{Top Ten Tuesday} Bookish Halloween Costumes


Today we’re joining in on the fun of Top Ten Tuesday with our Favorite Bookish Halloween Costumes.

Strega Nona

from Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola

Strega Nona

There are so many characters who would make adorable costumes. This costume of featuring Strega Nona actually inspired this list.

“I’m a Mouse. Duh.”

We know the Burn Book isn’t technically compelling literature that you can order from amazon. So to keep this bookish, we’ll mention Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials by Rosalind Wiseman, which is written by the author who also wrote the book that inspired Mean Girls.

Your Favorite Superheroes


Superheroes are some of our favorite characters, and there are lots you can choose from to represent. Here are a couple of our favorites.


from Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak


One of our friends posted an adorable pic of her son on instagram (this isn’t him, but you get the idea!), and we knew Max had to make this list.

from Olivia by Ian Falconer


This costume is so adorable, and you can go as simple (or as over-the-top) as you want. We won’t even tell you the story of when we stalked the publisher booth at BEA to get an Olivia bag!

A Kick Ass Heroine


We love heroines who totally kick ass, and we know you do, too. So why not be one for Halloween (or everyday)?

So, that’s our list this week. What’s your favorite bookish Halloween Costume?
