For my thoughts, go to: Bridget Blogs Books. This review will have some level of spoilers so if you haven't read the book, click at your own risk.
So, with the category Genre: Horror to fill, did I go to my Kindle folder for Horror and choose one of the 53 books waiting to be read? Noooooo...
This time of year it's more fun to go to the top 100 Free Books in the Horror category on Amazon and start loading up more! There are certain authors always there that I've learned to skip past because they don't write well or their stuff always turns out to be Romance. Nothing against Romance, but it's not what I look for under Horror and I resent spaces being taken up by inappropriate genres. Advice to writers to get their books listed under as many categories as possible actually harms their reputation.
So, I've acquired all those pictured. The Amulet Thief might take over the Relics and Curiosities square to relieve me of an 800+ page book and one of these will fill my Horror genre square. I'm leaning towards Creepy Pet, just my sort of thing.
I think I may need to keep a folder for possible future Bingo selections. I even found a cozy that looked fun. I seem to be finding a lot of anthologies this year. That could be an interesting category for a future Bingo.
If you're into zombie dystopia, The Fall series is all up for free today. Grab them quick because free offers often end after the weekend. I can't vouch for the quality of any of these but you can't beat the price.

For anyone curious, here is my most recent read books!
Halloween Party by R L Stine [3/5 stars]
I'm really torn on what to rate this book. In many ways it is outdated and problematic, but the nostalgia factor hangs on really tightly to me. I've probably read it at least a few times since I was a preteen. This read through was the slowest I've ever read one of these books; it wasn't engaging me.

The Secret Bedroom by R L Stine [3/5 stars]
I read it in one day. Some of his books are like candy, though that might be the nostalgia speaking. I felt a lot more engaged in this book. I really must say that I hated the mean girl aspect, which seems to show up in most RL's books. Also, why do the mean girls have to be redheads?! (Are we really seen as mean, stuck up people?)

milk and honey by rupi kaur [4/5 stars]
I started this one on a whim after getting the Scribd subscription. I listened to the author "perform" these poems with the audiobook while reading the physical copy. That heightened my enjoyment of the collection. Some are very hard to hear/read and deal with abuse, sexual abuse and other things people might find triggering.

Frindle by Andrew Clements [4/5 stars]
Another book I started on a whim after getting Scribd. Nostalgic book. I enjoyed the story very much, but not sure how to rate it. Child me would probably say it is a 5 star. I'm not afraid to admit there were a couple parts that made me choke up in a happy way, especially the ending, which I adored. Is this book farfetched? Maybe, but I love that it might give kids and kids at heart a feeling that anything is possible.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman [5/5 stars]
I read the 10th anniversrary copy on Scribd. The 10th Anniversary Edition does not really offer that much more, so if you already own a copy of the book, I wouldn't suggest you buy the 10th Anniversary Edition, too. Unless of course you want to collect everything Neil Gaiman (I know some people like to collect multiple copies of the same book...etc.) This is my second time reading it. I still love the story (I even love the movie more. Shh, don't tell anyone.)

And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson [5/5 stars]
Ahhhh I love this picture book!

Julia's House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke [4/5 stars]
I am proud to be an adult who still loves and finds comfort in books published/meant for children. I don't think books should have age limits anyway. This little picture book was very cute.

The Sleepwalker by R L Stine [4/5 stars]
I really liked this one. I read it as a preteen, but I couldn't remember the plot twist. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is how R L Stine always writesa male characters who think they are entitled to the girl character and how the boy treated the girl when she turned him down. Very problematic element. Rape vibes and abusive treatment.
Especially, considering how she ends up getting back with that boy and they joke around with "maybe I like creepy guys." Uh...no thank you! People, please don't stay with a person who treats you how Link treated Mayra. His actions were way over the line, he even threatened her with the "you'll be sorry" line.

Read for R L Stine: Fear Street Challenge (August book)
This Star Won't Go Out by Esther, Wayne, Lori Earl, with parts written by friends and family. [3/5 stars]
I don't know how to sum up my feelings about this book. I've read it twice. I started it again this "Esther Day" in her honor. It is hard to read and heartbreaking because you know the end before you start.
5 stars for my feels for Esther for sure. 3/3.5 for the layout/presentation of the book.(All the pictures and drawings were great, though.) It was confusing in parts and if I was clueless about all the references, I'm not sure I would have understood much. I relate to Esther and her Nerdfighter ways, love of Harry Potter...etc. She was a great girl that we lost too soon.
