Merlin and I are gearing up for Halloween over here. Here’s a picture of him hanging out with this new buddy, Bill Door.
Welcome to part 2 of Kiersten’s Spooky Book Recommendations. We’re a month and a day away from Halloween, so you still have plenty of time to start getting your creep on. (If you didn’t check out part 1 yet, click here to see what I recommended last time.)
Slayer by Kiersten White – I finished this one a few weeks ago (review here) and immediately thought about how great this would be for Halloween season. It takes place in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, after the comic series ends. The book follows Nina as she comes to terms with the newfound discovery that she’s a Slayer – the last of their kind. It’s hard to figure out what to do with your new identity, however, when demons show up and start wreaking havoc on the world. Clearly, this is all Buffy’s fault.
…Speaking of Buffy, the Buffy graphic novels/comics would be another great series to dive into if you’re looking for something a little shorter to read.
There are some other great graphic novels/comics out there that perfectly fit the bill for Halloween. One of my favorites is the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Filled with witchcraft, occultism, horror, and gore, this one might not be suitable for younger readers though. There’s only one graphic novel available for now, but you can find some of the later volumes of the comics available online pretty easily.
