Want some good seasonal reading to get into the Halloween mood? Here are some of my top YA picks for October.
The Wardstone Chronicles series by Joseph Delaney
These books tend to fall under both the Middle Grade and Young Adult categories, depending on where you are in the series. They’re fun, quick reads, and their universe feels eternally autumnal. Start with Revenge of the Witch. I dare you to be able to stop with just that one.
Another middle grade title to check out is Small Spaces by Katherine Arden. You can read my recent review here.
Finally, I haven’t read Thirteen Days of Midnight by Leo Hunt (not to be confused with the similarly titled and covered Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman) yet, but it’s supposedly a fun YA novel, and it’s set during the Halloween season. I plan on getting my hands on a copy and reading it soon, but didn’t want to leave it off the list just because I haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Also Ray Bradbury books are good for all ages. Some of his seasonally appropriate titles include The October Country, The Halloween Tree, From the Dust Returned, and Something Wicked This Way Comes.
