Today’s post is the second part of my Overcoming a Reading Slump series! Today I will be giving you some tips on overcoming a reading slump when you just can’t seem to get motivated to pick up a book. I will be taking a week off from posts during the week of Thanksgiving, but regularly scheduled posts will be back beginning Tuesday, November 27!
Happy Tag Tuesday! I found this “Three Bookish Things” tags over at Jamsudreams, so please go check out their original post!
Ahh the reading slump. It happens to us all at some point or another. There are different reading slumps: a book hangover, which happens after you finish a really good book that you hated to see end or a slump when you can’t find anything that captures your interest. Part one of this two part series will focus on getting over a book hangover.
I listened to the audiobook of this back in October and absolutely loved it! I have listened to both of Sager’s book on audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed both books. I can’t wait for his next book in 2019!
**Disclaimer: As with all of my reviews, I do post the entire plot synopsis before my review. However, I will always recommend for Thriller Thursday reviews that you skip the plot synopsis. Thrillers are better when you go in knowing little to nothing about the plot. Happy reading!
It has been two months since I did a Down the TBR Hole post! My intentions were too clean up my Goodreads account each month, and then I forgot about this post! I will try to do better with keeping up with this!
To update from the August post: I kept House of Leaves by Mark. Z Danielewski and Pines by Blake Crouch on my TBR list. I am leaving both books for now because I am still interested in them, I just have not had the time to read either!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen the video I posted in my stories about not making a TBR for November. I have decided to give myself some flexibility with my TBR this month. I am a mood reader, so very rarely do I stick to the exact TBR I have set for myself anyway. However, I felt so pressured to stick to my TBR because of readathons, and as a result, I did not enjoy some of my reads as much. I have a general idea of some books that I want to read this month, but I am not going to hold myself to that if I am not in the mood for it. I do need to read at least one of the books I received from publishers last month, so I will be making that a priority.

Sorry Tag Tuesday is a little late today! Enjoy my answers to the Horror Movie Tag! This is my next to last post for Blogoween. My final post will be my October wrap-up tomorrow. I hope you have enjoyed the spooky content, but I am ready for Christmas cheer!
As part of my final posts for Blogoween, I decided to put my creative thinking hat on and try something different. Today I will be discussing the characters I would invite to a Halloween party. While. I do not normally attend or throw a Halloween party, so I thought this would be a fun “what if” type post so I could plan my perfect party.
This post is in partnership with Penguin Young Teen, who graciously sent me a copy of The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart for the Wicked Reads Campaign. I actually screamed and jumped up like a kid when I opened the package! This book is perfect for the Halloween season and reminds me of Stephen Kind’s IT, The Chalk Man, and Stranger Things. I do not want to give away too much about the plot because the less you know, the more you will enjoy the book. The book takes place in the 1980s and follows a group of friends who find a mysterious box hidden in the forest. They each put something in the box and then make a pact to never come back alone or at night and never take back their item. The friends decide to make a pact together promising to never visit the box alone or at night and to never take back their item. Four years later, someone has broken the pact, and terrifying things begin to happen.
Hello, readers! I mostly focus on books and reading here on my blog, but I can’t let October pass without talking about my favorite spooky movies and TV shows! I am going to try to keep it to thirteen because ’tis the season for unlucky 13.
