Moved on to the sequel for more research for my old lady character. This one is different though because Maud is reminiscing on past crimes that were committed long before those in the first collection. She‘s such an interesting character and she makes you cheer her on as she racks up a body count ☠️

I start my spooky season in September and I knew I wanted to kick off with Riley Sager. This was everything I wanted it to be and managed to thrill and surprise me left and right. Now I need suggestions for what spooky book to read next so please send me some recs!

WOW 🤩 This was absolutely amazing. Very intense with a satisfying ending. I was riveted throughout and could not get enough. I am so glad I did the audio version because Joanne Froggatt is AMAZING! I often forgot it was her I was so sucked into the story.

My 3YO got the one on top at a book fair and I thought the dinosaur looked familiar. Sure enough, the first book is at the library. When I brought it home he immediately grabbed it and ran to compare it to the other book. He knew it was Penelope Rex! Both of these are wonderful and adorable. 👍 🥰🤩

I‘m completely obsessed with Silk. I‘m so glad to find female superheroes that have their own identities and aren‘t just “the female version” of a male counterpart. She‘s the one I relate to the most so far ❤️ 🕷

I was nervous about getting into audiobooks but I have an hour commute and figured I could reach my reading goals faster if I start. I started with this one because it was short and was recommended by a friend. I‘m picky about readers on audiobooks and this one has two great readers for the two points of view. It‘s a harrowing, beautiful, true story. It heralds the virtue of perseverance and makes you appreciate what you have for sure!

The third in the Golden Arrow series. They‘re all super fun if you‘re in the mood for something exciting and heavily geared towards nerds which I enjoyed 🤓 I love the characters so much. Again, just fun and nerdy. 💜

I heard about this book from a meme where the author tweeted a bad review and clapped back that he was sorry his book about vampires on a submarine wasn‘t “realistic enough” for him. I knew immediately I had to read this book. It‘s so crazy it works. A submarine WOULD be the perfect place for a vampire. But how on earth (or at sea) could the humans stand a chance against them? Read and find out. It was a satisfying ride!

I wanted to read this book as a child but never got the chance. Reading it now as an adult I know I would have loved this book back then. It‘s an interesting survival narrative of a girl alone on an island that reminds me a bit of Hatchet, another childhood favorite of mine. It comforts me to know there are books like this with strong female protagonists for young girls to read.

Made 300 books read on Goodreads with this gem! It is exactly what it claims to be: a description of the way each famous writer sits down and gets it done. I read it during breaks at work and each chapter is the perfect length for that. It gives great insight as to what did and did not work for these authors. As a result, it can also serve as a look at what may or may not work for aspiring authors. I loved this book!

The Shining | Stephen King
Pickpick

I‘ve wanted to read this ever since I saw the movie. The movie is a cinematic masterpiece but it hinted that there was way more story to be found under there which I assumed could be found in the book. I was right! This story is gripping and spooky. The characters and the story are 100 times more fleshed out in the novel. I tried not to read it at night because it is very creepy and has different scares than the movie. 10/10 Great horror novel.

Just finished completely tearing through this book! It felt just like playing a video game. Super addictive and satisfying at the same time. I don‘t know if it would hold up well on a re-read but it sure was a fun ride on the first read.

Nan2 I wondered the same thing! I loved the ride, but wondered if I‘ll want to read it again now that I know what happens. Love the concept though. Would be great to have another story from that realm 4y

Got this for Christmas after seeing the movie at Thanksgiving. Having time to let the movie sink in was good for the reading experience for sure. The movie hit me so fast with all this new information! The screenplay helped me sort out and organize it all much better in my head. J. K. does not disappoint and the expanding wizarding world is turning out wonderfully!
