Monthly Wrap-Up (October 2017)

ezgif-4-bea5e63404Another month has gone by! And so quickly too. How does that happen? It must be because I really really love October and Halloween. Probably. Anyway, the past few weeks have been quite busy for me, and I’m actually surprised that I posted as often as I did. Haha. Sometimes I wonder how I do it! Also, as you may notice…I’m using the same GIFs that I used for the September wrap-up, and that’s because I love Halloween and I think that they’re so cute (and funny haha)!

    I am so excited to read your reviews for the books coming out in 2018! As well, the Horrorstor sounds amazing! Have you read My Best Friend’s Exorcism? It’s by the same author and has the full 80’s feel to it 🙂

    Ahh!! I love this post!!! I also read Stalking Jack the Ripper, so good!! I’m gonna go and check out your review on This Darkness Mine… I’m so curious about this book, though I haven’t read yet The Female of The Species so I know if I like the author or not… And looking forward to your review on Horrorstör, I recently read My Best Friend’s Exorcism and really enjoyed it, so I’m hoping to enjoy this one from the author, too… I’m looking forward to see what you think!

      Haha yeah I kind of went overboard last month! Not sure how I managed it along with full time work. Though probably it’s because it got really cold here in Canada, and it really cut down on my other activities. Haha. And ohhh I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for your review for Forest of a Thousand Lanterns! So curious to see what you think.

      Hahaha yeah I kind of started panicking….so I needed a schedule to keep track of things. It helps me stay calm lmao. I find it more impressive when bloggers have posting schedules! I tried that and it did NOT work for me.

      I hope that you have a lovely November as well! xoxo
