Happy Top Ten Tuesday bookworms, I hope it’s been terrific so far!

This week’s theme is Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach. Now bookworms, I love reading, every book blogger does, but I cannot read by a pool/beach. It’s not like I’m afraid of getting the book wet or anything like that, it’s that if I’m near water then I’m swimming in it! I just love swimming too much! The idea of sitting on a deck/beach reading when I’m so close to the water is just mind boggling to me, but you do you!

So I’ve tried to choose some water-themed books that you might want to read by some water and I might want to read because it makes me want to swim! Continue reading

Bookmark Monday is a weekly feature by Guiltless Reader.

Wow, haven’t posted one of these in a while! Sorry about that bookworms, though I will say I’ve been doing a pretty good job of posting on here and I’m pretty proud of that.

I’m still reading That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston (sigh). Don’t let the sigh fool you, I am enjoying it, I’m more-so sighing at myself and how slow of a reader I am this year. Snap out of it! Continue reading

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

When the author, Taylor Thomas, messaged me about this novel, I immediately became interested because of the title. You see, I have a love/hate relationship with Halloween that is much more hate than love. I love the magic that Halloween brings, the myths, the stories, and the magic. But I absolutely hate being scared, and that seems to be the main focus of the holiday. From reading the description, I didn’t get any scary vibes that I usually do when reading the back of horror movies, but instead the feel of a cute, spooky mystery that reminded me of Gravity Falls. I wasn’t wrong.  Continue reading
