Spooky Season’s around the corner, and I have a few books planned out for October, as I jump back into reading my books- let’s check out the seven on my list. Before I do-I know it’s early for October, but September packed up pretty quickly, so let’s aim for one heckuva book month with my favorite genre, eh?
- Stalking Jack the Ripper (Kerri Maniscalo)
It’s honestly been a while since I’ve read this beauty-and I find October to be my time for the heebie-jeebies, without getting too deep into the spiritual world of Demons and whatnot (unless it’s busting into a cult or something along those lines). This was my favorite book when I first read it, and when I got the book I was even more excited. It’s dark and creepy, but somehow is just a…perfect book to curl up under the covers with…a barely lit room…
2. Dark Powers Book 1 (Bill Meyers)
Listen, creepy contemporary Christian is my jam, and this book-it’s what I love. It’s got the supernatural bits with a godly twist; it’s got a mystery, and yes, I’ve read this book too, but it’s been a bit, and I absolutely love it! I would definitely suggest this one, even just to find out why some teenagers are talking on the internet doing what a stranger tells them too (don’t do that).
3. The Amateurs (Sarah Shepherd)
I’d like to start off by saying I got the authors last name wrong and came up with totally different search results on google, so um…I’m just going to avoid googling author names from here on out.
I digress, moving on.
I happened to have picked this mystery up at Barnes and Noble on clearance (those are where the OG gems live), and was pleasantly surprised by the description. It’s hard to find a good teen mystery–and while I haven’t read it, it definitely is giving me high hopes; and if anything, it’ll make for some good cozy reading (I’m going to continue to talk about this because my room is being fixed up and I got a little candle that won’t bug my Guinea Pig with smell…)
4. PJ Sugar, Nothing But Trouble (Sarah May Warren)
I have something to confess.
I accidentally read the last book first, and now I’m just mad.
I was so excited, and I sat down, and I’m just like “What”, but I still read it. And then read it again. And then imagined some fan-fiction, because I was twelve when I first read it, and I was in the FanFic stage. But again, I read it at least once year-the characters are charming, and now that I have a job, I’ve decided to spring for the whole series, and let me tell you, I am excited for this one.
5. Hangman’s Curse (Frank Peretti)
Again, a book I read out of order (I read Nightmare Academy first), but I did enjoy the book. It captivates you in a way you wouldn’t expect, and Frank Peretti writes the perfect psychological thriller (from what I can remember it’s been about two years), that just, makes you feel like you have to read it a time, or three to really grasp it.
I digress, I do remember that there was a scene with spiders, and that was my unraveling at that point in Hangman’s Curse. So, this, is definitely one I know will give me chills.
6. A Study in Charlotte (Brittany Cavallaro)
This book just looks like fun, sort of a break up from the Hangman’s Curse and Stalking Jack the Ripper, but it has the mystery that I really enjoy. Watching the book trailer just made me…giddy, sir, I’m genuinely excited to read this book. Holy Hex is the trailer immersive. (Also, I may or may not have developed a crush on a book character again, and I just watched the trailer; so you know, that’s always nice).
CAN I INTERRUPT THIS POST FOR A RANT?
SHOULD NOT BE ON KINDLE.
AND I AM SORRY TO SAY, THEY ARE TOO CLOSE TO WATTPAD.
WHY WOULD I PAY FOUR DOLLARS FOR A FANFICTION THAT I COULD READ ON WATTPAD?
No offense to the authors, it’s just confusing to me, I mean, hex yeah, if you’re writing’s bomb, absolutely man I’ll support you-it’s your own work, and the characters are your own creation (you know, not based off of anything incredibly noticeable)? Sign me up, I will support small authors.
But do not make a rip-off of Twilight or a Fan-Fiction, and charge me money.
7. The Hunger Games
I’m doing it, I’m diving into the fandom.
Recently, and I don’t know if you know this, Kindle Unlimited moved a butt-ton of books to their list that you can now read for free, even the entire Harry Potter Series, and the ever-popular Selection Series. I appreciate that, because when my family first got the subscription.
I read a lot of trash.
I still do.
But my parents spent ten dollars for me to read exactly what I was ranting about early. Now, I did find some gems, but boy, when Unlimited first launched, it was a mess.
I digress, the point is, I’m excited, and now that I can get my hands on it.
After movies have been made and grammy’s awarded.
So, my question for you is, have you read any of these books? Are you excited for fall, and what’s your reading list? I’d love to know!
