So, in case you missed it, I had COVID during the month of September, so I got more reading done than I usually do. Here is my list for October:
What the Hex
I just finished this one recently. It’s a great bit of romance to get you ready for Spooky season, and I promise you’ll laugh more than you’ll shiver in fear. Full review coming soon.
Buy What the Hex
If you like a good mystery that makes you root for the “villain” far more than you should, this is the book for you. It’s a nice short listen for the commute. Full review coming soon.
Panic: Ghosts and Legends
I’ve never seen the Amazon show this comes from, but this set of short stories was super entertaining. Full review coming soon.
Rock Paper Scissors
There’s a reason this was a BOTM pick. That twist at the end still has me reeling at the genius of it all. Full review coming soon.
Sleeping Dogs Lie
Are you a dog-lover or murder/mystery enthusiast? If so, you’ll love this short listen from Audible. Give it a listen while walking your pooch. Full review coming soon.
Lisa Unger’s House of Crows series
This series was absolutely mesmerizing. You should definitely give it a listen if you want to get into the spooky spirit.
The Keeper of the Night
It’s an excellent adventure through Japanese mythology, and it will be out just in time for creepy season. Since it deals with a half-reaper, half-shinigami character, it’s the perfect time for this book. This one hasn’t been published yet, so I’ll be posting my review closer to the publication date.
Nothing But Blackened Teeth
Need a good ghost story for Halloween? This is for you! This one technically hasn’t been released yet, so I’ll be posting my full review closer to the publication date.
The Girl at My Door
I didn’t actually finish this one. It’s such an interesting concept, but the main character is so unlikable that I actually found myself rooting for the villain. Honestly, this lead sleeps with her best friend’s fiancé because she’s jealous and then gets mad that the guy doesn’t break off his engagement with said best friend. I didn’t write a full review.
I almost forgot this one. Not because it’s forgettable, mind you. It was the best straight-up Halloween story I’ve ever read. Highly recommend this one for Spooky Season. Full review here.
Best Mystery Stories of 2021
I love a good mystery, and sometimes a good short mystery story is what I need most. Full review here.
There’s a Giant Trapdoor Spider Under Your Bed
Of the Dark Corners stories, this was my least favorite. Not because it’s bad, but because it just wasn’t that scary. Full review here.
What do you think of my list? Have you read any of these titles? Please drop a comment!
