    October TBR & Readathons

    October!! YESS!! October is my favorite month! And it’s also my favorite time of year to read and do readathons! This October I plan on participating in 4. Crazy large amount…I know! Not sure if i’ll finish, but I really want to dedicate October to reading! Since i have a reading limit of 6ish books a month, I’ve decided to double up as much as possible…which makes this pretty challenging. I may need to change these up mid-month.

    #FridayFeature There Will Come A Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

    This week’s book is a new release that i picked up last week. I didn’t know much of if when i picked it up, only that it’s pretty popular and that it’s one of my favorite genres: fantasy. Seems interesting but I probably wont be reading it until after Halloween. I just have way too many other books lined up. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick & I have a few books due for review.

    #FridayFeature Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus

    This week’s book is one I recently found at the dollar tree! Woot, $1. Admittedly, when i read the title i was kind of expecting….something dark….like a vampire romance. Turns out that it’s a regular romance… :/…not my favorite, but i will try to not be too prejudice. I’ve never heard of it and can’t find many reviews. Dang, those “beautiful cover” impulse buys are dangerous, lol. I probably wont start it for atleast a month though. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick & I have a few books due for review.

    Death By Pumpkin Spice by Alex Erikson

    This was a near perfect cozy mystery! It takes place at a Halloween party in a huge (haunted?) mansion during a thunderstorm. What else do you need really? About 80% of the characters are new to this story, so there were many many options on who the killer might be. There were hidden clues throughout that the narrator didn't actually explain, so if you are a seasoned mystery reader, you could probably solve the case before Krissy. This story also had a lot of action...which i found sort of interesting in a cozy mystery. Not sure I've seen a story structure quite like this before, but i really liked it.…

    A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

    I'd say overall this was a very good book. I thought i would have liked it more though since it cover topics from my major.... but overall i found it just ok. I think my main issue was that i found the story disjointed and didn't see what the first half of the book had to do with the main idea....not that I ever caught the main purpose. It sort of seemed like a meandering story of someones life and not really plot driven. With that being said though, I really love the glimpses into Grace's life. I think she is an interesting character. Towards the end, we did see…
