Well, here I am again, crawling out of my blogless hidey-hole in abject shame! New books and ebooks (still somehow not real books to me) keep stacking up (well not quite sure what ebooks do…queueing?), but I find that I’m reading less and less fiction and more and more textbooks and feminist newsblogs etc. I’m still missing my commute, cause that was sacred reading time and I have yet to meet a fellow bookwork here in real life. I thought I’d start up writing a few lines about my reads again, even if it’s just for myself, to get back into things. So Im very optimistically going to set a goal of 2 books a month (3-years-ago- me would have been horribly embarrassed), I hear you all laughing! 🙂
Since I finally have a free weekend and am feeling particularly anti-social, I grabbed a couple of seasonal books and decided to lock myself in and enjoy a weekend reading. So here’s what’s on my Halloween reading pile:
Yes, I am in fact the last person on the planet to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I thought it was suitably creepy for the occasion and hopefully I’ll enjoy it, since I can then spend the next Halloweens reading the sequels.
ALso a classic, which I have somehow not yet read. I’m not sure why, since I love Shirley Jackson’s books. Perhaps I didn’t want to blow through all her works in one go? Who knows, but this one I am definitely reading this weeked 🙂
Any recommendations on new creepy reads I shouldn’t miss out on? What are you reading this Halloween?
