Frighteningly Good Read #18

Happy Halloween!!! October is coming to a close with the celebration that is near and dear to my heart - eating all the good candy out of the mix bags before the Trick or Treaters arrive. But, before I send my body into sugar shock I wanted to do one last FGR post. When I was... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Read #17

It is October 29th and the gimme-some-candy moment of Trick or Treat is almost upon us. I have been reading so very many books. Sadly, there have been none which I feel confident recommending at this time. Fortunately, I stumbled across this delightful book which we might all need either for a last minute labor...

I have two books by Shirley Jackson peering at me from my bookshelf right now. The first, The Haunting of Hill House is an often sited scary book. The other, We Have Always Lived in the Castle I found while browsing and, admittedly, picked it up because the cover is bright orange. Happily, it is also a... Continue Reading →

I know, I know. I'm falling further and further behind! But, you know whose fault it is? (Mine, really, because I apparently lack literary self control.) But some blame needs to be laid at Maggie Stiefvater's door for writing an engaging and epic series. It all started on October 15th when I started reading The Raven Boys.... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Read #14

I know, I know. I'm running behind. There have been some big changes to my life outside this blog that have created a little hiccup in my schedule. But, I have all day today to get caught up! So, lets start with the FGR for Saturday, October 14th. I have been reading some terrifying books... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Read #11

Today's FGR is the fabulous and award-winning Graphic Novel Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol. After reading the super creepy Into the Woods I had to give myself a couple of days before going back into the Graphic Novel genre. Somehow, the illustrations with these stories have a way of creeping me out. Anya's Ghost is more than a... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Reads #10

For today, my Frighteningly Good Read recommendation is The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. Beginning with A Discovery of Witches, adventuring through Shadow of Night and culminating in Book of Life, the adventures of Diana the Witch and her Vampire soul mate Matthew were thrilling and fascinating. And, since it is soon to be a BBC television series (*squeal!*)... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Reads #9

On the first Friday of every month my local library has a $4.00 Bag of Books sale. Sometimes there is little to nothing of interest for sale. But, this time I hit the jackpot! I found a couple of books to add to some of my series collections, some non-fiction gems and two fantastically ridiculous looking... Continue Reading →

Frighteningly Good Read #8

Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are both prolific and talented writers. Whether they work together or separately, I always love their books. My hands down favorite character that they have created is Special Agent A.X.L. (Aloysius) Pendergast. Pendergast is the coolest person I have never met (who doesn't exist) and if he is in the...

Frighteningly Good Reads #7

Recently I was coerced into watching the Amazon original show, The Worst Witch. Truthfully, this is not the best filmmaking I have ever seen. The "magical" moments were definitely not million dollar blue screen shots. However, the story telling was absolutely on point. It follows a girl struggling to better herself even though she is considered... Continue Reading →
