I am just sitting here listening to Bride of Chucky and thinking about all the glorious books I read this month. I cannot remember the last time I read this many spooky and scary stories and, lemme tell you, after my reading slumps, it was amazing.
MY READING THIS MONTH
Seventeen Books!? I could not feel happier about this glorious stack. Honestly, the breaking point for my reading in 2021 was probably August or July when I read a single book. This theme really worked for me this year.
I didn’t get to post a review of all of these wonderful books but each of them, with one exception, was perfect. If you are looking for something to read tonight, take your pick because I loved them all. Well, I did mention that one exception. The Taking of Jake Livingston is indeed very spooky but it featured not one but two story lines that are no-nos for me. I was so excited about a spooky POC + 🏳️🌈 but there was also a school shooting and sexual assault and I just don’t have it in me. You might love Jake, it just wasn’t right for me.
I can’t even bring myself to pick my top three, there were just so many to love this month. But, if pressed, I would say Poe for Your Problems, Bridge of Souls, The Ghost of Gosswater, and Death Troopers will stay with me longer than others. Well, maybe also The Haunting of Aveline Jones. And, Scritch Scratch. I just can’t pick!
Tell me, please! How was your reading this month?
