It‘s been a few years since I read this, and it‘s the first time I‘ve done it as an audiobook. I think I enjoy physically reading it better, but I don‘t have time to do that with my unending TBR pile.

This one scratched so many itches for me and felt like the perfect mix of magic and reality. I know the style didn‘t work for everyone, but I think it definitely falls into the same camp as Black Chalk, or Secret History, or Special Topics in Calamity Physics... which you either dig or you don‘t.

Well. This didn‘t really work out for me. I didn‘t find it scary but I think that was mostly because I really hated the narrative voice. It was extremely repetitive and smarmy. I don‘t know. It just wasn‘t for me.

Still finishing up some spooky books that I took out for October. It‘s quick reading so far, even if I‘m not really a fan of the protagonists tone.

There is a lot to like in this one. I don‘t really know how to describe it, but it plays with timelines and revolves around the current political climate.

October Roundup part two: Mostly horror in this pile, with the tagged being such a surprise that I‘ve named it the best out of this bunch. Rules for Vanishing was such a quick fun one too. Read a lot this month so I‘m closer to my goodreads goal. #scarathlon #teamStoker 1 point

October Roundup part one: I tried to read more horror this month (and have a bunch to read next month too.) Overall, I really liked most of what I read. Tagged my favourite from this group. Was most disappointed in the Tremblay story collection as he‘s usually a hit for me. #scarathlon #teamStoker 1 point.

Definitely one of the better horror anthologies I‘ve read in awhile, especially if you like cosmic horror. #scarathlon #teamStoker 11 points. There is one Halloween short story in this so I don‘t know if it counts or not for the extra points.

It‘s so interesting going back to some of the early Will Trent books to see how all the characters meet. Really enjoyed the early angry partnership between him and Faith. #scarathlon #teamStoker 6 points.

It‘s beautifully written, a book about getting old and the ghosts of the people and times that are gone. But it didn‘t feel substantial enough to me. It‘s so heavily dreamy that it feels it could float away. #scarathlon #teamStoker 6 points.

I kept going back and forth with whether I would read this one or not. My TBR pile is bonkers and I have some other books out that have bigger hold lists... but at the same time I‘ve been looking for a good horror all month and some of the best I‘ve read in the last few years have been YA. #scarathlon #teamStoker 1 point

I wanted to love this. I think the first half is actually brilliant. What makes Chbosky such a good story teller is how great he is at building characters, but the reveal for me was... kinda disappointing. More specifics in a nested spoiler comment. #scarathlon #teamStoker 11 points

Godpants The way they revealed the whole imaginary world was just, so cheesy to me. His friends pretty much become completely disposable. I found most of the last 100 pages pretty eye-roll inducing. BUT, I think the end with Mary Elizabeth was VERY good and almost restores things for me. 4w

Honestly, this didn‘t work for me. The only story I liked is the one about dog walking, and that one‘s even a little on the precious/pretentious side. I only paid a little attention to the inspiration for each story wrap up at the end because I was happy I was done with it! That‘s the problem with short story collections! I stick with them all the way! #scarathlon #teamStoker 11 points.

This started out so strongly for me, but overall I don‘t think it worked. I don‘t know who this book is for: moms? Maybe, but it seems too painful for moms, and like not enough substance for anyone else. #scarathlon #teamStoker 2 points.

This book is little but it packs a punch. Love and depression and drugs and pain and a ghost town. Yes, a ghost town. I love these mildly hallucinating narratives. #scarathlon #teamStoker 3 points.
