This is Halloween, everybody scream! October is such a fun month. The leaves are changing (at least up north), Halloween decorations start, and people get ready to read and watch something spooky. Last year we came up with a list of 31 YA Books to Read Before Halloween. This year, we created a Halloween book tag.
Get ready for some mysteries, thrillers and horrors. After all, what’s Halloween season without a spooky book. What’s your favorite October read? Let us know in the comments!
1. Favorite Scary Book
Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Samantha wakes up from a horrible accident with amnesia. She has no idea how she came to be involved in the terrible accident that led to the death of her best friend, Cassie. Before the accident, Samantha had the perfect life: the hottest boyfriend, endless wealth, and a posse of friends. After she wakes up, Samantha tries to reinvent herself and grows closer to her brother’s best friend while the two try to piece together the night of Cassie’s death. This book had a very shocking ending full of many twist and turns. It kept us up at night after finishing just thinking about it. The mystery was engaging and left you dying (pun intended) to piece together the night of Cassie’s death. Definitely snag this one if you are looking for an excellent thriller with an equally stellar romance!
Some of our favorite YA books don’t get enough mentions! We came up with a list of books that you may have never heard of but should definitely check out. Let us know in the comments if you have read any of these!
1. The Blood for Blood series by Catherine Doyle

When a family of five hot boys moves into her neighborhood, Sophie Gracewell is pulled into a decades-old family feud between warring mafia families. Drawn to Nic and his brother Luca, Sophie comes to realize that their families are connected in more ways than one: her father was convicted of murdering their dad, and it may not be a simple case of self defense.
