It’s spooky season once again, and while everybody is gearing up to bring the scares and take it easy on Halloween night this year, there are some beings in the many realms of the known and unknown who are in their heaviest work season of the year—the monsters. Every year, people talk about what a burden it must be for Santa Claus to go about his appointed rounds, but what about those creeps who dole out the frights in October? Don’t they get any empathy? With that in mind, check out this list of books that would be perfect reads for some of our favorite ghouls before they lay their heads down to sleep.

With sweets piling up in homes all over, the question then becomes, what is the best way to consume all of that sticky goodness? To keep that Halloween feeling going leading up to and well after the holiday, here is a look at some perfect pairings of horror novels and candy pieces.

Halloween is going to look a little (um, okay, a lot) different this year. But there’s one tradition that still social distancing friendly, and looks great in a mask: reading scary novels during the entire month of October. Over the years, horror has become somewhat of a Quirk Books specialty. And we’re thrilled to fill your calendar with fright after delicious fright from now until Halloween!

What's better than a cinnamon roll? While we could go on and on about how much we love this sticky sweet dessert, we’d much rather talk about the other cinnamon rolls in our lives – the ones that are too good for this world, too pure. Yes, we’re talking about fictional characters. The very sweetest ones.
