Our Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier Community Wide Readalong is over at Ladies of Horror Fiction and we all had so much fun reading together and raving and ranting about things. You can read all of the posts at the Ladies of Horror Fiction website. We have another community-wide read planned for February and will be announcing the book very soon. I hope some of you will join us!
 


 New Purchases

I was pretty good about not blowing the budget this month (as much as it kills me) but I did purchase the Night Worms package and I'm so glad. Look at all of this Christmas horror goodness!


 
Oops, maybe I did blow the budget after all. I forgot I splurged on the Twitterstone box too . . .  and it was pretty excellent. 
 
 
And I just want to say that I am so very happy that these two good things arose from the flames left behind by the mess made by Nocturnal Reader's Box!
 
    
So, what are you all up to?

And these are all of the reasons that I am broke right now. The first pile was purchased at the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Fair. They are all signed! I met two fellow blogging friends, Char of Char's Horror Corner and Andi of Andreya's Asylum and it was so great to meet them in person. Next year I hope I can overcome my shyness a little better. It didn't stop me from spending all of my money in about ten minutes though! 
 
NEWS & REMINDERS: We continue to be busy little bees over at the Ladies of Horror Fiction website. We have new reviews, guest posts, interviews and episode #2 of the podcast was released on Tuesday. You can listen to it hereToni talks about the history of Halloween, urban legends featuring women, new releases, current reads and a whole lot more. 

 

Our Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier Community Wide Readalong starts November 4th. Are you ready?  Click on the pic below for all of the details.

I read some great books in June and am keeping my fingers crossed that my streak continues into July. Five of them were from my physical TBR pile but sadly two of those ended up being DNF's. One book wasn't for me, one tried to kill my dog and the last was just a mess.

Atop the TBR Pile In July:

Just like June, I'm hoping to catch up on more of my review copies, both audio & print, and am hoping to have a buddy read with my friend Char's Horror Corner. We'll see how that goes as the start to this month has been not so good and I am terrible Buddy Read partner! What are you all up to?

June is now ending with humidity and high temps. June was more of sweet month with the temp either really high and / or muggy. Hello Summer.. Bring in the pool and the outdoor reading. What a month it has been. I will not complain much as it been sunny and decent or sunny and hot. That I will take. The year is now half over. We have now make it though half a year. 

I have hit a slump when it hot or sticky it really been hard to read but I think i did quite good for this month with getting six books read. I am blaming the sticky weather. I am either tired or the weather got to me. This is what happens and I will sometime just relax on my bed and read if it is to sticky hot outdoors.

Well, looks like I read mostly great books so yay but only three of them were from my physical TBR pile. Better than zero, I suppose! I learned a few things when looking back at my books in May, mainly that I am pretty much finished with any sort of thriller written from the FBI or investigators POV and that I need to weed my tbr of most of the YA titles hiding in there because they don't grab me. Horror is still my first and forever love and twisted serial killers are still working for me but I do need a little romance thrown in to break up the darkness.

This month I'm hoping to catch up on my review copies, both audio & print, and maybe read at least one TBR book but that's not looking too good :) How's your June looking?
