I have been avoiding making TBRs recently. They stopped working for me. I’m struggling with reading this year, so it’s just easier to read whatever happens to tickle my fancy at the time. But this month I wanted to get into the Halloween spirit (also something I have never really done before) and read something a little scary. I feel like I need to preface this with I’m a total sook and normally avoid anything I think will be scary and I did have to sleep with the light on once or twice while I was reading IT.
Malorie by Josh Malerman – Birdbox scared the bejeezus out of me. It was so clever and well written, but I absolutely hated the ending. I’ve never seen the movie and I really wasn’t sure if I was interested in trying Malorie, but in the end curiosity has gotten the better of me and I have to see how things end up.
The Living Dead by George A. Romero and Daniel Kraus – October must include zombies right!! This book is an absolute beast at 656 pages. I haven’t seen Romero’s movie so I have no idea what to expect, but from what I can gather he is the father of zombie movies.
I’m sure there will be a few other books and things thrown into the mix, I might even try to watch a scary movie or two, plus it’s the month for watching The Craft and Hocus Pocus. I also have some tours coming up and some arcs that I need to get through. I’ll hopefully manage to get a couple of reviews up that fit the theme as well. So it is looking like a decent month blog wise.
