Halloween is here and it is time for reading creepy, scary, and magical books. Once again I have put together a list of my current top 13 Best Lesfic Halloween books 2021. From horror, to heavy romance with just a dash of paranormal, I’m hopeful there is a book for everyone on this list. Also, don’t miss the links on the bottom to check out my Halloween lists from previous years.
Payback’s a Witch by Lana Harper
A really fun book with the vibe of The Other Woman, John Tucker Must Die and The Goblet of Fire, but with sapphic adult witches.
Dead Lez Walking by G. Benson
Anything by Benson is worth reading, add in zombies and it is Halloween gold.
Give Me Grace by Bethany A. Perry
Add in demon fighting nuns and you have one of my favorite dark fantasy books of the year.
The River Has Teeth by Erica Waters
Three words: angry, sapphic, and witches. Think Southern Gothic setting with a paranormal mystery that hooked me in.
The Dead and the Dark by Courtney Gould
A dark and creepy YA paranormal crime/mystery. This has a similar vibe to The River has Teeth so if you enjoyed one you should enjoy the other.
The Lost Girls by Sonia Hartl
Sapphic teenage vampires try to get their revenge on their maker in a creepy John Tucker Must Die vibe.
Reaping the Benefits by E.J. Noyes
Noyes writing a rom-com with a paranormal twist… enough said.
Stay by Mildred Gail Digby
A paranormal mystery with one of my favorite takes on a human/ghost romance.
The Ghost of Emily Tapper by Nita Round (2021 version)
A creepy ghost story mixed with a sweet romance.
The Better to Kiss You With by Michelle Osgood
A werewolf short novel/novella romance. This is heavy romance and light on the paranormal parts.
The Girls Are Never Gone by Sarah Glenn Marsh
A haunted house/lake story that was a good mix of both gross and scary horror.
To Break a Covenant by Alison Ames
A well-written, scary, YA horror book that should not be read in the dark.
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth
Also horror but more in the gross horror category. I was a little mixed in adding this one, but in the end, it is a read that has really stuck with me and I believe it’s a book sapphic horror fans should have on their list. The book version is recommended as the audio doesn’t seem to transfer as well because of things like footnotes.
While these are my current favorite Halloween reads, make sure you check out my Halloween lists from 2020 and 2019. There are books on all three lists that you won’t want to miss.
