If you're into witches try: A Discovery of Witches-Deborah Harkness Deborah Harkness' book has recently been made into a smash television series, so if you are in the witchy mood and want to catch up before watching the show, then A Discovery of Witches might be a good shout for this Halloween. It follows Diana, a scholar at Oxford's Bodleian Library, as she unwittingly brings the supernatural into the real world after reading a bewitched manuscript. 2. If you're fascinated by serial killers try: Stalking Jack The Ripper-Keri Maniscalo Jack The Ripper tours have become somewhat of a staple in London, and the spooky season is the perfect time to delve into serial killer inspired stories. If you are a lover of that kind of story, Stalking Jack The Ripper, which follows an upper class woman who ends up embroiled in the investigation of the Ripper murders, might be perfect for you. 3. If you like straight up horror try: It-Stephen King Stephen King is one of the best known names in the horror genre, so if you're wanting a horror classic this Halloween then you can't go far wrong with It. It's quite the commitment, being over 1000 pages long, but if you love creepy clowns then the effort is worth it. 4. If you're a fan of ghosts try: City of Ghosts-Victoria Schwab
