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

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

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.

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

xxjenadanxx I can't wait to read this one. Hopefully my library hold comes through this month. 7d

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

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.

IndoorDame @TheReadingMermaid there‘s nothing seasonal or spooky about this one, but it should still be good for 1 point for #steamstoker 😊 #scarathlon 2w

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

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

TheReadingMermaid Question: does this book take place during Halloween? 2w
IndoorDame @TheReadingMermaid No. Lots of pumpkins and scarecrows, and some Halloween decorations around the neighborhood, but all the action is pre-Halloween. There is a ghost, and a few other otherworldly creatures, but I wasn‘t sure if it really qualified as a ghost story cause that‘s not how I would describe it to someone? 2w
TheReadingMermaid I'm going to say that counts as a Halloween book girl. there are a lot of Halloween elements in this book it sounds like. So I'm going to give it to you 🧟‍♀️ 2w
rather_be_reading cool cover too! 2w
IndoorDame @TheReadingMermaid yay!! plus that‘ll help me gage where the rest of my seasonal picks fall 2w
