Hi friends! Today I am writing a post on some of my favorite books totally on a whim. I recently have been reading books for fun more, which is fantastic, because I never seem to be reading books as much as I want. And because Halloween is just in a few short days, I thought I would share some of my favorite fiction books!
I was so glad that I found this book at one of those little libraries a few months ago. Despite the fact that I had been reading it for a long time, when I finished it earlier this week, I was surprised by how easy of a read I had been. The book centers around New York in 1880 and little tea shop owned by Adeline Thom and Eleanor St. Clair, the mysterious owners. I assume that this book is very easy to read in the span of a few days, but I read it over the course of a few months and had no trouble picking it after not having read it for awhile.
I’ve had this book for awhile now, but it would seem odd if I left it off the list of spooky books! Someone bought this for me awhile back when I was super obsessed with the BBC Sherlock series( I still sort of am…) and I loved being able to connect the book to the show. As itself, of course, the book is a classic and I hope that one day I am able to finish all of the stories! For now, I will continue slowly making my way through them. 🙂
Cassandra Clare’s book series are some of my favorites. Her first series, the Mortal Instruments Series, focuses on a group called the Shadowhunters in the current time period. The Infernal Devices, on the other hand, are all set in Victorian England. It wouldn’t be too hard to start reading the Infernal Devices without reading the Mortal Instruments Series, but I think it will be more enjoyable to read if you have read all of them 🙂 The Clockwork Angel is the first in the Infernal Devices Series.
Hope y’all enjoyed my not-so-spooky book favorites and have a happy and safe Halloween!
