With Halloween just around the corner, and the storm brewing on the East coast, like me, you’re probably in the mood for a scary (or scary fun) read.  Some are new releases, some are old favorites, some cozy, some creepy—all organized by category of monster. Enjoy, and have a spook-tacular Halloween!
