This week’s Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books/Movies To Read Or Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit. Okay, so admission time. I’m a total wuss. So though I enjoy the spirit of Halloween, I do it without getting overly spooky. I like the warm-and-cosy-with-spooky-edges type of Halloween entertainment. Here’s what I’ve got in mind:
1. The Harry Potter movies. And the Harry Potter books.
Well, I mean, really. PUMPKIN JUICE.
2. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Because Graveyard and boy named Nobody Owens who’s raised by ghosts.
3. The Nightmare Before Christmas (this goes for Halloween and Christmas equally.)
I just love this story. I dunno, maybe I can relate a bit to the character who just wants to understand happiness and joy but can’t quite get there. Not that I’m all dark and twisty, but I’ve got my dark corners.
4. The Walking Dead
Okay, I was watching it anyway so it’s a bit of a cheat. But it’s gotta count.
I can’t explain why, but I just love Buffy. Angel is good, too, but Buffy is…. well, Buffy.
6. Rocky Horror Picture Show
What’s Halloween without fishnets?
Here are some Halloweeny books I haven’t read yet but want to:
Okay, so not the scariest roundup, but I enjoy some giggles with my creepy. Did I miss any truly great Halloween classics that won’t cause me to give up sleep for a year? Which are your favourites? Share in the comments!
