Bookish Halloween Instagram Captions

We all know that the hardest part of Instagram (if you can even call it that) is thinking of the perfect caption. But being as versed in the bookish arts as we are, why not turn to book quotes to solve all your caption woes?

I was inspired by this post, by Rya (@RyaMarrelli) over at The Savvy Reader to make a list of Halloween-themed book quotes to accompany your spooky Instagram photos in the upcoming weeks! I hope this helps you get into the spooky spirit!

When you’re channeling the #threewitches-vibe with your two besties:

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.” 
-Shakespeare, Macbeth



For your spiffy undead-selfie:

“Good luck is just bad luck with its hair combed.”
-Stephen King, Everything’s Eventual: 14 Dark Tales


Please tell me I wasn’t the only one that had a cartoon-crush on Victor?!


When your Halloween party is #gouls:

“Hell is empty / And all the devils are here”
-Shakespeare, The Tempest



For your typical couple costume:

“And so, being young and dipped in folly / I fell in love with melancholy”
-Edgar Allan Poe, Introduction to Romance


When you finally have an occasion to wear that super dark shade of lipstick you’ve been saving all year:

“You have witchcraft in your lips”
-Shakespeare, Henry V


I’m not the only one who chooses their costumes on a basis of badass makeup, right?


For the costume that channels your inner kid:

“Grownups are the real monsters, he thought.”
-Stephen King, It


And finally, for all you heathens that take delight in scaring the crap out of the rest of us with your eerily realistic costumes:

“To die, to be really dead, that must be glorious!”
-Bram Stoker, Dracula



Do you have any particularly spooky-quotes in mind for your Halloween-themed shenanigans? Let me know! Happy Instagramming and happy Halloween!

I'm Emma Kath. Welcome to my blog! This is where I post my original book reviews, litstyle (lifestyle for the lit-nerd), and other bookish things. A little about me: I'm Canadian, and currently a student majoring in English lit and cultural studies. I'm an introvert (INFJ, if you believe in that sort of thing), sarcastic to the bone, I love art and history, and hope to one day travel around a bit. Until then, I'll be reading, writing, and trying to spread a little kindness around the internet. If you have any questions or inquiries, feel free to contact me!
