2. 100% mood
3. Black coffee, all the time.
4. Both! 😆 But I guess early riser is more accurate.

I have one left on #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt & of course it's one that is hardest of all. It's very rare that something actually scares me when I read it. So can it just be classified as a scary book? Or can someone recommend a not too long book that is actually scary? Or is this like objective fear & I could read something about snakes & count that one? Because if so I already read it (tagged) & I hated those scenes. 😱🤮 @Clwojick

vivastory Have you heard Jeremy Messersmith? He has an album that's very appropriate for this season called Reluctant Graveyard. Kind of like a morbid Belle and Sebastian. 2d
madamereadsalot1 @vivastory I don't think I have. I just downloaded the album to remedy that! 2d

First experience with Reichs Bones character. I loved the show, but never read the books it was inspired by. Happy to have remedied that. Fixing to start book one of the series here in a bit. 10 #scarathlon point for being #teamslaughter themed. Plus 1 for participation and 1 for the scavenger hunt item "bone in title".

#chillingphotochallenge #scarathlon day 19 No book has ever made me gag before. But that one particularly #gory scene... 🤮 This book became an instant favorite in that moment.

I mean, Clive Barker says it was utterly terrifying, so you know it's gonna be crazy! @Clwojick

And last pick for the favorite thing about fall game! The desserts. I mean, you can eat pie at any time. But really it's not as good when it isn't the fall/winter/holiday season!
#scarathlon #teamslauter @Clwojick

Scochrane26 There‘s def certain times of the yr for some pies. I crave pecan in nov, derby pie in May (ky derby time), & strawberry pie in summer. 3d
madamereadsalot1 @Scochrane26 oh man! Derby pie is amazing! I make my own version and call it dirty pie since it isn't traditional. Peach pie is my summer go to! 3d
Scochrane26 @madamereadsalot1 In Ky, there are lots of versions of derby pie. I‘m not sure who‘s allowed to make the official derby pie, but I‘ve eaten many different versions w/ different names. They‘re all yummy. (edited) 3d
madamereadsalot1 @Scochrane26 I can imagine! I'd love to try all the variants! I don't include Bourbon, that's the only difference really in mine. 3d

Today, my company is hosting its fourth annual event working with the local animal shelter to raise funds and get some furry babies a new home. Before the madness hits, I'm going to try to finish the last few chapters left in this one. Was planning to start it last month, and then as usual for me, I never did. Ha! But I'm glad I saved it because it'll rack up points for #teamslaughter !

A documentary about a Catholic priest who regularly does exorcisms made by the director of The Exorcist. Has interviews with Blatty and a supposed actual exorcism.
Does this count as #scarathlon points for #teamslaughter @Clwojick ?

Stacypatrice That sounds good! 5d
madamereadsalot1 @Stacypatrice it's interesting. I will admit, I have no certain or defined position on this topic, though I am a bit of a skeptic. In everything in life really. But I will say when they started doing the exorcism, her yelling actually caused me to break out in goose flesh and weird shocking chills. Just an automatic response to the sound. So freaking weird. 5d

This is the first BDB series book I've really enjoyed in a while. They've all just kind of been ho-hum recently, or even down right annoying. But this one was good. Which is weird because it was WAY to neatly packaged to make for an exceptional vampirey murder mystery, but it was so enjoyable.
