Today‘s scary movie double feature. Can‘t really recommend either if these, but it was a cool first to see a horror flick with a social message. #scarathon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid

TheReadingMermaid Okay honey I'm giving you seven points for this. Three points for each movie and one for the post. 🧟‍♀️ 2d

I expected this to be nothing more than a fun pick me up but it actually really spoke to me. I found the characters surprising and thought they had a lot to say. I wasn‘t into the romance in this story, but the friendships and familial relationships that developed were so deep and colorful that it almost didn‘t matter.

In no way connected to #teamstoker but worth a couple points anyway @TheReadingMermaid

Week 2 was an improvement from last week, though I still don‘t feel like I got to where I wanted to be.

Meditation 3/7
Mindful eating 5/7
Reading 6/7
Light movement 1/2

On to next week with resolutions to keep improving!

I‘m not a big makeup person, which is probably why I‘ve never been braver enough to wear true #black lipstick, even on Halloween. I always end up cheating and going for something with just a hint of red in there. But the black lipstick is something from middle school me‘s bucket list that I still want to try once. #chillingphotochallenge #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

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
