    Goosebumps titles for today’s biggest books.

    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
