Happy Halloween everyone! This is one of my favorite times of year. I love a good horror story and all the scary movies (which sadly I have not been able to watch one yet). October continues to be a slow month for reading, but I did manage three books.
How Could She – This has been one of the most disappointing books I have read this year. Just reading the summary I would have thought this book was for me. So many times I am looking for books with characters similar in age to me, and I thought this would meet a ton of categories for me. Sadly, this was definitely not that book. What we got was a story about 3 superficial women, who could not care about anybody but themselves.
Bowies Bookshelf: The Hundred Books That Changed David Bowie’s Life – This was such a joy to read. I always knew David Bowie was a reader, but to get such insight to his favorite books felt like getting into this mastermind’s head. Bonus for each book, the author does provide a song and a comparable book to read. Lot’s of classics, but a lot of new books to add to your TBR list. Publication Date, November 12, 2019
Imaginary Friend – This book comes in just over 700 pages and took me 8 days to read. I was looking for that “spooky” story leading into Halloween, and yes, it ticked that box. Reviews have been mixed on this one, but I was bought in from the beginning. I savored every chapter. I never saw the ending coming. And will filling that niche that needed right now, it also provided a very important story about Mental Illness.
Hope you all get your fill of spooky books this week, if that is what you like. Stay safe and warm.
