This was a good read for #spooktober! Also was a tour book that I blanked out on so now I‘m embarrassed to request another book! This one was good though so it‘s even worse because the author probably thinks I disappeared because I don‘t like it! :/

Remy waited, shivering, on the wide stone porch as the van crunched along the gravel driveway.

Revisiting one of my favourite #Spooktober reads from last year 🕷 So excited to do her new book next, Such Sharp Teeth

Taking some time read and annotate Youngblood (I owe this book back to a friend).

So far, it's not great, and I'm finding the author is not considering most of the other ideas of vampires that have been printed over the years.

Kat and Taylor relationship remind me of Claire and Bender from The Breakfast Club.
I'm trudging through to give my friend a full thoughts in this story. #spooktober #YA #vampires

Interesting take on monsters throughout American history. Really liked seeing all the ways perceptions twisted and monsters came to represent so many different things over different times

Calling my #Bookspin for #Spooktober! I managed three bingos as well as my #Bookspin and #Doublespin. I found Schiff‘s book thorough in detail but too prone to repetition and scattered musing. Trimming unnecessary ‘what-ifs‘ and digressions would have greatly improved the book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘ll be skipping the November #Bookspin to concentrate on a handful of longer nonfiction. Let‘s hope they read a little better than The Witches!

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Great month!!! 1y

TBH, I had higher hopes for this one, as I love the psy-changeling series. I found this main character annoying, and most of the other characters were unlikable as well. The mysteries were interesting enough to get me to finish listening 🤷‍♀️

Interesting enough origin story as to why The Darkling wanted to make Grisha the rulers of the land. Still doesn't mean I have to feel sorry for him, or like him, though!
