Spooky Halloween Reads! 👻

Believe it or not, Halloween isn’t my favorite time of the year (Christmas steals the deal on that one) but that’s mainly because I’m the biggest scaredy cat there is. I don’t think I’ve ever actually completed one horror movie because I get too freaked out. (The closest one was Paranormal Activity, but I just got too bored to finish it 😆).

Butttt that doesn’t mean I don’t get caught up on all the fun festivities it brings. I love seeing all the decorated houses on my street as well as hanging out with my friends on the night of Halloween.

So, in my attempt to contribute to the Halloween spirit as much as I can, what better way than to share some books that are pretty suitable to read this month? The ones I have listed aren’t all scary (at all), but they have a dark factor to them that makes up for the ‘conventional scary’ (if that makes any sense….)

My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren

Thank you NetGalley for providing me with an e-arc of this book! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

38357345Title: My Favorite Half-Night Stand
Christina Lauren
Publication Date: December 4, 2018
My Rating: 4 stars! ⭐️
With a world-famous speaker at their university, Millie Morris and her four woefully single male colleagues make a pact that they’ll all find dates. Unfortunately, Millie has more success helping them make matches online than she does navigating the onslaught of lewd pics in her own feed. But when she creates a fictional name for a new account, Millie finds herself vying for the online attention of a man she sees every day in the flesh.

My Review:
You can probably imagine how over the moon I was when I got the email from Netgalley saying that they approved this book…especially after me just finishing Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating!

October TBR! [2018]

Hello everyone! I know it’s been a while since my last post….not even going to lie, I feel like I forgot how to write these! But over the past few weeks, I’ve really had to prioritize school over all my other hobbies since it was starting to get insanely stressful!

But I’m back for now, thankfully things have calmed down a bit so I’ll definitely be pre-writing some posts in my drafts in case this happens again!

Unfortunately I barely got a chance to read in September….school really sucks, but I’m hoping to squeeze a few during the Thanksgiving break!

Now onto the TBR!


Fun fact, the only book that I did manage to read in September was written by Christina Lauren, which was Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating! It was such a cute and adorable read that I kinda fell down a spree of adding every Christina Lauren book to my shopping cart…and I somehow managed to get an e-arc of one of her upcoming books! From the snippets I’ve read so far, two words…ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. Continue reading “October TBR! [2018]”
