Still not a favorite from the series.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

So on my YouTube channel I am participating in a readalong called potterwatch. Each month we are reading a Harry Potter book and watching the film that goes with it. Last month we did the first book and first movie. So this month it's book 2 turn. I still have to watch the movie for the book.

So this is only my second time reading this book, I never reviewed it before, because at the time the book first came out, I just read books and didn't rate them. If I would have back then, it would have probably been only 3 1/2 stars, but on the reread, u really felt I liked it much more this time around. I love the flying car scenes, the ending scene with Harry and Dobby. Things I didn't like and annoyed me was any scenes with Lockhart, and any scenes with Heromine and Molly, falling for what he was trying to sell. Heromine is suppose to be so freaking smart, but falls for that shit. And at first Dobby gets on my freaking nerves, but of course I start to love my adorable little house elf. 

Really can't wait to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the first time I read it, I would say it was my favorite book and movie as well. So I can't wait to see if any of the positions of my book love changes. 

I will tell you my least to favorite, which I told you already my favorite and least favorite. 

7. chamber of secrets. 

6.the Goblet of fire 

5. The sorcerer's stone 

4. Order of the Phoenix 

3. The half blood Prince 

2. The Deathly Hallows 

1. The prisoner of Azkaban. 

So there we go

Figured the big reveal from almost the beginning.
Damsel - Elana K. Arnold

The book was just okay, not the best book ever but I have read a lot worst, that's for sure. I figured out the big reveal if you can consider it, a big reveal. I really liked Ama a lot, but Emory and all the other guys in the book were all major assholes. They treated women like there only around to serve them in the bedroom. And Emory was very cruel, I just couldn't stand him at all. I liked the ending for one reason but don't want to mention why because of spoilers. I did like that the author didn't try to make Emory change, because it definitely wouldn't have even gotten one star, let what I gave it which like I mentioned was 3 stars.

Halloween Bingo 2018 | Update #4

 

 
 

So I think I've made all of my decisions for my squares now... not that it'll stay that way, because I've already changed my mind twice this weekend about what books I will read for which squares.  Having recently finished reading LynDee Walker's Front Page Fatality (review coming soon), I suddenly found myself determined to finish reading the rest of the books available for this series and wondering how I can incorporate all of them into Bingo.

After deciding which squares will work and thinking that I'd use Walker as my Wild Card Author... I received a ping from an e-mail that a book I had on hold was ready for check-out.  Barbara Michaels' Houses of Stone had been a recommendation I put into the library's e-book system and they decided to add that book to their collection.  I really, really want to read this book after having seen some really good reviews.  So now I had to figure out how to include this book into my Bingo.

THEN, I finally got to reading Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire (which I will be finishing pretty soon, probably within the next few hours after posting this update), and so I'm considering continuing that series... but how to incorporate it into Bingo...

I finally decided to make a few compromises and so now we have a more solid plan for the rest of October... sort of.  I figure that as long as I have some sort of list to grab from as I finish each book, I might, just might, be able to Black out my card.  Maybe.  I'm still not entirely sure that I'll be able to Black out, but it's a better possibility than I'd had at the end of September after having only read about six Halloween Bingo books.

Anyway... very, very long story short:

I'm planning on reading, at least, the first three Nichelle Clarke books for Halloween Bingo.  It just so happens that the third book is called Small Town Spin, and what better square than 'Terror in a Small Town.'  The second book, Buried Leads will go into the 'Murder Most Foul' square.

 


Next, I'm choosing to insert Houses of Stone into the 'Terrifying Women' square.  That seems simple enough.

 


Finally, I'm totally dropping The Devil in the White City for now.  I'm not sure I can handle such a hefty book at this time, and I'm not really getting into it either.  Why I even chose to read it in the first place, I'm not sure, aside from the fact that it sounded interesting and I still needed a book for 'Creepy Carnivals.'  I'll probably come back to this book another time, because it still sounds quite interesting to me.  Had I had better progress in September for Bingo, I might have just stuck with it.  So instead, for 'Creepy Carnival', I'm going to be reading a short story by Seanan McGuire called Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea, from the Carniepunk anthology.

 


And now that I've rambled everyone's ears off... well, I guess I'm off to read so I can get caught up!

Ani's Book Abyss

 

 

Wild Card Author:

 


I haven't decided which author to use as my Wild Card yet, but I've been considering using Nora Roberts, as she is a writer of a lot of crime thrillers, romantic suspense, and supernatural, including the Circle trilogy I've chosen for this year's bingo.

Other authors I'm also considering are: Susanna Kearsley, who writes Gothic with a bit of supernatural; Elizabeth Peters, who has a lot of cozy mysteries; or another obvious option, Agatha Christie!
