such a great book – absolutely impossible to put down!
