Books I`m currently reading

Hello, everyone! Although many Pumpkin Spice Lattes were keeping Blogtober alive, I had to take a small break. I am a puny human that got the flu. Anyway, today I`ve decided to share with you the books I`m currently reading. We all know that I can`t stick to a set TBR, so this type of posts are more appropriate for my mood swings. At the moment I`m juggling between 5 books, from very different genres. Originally I wanted to read only spooky/eerie books this month, but I couldn`t say no to two of my most anticipated releases. Shocking, I won`t bore you with a long intro today, so let`s get down to business:

"Strange The Dreamer" by Laini Taylor
The prose in this book is so beautiful, I have no words to describe it. I knew Laini Taylor was good, but this is blowing my mind. Thanks, Lazlo, for making me cheer for the good guys, at least once in my life. God, he`s so precious. Also, intrigued by Sarai and low-keyed terrified by Minya. Loving this book so far, it will definitely be on my Best of 2018 list.

"IT" by Stephen King
In my latest Fall TBR, I`ve mentioned I want to dedicate most of October to the one and only Stephen King. Upon further examination, I don`t know if I should have started with "IT", as it`s such a big book. But I`m really enjoying it so far! I loved last year`s adaptation and the book is so creepy and well-written. The only reason why I`m making slow progress it`s because I`m a chicken and I can`t read it at night. I remember that I used to watch so many horror movies with my dad when I was a kid, but now everything scares me.

"Haunting Violet" by Alyxandra Harvey
I didn`t know what to expect from this book, which is a blend of historical fiction and paranormal. It follows Violet, a young girl that spent years helping her mom con people as a medium. But unlike her mother, Violet can actually communicate with the dead. When a ghost asks for her help in order to catch the murderer, Violet is faced with important decisions. Unlike other titles on this list, this is not a very popular book, but it`s interesting so far.

"You" by Caroline Kepnes
There`s a TV adaptation, and I really want to watch it soon. Because if Dan was Gossip Girl (years later, it still makes no sense), then I`m pretty sure he`d turn into a stalker/ serial murderer. So far all I can say about the novel is that it`s disturbing.  The book is written in second person, and it makes you feel really uncomfortable as you feel like the stalker`s addressing you. 

"The Lady`s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy" by Mackenzi Lee
The highly anticipated sequel to my beloved "The Gentleman`s Guide to Vice and Virtue", we now follow Felicity, as she`s trying to avoid marriage and follow her dream of becoming a doctor. Again, I`m not that far into it, but I know there`s going to be another crazy adventure across Europe. I can`t wait, I`m sure Felicity will kick ass.

Have you seen the TV adaptation for "You"? Let me know if it`s any good. Also, feel free to leave me some fall recommendations. If you can`t tell, if into spooky books at the moment.

  1. It is HUGE. I'm not opposed to reading gigantic books once in a while, but I'll admit that the size of that one did scare me off. I ended up reading Misery and The Shining for King books, instead. I also made the mistake of reading The Shining at night when I was babysitting for my neighbors and I was the only one awake in the house, at that point. Their dog started barking at a strange noise outside and I had to turn on all the lights in the kitchen and living room before I kept reading. xD

    Ahhhh, I can't wait to get my hands on Lady's Guide! I should have had a copy already, but there was a snafu with my B&N pre-order, so I had to order it again and it won't be here until later this week. :(

  2. It took me 3 months to read IT. The first 700 pages were pretty slow and the ending was kinda weird. But I have been in love with the old IT movie so I had to read it one day. I'm so curious what you'll think :)
