I enjoyed this one. Quick, fast paced read. Not without its flaws. But loved the idea behind this. Reminds me of Hocus Pocus but that‘s ok, since it is one of my favorites. This could be an annual October read for me.

When you have no idea what to read next. an anthology, an ARC and two YA novels you have been meaning to get to. Along with a shelf of over 100 books (and counting) left to read. Reading all the books is overwhelming 😫

This is what I have wanting in a thriller. I have been in such a dark, disturbed mood lately when it comes to what I choose to read and this fit the bill. And it did it so well. If you have been looking for a non typical thriller this is for you.

Welp, this was a DNF. I did not like the writing style. All the characters were beyond likable, they were just downright ignorant, childish, spoke to each other worse than 3 year olds. I‘ll pass on this one.

Love & Luck | Jenna Evans Welch
Mehso-so

This was an okay read for me. YA is hard for me. I don‘t relate, but have to remember that at one point, not so many years ago, I did relate. I had those feelings, made those mistakes. I enjoyed the characters, the relationships, the rebuilding of relationships. I am opening my reading boundaries, and this book helped me to that.

Go read this book. It is tough. It is heartbreaking. Some essays will make you cringe. But in the end it is worth it. 100%. Borrowed this from the library but will be purchasing my own copy very soon.

Between a pick and so/so. Absolutely not my favorite of her books. I love Sophie Kinsella for the laugh out loud aspect and when I‘m just looking for a fun read. This wasn‘t quite that. Still decent, but I enjoy her other work more.

Unbury Carol: A Novel | Josh Malerman
Bailedbailed

DNF. I had high hopes. I love the concept and the idea of this but the author tried to execute it in a very strange way. Part fantasy, part horror, part western? Too much for me. Maybe at another time I‘ll come back to this, but for now it‘s going back to the library.

whippoorwill815 I had the exact same experience with this one. Mine also went back to the library as a DNF, but maybe another time. (edited) 13mo
