Book Hauls, Monthly Wrap Up

October 2020 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hi Everyone! It is the end of October….definitely went too fast but I am happy about 2020 ending because it has been a shitty year. Let’s hope that 2021 is better and we can get back to normal lives. I am pretty proud of myself, I have read a lot this month compare to the other months, I am hoping that means my reading slump is over for now. I read 9 books this month between blog tours and TBR and Beyond Book Club’s game this month.

Horrid by Katrina Leno: After the death of Jane’s father, her mother and Jane move from California to Maine to live in her late grandmother’s dilapidated old house. It is where Jane’s mom grew up. The history behind the house and a lot of dealing with grief in the present and past. This book was perfect TBR and Beyond group read for October, it was creepy without all of the goriness of a horror book. I enjoyed the book, it was perfect for October with the fall and Halloweenish environment. The only thing I didn’t like was the ending, I was looking for more to end of it. If you are looking for a mixture of horror, mystery/thriller and paranormal book then this would be perfect. Rating: 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite by various authors: Will post detail review for each story later. It was a nice book of short stories to do with vampires and I like some of stories and other ones left me with wanting more information about the story. Rating: 🧛‍♀️🧛‍♂️🧛‍♀️🧛‍♂️

The Haunting of Beatrix Greene: Vol. 1 by Rachel Hawkins, Ash Parsons, and Vicky Alvear Shecter: Received the eARC from NetGalley for this book and I really loved this book. It had all of the elements of a horror book, the book is set Victorian England with Beatrix Greene posing as spiritual medium. She meets James Walker, who is going around disapproving psychics and mediums. When he offers her a job to go Ashbury Manor to see if it is haunted or not, she couldn’t pass it up with the amount money he was offering her. James has a dark secret which only a true medium can uncover. This book was definitely creepy and kept you on your toes at every corner. I hope we get a Vol. 2 of this book. Rating: 🔮🔮🔮🔮🔮
