Mission Accomplished

I completed all the criteria and bonuses for my Reading Rivalry team this month. Tomorrow is the last day. We are so close to the #1 spot. I’m going to try to get one more book in before midnight to snag a few more points. The good news is that partial pages count so anything will help. Go team go!

P.S.: MVS called me a competitive reader last week and I totally loved it. Book nerd for life!

From Below

I’m currently reading a horror novel about a group of deep sea divers making a documentary about exploring a long-lost ship wreck where the ship disappeared under mysterious circumstances. I’m already totally creeped out just reading about them diving 300 feet below the surface. While I love the ocean, I’m extremely frightened of drowning, and the idea of being that far down totally freaks me the fuck out. I can tell this is going to be a good one! LOL

bookish concerns

I’ve stopped updating about individual books. I’m not entirely sure why. It just sort of happened. Anyway – I still want to keep a record here, and I’ve finished two books in the last 24 hours, so it’s update time!

Recent reads/reading challenge progress:

I’m in the Roxane Gay book club, and the September pick was a beautiful, but disturbing, book of poetry. I highly recommend it if poetry is your jam too. Trigger warning for sexual abuse.

And I love, love, love the cover. That seal. Swoon.

And…onto the next one! The first chapter has me hooked!!

This Tuesday is the release of The Last House on Needless Street, which I’ve been drooling over for ages. I’m so very excited!! I pre-ordered so it should automatically download to my kindle on midnight on Tuesday. Squee!!! Might have to stay up late.

Gotta wait until mid-Oct for Nothing But Blackened Teeth. Gah. So ready for that one too, but I do love the book anticipation. I love spooky book season!!

Okay – off to enjoy. 😘
