Book Blogger Hop: Fall (and Halloween!) Reading
Question: With Autumn upon us and Halloween drawing near, what books remind you of fall? What ones do you enjoy reading that are about autumn?
Autumn ... and Halloween. Because they go hand-in-hand, right? Here are a few from BOTH of us (mom and daughter).
1. The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare -- Mom read this in middle grade and passed her copy down to Daughter. The story still holds up and the writing is wonderful.
2. The Headless Cupid by Zilpha Keatley Snyder -- Daughter reads this every year. It's a favorite! Interestingly, it seems this book has made the American Library Association's list of the one hundred most frequently challenged books for 1990-2000, due to the use of witchcraft by the children.
3. Never Hit a Ghost With a Baseball Bat by Eth Clifford -- this (and the other books in the series) were a HUGE hit with Daughter when she was a tween. They come with her highest recommendation.
4. All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn -- this book gave Daughter the shivers...
What are some books you can recommend to YA readers for fall?
