Hope you all have a great month so far. Isn’t October the scariest month of all? I love decorating my room for fall/halloween. Crafting in this theme is also fun! The colors are nice. For the scary parts of the decorations you can do lots of things. You can make it really scary, like really scary, shit-yo-pants-scary or you can make it less scary. Kawaii-scary for example.
This season is also the perfect timing to go back to your cozy reading nook an snuggle up with your favorite book and a cup of hot tea or coffee.
I’ve selected 4 books that are ideal to read this month for Halloween.
As you can see I’ve selected 4 books. I’m not a very quick reader so I’m most likely not going to finish those books in time… (scusi…)
The Darkness rising trilogy by Kelley Armstrong
I love trilogies and series! I own two of Kelley Armstrong’s trilogies. This trilogy is filled with dark mysteries in a very small, claustrophobic town near Vancouver Canada, so small you can’t find it on the map. It’s the perfect place to grow up for Maya. But when her best friends–captain of the swim team–dies in a calm lake, Maya begins to suspect there’s a price to be paid for those perfect lives.
Shadows by Robin Mckinley
Maggie knows something’s off about Val, her mom’s new husband. Val is from Oldworld, where they still use magic, and he won’t have any tech in his office-shed behind the house. But—more importantly—what are the huge, horrible, jagged, jumpy shadows following him around? Magic is illegal in Newworld, which is all about science. The magic-carrying gene was disabled two generations ago, back when Maggie’s great-grandmother was a notable magician. But that was a long time ago.
Then Maggie meets Casimir, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen. He’s from Oldworld too—and he’s heard of Maggie’s stepfather, and has a guess about Val’s shadows. Maggie doesn’t want to know . . . until earth-shattering events force her to depend on Val and his shadows. And perhaps on her own heritage.
In this dangerously unstable world, neither science nor magic has the necessary answers, but a truce between them is impossible. And although the two are supposed to be incompatible, Maggie’s discovering the world will need both to survive.
