Creepiest Haunted Houses, Mansions and Castles in Literature

Last week Flavorwire posted a great slide show of the creepiest haunted houses, mansions and castles in literature.  Sarah Seltzer has listed mostly classics in her compilation, but there were a few more modern surprises.  Her list has made me consider updating my To-read list with some classics that were formerly overlooked!

Halloween Costumes for Booklovers

HalloweenIt’s time to start planning that Halloween costume!  There are some especially good ideas out there for booklovers.  Buzzfeed has ideas for 49 different costumes that booklovers will appreciate, while Popsugar has a respectable 21 ideas for literary costumes.  Brit +Co. has some excellent literary costumes including Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With the Wind, Moaning Myrtle from the Harry Potter series, and Max from Where the Wild Things Are (my personal favorite).  Finally, Bookriot has some great bookish costumes just for the little ones.
