I’ve been slacking on my reading because: Vine. Have we talked about how I only recently discovered Vine & I’m obsessed. My head is packed with Vine content & I’m not ashamed, well, maybe a tad. Shout out to all of the people out there doing god’s work & supplying me with endless hours of Vine compilations. Seeing Ted Cruz being heckled with Zodiac Killer accusations will never get old. I’m sure that he is real over it at this point but it makes me cackle like a maniac. But seriously, I need to at least read a couple of books this month 🙂
Autumn Killing: Mons Kallentoft – I have read part of this book before, the plot is good but for some reason I just can’t seem to finish it – this is the year. This is the third book in the Malin Fors book series, I believe it is considered a Nordic Noir. When a body is found floating in the moat of a very posh estate, a family’s dark deeds spanning lifetimes are uncovered. The atmosphere is very ooky-spooky & I like Malin Fors as the tortured, burnt out DC who is also brilliant at solving complicated cases. My goal is to finally finish this one, I know that once I get into it I will fly through it.
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow – I’ve heard that this series is almost as good as Harry Potter. Aside from that, it sounds fascinating – Morrigan Crow is destined to die on her eleventh birthday but somehow escapes her fate with the help of Jupiter North. I think it’s a YA novel but I’m always game for a fun read now & again.
The Witches: Roald Dahl – Have I read this book at least a million times? Yes. Am I going to read it again so that I am primed for the release of the new adaption. Absolutely. I’m so excited for this film, it looks like such a fun, modern version of this already beloved classic.
Empire of the Wild: Cherie Dimaline – Another YA novel but listen, apparently this is the only genre cranking out spooky books! I’m most interested in this because it centers around a Canadian Metis legend of a werewolf’esque being called the Rogarou.
October is quickly slipping away but I think this a good, fun list of books to get through this month. I also want to get a copy of Katya & Trixie’s book but I don’t know if that is a book that one truly reads 😀 Do you have any spooky book recommendations? No Dan Koontz, he’s a lot for me even being a horror fanatic 😛
