As you guys know, I love scary things AND readathons making the fall one of my favorite reading seasons. I participated in four readathons; 3 of them over many, many weeks: RIP XIV, Something Wicked Fall, and Fright Fall (here); and one over 24 hours: Dewey's readathon. For all of them, I had the original… Continue reading My very scary readathon tally …
Hi there, I've been quite inactive with my monthly summary posts and instead of catching up, I decided to just have one "massive" review. Well, it's not going to be truly massive since I actually read less than I usually do. I had quite a lot of personal things going on May through August but… Continue reading And thus concludes my June through October

What a strange and disorganized story! I enjoyed the weirdness, the confusion, and the not-knowing-what's-going-on when it was obviously done intentionally. But… Continue reading ARC Review – Lesath by A.M. Kherbasch
Chick Lit, Romance| 304 pages | 10.15.2019 | St. Martin's Griffin 1 STAR I wanted to love this novel. I am a big fan of cheesy Christmas romances, Vermont, and snowy winters. The book had the right setting. It had theoretically great characters. It had the potential for a great 'we reconnected after many years'… Continue reading ARC Review – Christmas in Vermont by Anita Hughes
Middle Grade, Horror| 136 pages | 09.01.2019 | Jolly Fish Press 2 STARS First of all, I love that middle-grade horror is starting to take off and is getting the attention it deserves. Thomas Kingsley Troupe's Haunted States of America Series is a lovely idea and a fun resource for any middle-grade library. I quite… Continue reading ARC Review – Curse of the Dead-Eyed Doll by Thomas Kingsley Troupe
