When Poppy begins to nanny for Ryan‘s kids, it‘s the perfect opportunity for everyone to find exactly what they need. With classic Halloween activities, like pumpkin-carving (#jackolantern) and costume making, the feel-good romance unfolds—just as you would expect from a Hallmark story.

“Can I keep you?” 😂 This movie is so goofy and ridiculous, but fun. It‘s one of my roommate‘s favorite from her childhood, so I had to watch it.

RachelO Aww! When I was little (way before this film!), I used to have 3D View-Master reels of Casper. Loved him! (And I have a horrible feeling you won‘t have a clue what I‘m talking about - I suspect View-Masters were a very 1970s toy 😎) 1d

The Possessions | Sara Flannery Murphy
post image
Pickpick

Edie works for the Elysian Society as a “body” to channel deceased loved ones for her clients. An intriguing client, a disturbing murder, and Edie‘s own past add to the mystery of her story, and though the pacing felt off at times, I couldn‘t help staying interested until the very end.

The Telling | Alexandra Sirowy

Pickpick

Earlier in the summer, Lana lost her beloved step-brother in a tragic accident. Now, days before the start of school, she and her friends find a body—and come under suspicion as the danger continues to lurk in their small community. It‘s an entertaining YA mystery-thriller with some twisted turns.

Black Ice | Becca Fitzpatrick

Panpan

Ready for a week of backpacking, an unexpected snowstorm changes Britt‘s plans, and she seeks shelter in a cabin—and become a hostage. As she uses her survival skills to stay alive, the story has the makings of a fun (though predictable) YA thriller. Yet, over and over, she thinks about her ex-boyfriend—how he acted like a jerk, but is really a good guy—and hopes for him to rescue her. I rolled my eyes a lot.

“Nine students. Three bloodsports. One deadly weekend.”

This YA mystery-thriller isn‘t anything mind-blowing, but considering I am not usually a fan of spoiled-rich-kids-behaving-badly stories, I enjoyed it more than I expected.

“A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control.” Thunderhead continues the story of these #grim reapers, and I need to read it ASAP. I loved Scythe, and The Toll releases soon.

In this fantasy series, Selene Ravenwood has the gift of dreamwalking and masquerades as a #raven. Naturally, in discovering more and more about her gift, her story fills with adventure, romance, and all sorts of drama (plus cliffhanger endings), and now, I‘m impatiently waiting for Book Three. ⁣
