Hey Guys todays prompt is a review of all the Halloween/horror books that I’ve read this month. But sadly I havent read any, yup that’s right I havent been sticking to my TBR 😔. I tried but I just couldn’t get into any of the books so I just read something else. So instead I’m gonna put all the Halloween reads that are on my TBR.
- MY PLAIN JANE
I originally got this book in the July Owlcrate, I hadn’t read My Lady Jane so I picked it up and loved it! But I sadly never got to it, I’m hoping I can read it before Halloween
You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!)
Or does she??
Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.
2. CITY OF GHOSTS
I really want to read this book! I love Victoria Schwab’s writing so much and the plot to City of Ghost sounds amazing.
Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspectres, ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.
When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.
3. THE RAVEN BOYS
I read the raven boys and fell in love, I started The dream thieves but never finished it, I find that The Raven Cycle id a supernatural book so I think its perfect for this season
“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, her life becomes caught up in the strange world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
4. GRIM LOVELIES
I have been waiting for this book, since april and I couldn’t be more excited to read it. I havent bought it cause I put myself on a book buying ban. but I’m hoping to end my ban and buy it soon.
Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime.
Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose there lives…but if they succeed, they will be more powerful than anyone.
