Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

So, this month was a bit...hectic. I had midterms and a lot of things going on in my personal life, so I wasn't focused on reading at all. I still read 12 books, but not my usual short stories and exclusively read on audiobooks. Since it was October, I wanted to read some horror books, … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up: October, 2019

Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

I was introduced to this book when the movie came out 2018, starring Sandra Bullock. I heard the movie was really good and after watching an analysis of the film, I decided to pick up this book to read it myself. Because let's face it, I rarely watch movies and read lots of books. However, … Continue reading Book Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

This is the third (or possibly more) book by Stephen King I have attempted to read, following The Shining and It. I was able to finish neither of them, DNFing both of them (The Shining was too frusterating, and It was too slow-moving). My point is, I don't have the best track record with Stephen … Continue reading Book Review: Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Reading Wrap-up October, 2018

I can't believe Spooktober has ended, and NaNoWriMo is in full swing. I usually do this wrap-up at the end of the month, but I was just too busy with other posts. So you're getting it a few days late, but as I always say, better late than never. This last month I read five … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up October, 2018

Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

We are nearing Halloween and for the final book I read this month, I thought it would be nice to finish with a classic horror. It doesn’t hurt that the title of the novel is a quote from Shakespeare (it’s from Act IV of Macbeth), who is possibly my favorite author of all time. Anyway, … Continue reading Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

30 Spooky Halloween Tag Questions

Halloween is just a little over a week away and it is freezing right now in Minnesota (44 °F, 7 °C as I write this) and most of the leaves have fallen. Fall is almost over and I have a horrible feeling that winter will follow closely on its heels. But I thought I would do one … Continue reading 30 Spooky Halloween Tag Questions

Book Review: The Witches’ Tree by M.C. Beaton

If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you’ll probably know what a massive fan I am of cozy mysteries. Even if they are repetitive and similar, I love them all. Until I read this one… A little background on this series. This is Book #28 of the Agatha Raisin mystery series, and one I’ve … Continue reading Book Review: The Witches’ Tree by M.C. Beaton

Halloween Creatures Book Tag

I saw this tag come out a few days ago and, since it's Spooktober and I was looking for some fun book tags, I thought this one would be perfect. The original creator is Anthony from KeepReadingForward. As always, I was not tagged and I will not be tagging anyone. Okay, let's go! Witch A … Continue reading Halloween Creatures Book Tag

My Favorite Halloween Songs

No October would be complete without listening to some Spooktober-themed music. So I compiled a short list of the songs that I often set on repeat during this month! These probably aren't the typical songs you see on Halloween song lists...but let's go anyway. Don't Fear The Reaper (The Spiritual Machines) This song is from … Continue reading My Favorite Halloween Songs
