I’ve always been a huge fan of holidays, and Halloween is one of my favorites. In order to get that feeling to last (hopefully through a whole month of slowly building anticipation), I love to read anything Halloweeny. This month I’ll be featuring books about witches and wizards, so bake yourself some pumpkin snickerdoodles, grab a mug of hot apple cider and curl up with some magical tales. I’ll be featuring some old-school Ruth Chew, the delightful Howl’s Moving Castle trilogy by Diana Wynne Jones and of course, The Witches by Roald Dahl, plus much more!
