Goosebumps titles for today’s biggest books.


October 29, 2021, 2:45pm

It’s Halloween weekend—time for two powerful concepts: outfits and mischief. The outgoing among us might go out and play some tricks; the more introverted might stay inside and read the unofficial book series of Halloween, Goosebumps. But if you don’t have The Werewolf of Fever Swamp or Night of the Giant Everything on hand, you can always give your regular reading an All Hallows Eve-themed twist. To assist you in your Halloween pursuits, I’ve retitled a few of today’s biggest novels in the style of Goosebumps, so no matter what you read this weekend, you’ll be doing it in the Halloween spirit:

Revenge of the White Wife by Raven Leilani

It Came From The Internet . . . And Spoke To A Beautiful Collective Consciousness! by Patricia Lockwood

Tinned Fish at Terror Tenement by Douglas Stuart

The Curse of the Friend With A Book Deal by Sally Rooney

Broadly Made Me Evil by Lauren Oyler

Attack of the . . . Humans?! by Kazuo Ishiguro

There’s A Skeleton in my Pastor’s Closet by Jonathan Franzen

Seek Love and Die! by Garth Greenwell

My Cousin is a Crime Guy by Colson Whitehead
