This was on both my September and October TBRs but I‘m not 💯 sure I‘ll get to it this month either. I just keep finding new spooky reading ideas! And they‘re all so exciting! How does a gal choose? #chillingphotochalleng #scarathlon #teamstoker #thenumber13 @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick
What a great Halloween story 🎃 ! I have mixed feelings about Rainbow Rowell, but after seeing such an outpouring of love for this on Litsy decided this was one I needed to read, and I‘m glad I did. This one gave me all the feels! #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid
Not my best week. I read 3 books, but only got halfway to meeting my food, movement, and meditation goals. Looking forward to next week being more successful! @wanderinglynn @Hestapleton @StayCurious @Hufflepuffle
This prequel was a great mixture of dark and sweet just like the rest of the Chilling Sabrina world. It was structured to give insights into the inner lives of all the characters. It had little moments that changed the story just subtly enough to make it a really fun read, though I‘ll be more excited to see what comes next than what came before. #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid
I watched Now and Then earlier this month and was totally surprised when the #graveyard scene came on. I‘d completely forgotten about the whole little spooky detective subplot. I still don‘t think this gets it close to being a Halloween movie, but it was a nice addition to October. #scarathlon #teamstoker #chillingphotochallenge @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick
An obvious choice for #raven but it‘s one of the 3 Poe pieces I learned in middle school, and those have always stuck with me strongly. #chillingphotochallenge #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick
I was at 65% when my digital library loan of this expired. The writing is really strong here, but for some reason this isn‘t what I was expecting it to be based on everything I‘ve been hearing about it, and I‘m finding it super depressing. It‘s not renewable, so I think I‘m going to leave it for now instead of putting myself back on the waitlist.
Couldn‘t find this collection from this months TBR by unicorn publishing in the litsy database, but if anyone is looking for a children‘s ghost story anthology this one has the most beautiful illustrations I‘ve seen! #chillingphotochallenge #ghostly #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid
This was a great thriller! I saw most of the reveals coming, though there were a few surprises thrown in, but what really made it great was the pacing. The suspense built so well that I actually stayed up late to finish this because I read it while home alone at night, and was scared to go to sleep before I got to the resolution. This would fit team slaughter‘s themes better, but I‘m glad it made it on my Oct reading list! #scarathlon #teamstoker
I started off hating this. I was thinking the story wasn‘t for me and the narrator‘s voice was grating, but after a few minutes something just clicked for me. It got really funny, and I started to hear the MC in the narrator‘s voice and started enjoying it. It ended up being a fabulous, ridiculous, crazy family rom com with vampires, werewolves, and ghosts. #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid
I‘m currently in the middle of It, my first Stephen King, and I think it‘s one of the first traditional #horror story that I‘m really loving! Usually I stay more in the realm of ghost and haunted houses, psychological thrillers, the occasional vampire... #chillingphotochallenge #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick
Designing Love, Book 3 in the Calderone family romance series (tagged book is book 1 by the same author) will be released October 15th. It‘s the first modern #romantsy I‘ve read in a while and it was really fun. I liked the character development a lot! Thought the buildup of the romance left something to be desired. I‘m giving this a pick because it was a fast fun read, but it‘s definitely a qualified pick, a lot of things annoyed me about this.
I signed up for another round of #lmpbc Group K because I‘ve been having so much fun with MG lately!
There are still spots left in lots of the groups if anyone wants to join Round 7.
This was fantastic! With help from Zelda Fitzgerald, Raissa uncovers the history of an old Southern house & family that built it to try and solve a haunting.
This should fit into the #teamstoker theme. A proper ghost story. #scarathlon
#lmpbc round 5 group k, Thinking of you guys as I read this. How are you? I got the sequels to the Book of Beloved after we wrapped up, & October seems like the season to read them. Book 2 does not disappoint!
My first read of October was a seasonally appropriate slightly spooky mg adventure. In this modern dark fairy tale you get to experience all the atmosphere a cold rainy Vermont October has to offer, warmed up with the magic of watching our mc, an avid reader, escape into her current story come to life. #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid
