An absolute gem of #horror short stories, especially YA horror. My favorites were In the Forest Dark and Deep, a disturbing tale of the March Hare and tea parties; Hide and Seek, a story about a girl who has 24 hours to win a challenge against death; and The Girl Without a Face, a wonderful psychological terror. That one gave me all the creepy feelings 💀🔪

Succubus Blues | Richelle Mead
post image
Mehso-so

This book kept me company during my tattoo appointment. It was a decent read and mildly entertaining. I found the main character to be quite selfish and annoying. I get that she‘s a succubus, but her flighty behavior got old fast. The only thing that kept me going was the relationship between her and Seth. Not sure if I‘ll continue with the series though. 3/5 🌟

#paranormalromance

xxjenadanxx This is one of my favorite series! Sorry you didn't love it. :( 3w
AmandaEve @xxjenadanxx 😕 I didn‘t hate it! I‘m interested to see how her relationship develops with Seth over time. I definitely understand she‘s a flawed character so I‘m curious to see how she grows. I enjoyed her group of friend, she definitely cares a lot about them 😊 3w

Perfect way to dive into the spooky season! 👌🏽💀👻🔪 An adult version of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Perfect for fans of Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark, or anyone looking for that horror nostalgia. The illustrations are wonderfully creepy. The last couple of short stories were my favorite 4/5 🌟

The fiancé and I had a joint birthday celebration trip to New Orleans. Until a few weeks ago, we unknowingly booked our trip the same weekend his brother and sister-in-law booked theirs! A live podcast show, ghost tour, trip to Faulkner House Books, Bourbon St, Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, and multiple hurricanes later, we are so sad to leave this lively city. We‘ll be back soon!

The fourth book in the BDB series. I thoroughly enjoyed Butch‘s story! He is so dang sweet! I found Marissa to be a bit prissy and unsupportive of Butch at times, but given her background I can understand why. Butch and Vishous have such a tight-knit friendship and I‘m so glad this book leads into V‘s story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This books was exactly what I needed to get me out of my reading slump! Andie has the perfect summer planned until her father‘s political scandal turns everything upside down. As a last-minute resort she takes on a dog-walking gig for the summer and is forced to spend time with her dad. I loved the dynamics within the friend group, how Andie and her dad break down their walls, and of course, what‘s a YA book without a romance! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

AmandaEve @TheDaysGoBy ohh a palm reading, now that is neat! Great idea. Oh yes, Cafe du Monde is a definite. My fiancé will love Preservation Hall! Thanks! 3mo
TheDaysGoBy @AmandaEve You‘ll likely have to book Preservation Hall in advance. The venue is super tiny and I know we ordered our seats. Otherwise it‘s standing room only and they cut off the line once they reach capacity 3mo
AmandaEve @ImperfectCJ thank you! We‘ve been delaying it for 2 years lol we just felt overwhelmed by it all and kept pushing it back. We‘re ready now and we‘re going with an all inclusive package which is so helpful! Oh yes, the food decisions will be fun 😄 3mo
TheDaysGoBy @AmandaEve And the palm reading I did at Rev Zombie‘s. It‘s less crazy than the other voodoo shop - Marie Leveau‘s. The psychic does different thing on different days, but you‘ll have up book either the night before or first thing in the morning as spots fill up quick 3mo
AmandaEve @TheDaysGoBy ohh okay good info to know! I‘ll have to write this down and look them up. Thanks for the awesome recommendations! This will definitely help. I‘m even more excited now! 3mo

Whew, this was intensely dark and disturbing, but so beautifully written. This one took me a while to finish. I had to put it down multiple times. That being said though, the characters are so layered and complex, some more likeable than others. The friendships formed are so intriguing, to experience such horrifying things together creates such a unique bond. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
