Reading Wrap-Up September, 2018

I can’t believe I actually only read five books this month! I was hoping to have read more. What is even more disappointing is that they were all just ‘okay’ books. They weren’t great, but they also weren’t bad. On Goodreads, I rated them all either three or four stars. Though, I will say at least I didn’t hate any of them!

 

3 stars

3 Stars

  • The Lost Continent of Mu by James Churchward
  • The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson
  • My Girls: A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie by Todd Fisher

4 stars

4 Stars

  • The Verona Exchange (#2 Rainee Allen Mystery) by Lauren B. Grossman and Bernard Jaroslow
  • Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

 

Also, Halloween Announcement!

As we’re moving into October, the one main thing I am excited about is Halloween! I’m not the type of person who cares about dressing up, going to parties, or even eating candy. Instead, I like to get in the mood. Burn a haunting candle, watch some scary movies, find some creepy pins on Pinterest, and especially read some horror books. For me, it’s more of the vibe and mood instead of actually caring about Halloween. Plus, I love pumpkins.

My point is, I’ll be completing my 30 Day Book Challenge (here’s the first day) tomorrow and then October begins on Monday. This year, I feel like doing a fun event.

So all my posts are going to revolve around Halloween (if you don’t like Halloween…sorry). I’m going to try to only read creepy books this month, do a bunch of fun Halloween reading tags, and maybe even review a few creepy movies…I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, but it’s going to be so much fun! I actually didn’t know this was a thing, but apparently there is something called “Blogtober,” which is exactly what I’m doing (making your blog Halloween-themed for October).

  1. Your idea is meaningful and interesting! Go for it!
    By the way, I read a novel entitled A Pale View of Hill this month. It’s depressive and stifling for me, but the way the writer recounts, as far as I am concerned, is very unique and novel. It feels like an impression painting, fuzzy, blurry, leaving a lot of space for readers to think. If you haven’t read it, give it a shot!

    1. Is the author Kazuo Ishiguro? If so, I’ve heard of that book, I just haven’t had time to read it. He also wrote The Remains of the Day, which I really want to read too, since I saw the movie adaptation. Thank you for the recommendation!
