If you like spending October watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hocus Pocus, and Halloweentown - this list is for you. I love all the nostalgic, Halloween vibes with minimal spooks. These books feature all sorts of "monsters" from cute ghosts to angsty vampires to snarky witches. I hope you're able to find some joy and comfort in these autumnal and atmospheric books this spooky season. I also highly recommend watching ParaNorman, Scooby Doo, Vampire Diaries, and Teen Wolf. Happy Halloween!

It's getting tough out there, or in there. While being stuck at home, it seems like we're busier than ever. Working. Baking bread. Watching all of Ozark. Zoom happy hours. Training our dogs to jump over stacked rows of toliet paper.
And then there are those of you with bored kids and cats on your hands. Kids can't go to school. Cats can't go outside. And you don't want to overload them on screen time. Plus cats don't really use phones.
