TTT: Books I Always Want to Reread Around Halloween


This week's TTT topic: Halloween Freebie which I am deeming "Books I Always Want to Reread Around Halloween

I LOVE Fall. It is my favorite season. I love the feel of leaves crunching under my boots, the smell of the leaves with the frost, the slight chill in the air, and the fact that I get to break out my sweaters. I love sitting, slightly cold with a cup of warm tea. There are certain books I always want to reread around this time of year because they just fit the season so perfectly.


Why: These two books are Tam Lin retellings where the climax of all the action takes place on Halloween night. They are the perfect Halloween read. (Though I've reread The Perilous Gard more simply because it is easier to read quickly.)


Why: I mean the title, but this book takes place around this time of year though it's ultimately centered around November 5th celebrations and concepts.


Why: Both of these books have great Halloween scenes and capture the feeling and spirit of the time of year incredibly well.


Why: Looking at the cover just makes me feel in the Fall mood. But so do many of the descriptions in the book.


Why: This is a book that takes place over several seasons, but I love rereading it at this time of year because this is the time of year I read it the first time and I associate it with Fall now.

What are some of your books to read at this time of year?

Enjoy whatever type of fun you may be having this evening! (Even if it is turning all the lights off and pretending you're not home. We've all been there.)

  1. I usually like to re-read Harry Potter, at least the first book this time of year, but I picked up The Chronicles of Chrestomanci at the library used bookfair and hoping to get to that in a few days.

  2. I always think if I reread Fire and Hemlock *very* slowly I would not be so confused at the end!

    1. That ending is so confusing. Just when I think I can fully grasp and explain it....nope.
