Depending on where you live, it might be hot outside still. Sweatshirts might be the last thing you want to consider putting on your body, too. But with Halloween coming around the corner and the cooler winds of fall, you’ll want to start planning for all things spooky, scary, fun. There is a bumper crop of amazing bookish Halloween sweatshirts to choose from this time of year, and you’ll want to order ASAP to get them in time for sporting all season long. Bonus is if you’re anything like me, Halloween season lasts for 12 months, so these bookish Halloween sweatshirts will be doing their job keeping you warm well after the calendar flips to November.
Whether you’re a fan of the ghastly or a fan of all things pasteloween, there is a bookish Halloween sweatshirt for you. I found skeletons and ghosts, kitty cats and bats, haunting everything from bookstores to libraries and even cozy reading nooks. Any of the options below promise to be the perfect reading uniform as the nights grow longer and days become cooler.
Cheers to the season of the witch, book lovers. We know that this is the best time of year to read our hearts out besides a crackling candle, open windows, and the soundtrack of crunching leaves.
All of the sweatshirts are crewnecks unless otherwise noted. Not all are especially size inclusive despite the fact fat people have money and like clothing, too.
