Good morning and Happy Halloween!

I am so excited for today, I love Halloween and I am finally going to watch the remake of It tonight, I just finished reading It yesterday and I am excited to see how it adapts into a movie. I don’t think it’s going to be something that really scares me but we will see.

I’m also very happy about the fact that I get to go pick up Kingdom of Ash today, I finally got paid and I get to get it, I have been waiting for this for so long (its only been a week but it feels longer!) I’m anxious to see how this series ends.\

Lets get into my reading week!

What did you recently finish reading?

I read so many books over the last week. I talked about most of these in my readathon wrap up so I’m not going to repeat myself here, just seems really redundant at this point.

Emma
by Jane Austen

Overall, I did not care for Emma, it was not my favorite Austen story. It was just slow and I couldn’t stand most of the characters.

Ungodly
by Kendare Blake

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding
by Alexandra Bracken

Sea Witch
by Sarah Henning

Darth Vader, Poison Ivy Cycle of Life and Death, Spider Gwen Most Wanted

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray
by Tarryn Fisher

I adored this, however, it put me in a very angsty mood, I was feeling super emo while reading this.

Little Monsters
by Kara Thomas

Okay, I really liked this, I would sit down and just devour 80 pages or so in a sitting. There were things that really frustrated me about it (like lack of communication and also the trope that comes up in thrillers all the time about the main character being in the spotlight and everyone suspecting them based off of circumstantial evidence at best) but overall this was a pretty solid read.

It
by Stephen King

Still reading this nice and slowly. I am loving the way he writes. I kinda just want to finish it and find out what happens.

Daughter of a Burning City
by Amanda Foody

I don’t know how I feel about this yet, I am 63 pages in and kind of bored. Even though things are happening, I’m still bored. This is my audiobook right now so I’m going to get to the halfway point and see how things go, maybe it’ll hook me.

Hocus Pocus
by AW Jantha

I plan on starting this today and I’m a little nervous, I hadn’t heard anything about this but when I went to add it on Goodreads I saw a lot of low ratings so now I’m nervous.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Trial by Fire
by Josephine Angelini

I’ve had this on my tbr for a couple years now and I want to read this now since its getting close to Halloween.

The Archived
by Victoria Schwab

same reason as above I’ve had this for a couple years now and I’m hoping to get to it and its sequel before Halloween

Catwoman: Soulstealer
by Sarah J Maas

by Kendare Blake

Mortal Gods
by Kendare Blake


What are you currently reading?

It
by Stephen King

I hit page 680 today, things are about to come together, I don’t want to say that the cavalry is coming but what would be the opposite? If the cavalry is the group that comes to kick ass, this would be the group that going to screw everything up. At least I think so, that’s how I see it unfolding.

Emma
by Jane Austen

I’m having a hard time getting into Emma, to be honest, it just hasn’t hooked me in the same way her other books have. I almost feel like the beginning is being stretched out.

Ungodly
by Kendare Blake

I’ve been enjoying this trilogy so much, it’s not blowing me away but its fun in this dark-everyone-is-dying kind of way.


What do you think you’ll read next?

After Emma, my next audiobook is probably going to be Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher. As for my next physical book, I’m hoping to read Girl on the Train before the Deweys 24 Hr Readathon.

WWW WednesdaysYay, it’s October!!
Happy October everyone!
I love this month, it feels like fall is finally starting and I am in the mood to read a lot. This is going to be such a busy month for me. I want to read lots of books, I need to do some NaNoWriMo prep, and part of that means drafting and scheduling a lot of blog posts. I am going to be glued to a keyboard for the foreseeable future.

What did you recently finish reading?

To Kill A Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

Cats Cradle
by Kurt Vonnegut

The Bell Jar
by Sylvia Plath

I talked about the three books above in my September Wrap Up and my Banned Book A Thon wrap up so I’m just going to link those. It just feels too redundant to copy and paste my thoughts and I don’t have anything to say about them.

Wildcard
by Marie Lu

This was so good! I loved everything that happened.


What are you currently reading?

Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn

I’ve been hearing so much about this ever since the tv show came out and I’ve actually been saving my Gillian Flynn books for October since last year, so it’s time.

It
by Stephen King

I’ve been intimidated by this book for so long, yet I am so curious about it and my curiosity is getting the better of me. I figured the best way for me to read this is in sections and I did a little math and worked out that I read just 40 pages every single day, I’ll finish this on Halloween. Then the BF and I are going to rent the movie and that’s how we’re planning to spend Halloween. I am 84 pages in on my second day so well see if I can stick to the plan or if I’ll go on a binge and read it in a couple days.

The Two Towers
by J.R.R. Tolkien

I am in the middle of so many different books it’s ridiculous. I was reading this for a while but I needed a break so I’m just planning on reading a little bit of this every night before I go to bed. I am loving what I’m reading but it just got really dense and a bit slow.

Catwoman Soulstealer

I would like to finally get to this and I think I’m in the mood to read it.

Two Dark Reigns
by Kendare Blake

I was so addicted to this story, I was seriously just flying through these pages because I needed to know what was going to happen next like my life depended on it.

Lord of the Flies
by William Golding

I have so many thoughts about this book and I don’t know where to start with them.


What are you currently reading?

To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

I am really enjoying this, its a bit similar to Two Dark Reigns (not that they are similar in plot, that is not what I am saying at all), what I mean is that I just can’t stop reading, I need to know what happens next. For sure plan on finishing this today.

Cats Cradle
by Kurt Vonnegut

I think I finally nailed down what my problem with Vonnegut’s stories are, and its that I don’t get the flow of the story at all. I am 40 pages in and I don’t know what the story is about yet, I feel like at 40 or 50 pages in, you should know what it’s about.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Catch 22
by Joseph Heller

I am beyond ecstatic to get to this book, this has been on my physical tbr for a couple years but it has been on a mental tbr for much much longer like I remember wanting to read this back in high school 8 years ago, but I didn’t own it back then. I imagine

The Bell Jar
by Slyvia Plath

This is another book that I’ve been interested in reading for a couple years now and Banned Books Week seems like a good time to finally dive into it.


One of the best things about my tbr for Banned Books Week is that not only am I finally getting to a lot of books that have been on my tbr for years, but I’m also crossing off a handful of books on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and that just makes me so happy!

What did you recently finish reading?

I completed two trilogies this week! I am beyond happy about that.

Frost Like Night
by Sarah Raasch

I was so ready for this to be over, I found the characters to be so annoying and there were spots where obvious answers were just staring them in the face and they refused to acknowledge it. Super frustrating to deal with.

In the Afterlight
by Alexandra Bracken

Not a bad ending to the trilogy, everything wrapped up nicely, what frustrated me a lot was the arrogance that Ruby and Cole held themselves in. Like they were the only ones ever capable of doing anything. They had massive control issues that were acknowledged by other characters but never dealt with, that was a tad annoying to see.

The Two Towers
by J.R.R Tolkien

I think I’m going to take a break from this for a while, my reading is starting to slow down and I find myself trying to push through the story a little, which doesn’t make sense because I am loving reading this, it’s just so dense. I’m currently 1/3 of the way through and my goal is to get to the halfway point and then take a break.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Since I have a feeling that Two Towers may put me in a bit of slump, I want to get to some recent releases that I’ve been excited to get my hands on.

Catwoman Soulstealer
