Bookending Autumn | Best Horror Movies to Watch for Halloween

Morning, bloggers!

I want to go outside of my typical niche and talk about horror flicks. I am a book blogger, but movies are another hobby I have. Halloween is one of my well-loved holidays. And there’s no chance to skip a post about scary films to get you in the spirit.

So here are my horror faves! I hope you love the post.

Halloween Song Book Tag

Morning, ghouls!

Who’s up for another Halloween tag? The weekend has arrived, and I want to take it easy since I’ve found out I have Achilles tendonitis, which is much more painful than I thought it would be.

I love to see all the new Halloween tags popping up. I want to thank Nicole from A Beautiful Chaos of Books for tagging me. Please check out her BookTube account!

I hope you enjoy.

Top Ten Tuesday | Perfect Spooky Books to Read for Halloween

Happy, Tuesday!

‘Tis the night before Halloween. And every ghost was stirring, even the dead mouse. We officially have one more day until the glorious night. And I am stoked!

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Today’s theme is Halloween freebie! So I’ve picked books that are perfect to read for Halloween.

Strange Grace

Years have passed since a village made a deal with the devil. In order to keep that pact when every Slaughter Moon comes, it must offer the body of a young man. But three friends uncover more than what they expect.

What do you expect when a village decides to make a bargain with the devil? Nothing good. Colour me intrigued. I needed this book yesterday.

 

Lantern’s Ember

Jack is a Lantern, a supernatural who must guard the portal to the Otherworld. But his duty to keep the creatures there turns difficult when he finds Ember, who feels the pull of that world.

Right now, I have a lot of cover love. And I adore the play-on-words in the title. I’ve read some mixed reviews, but the premise is unique.

 

City of Ghosts

Cassidy Blake must learn how to learn her ability to see ghosts before her powers get her in trouble.

I’m more than halfway done this middle grade read, and I love it! I’m a sucker for a children’s spooky book. I knew I had to read it for this Halloween. Cassidy may be one child who I relate to the most. I don’t expect anything less from Victoria.

 

The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Evelyn will be murdered, and one man must find a way to identify the murderer and prevent her death. So every day, he wakes up in a different guest’s body.

I see a lot of buzz surrounding the book. And many of my blogger friends have raved about it. I cannot wait to dig into this mystery. It reminds me of the game Clue.

 

Broken Things

Everyone believes Mia and Brynn killed Summer Marks. But they weren’t the murderers. On the anniversary, they must find out what happened in the woods.

I’ve talked about this book before. But I’m dying to get my hands on it. It’s such a great book for a dark, scary night.

 

Nightingale

June Hardie wants nothing more than to experience life, but society and her parents demand otherwise. When she protests, they put her in Burrow Place Asylum, but that’s the least of her concerns.

I haven’t heard a lot about this book, but doesn’t that cover creep you out? But being committed into an insane asylum is my ultimate fear. But I love how the author injects feminism into her writing.

 

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Halloween Book Tag

Morning, everyone!

We just have a few more days until the special night. I found this tag at Thrice Read! I couldn’t pass it by.

Lately, I’ve been a ghost on here. I needed some time off because my health decided to kick me in the butt. And I don’t want to find any Kingdom of Ash spoilers. But I’m good though. 😉 So let’s get the the post!

Blogoween | My Favourite Fall Covers

Hey, everyone!

Today’s my second stop for Blogoween, and I’m loving each post. We officially have seven, I repeat, seven more days until Halloween. At this stage, I’m contemplating the mandatory horror movie binging and stuffing my face with candy and other goodies I probably shouldn’t eat.

Anthony from Keep Reading Forward came up with this creative prompt. I absolutely adore fall colours, so there’s no chance I can pass up this post. So here are my favourite book covers that remind me of the Fall/Halloween. I hope you enjoy!!

Red

Shadow of the Fox

I’m slowly getting through the book. And while I love the Japanese lore and culture, I’m not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. However, Tatsumi, the male main character, may be the saving grace of the book.

 

Scythe

I regret not reading this book. I truly do. I never paid attention to the series, and I instantly knew I had to buy it once I finished reading the blurb. How can I pass up a sci-fi where teenagers must learn how to kill others in order to restore balance?

 

For a Muse of Fire

I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this new YA fantasy. I love how this duology is inspired by Asian culture. And I am always down for forbidden magic, especially necromancy.

 

Orange

Muse of Nightmare

I can’t stop looking at this cover. It looks perfect beside Strange the Dreamer. I’ve heard nothing but praise about the series, and I cannot wait to get to it!

 

Allegiant

As a blogger, I hope I don’t spoil readers when they read my reviews. I’ll give just enough details that will tempt them to read it. But naturally, one sci-fi series I wanted to read got spoiled for me. And do I like that it did? No. But reading the reviews have told me I may not have missed out on much.

 

Illuminae

Kristoff and Kaufman mix together space, corporate war, and a deadly plague to create a beautifully immersive novel. I’m not surprised that most of the books on my Christmas list are written by him. I have some serious catching up to do!

 

Yellow/Gold

The Wren Hunt

When the Wren Hunt hit Instagram, I knew I want to read it. This new YA fantasy tells a tale of Wren, a 17-year-old Augur, who must find a bring to stop the war between her people and the Judges, who took her and her family’s powers.

 

Lifel1k3

I’m still reeling over the ending. I am not worthy of this man’s genius and writing. I truly am not. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with a Mad Max-meet-Romeo and Juliet science fiction, but Kristoff has a talent of pulling that off.

 

Grace and Fury

Every time I walk past this book on my shelf, it’s calling out to me. This YA novel reminds me of The Handmaid’s Tale. It brings a feministic side to court intrigue. I hope I get to read it soon!
