I usually am not the type of person to read a specific genre depending on the time of the year. Thematic readings and myself normally don’t get along. But this year I have decided to try my luck and read a few “scary” books for Halloween.
Therefore I have also decided to share with you my TBR for these last two weeks of the month of October which represent the Halloween period.
Halloween isn’t a very famous holiday here in Portugal. Sure, nowadays we have the costumes and the horror nights and the whole Halloween spirit but it’s not particularly ours. We kind of borrowed it from other cultures.
But I’ve always admired the way American people celebrate Halloween and always wished we had something like that here. We normally used this holiday as a way to visit our family’s graves and remember the dead. It’s when we are more conscious about the spirits around us and respect them.
Still, I have decided to be slightly thematic and read a few books I consider to be “spooky” or simply “Halloween-ish” enough. Let’s see how it goes 🙂
