Please stop reading now if you don’t want spoilers.  I will have pictures of every item in the box.

Down The TBR #54

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

 

I’m going to start doing these a little differently to save picture space/time.  I’ll still list all 15-20 books, but I’m only going to add a few pictures.  It will likely be the books I’m keeping unless there are none for the week.  Then I’ll add a few random ones so it’s not super boring.

October 2018 Book Haul

 

October was a crazy month for book releases.  I also went to the YA Lit Conference, so we bought a ton of books there.  Hopefully I won’t buy as much in November.  I need a couple slower months after September and October.

 

I’ll start with digital books this time since there aren’t too many of those.

31 Horror Movie Recommendations for Halloween!

 

I am a huge fan of horror movies, so I thought it would be fun to recommend some for Halloween.  This is not even close to all my favorites, but I hope you find some fun choices that you might not have seen before.  I could honestly list 100+ that I’ve seen!

 

These are in no particular order.  I can’t share photos for all of them because of space, but there will be descriptions for each movie.  You’ll see a lot from the 80’s on my list.

Halloween (1978)

The year is 1963, the night: Halloween. Police are called to 43 Lampkin Ln. only to discover that 15 year old Judith Myers has been stabbed to death, by her 6 year-old brother, Michael. After being institutionalized for 15 years, Myers breaks out on the night before Halloween. No one knows, nor wants to find out, what will happen on October 31st 1978 besides Myers’ psychiatrist, Dr. Loomis. He knows Michael is coming back to Haddonfield, but by the time the town realizes it, it’ll be too late for many people.

My newest Wonder Crate from Ink & Wonder came in and I am thrilled with everything.  This really is my favorite sub box now.  The theme is Halloween and I was so afraid they would sell out before I could get one.  I missed the first batch, but managed to get one the second day.
