Decided to change it up a bit today and read this. It's fabulous!

And my little boy, Ace, is in a cuddling mood today after a rough night of thunderstorms. Very rare for him since he's usually in a playful terrible two mood. 😁

✨ My reading goal is to read 80 books. Last year I set it at 60 and ended with 92 so I figured I'd bump it up a bit.
✨ Motivated. I've been lacking motivation for some time now. It's time to dig in and really begin enjoying life instead of just living it.
✨ Tagged. Absolutely enjoying the final book of this series.

⭐⭐⭐ Sadly, I didn't enjoy this book the way I did the first of the series. I think it's because I audio-read it and the narrator was horrible imo. Maybe I'll pick it up again one day and read my ebook copy. Sigh 😔

First book finished for October and it's one not on my posted TBR lol. Used free space #23 for #BookSpinBingo #Screamathon #Spookoweenreadathon ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This one was riveting, but there are trigger warnings for rape and brutality. Quite different from some of the fantasy novels I've read recently and I enjoyed it! 😁 Can't wait for the sequel.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Told in alternate points of view between the sea witch and one of the sea king's daughters who is giving her all to save her sister. A delight to read and as the story unfolds I really feel the author's emotions coming through thanks to the cryptic dedication she wrote. 🥺❤️ #sistersforever

⭐⭐⭐ I listened to this because my 13 yo daughter asked me to. It's an ok YA book. Not extreme horror, but it does have its creepy moments. There were some twists that I didn't expect either so that helped the experience. Lol On to book 2 to decide if I'll continue reading the series. 🎧 #fortheloveofkids

This book was...strange, but I ❤️ strange books! 🤪 There's some weirdly intriguing things happening to Carrot, all while she's running the Wonder Museum, since Uncle Earl's having knee surgery. Although intriguing doesn't necessarily mean good. Things become tense and nightmarish quicky. Can Carrot survive long enough to make it through the ordeal...and in one piece?

Capturing the Devil | Kerri Maniscalco
post image

The end of the series has arrived (although I'm a bit late to the reading party!). I was satisfied with the way this wrapped up. It is Audrey Rose and Thomas' most deadly case yet. Women are coming up missing at an alarming rate, but as there are no bodies they are unable to get the police to believe them.

At the same time, Thomas' father's played his hand. Will they both come out alive? Will they remain together if they do?

This was a quirky little graphic novel. It was so bizarre that I LOVED it. A new spin on gentrification that tickled me. ? The "Bottom yards" was once a thriving working class neighborhood, but now with places renting cheaply it's gone downhill from the area it used to be. Something more sinister is lurking in the shadows. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was my #BookSpin #DoubleSpin yay! ?

So I've read some more goodies for #bookspinbingo 🤗 My favorite so far has been Escaping Houdini which I read as one of my free spots in row 2, but Lore was a close second.

I'm almost there to making my first ever bingo!!! I'm telling myself there is still time. LOL

Escaping From Houdini | Kerri Maniscalco
post image
Pickpick

This was excellent! It contained all the action and adventure with the mystery I could hope for.

This time Audrey Rose and Thomas are on a ship headed to New York. During their time abroad people keep coming up murdered. Many clues lead to some of the cruise ship show workers, but there are so many reasons why the lot of them would kill. I quite loved the journey I found myself on with this one. 🤗
