One final one for #Halloween. It‘s also my #doublespin and gives me my first and only #bookspinbingo for October.
Last year I treated myself to a print copy of the tagged after listening to it for the first time. This year my treat was this Dracula nutcracker because it‘s the perfect mashup of my 2 favourite things! 🎃🧛‍♀️🩰🖤❤️

TheAromaofBooks No matter which bingo board you are using, a bingo is worth 20 points and clearing the board is an extra 100 points. Also, BookSpinBingo counts as a readathon, so any hours spent reading books from your list get the readathon points as well!! 4w

Is it just me or was anyone else bothered by the amount of 'touching' in this story? Lots of fingers being suddenly intertwined without there having been any character or relationship development. A cute read still 3.5 🌟

I haven‘t read any Lovecraft in years but it must have stuck with me because parts of this novel were just so beautiful and familiar. Lots of really disturbing s*** going on there too. I had goosebumps through much of it. A solid read, I‘m looking forward to watching the adaptation next. 4.5🌟

Another great ghost story from Simone St. James! Multiple story lines that intertwine and all come together so cleanly in the end. 2 women who attended a now-closed girl‘s school decades apart were found murdered. A good look at how the presence and absence of family can both negatively impact a life. But the grass is always greener…. The audiobook version was great. 4🌟

I've wanted to read this one for so long. Despite a few hiccups towards the end, I finished our #TeamHendrix #teamread for a whopping 870 points!
Much of this read like a spooky cozy, so I was REALLY thrown when the horror kicked into overdrive. Still, it's a pick for me and the audiobook version was super well performed.

Read-y_Picker @Enchanted_Bibliophile @wanderinglynn Yes, i kind of agree but I enjoyed so much of it maybe I'm just too much of a wuss for the really scary parts? There were definitely other aspects that rubbed me the wrong way too, but I tried to just brush them off for the most part. One that comes to mind was to always mind your husband and never ask why. I personally just can't abide by that attitude but I understand it's out there... 2mo

Another long-standing one off my TBR. This was a lot of fun! The audio was a bit difficult to get into, as the author uses a lot of repetition. I had to rewind a few times just to make sure I wasn‘t hallucinating and the app wasn‘t glitching. I‘ll probably try to read the next one though.

Thanks to all of you raving about Empire of the Vampire for making this happen finally lol

One more, probably my last for September‘s #aam.
This is a cute collection of short stories revolving around a cottage and its various inhabitants over several generations. Really sweet and the audiobook was only about 6hrs but I found myself less interested as Hoffman brought the stories closer to modern times. Some of the enchantment was lost for me with the last few chapters. Still recommend 3.75🌟

Now to finish that other blackbird tale…

Cora the girl with 2 💕 works as a resurrectionist procuring bodies for medical professionals and exhibitionists. It‘s the best way to make sure her own biological secret isn‘t discovered and she won‘t end up in her own clients‘ collections.
On the fence with this one. Was a bit of a slog, then a whiplash denouement and IMO weak finale. Very PG, period mystery if that‘s your bag. 3.5 🌟

Such a great ‘new‘ series. I jumped into this one even without being up to date on The Chronicles of St. Mary‘s and it didn‘t disappoint. There were some light references to events that occurred before this spin-off but it didn‘t ruin anything IMO. Great new and old characters, a continuously moving storyline, surprisingly textbook conflict resolution. A great weekend read and my September #BookSpin selection. 5🌟

Can I say I LOVED this one?? Super pick from me. 5 🌟 maybe due in part to how disappointed I was by the audiobook of Practical Magic. I didn‘t have the highest of expectations for this prequel but it ended up being a perfect origin story. The plot never got dull. The characters were well written, everything flowed seamlessly and tied beautifully into the next part with which I‘m already so familiar. I can‘t wait to dig into the next one.
