Man. Oh. Man.
I have been trying to get this reading list up since the beginning of this month. Actually, that's a lie. I really aimed for mid-month so you could sink your teeth into some spooky Halloween reads to lend to the spooky mood of all Hallow's Eve, but that was to no avail.
However, what I did learn, is that I found reading to be the MOST difficult thing to possibly do. How did it become so? I would go through books like water. There would never be enough of them on my shelf to satiate my thirst for the written word. But lately, it's just been an impossible task. I remember always being told when I was in high school to "enjoy reading now, because when you're older, you won't have as much time for it."
I literally GUFFAWED at the thought of that. Like, excuse me, no, I am the queen of never having anything to do because I go through everything at the speed of light. However, when it comes to reading, I catch my mind drifting elsewhere a lot more easily than when I was younger. One word in a book can make me link it to something in my reality, which topples that one thought into a whole a monologue, until I realize I am not even paying attention to the plot any longer.
Just. So. Sad.
Any who, with my long winded intro outlining my personal reading plights aside, let's get into the reading list I made for myself, read one book of, and am now passing to you so that you may hopefully get a go at it, that is, if you so wish. Click the book to read the synopsis.
(This was the only book I read form the list. I enjoyed that it was definitely spooky and festive, but at 500 pages, I probably should have started with one a bit slimmer.)
Even thought the spooky holiday has passed, fall is not yet over, so I will probably still be getting into this reading list. Hopefully I'll be done by February? (UGH I can't with myself)
