#OminousOctober #Campfire
Not a picture of a book, but my family and I went camping back in July. I brought a book with me (the tagged book). There was a fire ban on everything at the park. We were there for one night and were evacuated the next day because of a wildfire 😱 it burned close to 7,000 acres and took about 2 weeks to contain. Our first family vacation and camping trip. We definitely won't forget it! @StayCurious @Eggs

#TeamMonsterMash #Scarathlon
Here is my watch list for October. I don't do horror or scary movies. I'm too chicken for that! 😅 So, this is what I've picked. I've never seen The Lost Boys, but I've always heard about it. I don't think its scary, right? Lol.
@StayCurious

WJCintron Lost boys is soooooo good! 1w
Pigpen_Reads @WJCintron I've never seen it, I hope it's not scary! 😅 1w

#TeamMonsterMash #Scarathlon
Back in 2020, I was asked to read and review Willow. I do not like zombies, they scare me. But this storyline had me hooked! Last week I went to Half Price Books and look what I found?! The whole series! This is definitely going on my TBR for #Scarathlon 😁
@StayCurious

StayCurious Ooh these look good! 1w

I made it through a few chapters and just wasn't feeling this one. I also didn't realize this is book 4 in a series, but I think they can be read as standalone. Idk, it seemed to drag for me.

KristiAhlers That was one of my least favorite books by her. I bailed as well. 3w

A bit late, but here's my pick! Zoo by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. I'll admit, this one was a bit scary 😅 It didn't help that the day after I finished the book, I went to the zoo with my kids 🤣 Sometimes I forget to separate the book world from reality 😅

Poison Princess, I just read this one and loved it. It's YA, which I haven't read in a long while, and dystopian/apocalyptic.

Queen of Shadows, book 4 in the Throne of Glass series. A great series, if you ask me 😊

Rebel by Helen Hardt. This was one of those books I could not put down. But at the same time, I was trying not to read it too fast. It was so good!
