This is a smallish sample of my #OctTBR. I'd love to get to all of them, but I'll consider half a big success. I've also got kindles and audios I want to read as well.

It is super gory, dark and violent. There is one small part where animal cruelty was committed by one of the characters. It is like sci-fi horror. I think is YA. It is better if you go blind. If you liked those old movies like Alien where a strange creatures are inside of people you will like this one. Like most of horror movies, unreal but I liked it🤷🏽‍♀️I like the way characters were described. It was also sad.3.9/4⭐️As a YA horror story

This one was a different vampire story. For me all characters were so annoying but that Carter, please, a psychiatrist who was so manipulative and psychological abuser. Terrible. But you have to read the story. I think it was more character driven, maybe that was why I enjoyed it more. Absurd but interesting. 3.8⭐️

Gissy I forgot to say, that the story is gory and dark in some parts but that‘s what I like in this type of story

I don‘t know about this one. Sometimes I felt lost in the dialogues. I like the illustrations but don‘t love them. But they complied the purpose, they are dark and extremely gory illustrations 🩸. I will like to re-read it and maybe try volume 2 because there parts that I liked. I received this graphic novel last year by @BookwormAHN in #Elfswap Thsnk you🤗🧛🏼‍♀️🖤🖤🖤

Second book in the series. In this book we will know more about Alex‘ family history and her relation with fae world. I think it was ok a little bit repetitive, almost dragging the story. The story always has funny parts. It was gory in others. 3⭐️

I enjoyed this book and all the paranormal adventure. Manu‘s eyes are different but she doesn‘t know anything about her nature until something happened to her mother and she has to discover her family history almost by her own. Very excited to read the second one. This author came to PR a couple of years ago during her first book presentation. 3.8⭐️

I was surprised by this book. It about a haunted house and spirit possession. But I think is better not to know much to see the twists. It is a low to mild YA horror novel. I enjoyed it. Fast pace reading. 3.4⭐️

I am not the target audience for this middle grade book but it was cute. Rosie is a girl who is going to discover that she is as her mother a witch hunter and will have to face the Memory Thief Witch. How Rosie receives this news, from whom, why she has to face this witch and who is going to help her in this adventure are the stories you will read in the book. I will like to know if the target audience like the book. 3.5⭐️2nd book comes next April

This was like a fairytale story. A curse to a woman and all her descendants for “betraying” the love of a man. The story goes in two time lines. I liked the relationship between sister and brother but it is a slow pace read in some parts. 2.9/3⭐️But I own the other two books🤷🏽‍♀️

The Nature of Witches | Rachel Griffin

Witches display their magic depend on the season they born. Everwitches have the magic in the four seasons. But their power is so strong that can kill those connected to them if they cannot control the magic. This is the story of Clara who has decided that she doesn‘t want to be an ever witch. Is she going to be stripped (exhaust her magic) during next eclipse or not? It was ok with some YA cheesy romance but I enjoyed it. I‘m in fall mood 3.4⭐️
