Happy Halloween, Folks!

I know so many people love this holiday, and I certainly do as well. I don’t usually celebrate it with reading though, as this is the night for partying, dancing, and howling at the moon… 😉 But I do still think we have an ample enough selection of freakishly delightful tales for this most haunted of nights.

Soooooo….! Here’s a list of great reads for this day. These are all personal recommendations, and as such I’ve read them all at some point and time in my life, and loved them all dearly.

Sorry for the unexpected hiatus

I’m still recovering from the upset to my daily life which caused it (that, and of course, all the added horrors it caused which spilled into my personal life, as well… Ughhh…)


We’ll be back to proper schedule by the end of the week (HOPEFULLY) after all this craziness is… well, not quite over with, but at least a little less overwhelming. For now, have a new favourite quote from a brand new “FAVOURITE, FAVOURITE, EXTREME FAVOURITE WHY DID IT TAKE ME THIS LONG TO READ THIS?!” book 🙂

“When he died, all things soft and beautiful and bright would be buried with him.”
― Achilles (Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles)

I’ll be reviewing and spazzing over it next week. Stay tuned!

“Stories that you read when you’re the right age…”

“Stories that you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely visit.”
