All Hallows Eve is not my forte. I didn’t celebrate its existence as a child, and don’t plan on changing this as an adult. Nonetheless, as a few of my blog lists can attest to, on occasion, I do enjoy a good Gothic period drama or spooky(ish) story. Since I shared a list of eight spooky reads last week, the below list mostly stays away from the ghosts and goblins.
Today, instead of spooky and dark (you can see those books in my “Spooky Reads to Enjoy on All Hallows Eve” list), I pick another kind of theme. My inspiration? The seasonal saccharine treat known as candy corn! That’s right today’s list is inspired by the treat, more specifically its colors. So here are 8 (plus a couple “spooky” reads) with orange, yellow and white on their cover, plus they seem like good autumn or winter reads!
Top Ten Tuesday October 30 | Sweet and Sour All Hallows Eve Books!
2: Elementary, My Dear Watkins by Mindy Starns Clark | The first of our archive-Rissi-reads is this cute romantic comedy. I don’t know how I’d feel about this series as an adult, but way back when, I adored this trilogy. Amazon | Goodreads
4: Turtles all the Way Down by John Green | I’m not really sure why I bought this novel since I’m far from a diehard John Green fan. (Pretty sure it’s because I caved to bookworm pressure.) That said, I did like TFIOS more than I thought, and who knows! Perhaps I will read this one. Amazon | Goodreads
5: Snitch by Rene Gutteridge | Once upon a time I thought this series looked like such fun. Alas, I never did read any of them. Still, who knows! Maybe someday I will get around to picking them up. Amazon | Goodreads
8: The Courteous Cad by Catherine Palmer | Oh, look! Another throwback read. Read this series years ago, so the memory is fuzzy (getting old over here), but if I remember right, it’s an Austen-esque style. Amazon | Goodreads
10&11: From the Start and Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg | Melissa’s books are always magical in their contemporary romance sphere. These two are no different – and are self-explanatory as to why they constantly end up on my Instagram feed this time of year!
12: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White | This is an “am reading” title for me. I’m not too far into it, but so far, it’s intruding! Though I’ll confess, the original novel and I are not acquainted. Amazon | GoodreadsTop Ten Tuesday October 30 | Sweet and Sour All Hallows Eve Books! #Bookish #BookNerd Click To Tweet
