1. True Crime or Horror
2. I don't necessarily find books scary, more like creepy or disturbing. The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum is one of the most disturbing books I've ever read, and I read that not too long ago.
I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but I had heard good things about Victor LaValle. Well, this book was a wild ride. Urban fantasy, horror, fairy tale. There are definitely still some unanswered questions, but I enjoyed it over all.
Yule / Winter Solstice Swap!!! For those who are witchy or looking for a Christmas alternative. Hurry, sign ups close Nov. 6th. See @sprainedbrain & @Chrissyreadit

I love Halloween.... But I LOOOOVE Christmas! 🎅🏼🎄
??️? Sharon my #BasicWitchSwap gifts are perfection! I love all the books you picked out! I was JUST thinking that I needed more info on the Wheel of the Year. ? The crystals & reading cards are beautiful. That Book of Spells bath bomb is amazing. I like that the "Drink Up Witches" wine glass is unbreakable, it's like you know me or something. ? As always your wax seals are stunning. This whole package is wonderful! Thank you so much! ???
Lynn, I love all my #AllHallowsReadSwap presents! Those socks are adorable. I have yet to read The Chestnut Man, so that was a perfect pick. So much candy & stickers! Thank you very much. 🖤 @wanderinglynn
Thank you for hosting #AHRS @MaleficentBookDragon 💀 Happy Halloween!!
Vanessa, thank you SO MUCH for my #HauntedHollowSwap gifts! I love it all. 🖤 The book selection was perfect. And that bleeding skull candle is F#&KING SIIIIICK!!! I can't even. What a perfect way to start the day. @FantasyChick
** side note it snowed here last night, so it's basically spooky Christmas.
Thank you for hosting @wanderinglynn , you're the best! 🎃 #HHS #HHS21
I do love a good celebrity memoir, and this one did not disappoint. I kind of wish I had gone with the audio version, so I could hear all the crazy stories right from the horse's mouth. Then again the book had pictures, so I'll just have to experience both formats I guess.
Coincidentally, I can upon this smashing rendering while visiting the Pumpkins After Dark art exhibit. 🎃
Ok Friends! Here are my options for #lmpbc #Round13 #GroupX I usually tend to lean towards non-fiction with my picks. Have any of you read any of these? Anything pique your interest? @ShelleyBooksie @BeeMagical @BookishTrish
#blameitonlitsy I'm not usually into stories about ghosts/hauntings, but all the positive posts on Litsy had me intrigued. I quite enjoyed it, very atmospheric. Also, the haunting entity is something that creeps me out irl, so I was totally buying into it. I will definitely be reading more from this author. #Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft
I have to admit I've never actually read anything by HP Lovecraft, but that didn't stop me from loving this book. It was so engrossing, a series of stories (I assume all inspired by different Lovecraftian tales) that all come together in the end, with racism as the central theme. I really want to watch the show now, and of course read some HPL. #Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft
I haven't seen any Littens post about the first trailer for HBO's House of the Dragon yet. Are we all just too traumatized from S8 of GoT? (I know I am. Lol.) I'm intrigued but not as excited as I want to be.

? Frankenstein ? Frankenweenie
Loved the book. Tim Burton's clamation movie was good too. Dark for a kids film.
? The Hellbound Heart ? Hellraiser
The book was better I'd say. The movie was painful to watch, but I did like the Cenobites!
? Audition ? Audition
The movie was pretty true to the book, but both were too slow for me. The "good" part was a bit better in the movie version.
I already pretty much knew what was going to happen in this book, so my expectations were high. Unfortunately they were not met. It took too long to get to the "good" stuff, and even then it was all a bit disappointing. #Screamathon ? @4thhouseontheleft
