Bookish Halloween Decorations

Happy (almost) Halloween, Savvy Readers! Are you ready for the spookiest day of the year? You’ve probably already got your costume planned out, but what about Halloween decorations?

Halloween decorating is one of my favourite things to do this season(besides eating candy and reading scary books!).
