I have always been a big Poe fan so I was beyond excited when this collection was first announced. Here is hoping that it doesn't disappoint.

In the Tall Grass | Joe Hill, Stephen King

Mehso-so

(3.5)

Words of warning: don't read this while you are attempting to eat, especially if you have a week stomach.

I can see why this story may not be for everybody but for me it classic King. It is creepy, suspenseful, and extremely detailed. It gives you the heebie jeebies, but in a good way.

JenlovesJT47 Have you watched the movie? I just read this last week. It definitely sticks with you! 😱 2d
jackilynn @JenlovesJT47 I have not watched the movie yet (wanted to read the short story first). I plan to do that soon though. 2d

In the Tall Grass | Joe Hill, Stephen King

Since all of my library holds have seemed to come in at once I don't think I will actually get to the original Stephen King book I picked for my TBR this month (the Shining). You can't have October without a spooky read though so I decided it was time to check out this novella, plus then I can finally watch the movie.

Slajaunie I saw this! I did not realize it was a book. Creepy!! 3d
jackilynn @Slajaunie It is a short story mabye 60 pages or so. I think it was originally published as a ebook but now may be available in a collection of short stories. I was going to read it all last night but decided I needed to get sleep at some point since I had be up early for work today. My goal is to finish it tonight. I am enjoying it so far though I can see why it may not be for everyone. 3d
Slajaunie I watched the movie. 3d
jackilynn I plan to do that soon. I am one of those people who like to read the book before watching the movie at least if I have the time and the option lol 3d

Started this on audio earlier. Not sure how I feel about it yet. The one thing it does have going for it right now is the narrator. The whole time I have been listening I keep picturing Aziraphale 😜

Due to the break this took some getting back in to. I was slightly confused at first but by the midway point things really picked up. I flew through that last half. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and that ending?!

I really enjoyed the author's take on Loki. It made me love him even more. When all anyone sees him as is a liar and a trickster why should he even try to be something else?

This book was not kind to Thor though (but seeing as Loki is the narrator was that ever really an option).

I look forward to this authors other books about the Marvel anti-heroes/villains that we have all come to love.

My library had a book sale this weekend and I was super happy with my finds. My Stephen King Collection continues to grow. It is my goal to one day own all of his works and I with these (as well as all the ones I already had) I would guess I am about halfway there.

Addison_Reads Great find! I have an extra Under the Dome. It's a softcover, used, in readable condition, but not perfect. If you don't have that one I'd be happy to #payitforward and send it to you. ☺ 2w
jackilynn @Addison_Reads if I didn't already have it I would definitely take you up on that. Thanks for the offer though. It is always nice when us in the book community share our extra/used books. 2w

Pumpkinheads: A story about friendship, love, and all things fall. Very cute.

I have less than a week to get this ARC read & review posted before official release date. I guess it's time to get cracking. Spooky season (aka my absolute favorite time of year) is upon us so of course I had to dig out my ghost bookmark. 👻

This was my project today. It isn't as organized as I would like but at least there are no more boxes of books under my bed. Plenty of room for more books so as the books from my TBR shelf move over hopefully more organization will follow.

It seems like I have been reading this forever but when you are listening to it on audio and only when you are at work...it actually was forever.

This always irked me because Peeves was one of my favorite book characters. I feel like they really missed out on a fun character. So many people don't even know he exists. 😫👻

The author posted this "conversation" between V & Butch from the latest book on her Facebook page. I forgot how much these books make me laugh, especially when I am least expecting it.

Not sure I was really a fan of this. I tried the audio and maybe that wasn't the best way to go. I did end up checking out a physical copy at one point & was pleasantly surprised by these wonderful illustrations.

It is getting to be that time of year again where it is perfectly acceptable to read as many spooky/scary stories as possible. I heard this will be the basis for season 2 of the Haunting of Hill House (renamed the Haunting of Bly Manor) so I figured now was the perfect time to give it a go.

My reading goals this year were originally to monthly read at least:

1 unread book recieved in a subscription box
1 unread book from my owned TBR
1 audiobook
1 new release
1 unread ebook

Well now I decided to add 1 work by Stephen King because I really need to finish my back log of books of his I have yet to read. Starting September off with this one.

Definitely a different kind of book. Not something I would've normally picked up for myself but it was the only o e of the Jimmy Fallon 2019 Summer Reads I hadn't yet read so I figured I would give it a go. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. Just left me feeling kind of, meh.

Someone doesn't understand personal space. He keeps sticking his butt in my face while I am trying to read. His tail was also wagging so there are times when I actually can't see. Definitely makes trying to finish my book hard.

Slajaunie Aren‘t cats fun? I have 2 cats and two dogs. I never have personal space. 2mo

Oh my sweet yet tortured Cresswell. I loved this glimpse at his side of things since we usually only see from Audrey Rose's perspective. This has me even more excited for Capturing the Devil.
