"If there's one thing I know about humans it's this---they don't make sense. And the minute you start expecting them to, you end up at the bottom of a canal."
An entertaining, quick read.
While I did not enjoy this as much as Nos4a2 I did really enjoy learning more about Manx. It was interesting to see his back story and how Christmasland came to be. Now, while this does give us Manx's past and the beginnings of Christmasland I do recommend reading Nos4a2 first otherwise some of the story will be ruined for you.
I am sad that this series is over now. I enjoyed every minute I spent with these girls. It was quite the ride and that ending was so bittersweet. With Paper Girls over and Saga on a break what do I read now Mr. Vaughan?!
For me the audiobook was definitely the way to go. The author read it. Sure I kept picturing Marshall reading to me but I was completely ok with that.
"There are people in our lives who fill up our whole attention, but they're still only temporary. And there are others who settle into our hearts and minds comfortably and never leave."
Creepy, mysterious, and at times disturbing. Everything & more I could even begin to expect from Stephen King's son.
Happy Halloween everyone!! It is my favorite holiday so of course I can't not share my team's costume at work. Go team PreK!
Halloween (aka my favorite time of year) is almost here. Of course this means out come the Halloween socks and spooky books. I thought this would be the perfect time to finally pick this up although maybe I should've waited until Christmas 😜.
Will I finish before Halloween...we shall see?!

The picture above is the back of the book and tells you exactly which Poe tale each author tackled.
The Raven (remix) by Amanda Lovelace
"Not all psychopaths are serial killers, but all serial killers are psychopaths."
Ok now I never want to go anywhere by myself again!! This book could definitely give you nightmares. It was so disturbing yet I couldn't stop reading!
October is the perfect month to read a little true crime 😎
I have always been a big Poe fan so I was beyond excited when this collection was first announced. Here is hoping that it doesn't disappoint.
Words of warning: don't read this while you are attempting to eat, especially if you have a week stomach.
I can see why this story may not be for everybody but for me it classic King. It is creepy, suspenseful, and extremely detailed. It gives you the heebie jeebies, but in a good way.
Since all of my library holds have seemed to come in at once I don't think I will actually get to the original Stephen King book I picked for my TBR this month (the Shining). You can't have October without a spooky read though so I decided it was time to check out this novella, plus then I can finally watch the movie.
I really enjoyed the author's take on Loki. It made me love him even more. When all anyone sees him as is a liar and a trickster why should he even try to be something else?
This book was not kind to Thor though (but seeing as Loki is the narrator was that ever really an option).
I look forward to this authors other books about the Marvel anti-heroes/villains that we have all come to love.
My library had a book sale this weekend and I was super happy with my finds. My Stephen King Collection continues to grow. It is my goal to one day own all of his works and I with these (as well as all the ones I already had) I would guess I am about halfway there.
It seems like I have been reading this forever but when you are listening to it on audio and only when you are at work...it actually was forever.
