I read a bind-up of this series that collected volume 1–8 all in one book. As soon as I saw the cover, I knew I needed it. Fall-themed body horror? Yes!Continue reading
“The dead deserve something,” she said, trying to explain in a way a layman might understand. “A remembrance, a marker, a place to rest. Death should be peaceful—the dead have earned that much. The bone houses—they’re a mockery of death. Burning them . . . it’s a last resort, not a way out.”

I love it when September is almost over. The end of September means October (the best month) is right around the corner, along with beautiful fall weather, 100 shades of orange, pumpkin-flavoured everything, and long evenings filled with reading.
Fall has always been my favourite time of the year to read in. There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book once the days start to get shorter.
My Octobers are always filled with scary books: suspenseful, invoking terror, haunting, and often filled with ghosts, goblins, headless horsemen, and other unexplained phenomenons. Reading scary books is not something that I really enjoy doing, but I make myself do it. It keeps me on my toes, allows me to experience new authors and writing styles, and exposes me to new sub-genres of horror that I might not have otherwise read. There are a lot of great things about reading new types of stories, but, on the flip side, scary stories are scary.
Happy first Sock Sunday of October! I’m kicking off my October reads with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. My Octobers are always spent reading creepy books, and this one seemed appropriate given the young, floating girl on the cover.
