Next week is Halloween, which makes this prime jack-o’-lantern carving time. But instead of the usual triangle eyes and toothy grin, why not try something a little different this year? If you’re anything like us at BookTrib, all the inspiration you need is currently sitting on your bookshelf. Here are 15 of our favorite literary pumpkins for 2014:   Harry Potter This pumpkin isn’t scaring anyone; it’s just too adorable. You might need to buy a little paint to pull this one off, but it’s worth it for his spiky hair alone.   Frankenstein A perfect likeness of Frankenstein’s monster. Plus he looks appropriately broody.   The Hobbit Love the image they captured of his back and that familiar logo.…
