Happy Halloween!

So what plans do my little daisies have for today? Are you just going to read scary books? Go with a younger sibling trick or treating? I am just going to sit around the house and watch some scary movies until my partner gets off work. I didn't get to read too many scary books this year and that makes me sad. But next year I plan to change that and read a whole lot more of them! Have a safe and happy Halloween. 

Digital Book Haul (1)

So these are all the ebooks I got recently, two were given to me by the authors.

6 Halloween(ie) Reads

This is a small list of some awesome horror novels. Have you read any for the Halloween season? Do you have any good recommendations for me? Leave a comment and let me know! Now to the list my little sunflowers! This book is very creepy and scared me quite a bit. Perfect to get into the Halloween mood. Which is almost over....  next comes Thanksgiving(US) though! I admit to actually only having read this one in bright lights. I was too freaked out to try it at night. This one didn't scare me but it had some creepy moments that is perfect for those that want a slight scare but still want to sleep at night. This is kind of like Miss Peregrine's but to me it was scarier. CREEPY! This one is the one that I freaked out over. I was so scared when reading this book that I huddled over in the corner of my bed with the blankets around me. I even slept with a night light for a few nights.  This book is not one I recommend for the feint of heart.   This one was just creepy. Nothing too ba

Book Haul (6)

This is my favorite book haul yet! I got a lot of great things. Some I bought myself with the money from my new job and others my partner bought me. Isn't he great? He knows just how to get to my heart. Love you  +Steven Sallie  not that he will even read this but yeah. I've read the whole series before but never owned any of them. Then last week at Barnes and Nobles, it was there. The very last copy. I didn't think they'd sell this in a bookstore like B&N because it's an indie book but I was so excited to see it and I snapped up the last copy! Yes, I already own a perfectly fine paperback copy but I saw this at Half Price books in hardback and it was brand new! Who on earth would want to give away this book?! Well, I guess I am... I'm going to sell them my paperback copy and get a different book. I like this cover... yeah that's the only reason I bought it. Well, my partner got this one for me actually. I found the UK version of this book and since I ne
