Scholastic Reveals Halloween Reading List

By Dianna Dilworth 

Scholastic has put together its top 10 list for “not-so-scary” Halloween reading.

“Maybe you’re not really into creepy ghost stories and gory movies—that’s totally okay! (Guess what? Me, neither.) Just because you don’t like getting your pants scared off doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, too,” reads the Scholastic blog.

The list that follows includes mysteries that “will take you on fantastic, wild adventures to get you in the Halloween spirit, but you’ll still be able to sleep at night.” We’ve got the entire list after the jump.
