Spooky Season Post #2 | Middle-Grade Spooky Books! 20 Scary Titles, plus: 2021 New Releases 🎃

 🎃 Hi, bookish friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day full of the best spooky reading! 🖤 Another day of October and another spooky post to enjoy the season of horror! This time I’m super excited to bring you 20 intriguing, atmospheric, and somewhat spooky titles belowing to the Middle Grade genre. 🌙 In this second post, in this month’s series of spooky posts, I want to share with you books, as I already mentioned, within the Middle Grade genre, but always focusing on the scariest titles. 🦇 Of course, within this genre you won’t find such dark atmospheres or such disturbing king od stories, as there are in more adult genres, but of course I wanted to share these stories with you anyway because I think if you’re not a big fan of being scared or if all this horror stuff isn’t that much for you, I think with these books you can feel a little bit more comfortable but you can also enjoy a little bit of Halloween vibes without being too extreme.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Another plus, besides the fact that I love reading this genre, is that I find that all these books have something in common, and that’s that they don’t have SO MANY pages, that itself, combined with the lightness of the genre, I think it will give you a super entertaining quick reading experience for this season. 😊 Books I’m sure you can read in a couple of sittings, which is great for when you want to get into the spirit of celebration, but don’t have a lot of time.

That being said, in today’s post I haven’t only decided to compile a list of those 10 titles that I think stand out for this season, but I’ve also added 10 more Miggle Grade titles released this 2021!💀 It seemed like a good opportunity to promote these new releases that sound really spooky and entertaining. 😍
I hope you enjoy today’s post, that you find lots of titles to to add to your TBR & obviously, that you let me know everything in the comments, don’t be shy, you know I love talking to you!
Thank you SO much for the support you give to this series 🥺, I love doing it, so without further ado LET’S BEGIN!
🎃 

‼️ All books will have a direct link to Goodreads in case you want to add them.

ARC Review | Fantastic Tales of Nothing by Alejandra Green & Fanny Rodriguez

TitleFantastic Tales of Nothing

By: Alejandra Green & Fanny Rodriguez

SeriesMaybe

Pages: 320

PublishedNovember 17th, 2020

By: Katherine Tegen Books

Genre: Middle Grade – Fantasy – Magic – Graphic Novel

Buy itBook Depository | Amazon


In the first book of this full-color fantasy graphic novel series filled with humor and hijinks, the fate of the land of Nothing hinges on Nathan and an unlikely team of magical beings to save the day—perfect for fans of Amulet and Estranged.

Welcome to Nothing! Despite its name, this is a fantastic land where humans and magical volken coexist peacefully—at least they try . . .

This is the tale of Nathan, an ordinary human (or so he thinks) living an ordinary life (or so he wishes). Everything changes when he meets Haven, a mysterious creature who is neither human nor volken. Oh, and the two of them are being chased by volken mercenaries—a grumpy wolf named Bardou and a delightful crow named Sina.

Nathan soon learns he has mysterious powers, even though humans aren’t supposed to have magic. But there’s no time to dwell on that because this discovery sets the group on a perilous quest across windswept terrain, through haunted forests, and in ancient tombs. Nathan and his unlikely friends must prevent an impending war and defeat a dark evil to save their land.

No pressure, of course. If they fail, everything will turn into, well . . . nothing.

Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.

She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.

When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.

And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.

When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

It wants the truth.
