Halloween is lurking around the corner, which means other things might be lurking around the corner, too, and I’m really not a fan of getting spooked. While my boyfriend enjoys the scariest movies Netflix and Hulu has to offer, I’m good with a rewatch of Practical Magic or Hocus Pocus to get me into the Halloween spirit. And that extends to books, too — I’m always on the hunt for spooky-but-not-too–spooky reads that make me feel like I’m in on the fun, but won’t keep me up at night. Ahead, find 13 magical, romantic, and creepy books that are fun, not frightening.
