Writers Gotta Read, Right? – Halloween/Samhain/Día de los Muertos

It seems to me that the end of October and first of November are just crammed with holidays/celebrations. Wonder why? Not sure if that applies to other parts of the year as well, but just saying, I was struck by this as I settled in to write this post. So, without further ado (but maybe a “Boo!” or two), here is some lists of reading lists as the months turn (with a special non-book-related link at the end).

Halloween (Oct. 31)

Samhain (Oct. 31– Nov. 1)

Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead (Nov. 1–2)

Finally—bonus! bonus!—not books, but for the musically inclined (thank you, Washington Post): The 50 best Halloween songs of all time 

Plenty here to choose from. Pick a book, grab your favorite cuppa, and snuggle up under a cozy blanket. Also, please share in the comments what books you’re currently reading.
