Happy Halloween, bibliophiles! 🎃 Since 2020 derailed my original halloween plans (I was going to be Rogue from X-Men, but I’ll probably save that for next year), I just slapped on some dark eyeshadow and drew bats on my face with eyeliner, because why not. We’re carving pumpkins later (I’m gonna try and do the Fargo logo, I’m probably gonna screw it up but it’ll still be fun), and we’re watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice later!
It’s time for another Top 5 Saturday! This was originally started by Devouring Books, and it sounded like such a fun post to take part in. Today’s topic is vampire books, just in time for Halloween! I haven’t read much vampire literature (and let it be known that I will never touch anything related to Twilight with a ten foot
stake pole), but I have some on my TBR, so except for one book, this is all from my TBR.
UPCOMING SCHEDULE FOR OCTOBER:
- Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.
- Tag the original post
- Tag 5 people
Let’s begin, shall we?
Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite, edited by Zoraida Córdova and Natalie C. Parker
This one’s a collection of short stories! I’ve read novels by a few of these authors, but I’m especially excited for what Heidi Heilig has to over. I have this one on hold at the library, and it looks like it’ll be coming soon!
The Fell of Dark, Caleb Roehrig
Besides how amazing this cover is, I am ALL HERE for an LGBTQ+ vampire story!
Empire of the Vampire, Jay Kristoff
I probably won’t end up reading this one for a while (doesn’t come out until next year), but hey, it’s Jay Kristoff. It’s automatically on my TBR.
And of course I had to put the OG vampire book on here! I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while.
I TAG ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PARTICIPATE!
Today’s song (Halloween edition):
That’s it for this Halloween edition of Top 5 Saturday! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and have a spooky Halloween!
