October is my FAVOURITE month of the year. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not huge on Halloween as a holiday. I don’t decorate the house, I’m allergic to raw pumpkin and my years of stumbling home drunk in a slutty witch costume are long dead.
No, I love October for the scary vibes! The colder days and darker nights are perfect for reading and watching all the new horror releases.
I signed myself up for 3 different readathons last month. A ridiculous idea really, trying to choose between books, movies or television was painful- as were my readathon results, check back later this week to see how I did.
Hark The Herald Angels Scream Anthology
The Haunting Of Hill House
Welcome To Dystopia – Gordon Van Gelder
Populace – A M Wilson
OtherEarth – Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller
With titles like these on my TBR you might be surprised I only managed 7 reads this month! Aside from The Exorcist landing me in a terrible reading slump there were a few other distractions…
Horror Movies watched:
The Nun 💀💀💀💀
Halloween original 💀💀
Halloween 2018 💀💀💀
Hold The Dark 💀💀💀
The Haunting Of Hill House
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina

Last week I was honoured to be featured on Twitter’s blog of the day with @The_WriteReads and WHOA what a response! My viewer stats on that Thursday alone equated to my usual weekly average. #Blogoftheday is an incredibly supportive community and I urge any and all book bloggers to check it out.
I’m also thrilled to see my very first tag creation FRIENDS is making it’s way out into the blogosphere. If you haven’t given it a whirl yet consider yourself tagged!

What a wonderfully large collection of books in October! Horror is definitely not my favourite genre of book or TV (I’m a huge wimp 😂) but I’m trying to get into it more. Which of your horror reads would you recommend? Ooh, a FRIENDS tag, that sounds super fun! I’ll definitely have to check that out. Great post!
Thanks Kelly 🙂 Horrstor was a shorter, quirky, ghosts-in-ikea style story.. but I wouldn’t want to be responsible for giving you nightmares! Lol.
Looks like you had a great October! We also saw the new Halloween and we’re watching The Haunting of Hill House right now. I think we’re on episode 4 or 5.
Thanks so much for the shout out! I’m delighted you enjoyed the trailer too – SO FUNNY! 🙂
