What I Reviewed:

A Monster Calls
by Patrick Ness
A Monster Calls

Young Adult / Contemporary Fantasy. A beautiful book, as I expected it to be! I’m so glad I bought this edition, as the illustrations really only add to it.

Stalking Jack the Ripper
by Kerri Maniscalco

Young Adult / Horror / Romance. A guest review, written by Michelle! Thank you very much for contributing to the blog. Here’s hoping for more contributions in the future. 🙂

My Best Friend’s Exorcism
by Grady Hendrix
My best friend's exorcism

Horror / Young Adult. What a fun read! A veritable trip down memory lane too with lots and lots of 1980s nostalgia!

What I’m Currently Reading:


The Golem and The Jinni
by Helene Wecker
The golem and the jinni

Historical Fiction / Magical Realism. I’m at 90% through this now and really quite glad I stuck with it. This is a long and arduous read in my opinion, but might end up a new favorite depending how things work out in the end.

I’m about to jump into The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone next. A book about spiders?! Sounds like a perfect book for the month of October. I absolutely hate spiders, so this should be a real horror show for me.


Books I Hauled:

I have picked up some new books already this month. Just waiting a little while longer to detail them all in a larger book haul post.

Netgalley/Edelweiss Update

Nothing new to report here!

Writing Update

I was bad about keeping track of my wordcount this week, but I’ve estimated it out as somewhere in the realm of 4,000. It’s not as much progress as I’d like to be making, but I also didn’t dedicate quite as much time to writing this past week as real life and reading goals had me a bit distracted.

How is your month going? Reading anything great? Writing anything? Let me know in the comments section below!
