Get ready for Bookish Tricks and Treats! 
Fall. The start of book awards season. Halloween ( parties!) Highly anticipated book releases... It's a wonderful time to be a reader. There's something about cooler temperatures and falling leaves that makes curling up with a good book seem like the best idea ever (as if it isn't always the best idea ever.) Eagle Harbor Books is giving you plenty of reasons to celebrate throughout the season!

Be sure to join us on Sunday, October 28, for our first ever Halloween Bash. Four fang-tastic YA and MG authors will join us for fun, candy, books and the biggest costume party on the island. (Full information is below!)

Finally, our friends over at EpicReads created a list of books they're looking forward to in October. We've gotta say, it's going to be a scary-sweet month of reading.

From the internationally bestselling children's book creator Matthew Van Fleet comes the story of a hungry little alligator who gulps his way from one to ten. Ten touchable textures, a sturdy chomping pull tab, and a grand finale pop-up are sure to engage the youngest readers.

There's a wall in the middle of the book, and our hero--a young knight--is sure that the wall protects his side of the book from the dangers of the other side--like an angry tiger and giant rhino, and worst of all, an ogre who would gobble him up in a second! The foolish knight is certain that his side of the wall is the safe side in this clever, amusingly meta picture book by the acclaimed creator of It's Only Stanley.

In their first collaboration since the Newbery Medal- and Caldecott Honor-winning Last Stop on Market Street, Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson deliver a poignant and timely new picture book that's sure to be an instant classic. When Carmela wakes up on her birthday, her wish has already come true--she's finally old enough to join her big brother as he does the family errands...

"View the aftermath of 9/11 from the eyes of a Muslim teen. The story is important and real and emotional. Woven among the typical teenage experiences of the main character are the hardships faced by all Muslim people immediately after the twin towers fell - hardships that are still experienced to this day. Those experiences need to be read and felt by everyone who still cannot see beyond the hijab or the stereotypes."
