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.

You really can say I am an obsessed reader as I read 200-300 books per year. I love Literary Fiction, Memoirs (I don't really care what kind), Mysteries and Thrillers. Once in awhile I will thrown in some YA and Romance. When I am not reading, I am a Sales Engineer for a software company, and I take care of my three cats with my husband. I love music, which my college degree is in. Looking forward to share my thoughts on all things reading.
