"Riley's always felt alone in middle school. She's not alone anymore."
Listen. Here's the thing After reading so many horror books in October, I need something light. Something fluffy. Something cozy.
Well, we made it. It's Halloween. Which means today is the last day of my 31 in 31. Did I succeed? Absolutely not. Did I try? I did. I really did but life is hard and lessons were learned.
As I'm writing this, I just finished the twelfth book in my 31 in 31 book reading challenge. I have read some great classics - Dracula, Frankenstein, The Lottery, The Doll, Carrie. I read some middle grade horror which totally surprised me - CIrque Du Freak. But so far, one book stands out among the rest.
Here it is. The final list of my to be read in October. I have to admit to a little trepidation. But even if I only make it through the first list, that's still ten books. That puts me ten books closer to my reading goal of one hundred books for the year. And just to give you fair forewarning, yes. There are three Disney villain books on here. I don't want to hear anything about how they're not scary. If a stepmother sending her stepkid into the woods to be killed isn't scary to you, you're on a whole different level than me. Plus, I may have Disney on the brain with an upcoming trip being planned. And BooBash looks like so much fun. Anyway. I also have a few re-reads. Because I loved them so much I have to revisit with them. Even if they scared the hell out of me the first time I read them. So, without further ado, here's the last eleven books on my thirty one in thirty one challenge. I've included my book bingo card again, in case you missed it on the last two blogs.
It is no secret that I love Grady Hendrix. His books are the perfect blend of horror, terror, and humor with a healthy dose of Gen X nostalgia. And The Final Girl Support Group is no different.
I love when a new batch of books comes out. I found a few. Most of these are later in the series. Which is ok in the cozy world. It's totally OK to pick up a series in the middle. Who knows? You may find a new favorite. I've included some reviews on the books... Continue Reading →

These have become less about a reading slump and more of they keep showing up in my Pinterest. So, here we go. How many books are too many books in a series? However many won't fit on my shelf. 2. How do you feel about cliffhangers? At the end of the chapter, yay! At the... Continue Reading →
I've been in a bit of a reading slump lately so I decided to scroll through Pinterest for some inspiration. And found Book Tags. So naturally the first one I decided to go with is Disney themed. Because I am a child. And I'm secretly jealous of Belle and that library. This tag was created... Continue Reading →
