    Lovely selection of Halloween themed books. We have 2 little bookworms here and we tend to give seasonally themed books to them at Halloween, Christmas and Easter. There’s quite a few books on your list that we’ve not read but I am sure they’d love so off to buy them now. Thanks for the book ideas even though my bank balance might not thank you!!

      Yes i tend to do the same, i think it’s nice for them to have books on the bookshelves that are relevant to the time of year! I apologise to your bank balance and hope it hasn’t been affected too badly lol! xx

      I really wanted to do a Halloween basket for the boys this year but as per usual, left it too late, so they’ve got a heap of new Halloween books on their bookshelves instead! xx
