Top Ten Tuesday: Spooky books!

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! And, more importantly, Happy Halloween!  Today’s theme is a Halloween freebie, so I’ve decided to go with ten spooky books to get you into the Halloween spirit.  I haven’t read some of these, so I’ll need to add them to next year’s Halloween TBR.

🎃 Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
🎃 The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
🎃 Dracula by Bram Stoker

Giveaway Roundup

I used to win Goodreads giveaways all the time.  Back in the day, your chances to win were at least tangentially tied to your activity on the site, and I would win sometimes 3 or 4 books each week.  Things changed a couple years back and now I haven’t won anything in a good year or so.  I still religiously enter these giveaways, though, because someone has to win.

Books I’m interested in reading:

Books I can recommend:

  • Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer (3 copies available through 9/6/17)
  • Fairest (Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer (4 copies available through 9/6/17)
  • Heartless by Marissa Meyer (3 copies available through 9/6/17)
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (10 copies available through 8/27/17)
  • Room by Emma Donoghue (30 copies available through 8/28/17)

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m looking forward to in the second half of 2017

Happy Top Ten Tuesday!  The real, official topics are on hiatus through August, so I’ve decided to go back and do some topics that I missed.  This topic is from a couple of weeks ago: ten books I’m looking forward to in the second half of 2017.  I decided to split this one up and do five that are already out and five that will be coming out shortly.
