Favorite Bookish Celebrity Halloween Costumes: 2017

Celebrities—they’re just like us in bookish Halloween costumes! I know the holiday is over and the candy is half-off because Christmas and Thanksgiving decor is on sale now, but I can’t not roundup my favorite celebrity Halloween costumes inspired by books. And what better way to come off that sugar high than shaking in front of your computer while looking at some awesome costumes? (And, if you’re anything like me, eating more candy because I never learn…)

In case you missed the memo, Dolly Parton won all the costume awards this year: Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Kelly Ripa and live Kelly and Ryan crew as the box office giant and amazonian badass Wonder Woman.

Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa also brought to life Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale for a truly terrifying costume.
