Hey pals, For a special Halloween edition of my Top 5 Recs posts, I had to ask my friend Aisling for her spooky book recs. I couldn't think of anyone better for this month. Ash and I have worked together many times on blog posts over the years. I trust her with everything gothic, vampire, supernatural, and horror. I hope you enjoy this guest post, and find something to read this Halloween Season!
