All Hallow’s Read

31 Oct

As it is Halloween, I thought I would share some literary treats for you to enjoy!

First up, we have a series of morbid, yet beautiful poems via Flavorwire. Get cozy in an armchair and lose yourself in these poems about death & dying. The perfect way to celebrate the day of the dead! http://flavorwire.com/422783/10-beautiful-poems-about-death/view-all/

Immediately after reading these hauntingly tragic poems, I recommend inserting some comic relief into your day by perusing these hilarious ‘Shopping for groceries with the romantic poets’ sketches by cartoonist Jason Novak. http://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2013/10/25/shopping-for-groceries-with-the-romantic-poets/

And if sharing + scary books are  your thing, you should definitely check out Neil Gaiman’s Halloween initiative to get scary books into the hands of children, which he hopes will become a Halloween tradition in the years to come. As a kid, I would have loved to have received some scary books/comics while trick or treating. I think it’s a great idea, and I hope it takes off! http://www.allhallowsread.com
