Dracula | Bram Stoker

I did it. I finished Dracula, and let me just say it was amazing. I started it several times before and I don‘t know why it didn‘t stick, but I‘m obsessed with it now. I‘m so glad that I didn‘t give up on it. 🧛‍♂️🧛‍♂️🧛‍♂️

This spooky season I‘m throwing it all the way back to the vampire origin stories. I‘m wanting to read classic vampire stories that shaped the way we imagine vampires. And I‘m thoroughly enjoying my journey.

If you want to start this project with me then head over to Wildwood Reads for classic vampire stories print out to go in your reading journal. https://wildwoodreads.com/2022/10/05/classic-vampire-stories-printable/

Bookwomble I just read Carmilla in the anthology I'm reading at the moment. Great story 🧛🏻‍♀️ 2d

I‘m getting all of my treats ready for Hocus Pocus Two. So I figured it was a perfect time to break out The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook. I decided to make Scorpion Pie (pecan pie). It was delicious.

Carmilla: Large Print | Sheridan Le Fanu

I‘ve been on the hunt for the best vampire story. And since Carmilla inspired Dracula I figured that would be the place to start.

This is supposedly where it all began and I can totally see why. Carmilla was eerie and creepy. Definitely one to read in the daylight. If you‘re a vampire lover you need to check this one out.

I never thought anything would beat The Name of the Wind as my favorite book of the year, but here we are. Babel is stunning. And while I loved every bit of it it did take me a minute to get into it. But once I fell into the rhythm of the story I was hooked. The ending crushed my soul, and I haven‘t stopped thinking about it since.

I like to find some short reads that I can finish during a long weekend, so I shared a few of my favorites over on the blog. But today I‘ve been hooked on watching Riverdale, so I probably won‘t get a lot of reading done. I swear that show is addictive.

August was a hit or miss month. I really enjoyed some of the stuff I read, but I also read some stuff that I didn‘t like. I also dnfed more than I read. Some I put down to pick up at another time, but I just couldn‘t push through Old Country. So I‘m still on the hunt for some spooky season reads. Help me out and drop a few in the comments. I need some material for my September tbr.

The Blade Itself | Joe Abercrombie

So today on the blog I participated in The Nope Book Tag. One of the questions it asked was “name and antagonist that you would hate to run into.” And since I‘m reading The Blade Itself, Glokta was the first person that came to mind. Seriously, I wouldn‘t want to be in his bad side.

I‘ve heard his character evolves a little though so I‘m interested to see that. But what antagonist would you hate to run into?

I really enjoyed parts of The Lighthouse Witches. It‘s set on a remote Scottish Island that is full of folklore. It‘s so atmospheric and creepy. But there were a few glaring plot issues that were hard to ignore. And then a sci-fi plot line came out of left field and completely dissolved the folklore plot line that I loved.

I‘m going to be honest; I don‘t imagine that I will read very much this month. We‘re right in the middle of remodeling our house and it‘s probably going to take a month to get everything back in place when they‘re finished. The chances of having enough time to read is slim. Plus, all of my things from my living room are blocking my tbr shelf right now. So I‘m reading the two books that I have access to. 😂😂😂

What are you reading in August?

It took me about a month to finish The Wise Man‘s Fear, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Honestly, I wasn‘t ready for it to end, so that‘s probably why it took me so long. This series is so, so good. I can‘t believe I waited so long to give it a try.

Hide | Kiersten White

Panpan

I wish I had loved Hide as much as I loved the cover. I picked this up in my last book haul, and I was so excited to read it that I took a break from The Wise Man‘s Fear, which might have been a mistake.

My main issue was the character development. It tried to fit too many povs in. I‘m a character driven reader so that took a lot from me. But if you‘re a plot driven reader you might love this because it is action packed.

I didn‘t want to love The Name of the Wind. But this book is stunning. The writing was lyrical, but concise.

I‘ve been in a reading slump this year. Unfortunately they happen to the best of us so here are a few things that helped me break out of mine.

🌲Listen to Audiobooks
🌲DNF Until Something Sticks
🌲Re-read a Favorite
🌲Try a New Genre
🌲Visit a Bookstore or Library
🌲Give Yourself Time

Do you have any helpful tips?

Info on how these tips helped me beat a reading slump: https://wildwoodreads.com/2022/06/10/how-to-beat-a-reading-slump/

ravenlee I find graphic novels and middle grade reads can help in a slump. They‘re quick and a change of pace, and both factors can help feel like I‘m getting somewhere. 4mo
5feet.of.fury Genre hopping 4mo
tokorowilliamwallace I hop around widely between an ever-expanding roulette wheel treasure hunt of reading moods very frequently anyway. My mind and attention span crave novelty pretty much constantly (at least regarding information and input)---inundating glut or nothing. I can't usually stick with the same linear development for very long before I need something different, so I'm a very scattered reader because of how slow I read, since I can't finish quick enough. 4mo
KathyWheeler Really easy reads with characters I know and short chapters always help me. Robert Parker‘s Spenser novels were good for reading slumps. 4mo
bookaholic1 I've been in one too, been listening to audiobooks, I am reading THE WAY OF KINGS, which is a chunkier, hoping it will help 4mo

Pickpick

I think I‘m finally coming out of my reading slump, and I want fantasy. So, I decided to pick up Elantris, and I‘m so glad I did. I wasn‘t super excited about it because I‘m ready to start the Stormlight Archives, but I ended up really enjoying it. It‘s probably the best book I‘ve read all year.

DrexEdit The size of Mr. Sanderson's books is usually what stops me before I even start. I always enjoy his books though. 😊 6mo
claudiuo @DrexEdit Same here, every time I want to start another of his books I am so reluctant because of length and I am a slow reader, but when I finally do, I end up loving it. 6mo

Lucy_Anywhere I really liked this one as well! 6mo
wildwoodreads @claudiuo @DrexEdit Yes! They‘re super intimidating but they‘re always worth it once I talk myself into picking one up. 6mo

My tbr is overwhelming. We had a book drive at my church earlier in the month, and a majority of them went to that. But it‘s time to do another unhaul. I hate to unhaul these because they‘re still great books, but I‘ve just lost interest in them. I want to make room for books that I know I‘ll read.

So for now I‘m listing them in my PangoBooks shop (I‘m @wildwoodreads there too). Maybe someone else will love them.

My father passed away in November 2021. He had numerous health problems, but one of the more prominent ones was his end stage kidney failure. And even though my dad‘s fight is over and he‘s at rest I want to continue to help the people that helped us. And the people who are fighting this terrible disease. There are ways that the book community can help. Let‘s use our books for a cause.

melissanorr What a wonderful way to honor your father! I'm going to check with the local dialysis centers to see if they would like books as I have a wide variety of paperbacks that I could donate. 7mo
wildwoodreads @melissanorr Thank you! And that would be awesome! 7mo
DaveGreen7777 I‘m so sorry for your loss! 😢 I lost my father last year as well. 😔 May 2022 be a year of healing for both of us. ❤️‍🩹 7mo
wildwoodreads @DaveGreen7777 Oh! I‘m so sorry to hear that. Sending hugs your way. 💕💕💕 7mo

My March reading journal spread might possibly be my favorite spread that I‘ve ever made. I love the vintage book look and that‘s what I was going for in this one. Plus, it was super easy to do, and a ton of fun.

The Arch Emulator and the Seven Keys is a unique, fast-paced read. I‘ve never read anything quite like it. It took a while for the plot to come together, but it was done in an interesting way.

My March 2022 TBR is going to be short. I‘m going to be working on the books for my chapter challenge, so that won‘t leave me a lot of time for anything else. I‘m really hoping to get to Elantris this month. I don‘t know why I keep putting it off.

What are you reading in March?
