The Halloween magazines are starting to hit the shelves in both digital and print! I have become addicted to digital magazines. The layout and photography is fantastic and you don’t have to store them or feel back for putting some in the trash.
I swore off Halloween magazines this year, but how can I when the fabulousness of spooky desserts, the kookie cupcakes, frightening foods, and candy corn overtake my visual senses! It just makes me drool all over the cover and it sucks me right in to their spooky little world like fairy blood to a vampire.
You have to be careful which Halloween magazines you choose. I have noticed over the years that some of the smaller magazines that are the size of paperback books tend to run the same recipes in a different order from the previous year with a few new additions. Always check what you have in your magazine library before you head out and that impulse to BUY strikes your poor, soulless, little, black heart to add another Halloween magazine to your collection.
I am not going to judge which magazines I think are the best, however, I am going to give you a list of magazines that are out there to look for . There has be a huge decline in the thickness and quality of the content in magazines that I don’t understand, and I won’t pretend to. Look at the list and buyer beware.
For all you digital Halloween magazine readers, check out Zinio for back issues of Halloween magazines.
