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 absolutely adored this. The witty dialogue, the colorful illustrations, the memorable characters, the magic & mayhem...I don't think there was one thing about this graphic novel I didn't like.

Paper Girls Vol. 6 | Brian K. Vaughan

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?!

Addison_Reads I haven't finished this series yet, but I've been really enjoying it. Have you read Vaughn's Y:The Last Man series? It's really good too. 5d
jackilynn @Addison_Reads I have not but I will most definitely be looking into it. 5d

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.

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?!

I will never tire of these books. Once again I stayed up way to late just so I could finish this book in one sitting. I think I had a smile on my face the whole time.

(3.5)

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.

JenlovesJT47 Have you watched the movie? I just read this last week. It definitely sticks with you! 😱 4w
jackilynn @JenlovesJT47 I have not watched the movie yet (wanted to read the short story first). I plan to do that soon though. 4w

In the Tall Grass | Joe Hill, Stephen King

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.

Slajaunie I saw this! I did not realize it was a book. Creepy!! 4w
jackilynn @Slajaunie It is a short story mabye 60 pages or so. I think it was originally published as a ebook but now may be available in a collection of short stories. I was going to read it all last night but decided I needed to get sleep at some point since I had be up early for work today. My goal is to finish it tonight. I am enjoying it so far though I can see why it may not be for everyone. 4w
Slajaunie I watched the movie. 4w
jackilynn I plan to do that soon. I am one of those people who like to read the book before watching the movie at least if I have the time and the option lol 4w

Started this on audio earlier. Not sure how I feel about it yet. The one thing it does have going for it right now is the narrator. The whole time I have been listening I keep picturing Aziraphale 😜

Due to the break this took some getting back in to. I was slightly confused at first but by the midway point things really picked up. I flew through that last half. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and that ending?!

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.

Addison_Reads Great find! I have an extra Under the Dome. It's a softcover, used, in readable condition, but not perfect. If you don't have that one I'd be happy to #payitforward and send it to you. ☺ 1mo
jackilynn @Addison_Reads if I didn't already have it I would definitely take you up on that. Thanks for the offer though. It is always nice when us in the book community share our extra/used books. 1mo

This was my project today. It isn't as organized as I would like but at least there are no more boxes of books under my bed. Plenty of room for more books so as the books from my TBR shelf move over hopefully more organization will follow.
