Blogtober TV Series Review: Santa Clarita Diet

Sheila and Joel Hammond are a married realtor team in Santa Clarita, California.

Blogtober Day 21: Hocus Pocus Readathon Check In

What I’ve read so far: So far I’ve finished two of four books. You fulfilled the prompt for reading about an evil character and Reviving the Hawthorn Sisters the prompt for reading a book featuring sisters. Neither of these books are particularly spooky or Halloween themed, but I enjoyed them both thoroughly! How I’m feeling: …

Blogtober Day 20: Film and TV for October

I’ll admit, I haven’t gotten around to watching nearly as many Halloween themed movies and TV shows as I meant to. I just don’t have a lot of time during the week for more than sleeping, and I prioritize a lot of other stuff. But I have managed a few watching sessions! Midsommar I finally …

I especially enjoy a magic system with definite consequences for using too much or the wrong kind of magic. I like when …

There are some awesome settings out there, but for today I want to list out some of the best spooky themed settings that books can draw you into. A Ruined Building Not necessarily haunted in the traditional sense, a dilapidated manor home or a ruined church can be the perfect spooky setting. Sometimes the ruined …

Blogtober Day 12: My Favorite Monster

I adopted this idea from the list on Entertainingly Nerdy! To be fair to all fictional monsters, and because I already hype vampires enough, I am eliminating vampires from the running in this category. It’s the only way this post won’t end up yet again with me discussing vamps! For this post, I’m thinking of …

Blogtober Day 10: Ghostly Tropes I Like

Yes, it’s time for another spooky tropes post! These will be tropes I like that involve ghosts or appear often in ghost themed books, horror or not. Connection to the Dead I enjoy when a book is about a descendant of a ghost, or focuses on somebody that has a strong connection to a deceased …
